Too much TV, perhaps?

So this probably makes me a bad mom but I like to watch TV while Zadie is at the boob. Unfortunately, her timing isn't so great so we've been catching a lot of Y&R.

OK. I'm lying. Her timing is great. She's almost always hungry between 12:30 and 1:30 and blesses me with at least half of the best soap opera on the planet. My mom raised me with Y&R and I've decided to continue the tradition.

But what the hell is up with the Victor/Sabrina storyline? OMG. It's like every time they do a scene together it's the same one again and again and again. Mon amour mon amour mon amour. I'm sick of it. Stop the sap.

Take spoon (above) and gag me with it.

And since we're on the subject of TV, is anyone else bored with Meerkat Manor this season? Don't get me wrong. I love Stockard Channing but I feel the show has lost some spark. I mean look back to last season. When Flower died I was in tears. My husband came home from something and I was on the couch sobbing uncontrollably. He thought I was losing the baby. (Um, maybe pregnancy hormones had something to do with it...). Seriously, it was just the saddest thing I'd ever seen -- how she died protecting her family and then they showed her little body there with her cheeks all swollen from the poison. I'm tearing up now just thinking of it.

Maybe I'm distracted this season. 9:00 is pretty close to bedtime these days.

Oh yeah, if you want to buy that spoon, click here. Don't buy one for my baby though, someone fabulous already bought Baby Lemon a complete set of silverware for when she starts eating "real" food.
