She’s here! (Plus all the parenting wisdom I’ve gained so far)

OK, she’s been here for a few weeks now, but it turns out learning how to mom is kind of hard and takes a lot of time that most definitely interferes with your ability to sleep and blog.

But yes, I fulfilled my new year’s resolution at 9:40 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 7, when I gave birth to Lillian Sage Franz, aka Lily, aka Lily Pad, aka No. 1 Munchkin, aka all the other silly nicknames we’re sure to come up with for her.


Hi, I’m Lily!

Turns out all the hard work and feeling like a zombie are worth it when you get to love and schmoodle a sweet little bug like this.

I’d like to claim I am a total parenting expert and am here to impart valuable advice, but I cannot. I will leave you with this little nugget of wisdom I’ve learned since Lily’s arrival: Projectile poop is not a myth. I repeat: Projectile poop is NOT A MYTH.

It is so, so real, and let me tell you: That shit can move. Once it strikes the first time — which will inevitably be during the middle of a 4 a.m. diaper change when you haven’t slept for eight days — you will live in constant fear of when it will happen again.

And it will happen again. If you’re lucky, you will have remembered to put a clean diaper underneath at the beginning, and it will block the poo’s main trajectory. If you’re not lucky, you will have forgotten to do this, and, well, let’s just say that projectile poop doesn’t discriminate when it comes to its targets.

That’s all the wisdom I have to impart for now. Once I have this whole parenting thing down in the next week or two, I’ll surely have more.

It’s somebunny’s birfday …

Four years ago today, this little banana-loving monkey bunny came bouncing into the world and into our hearts, and we’ve loved her ever since. Happy birthday, Pancake! Extra bananas and bunny binkies for you today!

Time for … BUNNIES!

In honor of spring, Easter and me no longer having to plan an egg hunt after this weekend, I’d like to pay homage to my second favorite rodent: BUNNIES!!

I’ve been a fan of bunnies since I was a kid, even after my parents killed my childhood dream of owning one when they gave me a stuffed bunny instead of the real one I’d asked for. They thought it was funny, but I was devastated. (That’s right, M and D — I haven’t forgotten.)

Anyway, without further ado, I present you: BUNNIES!

First up: Baby bunnies!


Just a lil guy!


I’m not even sure if he’s a bunny, but I like him!

Next: Fat bunnies!




Fatterest!! (though most likely Photoshopped)

Finally, some miscellaneous bunnies:

A sad bunny? OH NO!

Why you make bunny cry?!? WHY?!?

I know what make bunny feel better! Give bunny pancake!

That bunny has a pancake on its head! A gosh-darn pancake!

All right, that’s enough nonsense for now. I hope you enjoyed this glimpse into my inane fascination with cute animals! Happy spring!
