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 WroteI 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 ReadTracy 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.
Tweets I Enjoyed
The good news? It wasn't a bug. The bad news? I just beat the crap out of a black bean with my spatula.

It's not "lazy," it's "economy of movement."

I really hate the word "utilize" -- sounds like a gynecological disease
