What the %@*#?! Wednesday, Beauty's Debut

I thought I had a lot more time before Beauty would start to give the little Beast a run for his money in the What the %@*#?! moment race. I was wrong. She is into Ev. Ry. Thing. But nothing makes me say What the %@*#?! more than this particular mess.

The little Beast was recently potty trained and sometimes forgets to put the toilet lid down.

He also sometimes forgets to flush.

Ewwwww.... Say it with me: What the %@*#?!

I'm Baaaaaack! And I Brought A Friend!

I really enjoyed my summer blogcation, but I really missed you, my pretend Internet friends. That's just part of the reason I'm so happy to come back in time to welcome a special bloggy-friend guest! The fabulous women of Moxie Media, a new network of women bloggers, sent their mascot on a virtual tour of the United States recently, and I'm representing Washington State (insert shoutout to the 206 area code here).

I took Moxie Mona on a tour of the most spectacular places in Western Washington this week, and I'd like to share Mona's vacation album with you. When you're done enjoying it, head over to visit any of these ladies from Moxie Media for links to Mona's visits to other states!

Kat at Mama's Losin' It
Jill at Scary Mommy

First, Mona took in the gorgeous view of Mt. Rainier that I enjoy from my hometown everyday.

Then, she visited Seattle's Alki Beach at sunset.

From Alki Beach, she oohed and aahed over the beautiful Seattle skyline.

And the world famous Space Needle.

I had many other plans for Moxie Mona, but alas, it wasn't to be. While minding her own business in my living room one day, she was attacked and defeated by the Tired Teething Toddler Terror, kryptonite to supermoms everywhere.

See, first Beauty dragged Mona off to her lair:

Then, she contemplated what kind of torture to inflict upon poor Mona:

And finally, she drowned Mona in drool while biting her all over. What a terrible way to go....

Well, it was good while it lasted Mona. I hope you fare better in other states. As for the rest of you, don't forget to check out the brand new blog, Mayhem & Moxie, written by the team formerly known as 3 Bay B Chicks!
