Odd Bits

I very nearly typed that as Odd Bins, but this is not a post about alcohol. (Boo hoo, I know)  I really don't know what this post is about.  There are random odd bits floating in my brain, and I thought I would write them down. Perhaps alcohol should be involved...

Speaking of alcohol, I made hot chocolate from scratch last night.  Cocoa, sugar, cocoa chili, milk, salt & water. The magic ingredient, however, was butterscotch schnapps.  I didn't have enough milk for the recipe so I added the schnapps.  Let me say right now, DAMN!  That was some tasty hot chocolate. In the future I can see adding baileys or peppermint schnapps. Those are fine flavours to meld with dark cocoa.

Did ya'll know I'll be performing at the Arizona Renaissance Festival? NO?  Well then, let me say right now that I, NeidFyre, will be performing at the Arizona Renaissance Festival for the full run of the 2011 season.  I'm so excited to be heading back to Apache Junction.  I love my AZRF family, and can't wait to see them all.  This also means that I'm going to be driving myself, DB and Lyric, our kitten, cross-country.  (I'll be blogging more about that shortly.)

The other day  was walking around with DB in her Ergo.  I received dirty looks and was asked by 4 people if there was something wrong with my daughter.  They wanted to know why she wasn't in a stroller or a shopping cart or walking around next to me.  DB is nearly 22 months old and will be 2yrs at the end of March.  WTF people.  She was having a great time.  What is with people in the US that babywearing is considered "wrong".  I have friends who wore their babes until they were 3.   It's also not just the US.  Here's a bit on Carrie Moss from 10/21/10.  The title of the article just blew me away, and not in a good way.

Perhaps my brain wasn't as full as I though, because I can't think of anymore to say.  I'll just finish with this tidbit, and yes it's about DB.  Last week she put her fingers on my eyelids and lifted them up. As my eyes rolled back she said, "Zombie Eyes!". This morning she did it again. :grin:  She was considerate about it too.  She asked me to take off my glasses, THEN she lifted my eyelids up. "ZOMBIE EYES!" Maybe that should be the title of my next CD....

Over & Out!


  1. DB is definitely NOT too old to be in an Ergo. Ergos are made to carry older kids (way past her weight range; I think easily over 40lbs) quite comfortably. Keep up the "mad" mama skillz. ;P You are a wonderful mama and keep wearing the girl. Worn kids are happy and healthy. Huggles.

  2. I had a woman try to INSIST she give me a ride home one day because she determined that the baby was way too cold & seemed uncomfortable in the Faux-Ergo. She didn't have a car seat but who cares? Baby would be much safer and comfortable in the car, with or without a car seat. Crazies! But it's so rare here to encounter non-babywearing sentiment,really.Guess that's why it stands out so much when I hear it.

    DB is darling :)
