You may--or may not!--have noticed that I've been a little more absent than usual from my blogging. I can finally tell you that I've been involved with dLife in a new project called Blogabetes. It's a blog-like project with a number of contributors (many of them from The O.C.), and it's super exciting to see all of us working toward the same goal.

You can find the main Blogabetes page here. And me here.

A new kidism

I've said for a long time that No. 2 is a marketers dream. She could see an ad for Viagra and say "Mom, we need to get that." Lately, though, it's the hair product commercials that she's begging me to pay attention to so that my hair can be as shiny as the lady's on TV.

Yesterday, she and I were sitting together on the couch and she sneezed. I'm actually the one who's been sneezing non-stop lately thanks to late-summer allergies (phooey!). I said "Bless you" and she shook her head and said "Too much sneezing. That's why I need Beneful."

I laughed and told her that Beneful is dog food and wouldn't do anything for her sneezing. She looked confused and said that it would help her with her sneezing, itchy nose and throat, and watery eyes. I'm not sure if she heard me through my hysterical laughing tell her that it was BENADRYL not BENEFUL that would help her with all those symptoms.

She, of course, got mad that I was laughing because "MOM IT'S NOT FUNNY!"
