Here's What You Missed This Week 10/13/13 - 10/19/13

I had another busy week. Halloween is like my Christmas. In addition to working on our costumes for a few hours, I've been mapping out the zombie craziness for our yard, and planning a kids' party. We're hosting seventeen kids from ages one to six. Or, in other words, two vegans, two apple sensitivities, a peanut allergy and a lactose intolerance. I think I'm going to take a page from Charlie Brown's neighbors and just serve rocks. Nobody's allergic to rocks, right?

Lest you think I'm an insensitive asshole, my kid is one of the apple kids, and I myself am a pollotarian, AKA "picky bitch." So there.

What I Wrote

I lent Outsmarted Mommy an old favorite. Once again, I expected to catch flack for it, and once again, I was met with nothing but support. I call bullshit on this whole "mommy wars" thing. My Breast is Not Best

Over In the Powder Room, I admitted that I totally judge all my neighbors when I take the boy trick-or-treating. I bet you do, too. C'mon, maybe just a little? Trick or Treat! P.S. I'm Judging You

I killed Theme Thursday this week. I'm sorry; I know a lot of you looked forward to it every week (no, you didn't), but it had become my least favorite chore. And that includes vacuuming. Vacuuming, dude! I went out with a bang by vlogging a zombie makeup tutorial. It's very crappy and awkward, but I salvaged it by making fun of myself in the captions. Enjoy! Theme Thursday is Dead. And I am Undead.

What I Read

Tracy of Momaical was In the Powder Room with a radical idea regarding education: let's teach the kids what they need to know to actually function in the world! Crazy, right?

Robyn of Hollow Tree Ventures has a new episode of As the Dollhouse Turns! Do you know about this? It's a soap opera about a dollhouse. Does that sound awesome? Because it is. And they have the must-have fall accessory, lice! Just trust me on this one.

Molley of A Mother Life has a unique perspective on U.S. rules and regulations, being from The Land Down Under. Did you know that the state of Connecticut values baptism over marriage? What does that mean? Click to find out about some weird DMV red tape, and how she slashed through it.

Jeannette from Mommy Needs a Martini was freaking out this week, because her daughter's crazy preschool wanted to put her on a bus. With no seatbelts and barely any adults. I don't even know the child, and I was freaking on her behalf. Her dad, however, was as cool as a cucumber. Check out his hilarious email.
