Forget a melon, I have the entire salad covered!

Each Friday, I receive a cute little email from Babycenter informing me that I have in my tummy anything from carrots, to avocados to this week's, spaghetti squash. Yes, the miracle I'm growing is beginning it's little life being compared to vegetables.

The spaghetti squash threw me for a few minutes as I tried to recall the size of this type of squash...I'd only seen it a few times at Whole Food's grocery section!

Well, I can't complain because to be fair, I myself have been calling it "our little chickpea" and plan on calling it a falafal when it's all done in March next year =)

Another little Ozturk is joining our team of Anne, Baba and Monster. I'm hoping I have someone who doesn't find it funny to disappear in a small living room within 5 seconds while only scooting backwards!

Our third eye, or is it love?

I love my couch and it's well known so that Wizard doesn't really mind when at the end of a long day, I boss him around to fetch me things...often as random as my glasses or hand cream or Monster's library book.
Tonight, I'd just found a very comfortable spot and realized I'd left my iPad plugged in in the kitchen. Wizard was just in the kitchen but didn't reply when I called his name. I thought he didn't hear me so I didn't tell him anything, thinking I'll just send him back when he comes out. I hear him behind me and turn my head to ask him to get me my iPad and what do I see in his hands near me?

Oh yes. My iPad.

He snickered that he knows what I want before I want it.

And I simply fell a little more (as if that's possible) in love with him.

Salma said it: Standars are like water

My sister occasionally produces these marvelous brain farts that can convey pretty deep messages if you can stop laughing for a few minutes. These need to be immortalized somewhere before she writes her own book and gets picked by the Oprah Book Club.

Her friends will really appreciate this =)

Today I confronted her that her standards are different for whenever it suits her and how come she can't make up her mind, she came up with this:

"It's like water, it gets stagnant if you don't change it often. Standards need to be changed so they don't get stagnant."
