In a world of diapers and toys that are way too loud, the fabulous mommies of today can handle anything...and we do so in heels.

Of all the times my son can work my last nerve, there are a million other times he does something that just touches my heart. Recently we were at a park and we found a ladybug. I asked for his name and he said "Bob". He stared at it so intently and just watched it crawl over his fingers. Well, he decided to then take Bob down the slide but Bob flew away mid-journey. He looked at me with his hands out, shrugged his shoulders and asked "Bob?" I told him Bob flew home, he repeated me, and then went on down the slide. Such a cute interest in that ladybug made me forget all about the tantrum he threw that morning...

At least he obeyed

Recently as I was making lunch, my daughter, 7 months, was fussing on her blanket while my son, 2, was running through my kitchen driving me crazy. I asked him to go over to his sister and give her a toy and to kiss her head because she was sad (and to get him out of my hair). It couldn't have been more than 10 seconds and when I came around the corner, I saw this.

Hmm...he listened to me, but he was a little more "helpful" than I expected.

I almost didn't believe my eyes...

Attention my fashionable mommies: get to your closest Babies R' Us right away! Cynthia Rowley - CYNTHIA ROWLEY!! - has designed a line of baby clothes for them and they are adorable. Here is a picture of my daughter in the sweet pink sleeveless dress I got for her. The back of it is so cute and it flows out so nicely when I sit her down. I also saw tweed jackets for boys - unfortunately, they didn't have any in my son's size. Click here to check it out!

Room for four more in the delivery room?

This is a new show on MTV that I love. It's a show about four guys who ask "What do you want to do before you die?" They made up their own list and travel all around, attempting to cross off each item and in addition, help a stranger with something they want to do. The most recent episode was "Deliver a Baby". They sit in with a couple about to have their first baby. Don't worry, an actual ob/gyn delivered the baby and the guys were just in the room helping to count while the mom was pushing. You can click here to see the episode. As a mom of two, it was so fun to see these guys' reactions to being in a delivery room and actually seeing the baby once he was born (one guy was particularly nervous, which made me laugh out loud). They had tears in their eyes and dropped jaws at seeing this tiny little baby that wasn't there one second and there the next. It just goes to show how the birth of a baby is such an amazing experience, even if you're not the parent. I'm mostly impressed with the mom who 1) let these four guys in the delivery room with her and 2) that she looked pretty fabulous right after she gave birth.
