I’m still here. Still pregnant. Still pissy. But now I hate fingers and pants.

October 25, 2012

Few things:

Yes I’m still pregnant. I’m still VERY pregnant. Not because I’m 38 weeks pregnant. But because I’m 5’2” and growing a 29 year old Khloe Kardashian inside of me. Body hair and all. When this child inches to the left, I pee my pants. When she inches to the right, I choke on my digested lunch.

As the CEO in the business of worrying about nothing, I am now focused to getting this baby to drop. Note: don’t google dropping baby. BAD. But here’s the deal: with a VBAC you need to dilate, even a little all on your own before you can have pitocin. Now I don’t WANT pitocin, but worry girl tells me that I’m not going to go into labor on my own and may need it. Pitocin only works if you have a ripe cervix (which is a nasty term. It’s not a plum). And to get that cervix ripe, baby needs to drop it down low low low. And she is perfectly happy where she is. What has dropped? A whole family of butt nuts. They are ripe and ready to be picked. SICK.

Um…what else…

OH the Big Boy Room. If you follow me on facebook, you know that I promised a big boy room reveal this week. Due to a lighting situation, that may not happen until Monday. Yes, a lighting situation. It’s a thing. Ask people who know things.

B and I are reading Natural Childbirth the Bradley Way. Can anyone tell me why the girl in the pictures is naked all the time? Like, “here is a woman in pre-labor, eating a snack. She is naked”. “here is a woman watching TV, she is naked”. I have said it before and I’ll say it again. I will not be naked during birth. No one wants that. NO ONE.

Things that are good right now:

American Horror Story. Yes and thank you yes.

Baking everything on Pinterest ever.

Mexican food.

Toddler naps. Always and 4ever.

Pumpkin anything. No I’m not over it.

Things that blow right now:

Pants. All of them. All the time.


Sausage fingers.

Convincing G to change his diaper like ever

So look for the next post to come soon which will feature the Big Boy Room, which I’m actually excited about and would be on the good list.

And to those of you who always think I’m in labor when I don’t post, I promise, I will post when I go into labor. Even if it’s just a one liner, I’ll let you all know that the door is opening.


For being so patient, I have a super awesome giveaway for you from one of our sponsors Alphabitty. They are the cutest company that does custom name art for kids or really weird adults I guess too. They are hand painted and totally customized to the child’s interests. So like, if your kid is like totally into Black Sabath, they can paint that shit up for you all death style. This would be such a cute shower gift too. I can say from personal experience that they are great to work with and really nice people too. But the best news is that they are giving away a print to a reader. So to enter, leave a comment and tell me your kid’s weird interests. I won’t commit you to choosing that for your print, I really just want to know weird stuff. I’ll pick a winner before the big boy room post.

    Sunsweet makes chocolate covered prunes now. They’re called Plum Sweets, because no one would buy Prune Sweets. Anyway, those worked for my butt nuts.

    • Abbey October 25, 2012 at 9:00 pm

      My 7 year old son is interested in becoming a rapper. He is about as close to being an albino as possible, and can’t carry a beat to save his life. He has decided his rap name will be ‘Dark Shadow’. I suggested ‘White Thunder’. It was a no go. We can’t all be winners in life. Thank god he is cute.
      Good luck with that baby. Being pregs is the worst, especially once the sausage fingers have set in.

  • Rae Rae October 25, 2012 at 8:50 pm

    Owen is obsessed with garbage cans, rubber bands, and string cheese wrappers. Who needs toys?

  • Kelsi October 25, 2012 at 8:52 pm

    Hi! I love love love your blog – even though I’m not preg…or close. But I’m the type A that bookmarks (before pinterest) all sorts of shit I’ll need some day – you have your own folder.

    Anyway – I just became a Godmama and would LOVE to be able to give this to my Goddaughter Madeleina for Christmas. Even though she’s too young to have interests beyond the boob and crib her room is adorable “chic princess” and I think she should be interested in sparkles and danny tanner…so that would be a good print.

  • robyn October 25, 2012 at 8:52 pm

    Milo told me he needs binoculars… For bird watching. He is three. And he loves his magnifying glass and any and all flashlights he can get his hands on. He regularly comes into the room i am in trying to do stuff and turns the light off and insists he can help with just his flashlight. It is infuriating.

  • Zak October 25, 2012 at 8:52 pm

    Email if you would like more info on the Bradley Method. I used that before Hypno.

  • tara October 25, 2012 at 8:54 pm

    baking anything on pinterest is always a good idea. especially with pumpkin.

    sausage fingers are the WORST. and pooping after taking a shower makes me have angry eyes.

  • Sabrina October 25, 2012 at 8:54 pm

    I had the same thought about the scary naked woman in that book – excessive nudity. And my kid is 9 months so his interests are pretty much anything shiny and things that are dangerous to babies.

  • Jodie Stipetich October 25, 2012 at 8:54 pm

    Ok so My daughter is into a mix of crazy this month but she is turning 13 (nov 3) and I think all teenagers are weird at this stage so her things are ballet, pointe shoes, music (by music I mean the child goes from rapping in the backseat to listening to classical because she’s “stressed”). Then there’s makeup (because we are 13 and of course we can rock some eyeliner). iPhone, iPad anything with an I. Nail polish, Instagram (because it makes everything amazaballs!). And finally Glitter because face it glitter makes everything prettier (and yes in middle school we make a lot of posters and yes glitter is involved in all of them!)

  • erynne October 25, 2012 at 8:58 pm

    I feel you on the 5’2″ and being pregnant w/ a 29 year old Khloe K. At 39 weeks I was asked id I was having TRIPLETS. Apparently I was too big for “just twins.” My husband had to hold me back from tackling the ‘innocent’ (HA!) man…it was the fastest I moved in months, trying to reach his jugular.

    Anyways, my giant baby is now 14 months old and since her interests are a mix of what it is clear she likes and what I can pick for her, here goes: Animals (dogs, mostly), music, books, accessories – shoes, purses, headbands (seriously…get ready for it, it starts early w/ girls),
    dirt, airplanes, cheese, and flowers.

  • Shannon October 25, 2012 at 8:59 pm

    My son is obsessed with remote controls, cell phones, wires and basically anything that he’s not allowed to touch or play with. Bonus points if it makes noise or lights up (ex: the t.v.)

  • Melissa October 25, 2012 at 9:00 pm

    My son, Jack, is obsessed with anything with wheels-cars, motorcycles, lawn mowers, and bubbles (ok no wheels there). Also anything edible within his reach, especially off the floor :(

  • gin October 25, 2012 at 9:00 pm

    I have a seven week old baby girl and our son turned two last week. Toddler naps are the best thing ever. Worst thing ever: in-laws. Also, the name art is adorable! My son is obsessed with: trucks, tractors, trains, balloons, the color pink and…chicken pot pie.

  • Danielle October 25, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    Erinne (pronounced Erin, my husband is a “funky speller” and it was a compromise- don’t ask…)
    Likes girly nautical things. Actually, she might not… But she is 5 months old and that is the theme to her nursery… Because I like it. 😉

  • Rachel October 25, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    I’m on board with all of the pregnancy-related symptoms listed above. EVERYTHING has been different with this pregnancy, I’m all bloated and gassy and have horrible skin and greasy hair. I was a glowing light of Disney Princess beauty with my first pregnancy. Growing babies is a tough job.

    Anyway, my toddlers weird interests include reading magazines on the potty, eating peanut butter off of the end of a butter knife, and digging for grub poop in a tree stump on our property. Oh, and anything skateboard-related, especially the Spitfire logo, which is basically a flaming head with a mouthful of sharp teeth (thanks to the hubby for that one).

  • Susan October 25, 2012 at 9:04 pm

    Hang in there!

  • AttachedMama October 25, 2012 at 9:05 pm

    I was obsessed with getting my baby to drop too. Hours bouncing on the birth ball, squatting, you name it… big ol’ waste of time. He didn’t until a couple of hours before he was born. So my assvice is don’t bother… go bake something instead!

    My son is obsessed with pouring buckets of water on himself, standing on top of all his toys (all the better to hurt himself), and learning how to run (he is 15 months so this involves a lot of sprawling headfirst into the tiles).

  • Brittany October 25, 2012 at 9:05 pm

    Girls are a fun mix of quirky with accessories . For example, my Harper mainly likes shoes and frogs. Her name made of frogs with shoes on would rock her world.

    Good luck! I went to 42 weeks, and felt every hour of it past the 38 week mark.

  • Erica October 25, 2012 at 9:05 pm

    My 4 year old daughter is obsessed with anything scary or related to super heroes. She bawled her little eyes out when we went to the state fair this year and I told her that she couldn’t go in the Haunted House. She likes to hide in closets or around corners and then jump out and yell “BOO!” when someone walks by. Did I mention she’s only FOUR?

  • Michelle October 25, 2012 at 9:06 pm

    My daughter likes puppies (though we don’t have one) and talks about them 75% of her day. Well, puppies and pooping, but I think I will pass on a poop themed name print :)

  • marybeth October 25, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    I have heard one women who has had 4 kids drank cod liver oil and all 4 came out the night she drank it.

  • Becky October 25, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    Good luck! She’ll drop when she’s ready and you’ll do great during labor.

    Now my son is only 4 mo old but I’m assuming he’ll have weird interests since I do. I could just pick some weird interests and hope he grows into them!

  • Hetha2 October 25, 2012 at 9:09 pm

    I hated pants at the end of my pregnancy, too. I wore the same dress almost every day for 4 weeks because I went 42 weeks with that bun in my oven. In July. Nuff said. Anyway, my nugget’s name is Jude and he loves boobie milk, owls, elephants and monkeys. And hanging out in his cloth diaper. But should I win, I don’t think you can make a letter out of a diaper.

  • Amanda @ Living on Grace October 25, 2012 at 9:09 pm

    1) i have the same question about the bradley book. is constant nudity required? when i was 85 months pregnant i was a never nude. and the DUDES are naked too. some of them are wearing tiny shorts. bradley needs to release a second book wherein they explain the nudity.

    2) you know your baby can drop in like, 30 min, right? you can be 100% not in labor and then BOOM, baby dropped, cervix ripe! it’s like putting an avocado in a paper bag. you think, “no way that thing will ever ripen by dinner…and then a few hours later, GUAC!”

    (and i guess i should enter the contest too. my son loves medicine bottles. he carries one in each hand at all times. i mean…i don’t let him have them! it’s dangerous!!!)

    • Kelley October 26, 2012 at 12:57 pm

      I really enjoy the avacado analogy.

  • Aren October 25, 2012 at 9:10 pm

    Ripen your cervix…what worked for me? Evening Primrose Oil. You can take a whole handful of the gel caps, or you can insert one at night. That’s right. Insert. Into your lady parts. Sounds gross, but SO worth it! I had an 11 hour labour and a 2.5 hour labour (yes, I’m Canadian and we add “u”s to labor. And color for that matter). If you’re up for it, every night before bed, pierce a gel cap, insert it as far as you can, put on a panty liner and go to bed. It will all desolve before morning. Don’t ask your OB, ask a midwife. Or your hippie friends!

    • Brandy October 26, 2012 at 7:33 am

      No no no no no no no.

      Apparently you weren’t here for her labor with Gavin.

  • Erica October 25, 2012 at 9:10 pm

    My 27 month old son is still really into my boobs even though he stopped breast feeding at 15 months. His dad is into my boobs to so no break for these b cups :)

  • Rachel October 25, 2012 at 9:14 pm

    My son is obsessed with a plunger. He wants to carry it around and hit things with it, including his Mom and Dad. (Don’t worry, we have an unused plunged just for him.) Best of luck on the butt nuts.

  • Bryn October 25, 2012 at 9:14 pm

    Hey at least you have a good list. I went to 42 weeks and I don’t think there was a good list. Can’t wait to see the big boy room!

    My daughter likes tofu, salsa, cords (and outlets) remote controls, boob milk (I’d love to see what they do with that), tiny bits of things on the floor, all animals and bath time. What? She’s 10 months old.

  • Meghann October 25, 2012 at 9:15 pm

    Hoping that baby drops down LOW, low, low for you soon, soon soon!
    My son Lucas loves COOKIES, Elmo, dogs, trucks, choo choos (trains), and milk (which is his name for boobies since he’s still bfing). Would be an interesting print…

  • anna October 25, 2012 at 9:16 pm

    Good luck… you are almost there!!

    My son Dolan loves spatulas, being outside, lizards, sticks, dogs, ducks (actually any bird- he calls them all ducks), sand, snails, feeding giraffes and puffs.

  • Kelli G October 25, 2012 at 9:17 pm

    My kid does not find pumpkin everything amazing. In fact, he doesn’t find anything pumpkin amazing. I find this weird. Even weirder than this is that he went through this little phase where he liked to lick people instead of kissing them. It was weird. Thankfully, he has moved on to bigger and better and slightly less weird things.

  • Kristin October 25, 2012 at 9:19 pm

    Love the prints! I am due one week behind you, so not sure what my little one is into yet (besides kicking!) but I would love the print for her nursery. I am currently reading the Bradley Method book also and am finding it a little hard to get through.

  • Tara October 25, 2012 at 9:21 pm

    Boy number one was a hospital birth with an epidural. Boy number two was born in August at home, no drugs. Somewhere in the last 2.5 years, shit got all earthy crunchy up in here. That is to say, you can do it. Girl power. (Also, my midwife says for swelling, eat one cucumber a day like it’s a prescription.)

    My 2.5 year old is into anything car/truck related. I think 90% of our conversations pertain to trucks. He is also recently into play-doh, candy corn, choc-o-late candy (specifically the snickers I bought for trick or treaters that he is steadily eating through one piece at a time), dressing up like a fireman, the moon and bumping his head into his baby brother.

  • liz October 25, 2012 at 9:22 pm

    My son is obsessed with excavation equipment! He is 2 and made up a song: diggies and dozers, diggies and dozers, diggies and doooooozeeeers! Diggies scooop and dozers puuuush! Diggies and doooozeeeerrrs! Good luck with everything, especially the b-nuts, still have them 2 years later. Also, you never know….you may end up completely nekkid 😉

  • Barb October 25, 2012 at 9:23 pm

    My son isn’t born yet but my husband is hoping that he is into comic books.

  • liz October 25, 2012 at 9:24 pm

    Also, i second the evening primrose up the jajay!

  • Tiffany October 25, 2012 at 9:24 pm

    That magic that B makes to make the babies has hormones in it that will help to soften your cervix. So this is me telling you to hit that! (And I don’t mean physical abuse, unless he’s like Christian Grey.)

  • Jen October 25, 2012 at 9:25 pm

    My two year old daughter has a slight obsession with the Rocky movies. Like, she can tell the difference between the running scene in Rocky I and Rocky II (which are pretty much the same), can do a mean Mr. T impression, and sometimes has me hum the running up the stairs music in a sing-songy way while she goes to sleep.

    The end of pregnancy is rough, I’m 3 months into my pregnancy with #4 and already not looking forward to the end. Not that this will be reassuring to you at this point, but, on average, second babies tend to drop later than first babies – often not until close to labor begins. I don’t really know any ways to encourage a comfortable fetus to drop into position, but there are several things to do to get some contractions going, which can also cause dilation.

    • Cat October 26, 2012 at 12:55 am

      I’m dying imagining what your daughter’s name art would look like with Mr. T in it

  • Holly Flodin October 25, 2012 at 9:27 pm

    My daughter loves mermaids! She would love this in her room!

  • Shan October 25, 2012 at 9:31 pm

    Sloane (2 on Dec 14th) is obsessed with making sure her own belly button did not disappear, turning any conical shaped object into a breast pump and “pumping” (for my 5 month old nephew of course like a wet nurse), the moon (which she refers to as “a moon” like she’s from a planet with more than one) and the jeopardy theme song.

    • Shan October 25, 2012 at 9:33 pm

      Also— totally agree on the Bradley book/method pictorial…although I did the Bradley method and I did end up in just a bra– because the pain made me so damn hot. Best of luck! Here’s hoping for some ripening (you are right, that is sick).

  • Amanda B. October 25, 2012 at 9:33 pm

    My 14 month old daughter’s favorite activity is stirring her (beloved) baby doll in the toilet with the toilet brush! Mother of the year award please! I find her doll in the toilet daily, usually with her still stirring it. The troubling thing is that she HATES baths its torture for us all…so in short she’s into torturing her baby doll.

  • Sierra October 25, 2012 at 9:33 pm

    My niece Paisley (I’m scared shitless to have my own baby partly because I’m a nurse and God would punish me with a devil child) She LOVES sticking goldfish crackers up her nose, your nose, even the cat, who patiently waited and didn’t claw her eyes out until she finally decided it wasn’t happening.

    For what it’s worth I was obsessed with sticking pills down my throat, no locked medicine cabinet at my house. The kicker was my mom had my demented great grandmother babysit me and as a 3 year old convinced her I needed a bottle of Tylenol!

    • Brandy October 26, 2012 at 7:34 am

      Totally thought that said Parsley.

  • Erica October 25, 2012 at 9:42 pm

    Both my son and daughter are obsessed with their schedules. Everyday it’s what are we doing Sunday? (and it’ll be Tuesday) or where are we going tomorrow? What do we have to do in 3days? What’s for breakfast (it’s 6pm) *sigh* This would be half cute if it wasn’t Every.GD.Day.. It drives me bat shit crazy….

  • Steph October 25, 2012 at 9:42 pm

    My 2 year-old is obsessed with smelling candles…like, I have to run past the candle section at the store. I’m pretty sure he’s going to be a pyro. I would like to see them incorporate that into a picture.

  • Ellen October 25, 2012 at 9:43 pm

    My 10 month old daughter, Jane, likes ice cubes, nursing and picking things off the floor to eat. So, frozen water, boobs and crusties. Those are her interests. (Maybe pretending her interests are animals and flowers would be best)

    I was one of those naked Bradley Birthing mamas…in the throes of labor I didn’t even know I had gotten naked. I thought I would have on a cute sports bra and look all sporty, or keep on the bikini top I wore in the birthing tub. I was more like a sweaty, fuzzy-haired mess. I figure, when someone has to help you spray off your vag with a peri bottle after taking your first pee, what’s naked matter?

  • ashleigh b October 25, 2012 at 9:44 pm

    My son is obsessed with shoes, bags, and hair do-dads

    wouldnt be weird if he was a girl but he is a boy living in a man filled house…but obviously spends too much time with his stay at home mom.

  • Katy October 25, 2012 at 9:44 pm

    My daughter is exactly the same age as G. She is obsessed with grocery lists! She loves “writing” the list and telling me what goes on it and reciting the list is the only thing that keeps her from steaming her head off when she gets dropped off at “school”. She does like some normal things like ducks and brooms and toothpicks. Totally normal.

  • Lauren @ T&G October 25, 2012 at 9:48 pm

    After reading your birth story, I refused to try any/all at-home interventions because a natural birth was so important to me… What I ended up with was a gigantic baby that had to be “medically” induced after going 10 days past my due date (he’s 14 days old now). Oh, and a lot of extra stretch marks. I actually went into labor on my own the morning of the induction, but I just wanted to give you a heads up (even though I am sure you already know this) that pitocin contractions are like a guantanamo bay level of torture. For me, the difference between natural contractions and pitocin contractions was equal to the difference between being pinched and having your hand cut off with a butter knife. It took about 30 minutes before I knew I had to have an epidural. And this was after nine months of studying every form of natural pain management and spending tons of money on childbirth classes. Also, I was about 80% effaced and 3cm for three weeks and my baby never officially “dropped.” Hang in there for the next couple of weeks, and I am so rooting for you and a successful VBAC!

  • Mary October 25, 2012 at 9:51 pm

    My 23 month old is into the standard boy stuff but a few of his favorite things are worms (he is constantly asking to dig for wormies), playing the harmonica (his favorite is pink), and of course wearing mom’s shoes around the house (he knows exactly were my black, 3″ heel sling backs are stored as well as my sock monkey slippers). He actually does really well in heels. Hopefully it is a phase and not a career choice; though I will help so his costumes if needed :)

  • Lisa October 25, 2012 at 9:52 pm

    My toddler is obsessed with feeding our dog. If the bowl is half empty or less she dumps it out and screams Hungreen! If we don’t fill that bowl immediately, major meltdown.
    At least while I’m living with no sleep and baby brain, I’ll never forget to feed our fur baby :)

  • Lisa October 25, 2012 at 9:52 pm

    I VBAC’d @ 38(ish) weeks & attribute my “early” delivery to bouncing on an exercise ball @ night. I. Was. Done .

  • Lauren October 25, 2012 at 9:52 pm

    loved this post because it sums up basically everything I felt at that stage of being pregs. I thought the naked woman in the Bradley method was super awk too—there is one pic where I swear hubs looks naked too. Why?? Why?

    My 14 mos old drama baby currently has several weird interests. One of his obsessive ones is the pamphlets that come inside DVDs. Like seriously he stares at each and every picture inside the pamphlet and makes me “read” the pamphlet 1000 times in a row. He carries it everywhere and we are now buying DVDs just to get new pamphlets to keep him calm. What the what!

    Hope your butt nuts move out soon! Xoxo

  • kathryn October 25, 2012 at 9:53 pm

    My 3 month old likes: having explosive poops, being held all day, smiling (thank god), and pretty much being a mini diva all around! Girl has the best wardrobe ever and I am over here looking like I am still prego!

  • Erin October 25, 2012 at 9:54 pm

    My 14 month old son, O, for some reason is totally into tampons. He goes straight for the bathroom closet where they live, then crawls around the house scattering them like fairy dust. I also just found out that I’m preg this week with #2 :) woooo!!

  • julie s. October 25, 2012 at 9:54 pm

    My 18-mo daughter really likes shoes, dogs, balls (probably dogs’ balls if I let her near some), string cheese, biting me (not really interested in biting anyone else), leaves, sticks, strawberries, pointing at cats and eating rocks. And some other stuff, too. And, for your sake, I hope you can ripen up that cervix sometime real soon (yeah, typing that made me feel pretty gross).

  • Susan October 25, 2012 at 9:55 pm

    My 22 month old is really into ‘boobies’ and ‘who whos’… WHY did I ever tell her that’s what we call our boobs and vaginas?!?!? Why?!?!? She may or may not have announced in a public restroom that ‘Momma who who go pee pee’… AWESOME!

  • Katie October 25, 2012 at 9:56 pm

    32 weeks preggo…I hate pants too.

    18 month old son’s weird interests include taking out all the baking sheets/pans and then putting the baby doll (we bought to prepare him for #) on the baking sheet and then taking off all its clothes. Not sure if he is planning on cooking #2 or what…

  • Sarah October 25, 2012 at 9:57 pm

    Sweet giveaway… Thanks! Umm, my child is 29 weeks old and has the same interests as your fetal Kardashian when it comes to smashing bladders/butt nuts. Sucks. He also enjoys naps and Wegman’s sugar cookies, if that translates to art. Pick us!!!

  • LouiseH October 25, 2012 at 10:03 pm

    MODG, I’m right there with you: 39 wks preggo and hating pretty much anything pretty! I also have a 22 month old and here are his weird interests of late: bouncing naked on our bed, wearing hats inside and outside, taking his shoes and socks off in the car (I thought this would end at some point but it hasn’t), pointing to his crotch and saying Hot Dog – which I always thought meant his penis until I realized he was calling his Mickey Mouse Huggies diapers Hot Dog because of the song on the cartoon.

    • Pickle October 29, 2012 at 1:17 pm

      Too funny, Louise!

  • Sarah October 25, 2012 at 10:05 pm

    1. I had pitocin with a TOTALLY unripe cervix at 36 weeks pregnant and had my baby later that afternoon vaginally. (not without the epi though…just thought I’d tell you that it could still work without a ripe cervix.)
    2. Our babies were born on the exact same day- December 8, 2010. :) My baby is somewhat of a drama baby as well. And by somewhat, I mean she is a total drama queen.
    3. Her name is Blakely, and she loves all animals- especially dogs, hippos, pigs-, being outside ALL of the time, the color pink, PBJs, play dough, the park, and dancing.

  • Karina October 25, 2012 at 10:11 pm

    My 4 year old girl is obsessed with dogs, particularly ones that look like our dogs (by the way, EVERY dog we come across looks like one of our dogs.. Also, two words – GANGNAM STYLE. My daughter could watch that video all day, every day if we let her. Love the blog! good luck with baby 2! (I went 42 weeks and had to be induced with my daughter. NOT COOL.)

  • Katie E. October 25, 2012 at 10:12 pm

    I am willing to bet you are doing some squats here and there, trying to shake her down. I never dilated with either of my boys and I had pitocin with both. But I’m Southern and I had an epidural so it was all good.

    My G’s interests: drawing maps and schematics for punkin’ chunkin’, MythBusters, Legos, and soccer. If there were a way to combine them, he would do it gleefully. He’s almost 6.

    Little M’s interests: dogs, balls, loud trucks (could give a flying rat turd about cars, cats, and square things) He’s almost 2.

  • Ginger October 25, 2012 at 10:13 pm

    Hmm clara’s weird interests at 20 months….. Darwin, walking backwards, and hamburger buns.

    Hope little one comes soon and best of luck with the vbac!!!

  • sarah chew October 25, 2012 at 10:15 pm

    I realllllly hope your baby comes soon, I def understand the discomfort! I have a crazy 3 year old little girl names Alexis….she likes dead bugs and she puts them in little boxes to keep around. She also likes butts, any butts but mostly hers. Lexi thinks all boys are handsome and that they look like price charming. And what little girl doesn’t like all the princess stuff?

  • Courtney October 25, 2012 at 10:22 pm

    We are living the same life right now. Due November 4; which as of tomorrow is less that 10 days away. Baby is high, and according to my dr my cervix is “not really thinking about labor any time soon.” And yes, butt-nuts. To the point where I threw a shit fit last week and DEMANDED a lidocaine prescription for those things. Son of a bitch pooping is such a PROCESS these days. How am I supposed to “walk this baby out” if I can’t fucking walk more than a block???

  • Melissa October 25, 2012 at 10:29 pm

    D,my15 month old, loves shoes and socks and everything feet. I’m shooting for podiatrist, not al Bundy the shoe sales man.

  • Sarah Macon October 25, 2012 at 10:36 pm

    My 2 year old eats her boogers, that is not weird. She does however say, “swiper no swipe” when she wipes her ass and loves to tell me my mouth spells awful and she forgot to pass out. Her name is Scarlet, I need to win this.

  • Bethany Grannan October 25, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    My little one loves the swiffer! So I just put a duster on it an let him swiff away! Best wishes modg. Butt nuts are no joke!

  • Jesse October 25, 2012 at 10:43 pm

    I am not one of those freaky chiro obsessed people but I do go when I’m preggo and once a week at the end. Find a good chiropractor with lots of preggo lady experience and that little lady will drop. And your lower back will feel relief… do it. My almost 3 year old little girl loves tagging the walls of our house with crayons, sandwiches, pink ninjas, faeries and butterflies.

  • Skooks October 25, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    Evening Primrose Oil . . . for the ripening.

    Also – I have a kid who sleeps in the weirdest positions. Sorry . . . not very dark or crazy, but it’s still bizarre to pass his room on the way to bed and see what appears to be a disembodied head in the hallway because the rest of his body is obscured under his bed.

  • L. Boyd October 25, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    Oh girl I so feel for you! Good luck with the vbac, man I’m just jealous your able to have the opportunity! My last of three was the c-section and honestly the idea I’d have to have another was enough for me to be satisfied with three little girls!

    Love the art print, My oldest girl is obsessed and I mean all out crazy about Star Wars, thanks hubby for that one ; )

  • Amanda Vallejo October 25, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    Oh boy, I’m just so excited to get on with this second pregnancy. I’m only 8 weeks and everything is already so different.

    Anyway, as far as my daughter’s weird interests go we’ve got licking the kitchen floor (thank God for my Shark floor steamer), acting like a kitty and anything involving bugs /gross shit. Apparently I’m raising a tom boy. Insert sad face here.

  • Emily October 25, 2012 at 10:50 pm

    Successful v-bac-er here. Constipation does wonders for dilating! Not so much for the butt nuts, but with all that pushing and straining, I walked along dilated to 4 cm for, like, 2 weeks thanks to a serious round of constipation! TMI, I know, just trying to spread a little sparkle where the sun don’t shine….
    Also, went into labor all by myself (unlike the first time), no pitocin (unlike the first time), you’ll do it too!

  • Emily October 25, 2012 at 10:50 pm

    C loves black beans. I’m pretty sure he would eat three cans a day if I let him :-/

  • Kristie October 25, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    I don’t know how weird this is, but my 20-month-old daughter is obsessed with apples. She eats about 3 a day and its one thing I can use to distract her when she’s about to have a meltdown. Thanks the giveaway and hang in there!

  • Nicole October 25, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    Hope that baby drops it like it’s hot. My 2 yo son is really into licking things.

  • Lindsay Hutchins October 25, 2012 at 11:11 pm

    My 3.5 year old is into WWF wrestling thanks to his dad. (Ugh, how annoying and embarrassing). But, he only watches the wrestlemania’s that my husband has on VHS from when he was a kid. My husband doesn’t have the heart to tell him that 90% of the wrestlers he is watching are dead now…(steroids, much??)

  • Kristen October 25, 2012 at 11:17 pm

    My daughter likes spiders. And animals. And ambulances. If they can make that into a cohesive, not crazy looking, name print, I’d buy that!

  • Kim October 25, 2012 at 11:20 pm

    LOVE your blog! Makes me laugh out loud every single time. My daughter, Emma, just turned one! Her interests are-our two cats, daddy, bath time, putting all paper products in her mouth, remote controls, cell phones, & carrying around a little orange ball w/ her everywhere she goes. Wishing you a healthy & happy delivery.

  • Erika Batista October 25, 2012 at 11:26 pm

    My son loves his toes, yes to lick his little piggy toes while eating! He is weird.

  • Allyson October 25, 2012 at 11:32 pm

    I’m not pregnant and I like all those things. Except butt nuts… I’m not a freak for Britney’s sake.

  • Heather October 25, 2012 at 11:33 pm

    My obsession was getting my son to turn head down. He finally did, but still came out sunny-side up.

    He is 3 now and obsessed with trains, fire engines, bugs of all kinds (ants, spiders, pill bugs), Jack Skellington from the Nightmare Before Christmas, talking all the time, swords, and listing for me all his friends at school and every family member we will see at Christmas, every day. And anything with sugar, especially gummy bears “from the Black Forrest.”

  • Laura Ashley October 25, 2012 at 11:44 pm

    My 4 year old daughter has had an obsession with her “dirty pillow” or as she sometimes says, “my dirty.” She gets very upset if we wash it or if her 10 year-old uncle threatens to wash it. This pillow is memory foam and weighs as much as she does yet since age 2 she has been carrying it around the house, up and down stairs, like a boom box (google it, kids). So the first “dirty” was accidentally peed on by her when she was potty training and that foam just remembered WAY too much so it had to be trashed. She screamed night after night, “MY DIRTY!!!!” and flailed around. So we bought another one. It has been accepted by her and despised by the rest of my 7 person family because of its omnipresence. Last week she peed on her bed at nap time and came downstairs to tell me that and added “but, Mom, I was a hero because I saved my baby and my dirty pillow from getting into the pee.” Hero. Yes, ok. Now what do I do about your mattress?

    Btw, I get SO excited when you talk about Butt Nuts. I was healing from a C-section after having my twins when I read the first one and I’m pretty sure the laughing/sobbing of joyous tears caused my recovery to suffer a setback.

    Take Care MODG, we’re all hoping the absolute best for you and your family!

    • Laura Ashley October 25, 2012 at 11:50 pm

      Her name is Charlotte…probably an important detail for this entry in particular. Dirty pillows aren’t her entire life…she also is a complete girly girl…shoes, sparkles, the permanent tiara on her head, and nail polish.

  • Maranda October 25, 2012 at 11:45 pm

    My son is 15 months and he is really into cars, trains, usual boy stuff. He also loves toothbrushes–he likes to carry his around before bedtime, always tries to steal his big brother’s toothbrush, and even tries to brush my teeth…maybe he’ll be a dentist someday!

  • Jess M. October 26, 2012 at 12:17 am

    My son is currently obsessed with seeing the food in your mouth after its been chewed and seeing the poop in his diaper after you’ve changed him. Yup. Awesome! Also, Wheel of Fortune. Those are his weird obsessions.

    LOVE your blog! Hope YoSHE drops soon!

  • Lisa M October 26, 2012 at 12:19 am

    My 1 and a half year old daughter, Charlotte, is currently obsessed with brushing her teeth. She’ll walk around for hours with her toothbrush and hoards ours if she gets her hands on them. Her other favorite obsession is dinosaurs. A dinosaur roar was her first animal sound. Other than that she’s a total girly girl. So weird. A dinosaur/toothbrush sign would be her dream come true.

  • JULI C October 26, 2012 at 12:28 am

    I’m sorry my kids are normal.
    My daughter is into tinkerbell, we’ve seen the latest movie a billion times!!!!
    My son likes Mario Bros. He will be Mario for Halloween…

    Good luck with the whole delivery birth thing. Hope it goes smoothly.
    Sorry can’t help you there, i had 2 c-sections 361 days apart…. done and done!

  • Ashley October 26, 2012 at 12:30 am

    My daughter McKinley is 20 months and her biggest obsession aside from snacks all freaking day long is…! Literally we could be on its a small world at Disneyland with Minnie Mouse sitting next to us and she would stop to check out a rock. No matter where we are or what were doing she manages to find one and yes she always does a taste test. Hahahaha

  • Patty October 26, 2012 at 12:38 am

    My son (Jonathan) is fascinated with Super Mario Brothers. His third and fourth birthday parties were Mario themed (and as of now, the fifth will be, too!). He’s dressed up as mario two years in a row for Halloween. We cannot go anywhere without taking the stuffed Mario and Luigi.

    I even carved a Mario pumpkin yesterday! He loves it!

  • Andi October 26, 2012 at 12:43 am

    Fingers crossed YoShe drops soon and Pitocin, if necessary, goes easy on you.

    My 20 month old son loves the following things: Ahi (aka airplanes), Bub Bub Bub (helicopters), Bees (all insects except butterflies… butterflies are La-dee-das), Ducks (ducks, trucks, and cars…they are all ducks), and pulling my dog’s tail while cackling like a hyena (the giant 100 lb lab generally referred to as the horse…at the petting zoo he calls the Shetland pony the dog). He unfortunately gets time outs for the tail pulling as my horse doesn’t mind it, but other dogs might mind quite a bit.

    I think visitors to our home would benefit from this super cute name painting if only to act as a cipher to his cryptic lingo.

  • Tracey October 26, 2012 at 12:56 am

    Dude, my kid is not weird. No weird habits. How dare you??

    Kidding… My kid is only three months old… Haha… So nothing weird yet. I’m sure there will be plenty of weird habitsin our future!!!

    Good luck!!! Hope you have a great -and very easy- delivery!

  • Kelly October 26, 2012 at 1:07 am

    My 14 month old likes to find my belly button and lay his head on my stomach. No clue why, but he does it I’ve and over. And no, im not pregnant!

  • Natalie October 26, 2012 at 1:08 am

    My baby LOVES monster trucks!! Or maybe I’m wishing that he will love monster trucks since I painted a huge monster truck mural on his walls before he could decide for himself!

  • RiverMomma October 26, 2012 at 1:09 am

    My baby just tuened one and this would be a super awesome bday gift for him! And no lie, loves reading Modg blog with Mommy, i think its your amazeballs drawings!
    My swert boy loves any and all owls, and is obsessed with the movie Tangled!
    He has decided that he now hates having his diaper changed, but is instantaneously totally cool with it if he can scrape a plastic lid.across the wall over and over! Forget toys and other. “normal” baby distractions, let him scrape a lid along the whole and he’s golden.
    Also forget about taking his snacks away, but sharing them with the dog makes him happier than eating them himself!
    Dog bowls are another favorite., possibly the greatest thing in his world and an ultimate goal e goals in life is finally gting into those bowls# He also loves rockin’ out to Lady Gaga, as well as soms classic Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Beatles, andElmo’s Music Magic, among many manyrs, he’s definitely got eclectic music tastes, which is awesome u ask me!buover joys

    • RiverMomma October 26, 2012 at 1:26 am

      Apolgize for the typos! And I certainly don’t like to beg…..
      But I can tell you that my baby boy would LOVE and GREATLY APPRECIATE you choosing him for this fabulous give away, not only Bc he is super cool, but Bc can it get any cooler than winning a priize from his number one bloger/ super awesome paint photo greater IN HONOR OF HIS FIRST BIRTHDAY?! THANKS FOR.CONSIDERING HIM, REGARDLESS OF THE OUTCOME, AND BEST WISHES TO YOU, B, G, AND YOUR AMAZING NEW ADDITION OF A PRECIOUS BABY GIRL!

      est of luck delivering Momma- my baby boy and I are sending positive vibes your way!

      And also asking you to “PICK MY SEET LITTLE BIRTHDAY B

      • RiverMomma October 26, 2012 at 1:50 am

        AH, again with the typos and posting before I finish Ahh! Annoying so I apologize! Clearly I was attempting to end with this:
        And.again, much love from us to you, with tons of positive vibes, and hippy magic being sent your way for your vbac and to U, B, G, and baby girl Momma Modg! YOU GOT THIS!

  • Leyna October 26, 2012 at 1:15 am

    My 3.5 year old is really, really in to rockets, soccer, and my boobs (my “nurse”). He was gently weaned 2 years ago, so I really don’t get it. It’s like being 13 again and having a creepy middle school boyfriend go in for the hug but “accidentally” getting some boob action. So. Annoying. That’d be a fun name picture–rocket, soccer ball, Mom’s tits.

  • K October 26, 2012 at 2:13 am

    I just want to leave an I hope encouraging note to say that I had a vbac and I never felt that the baby had dropped ahead of time, didn’t have on again off again contractions, nothing, until my due date, when I woke up with contractions and then had 7 hours of labor from beginning to end, including going from 5cm to 10 in 20 minutes. THIS IS NOT A BRAG. It is just meant to be an encouraging word (I hope) to say that even if it seems like nothing is happening now, things can still be fine and happen on their own and not need intervention, and I wish you all those things. Have a fantastic vbac. xo (Disclaimer to everyone: I know everyone has a different experience, I know it can be really hard and need intervention, I know intervention is good when needed, I know and believe. Just saying…sometimes it is ok. )

  • smashleighmm October 26, 2012 at 2:33 am

    Fern, 3, is obsessed with roller skates, pogo sticks and Peppa Pig. Amelia, 1.5, is obsessed with monkeys, pens and pencils and her bouncy horse. They both go crazy for shoes, swings and Party Rock.

  • erin October 26, 2012 at 3:18 am

    I knew I would never be one of those crazy naked women in labor and then the day came and I said fuck it because the damn hospital gown + pitocin made me a crazy person. greatest memories were of me, butt naked on the toilet with three nurses and a doctor telling me I really didn’t have to poop…I just needed to have a baby.

    Praying you don’t need the bitch that is pitocin. And get out and slowly jog…if it makes you pee, who cares – wear a pad and start jogging. that baby will drop in no time.

  • Kristin Leigh October 26, 2012 at 3:28 am

    Oh my Buddha on a cracker, I want one of these! My daughter, Zoë, is 17 months old and she loves lots of things, naturally. But the weird things she loves are Popsicle sticks. I eat these amazing coconut ice cream bars for dessert and she loves the sticks that they come on. To the point that she will sleep at night holding on to one. She loves to sleep holding small, hard things. Like a spoon, a stick, a cell phone, a toy bus her grandma got her in England. No teddy bears for this kid, nope.

  • Rachel October 26, 2012 at 6:47 am

    My mom used the Bradley Method on her third baby and said she wished she’d had that book on the previous two. All three of us were non-medicated vaginal deliveries (whatever it’s called, idk) I’m like, “Go, mom!”

    P.S. Can’t wait to see pics of your little Kardashian!

  • K-sups October 26, 2012 at 6:54 am

    My kid isn’t born yet but his recent interest has been kicking me in the vagina. He only does this when I’m in meetings with lame-o’s who wouldn’t appreciate me leaning over and informing them of said activity.

    Does that count?

  • Kolleen October 26, 2012 at 7:10 am

    Isla just had her first birthday party two weeks ago and evidently the best gift ever for a one-year-old is a $.33 ribbon that she will not let go of…ever.

  • Stina October 26, 2012 at 7:17 am

    Pitocin is a freight train from hell. Avoid it at all costs. Like give birth to an eight-year-old avoid it.

  • kodate October 26, 2012 at 7:18 am

    the weird thing that my kid is into = laser hands.
    I mean, I get it.

  • kodate October 26, 2012 at 7:19 am

    PS. He’s 3ish.

  • Erica October 26, 2012 at 7:23 am

    My 3 yr. old is into picking her finger nails, toe nails, lips and scabs. We’ve had two infected fingernails this past week. That sh*t is nasty to drain and keep clean.

  • Erin B. October 26, 2012 at 7:35 am

    My daughter (20 mos) is totally obsessed with this emergency hazard flashlight that shines, and blinks, and can turn into a whistle. She either shines the light in her eyes or uses it for a drumstick. Toddlers are weird.

  • Fran October 26, 2012 at 7:36 am

    My son is obsessed with trucks, hats and books. All nice, predictable boy things.

  • Brandy October 26, 2012 at 7:39 am

    You WILL go into labor on your own! You just didn’t get much of a chance to last time! No interference. Avoid the pitocin. You have plenty of time (NOT what you want to hear, I know).

    PS – My 12 month old loves socks. She loves trying to put her socks on. She loves wearing daddy’s socks (yes). She loves trying to put daddy’s socks on him (mommy hates socks). She also tries to eat them sometimes. I’m waiting for her to put socks on the cats.

  • Leslie@MsMagpieWrites October 26, 2012 at 7:54 am

    I don’t have a child yet but I might soon. When I do, I assume its interests will be the same as mine: NPR, the works of David Sedaris, and Belvedere vodka.

  • Amanda October 26, 2012 at 7:57 am

    Good luck dropping your baby!

    My son, Charlie, is interested in secretly putting things in the toaster bread slots and Yoda.

  • Leanne October 26, 2012 at 8:00 am

    I don’t think I have ever commented before but I LOVE your blog. I feel your pain – my son was born at 41 weeks. On January 11… I was SURE he would come between Christmas and New Years. That would have been considerate and convenient. I have to keep going to work, it sucked. :) misery loves company!

    My boy is just 9 months so he doesn’t have interests, let alone weird ones… He does pull his socks off and put them in his mouth …

  • Steph October 26, 2012 at 8:09 am

    So I’m 40 weeks and one day today and if you go into labor before I do, I will be SO. PISSED.

    Also, if this kid could make her grand appearance before this supposedly epic storm that’s supposed to hit the Philadelphia area next week, that’d be great. Hear that kid? Time to come out now!

  • Amy V October 26, 2012 at 8:11 am

    My 19-month old is into two things…Star Wars and being naked. Frankly, it’s a shame my son is not a girl, because he would probably be great at birthing someday since he’s awesome at being naked and he can breathe like Vader (kind of like Lamaze) and also can make noises like Chewbacca…which as I recall, were similar to the noises I made while birthing my children. So…fingers crossed for the big win.

  • The Other Jen October 26, 2012 at 8:36 am

    “A whole family of buttnuts”

    This is why I check back fairly often to see if you have a new post. Love it.

    Oh, my kid loves birds. And by “loves” I mean i have an 8 month old and I painted her nursery in purple and brown and birds. So nothing is going in that damnable room unless it matches. Or makes her sleep. Or is free. Bring on the free stuff.

  • Lacey October 26, 2012 at 8:49 am

    Hope sweet baby girl makes her appearance soon!

    My daughter loves fruit, fruit, and cell phones. And fruit.

  • Lacey October 26, 2012 at 8:59 am

    My youngest is obsessed with cleaning the toilet. He’s two. Every morning while I’m getting ready he comes into my bathroom and asks to clean the toilet; if he barges in while I’m using the toilet, he asks to clean it; if we are in a public bathroom, he asks to clean it. I’m not sure if it’s the blue liquid or the scrubbing but he’s obsessed. Either way – I have a fantastically clean toilet!

  • Katy October 26, 2012 at 9:04 am

    My 17 month old is obsessed with: brooms, lawn mowers, garbage cans, vacuums, trucks, and eggs. Weird enough?

  • kiki October 26, 2012 at 9:06 am

    Not really a “weird” interest but my duaghters (yes girls think this is totally hilarious too) are all about bathroom humor. The pee, the poop, flinkers. And will find 50 different ways to say it when I told them I had enough – like changing the words are going to make a difference. I have not yet explained to them that MODG is the only place I want to here about this sh$&%^. Oops :)
    I think they will both grow up to be avid MODG readers.

  • Casey @ The Baker Bee October 26, 2012 at 9:19 am

    1. I read the Bradley method book and thought the same thing about naked lady. Weird, man.
    2. My 2 year old is really into his Big Woody. I do a lot of explaining that this is his big Woody doll from Toy Story. He’ll walk into a room and scream “I have my Big Woody!!!” Nice. He also loves pirates and fire trucks, but that’s not weird or funny.

  • Sara October 26, 2012 at 9:30 am

    yay for Bradley birthing
    Boo for butt nuts
    yay for giveaways! I don’t know if I would say my 10 mo old has “interests” other than putting everything in her mouth… including our Boston Terriers… but she does love the stuffed elephants in her crib!

  • Hanna October 26, 2012 at 9:31 am

    Charlotte is obsessed with Baby Beluga and becoming a child-sized hoarder…. Is it too early for an intervention?

  • kat October 26, 2012 at 9:37 am

    Good luck – hope that that baby drops like asap.

  • Amy @ drivethirtythree October 26, 2012 at 9:39 am

    my daughter is obsessed with Popsicle and fruit snack. she’s like a heroine addict with those things. not sure how that would translate into a cute picture but hey, it is what it is.

    love your blog. you rock my socks.

    butt nuts suck and they never ever really go’s like the hibernate and you think “yay! they are gone” and then they got “ah ha! gotchya sucka…we’re back!!”

  • Jillian October 26, 2012 at 9:42 am

    My guy is obsessed with any and all food. I mean he will ridiculously through fits if I’m eating anything…and of course he doesn’t understand half of it is spicy. He also loves any and all animals. He makes a pretty amazing elephant noise!

  • Laura Tyler October 26, 2012 at 9:52 am

    Awesome post! Sorry about all the butt nuts tho, thats never good.
    My daughter, Sophie is 16 months, not really into anything weird, just the usual stuff, you know, chairs, socks,boobs,Elmo,boobs,ducks.

  • Leah October 26, 2012 at 9:55 am

    I think the key to the baby dropping is to start panicking that you’re so not ready for her to be born, and then boom, she’ll drop. Or could be that my little girl was just contrary and already going against everything mom wanted her to do at that point.

    Anyway, my 3-year-old is obsessed with chocolate. I can get him to do pretty much anything as long as I promise chocolate afterwards. Last night he ate a piece of charred garlic off of my plate because he thought it was a chocolate chip. My 6-month-old is obsessed with chewing on her toes, pulling on my jewelry and breastfeeding. She hates the bottle and so barely eats enough to get through the day at daycare and instead wakes up 3 or 4 times a night to breastfeed. I am so exhausted.

  • Jackie October 26, 2012 at 10:05 am

    This is so cute. Eli loves aligators and dinosaurs right now.

  • Ashley C October 26, 2012 at 10:08 am

    Good luck! My daughter dropped at 36 weeks, I hit 4.5 cms and walked around at that for 2 weeks. My little one needed some coaxing into the world with a cervical sweep, but she was born 24 hrs after that with only 2 hours of active labor (if I have a 3rd that child I will probably be one of those horror stories of mom having baby at home or in the car on the way to the hospital).

    My sons current loves are: cars, trucks, dinosaurs (morel like blue and purplesaurus), and anything aquatic.

  • Maureen October 26, 2012 at 10:19 am

    Sorry to hear about the low-hanging butt fruit. I just had baby #2 8 weeks ago – second time around was SO. MUCH. WORSE. Anyway, our littlest one is pretty into screaming in my face and male-pattern baldness (mostly because she appears to have it). Oh, and farting like a boss. Do those count as interests?

  • Andrea October 26, 2012 at 10:24 am

    I’m 26ish weeks preg with my second one and so so over it already. Good luck, I’m hoping for a VBAC too. I did evening primrose oil and acupuncture with my son and while I still ended up having a c, I think it did help my cervix ripen….. Anyway, weird stuff that my eighteen month old is into: brooms (not toy only regular), eyes, eggplant, juice (which means breastmilk…I don’t know), climbing on things that are high and then jumping off.

  • Jesse October 26, 2012 at 10:31 am

    My baby didn’t drop until my water was broken for the 3rd time- yes third, so I have no advice for you there. But as far as cervix ripening goes- lots of sex. And I’m sure that’s probably off the table right now so masturbate. TMI, I know, but I wanted that baby out of me so bad and it worked. I was fully dilated the first time I was checked.

  • delorus October 26, 2012 at 10:47 am

    I never understood why women were naked through the whole labour in all of my books. Maybe they were naked the whole pregnancy too. Even when I took a bath in labour I wore underwear and a sports bra.

  • Colleen October 26, 2012 at 11:03 am

    I am taking the bradley class, I can promise we don’t get naked in the actual class. I haven’t read the book so I haven’t seen those naked people yet. I also have nightmares of being naked during labor and the door of my room opening up and all my lady bits being exposed to everyone. Hoping to find some crotchless pants for birth.
    I do not have an out of body child yet, but the current one is obsessed with dancing on my bladder and all the times I am not near a bathroom or when I am trying to sleep. I have 4ish months left and think I will start wearing diapers now.

  • Nicole October 26, 2012 at 11:17 am

    My baby Jake like trains, John Deere anything, driving his older brother and sister crazy, and not showing any interest in potty training!

  • Ashley October 26, 2012 at 11:20 am

    I know it’s oversaid and doesn’t really help much, but hang in there you’re almost done!

    My son (2) is interested in all things cars, as well as rocks. I don’t know how strange this is on the weird scale but it’s what he likes.

  • Meg October 26, 2012 at 11:24 am

    Well considering my kid is still “in utero”, I’ll take a guess at his interests… I would say the #1 interest that could (and hopefully will) translate over to when he’s “out utero” is that he rocks out to rockabilly and death metal. So not kidding; every single time. If this kid isn’t a musician at some point in his life, my husband will never forgive him.

  • Sara from No Purple Walls October 26, 2012 at 11:36 am

    My 8 week-old son August is only interested in shitting like a ninja. You think everything is calm and safe, and all of a sudden… fuck. He was interested in peeing on things when we were changing his diaper, but then he peed in his own face and it was suddenly not fun anymore.

  • Amy October 26, 2012 at 12:07 pm

    I was naked during birth. It happened. I was in clothes then I was in the tub and then I was naked and didn’t get unnaked. Its ok.

  • Stephanie October 26, 2012 at 12:26 pm

    Noah obsessed with belts. So much so that he had a full blown meltdown when my husband put his on to go to work today. For the record, Noah is one, so this is probably not all that weird in terms of weird shit 1-year-olds like. But what really is? They like everything they aren’t supposed to have, right?

  • designstiles October 26, 2012 at 12:44 pm

    So I don’t actually have a kid but my sister does and we’re close so I guess her kid feels a little like he’s mine too. Unless I can win for my dogs, that would be awesome (their interests are balls, peanut butter and housewives) But I’ll try wining for my neph (short for nephew). He’s only 5 months old so I guess his only real “interests” are sleeping and sleeping. But the other day my sister brought him over and he played with a ziploc bag for like an hour, straight. He just sat in his bumpy bimbo bumbo, I forget, and played with it. I joked around with him and said he should add the gallon size version to his Christmas list. And soon after that he’d move up to garbage bags. He totally got offended and started crying. Sorry little man, it was a joke. I guess he got his dad’s sense of humor.

  • Kendra October 26, 2012 at 1:43 pm

    My 19 month old is obsessed with cars, trucks, busses, tractors, fire trucks, airplanes, trains… you get the idea, right? Oh, and Mickey Mouse. But if I happen to win the drawing I’d probably order something for my baby girl due in January to tie in with her nursery theme. I’m not as preggo as you but this second pregnancy has been kicking my butt and I can’t believe I still have so long to go! At least your end is in sight. Hang in there!

  • DailyBaxter October 26, 2012 at 1:45 pm

    My kid likes hot dogs, shoes, and anything that has a button to push.

  • Danielle October 26, 2012 at 1:48 pm

    My two year old loves trucks, fire engines, police cars, tractors and pretty much anything with wheels. I kinda wish he was a little weirder :)

  • KHT October 26, 2012 at 1:49 pm

    My baby girl is a year old and loves her some RuPaul’s Drag Race! My sister and I are obsessed. Baby girl has taken to wearing BIG necklaces around and likes to get her dance on during “lipsync for your life”. RuPaul…bringing families together.

    Also, naked during birth? Highly recommended. I know your VBAC will be awesome!

  • Steph October 26, 2012 at 1:52 pm

    Amelie is into digging in her own diaper and grabbing trash out of the recycling. Toddlers are gross!

  • Ali October 26, 2012 at 1:56 pm

    My son Riley loves the Green Bay Packers. and the One Direction song “What Makes You Beautiful” which makes me want to kick koala bears.

  • eve October 26, 2012 at 2:23 pm

    My 13 month old loves pulling clothes out of drawers/dryer (or sitting in my closet doing the same thing), pictures of HERSELF, shaking things to see if they make noise, and ripping up US Weeklys I haven’t read yet. Love the personalized prints. Yay VBAC!

  • Kim October 26, 2012 at 2:25 pm

    My son loves the pepper grinder. LOVES it. I bought him a cheap one from target and now he carries around our good wooden one and the cheap one. And tries to bring the pepper grinder with him everywhere. I don’t let it out of the kitchen/family room but he’s tried to bring it on car rides, walks outside, the potty, to bed….he’s 18 months old!

  • maria October 26, 2012 at 2:32 pm

    love these! baby isn’t born yet, but i’m sure he’ll be into weird stuff at some point!

  • Jennifer October 26, 2012 at 2:46 pm

    My son is really into cats, soap, his tummy, and our dog’s eyes. Hope you get to give birth soon and it all goes well!!

  • Tamar October 26, 2012 at 3:20 pm

    Oh please pick me!! I just got in trouble because my toddler said fuck in preschool (and my husband is one of the local Rabbis). He accidentally dropped a bunch of blocks during circle time and said “oh fuck”. At least he used it correctly.

    He loves lawn mowers, brooms, vacums, buses, dogs and bugs.

  • em October 26, 2012 at 3:32 pm

    my kid loves grabbing handfuls of catfood and throwing it on the ground. i love your blog.

  • Inna October 26, 2012 at 5:01 pm

    Well since my daughter is 2.5 months her interests are pretty much boobs and poop. That should make for an interesting print, don’t you think?

  • Julialifeisart October 26, 2012 at 6:21 pm

    Chances are your giant baby is as low as she’s gonna get because you are tiny & there’s nowhere to “drop.” That’s what happened with my son. People were telling me I was “still carrying so high” up until the day I went into labor.

    My son is into the moon, walking backwards, saying “boom,” watching squirrels & lizards, and eating everything all the time.

  • Christi M. October 26, 2012 at 6:41 pm

    My daughter is into saving trash, yep, she will grab anything out of the trash to save it. We had to limit her trash to a small tub in her room. It is actually quite sad since we think it has to do with her having over 6 close family members die in her short 5 years.

  • Ali October 26, 2012 at 7:49 pm

    My son (20months) is into licking everything in sight. And eating windowsills. He is getting a baby sister in 49 days… I’m hoping the licking phase ends before then. he also likes being chased by the swiffer.

  • Andrea P October 26, 2012 at 8:21 pm

    My two month old daughter is really into my boobs, baths & pooping. Wouldn’t that make a lovely custom art piece?? Hehe!

  • Michelle October 26, 2012 at 10:36 pm

    Wow, cool. I am 36 WEEKS!! Go in to “turn” her next week…..which I prefer to refer to as “dance party 2012!”

    Little Elsa Mae….not sure what her interests are yet but we’re rockin’ the yellow and pink! Diggin’ on the ducks, turtles and horses! Oh and sweet pea’s. :))

    Happy Labor Day Momma!! xxo

  • Jeri R. October 26, 2012 at 11:13 pm

    My 2 yr old is into tractors, spiderman and having to pee standing up!

  • Ali Hochberg October 26, 2012 at 11:22 pm

    My 18 month-old is interested in airplanes (obvi), trains (obvi), cleaning everything with a diaper wipe (including the playground equipment and the pavement), eating his food with a Mr. Potato Head arm/hand instead of a fork, pointing at the toad that lives in my flower pot after having uprooted my single attempt at planting something colorful, and constantly doing the “wheels on the bus” hand/arm movement. Also, he used to carry around a yellow handled spoon everywhere (as in: he used to take a bath with it, go to bed with it, etc.). I’d give me left arm (since it’s the damaged one anyway) to see these interests memorialized in a drawing of his name.

  • Jessica Knight October 27, 2012 at 12:41 am

    my daughter basically loves anything she isn’t supposed to play with… can you make a print of products you find under the sink, trash dug out of the trashcan, and nicely folded laundry?

  • Maria October 27, 2012 at 1:12 am

    My 14 month old is into toes, any toes he loves biting them. He will chase my feet or the hubbys feet around the house on all fours just to get a bite :)

  • Rae October 27, 2012 at 3:20 am

    Just had my first three days ago…we are currently breastfeeding and reading MODG simultaneously. That’s as weird as it gets at 3 days old, I guess.

  • Linden October 27, 2012 at 7:22 am

    WeLl our little drama mama is only 3 months old so her main interests are milk, me, her fingers, and trying to have the loudest cry ever (she’s winning on that one. I think she got her competitive streak from me). Oh and she loves chandeliers… The bigger and shinier the better… Future boyfriends are going to be in trouble if that’s her taste in jewelry too.

  • Rebekah October 27, 2012 at 7:34 am

    First of all, good luck in the coming days. You are going to be awesome.
    My son Kainen who is almost 2 all of the sudden has a fascination with my stomach.. Yes the stomach that is a bit rounder then I would like and that has stretch marks all over the place from having 2 beautiful boys. If I get dressed and he is in the room he will stand there and scream mommy belly, big belly…
    Oh and he is also obsessed with trash trucks.. He can spot one a mile away.. Fun times.

  • Aly October 27, 2012 at 11:17 am

    My 14 month old son has an obsession with tomatoes. He wants to have a grape tomato in each hand at all times! If I try to take them away, it gets messy…haha. He squeezes them until they burst.

  • Amber October 27, 2012 at 11:50 am

    I hope that baby makes her grand entrance soon! Being that pregnant sucks :/

  • Jessie October 27, 2012 at 1:31 pm

    My 17 month old daughter’s interests include: trying to suck soap out of the soap dispenser, wearing my underwear around her neck like an infinity scarf, and cheese.

  • Kate October 27, 2012 at 2:39 pm

    I didn’t even know people dropped at 38 weeks. My son literally dropped minutes before active labor. Huh. Anywho, my son Oliver is obsessed with car cars. No, not car, always car, cars. I hve bribed this kid to say it once but so far two are better than one.

  • Katia October 27, 2012 at 5:05 pm

    I gave birth 11 weeks ago on week 38. I wish you the same. 11 week old’s interests to which I’ve dedicated my last blog post are non-illustratable. 3 year old, however, is fascinated with spiders and I can’t tell if it’s good fascinated or bad fascinated. A phrase one would not expect to hear on a daily basis is ‘mommy, could you chuck that web?’ Not exactly sure what that would entail, but I don’t, just in case.

  • Becky October 27, 2012 at 7:59 pm

    My 19 month old loves balls. Yes, balls. It was his first word – “ball” – and ever since then, everything is a ball. The light fixture on the ceiling? Ball. The wheels on the car? Ball. The mole on my chest? Ball. He’s a freak.

  • Ashlee October 27, 2012 at 10:03 pm

    My husband says that the reason for the all naked all the time in Bradley is because that is the only way they can get guys interested in the book. We did Bradley, too, and in our book the men are always just in their underwear with their partner, and my husband’s first reaction to the book was “Why are all the guys naked? I’m not going to be naked when you are in labor!”

  • Tricia October 27, 2012 at 10:05 pm

    Holy cats you have a lot of followers! My whole family is a pirate family. We’re not actually really pirates in the sense of stealing and murdering, but we’ve got a pirate room and everything.

  • Jenny Jane S October 28, 2012 at 6:10 am

    Interests of my two month old:

    Lights. Especially the ceiling light in our room that has the added bonus of being round with a piece of metal in the center resembling a nipple.

    Ceiling fans, especially with lights.

    Boobs. Mostly mine, though he’ll try getting stuff out of others, too.

    Oh, and hopefully you don’t need it it, but Pitocin is not always terrible. I really wanted a natural birth but when I was 2 weeks late (and sure about the date of conception) I agreed to be induced. They used a very minimal dose of pitocin and turned it off completely a few hours in, and my son was born 7.5 hours later without any meds. And I used Bradley’s too! Good luck :-)

  • Jade October 28, 2012 at 2:55 pm

    My son is totally into football, music, dancing, cats, balloons and being outdoors. Which is creepy, because those are a few of my favorite things.

  • Melissa V. October 28, 2012 at 3:31 pm

    Sophia is only 1, so her interests are small. One of her favorites: a box of tissues. Girl loves a box of tissues.

  • Shannon October 28, 2012 at 4:09 pm

    Your blog is hilarious, so hilarious that I read it and I don’t even have kids, and everytime you mention your hemorrhoids and other terrible s&$! It makes me frightened. So I have chosen not to have children because of you, ha. I do have a bulldog who is my fur child who strangely loves it when I stick a q-tip near his asshole … Why do I do this you say?? Because he cannot clean his own ass cause he is a fat.
    I think he would love a picture for his bedroom…

  • Natalie October 28, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    My 10 month old daughter’s favorite food is… carpet. She picks at the carpet all day long and when I catch her and tell her, “No carpet!” she yells back at me. I’m afraid she’s going to have a nasty carpet ball in her stomach for her entire life.

  • Kiran@masalachica October 29, 2012 at 9:37 am

    It sounds like we are the same body type. And whenever anybody asked me how my pregnancy was going I just wanted to tell them about my butt. Because it was the center of all misery for me!

    Get through this – you’ll do great.

  • Karena October 29, 2012 at 12:07 pm

    I totally empathize (well not for like 7 years, but still) with you and your last few weeks of pregnancy pain. I hope YoSHE drops soon. I didn’t know they needed to drop to have a soft cervix. My son never dropped and the nurse bitch made me push anyways.

    Maybe that’s why my son likes being beaten with a whale. A stuffed one, but yes, yes he does. He asks daily if I’ll beat him with a whale. No idea. But I DO want one of the name prints. SUPER cute!!

  • abby glig October 29, 2012 at 2:13 pm

    My kids are into eating Vegemite. When we are on holiday, they ask, “Where’s the Vegemite?” at breakfast. I tell them its in our kitchen and/or in Australia, both of which are very far away at that moment.

  • Katie @ mommy brain blog October 29, 2012 at 2:15 pm

    Tommy, my 16-mo old, is currently interested in spiders, belly buttons, being naked, and taking framed photographs off the shelf so that he can stand on them while dancing. It’s all very exciting.

    Looking forward to the big boy room post!

  • Dawn October 29, 2012 at 3:05 pm

    Oh pick me! Pick me! (lame, but I had to say it)

    My daughter’s name is Julianna and she likes iphones, ipads, remote controls…oh. Um…I mean…bananas, doggies, kitty cats, mom’s jewelry, elephants, ducks and being naked.

  • NSC October 29, 2012 at 3:58 pm

    My kid loves to chew the cardboard binding off her books. Granted, she is 11 months and doesn’t know that its bad for her. She also likes to eat toilet paper (most of that was on the roll and hopefully not already in the toilet…God I hope not in the toilet) and climb her child gates.

  • Elizabeth October 29, 2012 at 4:18 pm

    First things first..duh your having a baby Khloe…nothing else would be considered sane!

    Most important! Pick me:) Why?! My sons name is Michael, it only seemed like fate when you posted the picture and it was the Michael name. Of course he loves all things boy. He’s 3. He does have a strange deal with his shoes. Doesn’t want to take them off. I mean so much so that if I take them off it could be considered a punishment like time out…hmmm…foot fetish in the making??

  • Melissa N. October 29, 2012 at 5:25 pm

    Braxton is obsessed with panties/sports bras. Seriously, he snags them and wears them around his head like a necklace or bandana. Crazy. Other than that, he’s totally into cute monsters, books, necklaces/braclets, cars – ya know, typical boy crap. 😉

  • Tanica October 30, 2012 at 12:48 am

    My one-year-old son loves playing with my makeup and wearing my scarves around. Would love to have one of these!

  • G-unit October 30, 2012 at 12:56 pm

    My niece loves farting, but I don’t think that would be the best thing to put in a frame in her room. So, her other favorite things are mac & cheese, Play-doh, Barbie and the color purple.

  • Gina October 30, 2012 at 4:48 pm

    How do I find you on Facebook???

  • cassidy October 30, 2012 at 5:53 pm

  • Andra October 30, 2012 at 9:54 pm

    Modge. I sumbled across your blog this morning and have been reading on and off all day. Love it.

    Anyway, my 2 year old is obsessed with flags. Flags of any sort, but mainly the American flag. Much to the chagrin of my husband, who is a Brit. I got him a small one today at the store and he paraded it around all day.

    My son is obsessed with our Rabbi, with eating dates and making sure everyone and thing around him eats dates (including his trains and stuffed animals), and wearing a pink Pig Hat (like Piggie, in the Elephant and Piggie books).

  • Jeanne' November 4, 2012 at 9:56 pm

    I stumbled upon your blog today and have been reading it for hours. You have me laughing. The worst part of being pregnant (outside of the normal things like randomly peeing on yourself, or swollen everything) is the last month. I feel for you! I am sending you good thoughts, hope the little one comes soon!
