Can you cry underwater?

I bet my kids could since they both seem to be honing their crying skills to a fine art. Why not move the whole damned show to water? It worked for Cirque du Soleil.

So......Yeah, our kids are totally tag teaming us right now. One goes down quietly only to find the other one stirring, ready to wreak his/her own special brand of havoc. I think this is what they really meant by that whole "circle of life" concept.

I am still having a Harry Hangover, but at least am able to read magazines, so there is hope. By August 4th, I have to read The Road by Cormac McCarthy (you know, that really old guy who reproduces like Larry King*), so I need to stiffen my literary resolve. I am SO not excited about reading The Road, but 2 of my 3 book clubs are reading it, so at least I will get more bang for my reading buck.

I keep thinking about Harry and the Gang and all that happened to them. When I wake up at 3:30am to nurse Anjali, I am thinking about them. A book that has that kind of Linger Factor regardless of what you think about the flow or the ending? Is a classic. By the way, I am loving the Cerebral Venus book club discussion going on in the Why Wait? post below - be sure to post your Harry thoughts there (not here!). I will be there later tonight to add my 2 cents!

In other news, I am back to my pre-pregancy weight (below it actually). Unfortunately, one's body tends to get all "shifty" on you after having a baby, so that means parts aren't where they used to be. Ahem. Anyway, I am squeezed all snuggly-like into my pre-pregnancy pants again. However, don't hate me just yet - I have to look the 20 lbs I gained after quitting cigs straight in the eye and finally face the fact that I need to lose it. sigh.

*Read Jennifer Weiner's take on the guy.

He likes her, he really likes her!

Until he has to share his toys, that is.

Those two are just too precious! That last one of Anjali just cracked me up;>

I like #2. It's amazing how many features they share (I think one of you has a dominant big green eye gene...)

Also with you on being bummed about the HP series being done the WHOLE weekend, lol. My sister and I called each other four times to talk about how sad we are that the series is over.

Got your email, will respond tonight.

and finally...I still think you deserve kudos on doing everything in your power to avoid gestational diabetes and all the rest of it. If I got knocked up I'd be fisting samosas so fast you have no idea...

I absolutely love pictures of your kids. They are too cute. TOO CUTE!

I have to read some books for a review I need to do as well. Hopefully they will be good though!

Off to do an audit then to BlogHer. I'll check in with you on Monday!

I am very impressed with your weight. I have only gained two pounds so far, and I am thrilled. Its a strange sensation to worry about weight during pregnancy. With my first pregnancy, I started out at a low weight. So, I didn't worried about weight gain. With this pregnancy, I am constantly thinking about what and how much I am eating.

My turn is coming with the tag team crying, I just know it. I expect to be able to come here for all the "been there done that" advice! LOL

So cute!! We missed you this weekend at Blogher, but I know you were there in spirit. :)
