What Is Thicker Than Blood?

Me to my toddler daughter: WHOA! What happened? Are you hurt?

My daughter steps closer and so does my freaking out.

Me: WHAT HAPPENED!?!?! You’re bleeding! OMG, are you bleeding?

I reach out to touch her forehead as she stares at me.

Me: Blood? Holy crap! Are you okay? ARE YOU OKAY? YOU’RE IN SHOCK!

I rub my finger and thumb together. Slightly confused at her lack of crying but fairly convinced we’re in SILENT CRY BUILDUP mode, I do the ultimate test.

Me: Oh wait, it’s just chocolate.


The chocolate taste in my mouth that is.

PS. I am making some changes on my site to increase it’s speed because 97% of websites were faster than mine. (oops.) Part of the process is disabling some of my plugins including my mobile plugin. If you access my site on your phone or iPad or another mobile device, and you’re having problems with reading and accessibility, please let me know. Also, if you notice any of the other changes and think, WHERE IS ____? I MISS IT!, email me alex{at}lateenough{dot}com. I want to my site to be convenient and snuggly, not just fast.

PPS. Over in the sidebar towards the bottom is Google Friend Connect (GFC). If you use GFC to follow this blog, please switch to my RSS feed, ‘new post’ daily email or my weekly newsletter. Google is disabling the feature in a few months for any blogs outside of Blogger, and I don’t want to miss you.
