One of my medically-inclined friends came to visit this past weekend, and while we discussed my darling Annie’s chubs, she noted a very interesting possibility that I had never considered: did Annie maybe have kittens before?

The thought of Annie with kittens blew me away! I adopted her as an adult cat, and she was already spayed – so I never entertained the idea. But my friend said the way her tummy looked indicated she may have been pregnant at one point, and since I know nothing about her pre-adoption days, it is certainly possible! She may have been spayed later, or by the shelter.

Now, I just look at my little cublet with this new found awe. Thinking of her as a mama cat just melts my little heart!

I was fiscally irresponsible the past 6 weeks and bought two Lilly dresses that I fell in love with. To be fair, one was 40% off and the other was 25% off… that helps, right?

Fuzzy photo quality aside, aren’t they cute?? I feel so pretty in them! 🙂

Apparently “Vagina” is a Dirty Word…

I was watching “Mean Girls” on MTV last night and was all prepared to giggle when the chubby girl in the gym scene at the end says, “I can’t help it that I have a heavy flow and a wide-set vagina.”

Except, MTV decided to bleep out the part about the wide-set vagina.

Okay, I thought. Weird, but whatever! In the next minute of the same scene, however, MTV left “bitch”, “slut”, and “whore” decidedly UNbleeped. I was flabbergasted! Since when is “vagina” a dirtier word than “slut”?

I don’t want to get all feminazi over here, but it does go to show how our culture regards women and how it defines misogyny. Am I crazy to prefer my kid coming to me asking about vaginas than bitches and ho’s? Maybe it’s just me.
