Motorola Xoom + Bionic-September Edition

I had this review all ready to go. Then the mailman rang my doorbell and delivered the second device I’ll be reviewing over the next several months in cooperation with Verizon. Y’all. I finally have a smartphone that I don’t have to give back after a week. And it is SMART. I thought the HTC Thunderbolt could see me soul, turns out the Thunderbolt was just a precursor to the Motorola Droid Bionic.

Look! I’ve already documented how glamorous my life is:

{babbled} My Baby Had to Have Surgery for a Blocked Tear Duct

It started after about two weeks. Her right eye was constantly weepy, sometimes crusty. Well-meaning old ladies in the grocery store would tilt their heads and cluck, “Oh, she has a cold in her eye?”. The doctor confirmed it was a blocked tear duct and that it would most likely clear up on its own…

{babbled} The Baby. SHE ROLLS OVER.

Well, one way at least. Once she gets onto her belly she has no idea what to do aside from look around and squeak. The squeaks gradually turn into squawks which eventually turn into screams. I’ll roll her back over, saving her from her misery and she repays me by rolling back over. I’m trying…

{babbled} Dolphin Organics Giveaway!

Last week I mentioned how much I love Dolphin Organics for cleaning and maintaining my very chubby baby. All natural ingredients, easy-to-read, no-nonsense labels and unscented for even the most delicate snowflake skin. Most of us have found out the hard way that even when a label says “natural” or “organic” it doesn’t mean that…

dirty musical love affairs.

I have never been super obsessed over a particular music group or band.

However I have a very passionate spot for insanely talented, truly smart and oh so quirky artists. Lady Gaga? Love you. Hard. I may not let my kid watch your videos or listen to your music (hell, I barely do), but we have long discussions about how kind and genuine you are in interviews and at one time you felt awkward, out of place and freakish.  Look at you now.

Marshall Mathers, Eminem. You tortured, talented (and recovering) soul. I have a very soft spot for you. I know all the awful things that are said about you. I’m well aware of the awful things you sing about. But YOU. You. I’m convinced I could have been the girl to soften you, the one to change you. The one that every other girl would hate forever because I GOT YOU. Don’t worry, I’ve polled almost every girl I know, we all have the same soft spot for you. Most of them just won’t admit it.

Bruno Mars. I wanted to hate you. I DID HATE YOU. That baby face…goofy smile. “I’d catch a grenade for CHA?” “Put my hand on a blade for CHA?” For you. FOR YOU. Diction Mars. DICTION. But somewhere after all the CHA you won me over. I have no idea how it happened. And now you have a duet with my secret dirty? Fine. You win. I give up.

Jared Leto? You’re so strange, but…yum.

And last. Richard Marx. You are…wonderful. Timeless. You’ve aged well. You sing a love song like Ryan Gosling does a love scene. Right Here Waiting? I used to make out with Tom Cruise my pillow to that song. Whenever you come on the radio? I have a moment. There’s something about you. I love you. That is all.

Any dirty musical love affairs you’d like to admit to?

{babbled} I am Your Boobs’ Biggest Fan

I battled with nonexistent milk supply for eight weeks. I did everything and anything I could to establish a milk supply but it never happened for me. I didn’t just have a low milk supply … I had NO milk supply. What worked for other women never worked for me. I chatted back and forth…

{babbled} Woombie, for the Naughty Swaddlers.

“Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Matrix Woombie is. You have to see it for yourself.” My first reaction to the Woombie: “It’s like putting your baby in a Matrix pod! JUST PLUG THE CORD INTO THE BACK OF HER NECK AND WATCH OUT FOR AGENT SMITH!” Boy howdy, did I have to eat…
