I'm on a roll!

I have to say I am proud of my little Sass! She is such a champ. She handled the long travel to and from Michigan with just her momma.........Honestly she handled it better than me! But then again, if all I had to do was sleep, eat, poop, play and be carried everywhere while people fall all over themselves looking at me, I would have been pretty hunky dory myself! Have you ever been to the Detroit airport? To get to the other concourse you go through this trippy, planetarium like, better hope you arent on acid, psychedelic light tunnel...with eerie music I should add.....Sass just stared at it with a horrid look on her I found myself shaking my head the whole way through. I mean, it is a MILE through this thing, might as well make it scary for children, you know, to spice things up a bit.

But she did well....oh did I mention she was teething?? Yeah so...oddly enough she survives the plane rides, but once on hard, unmoving, thankful to be alive (I dont like to fly) ground, she FREAKED out, I mean......SCREAMING! I blame it on teething.....she has been the fussiest ever yet she doesnt have a ear infection. She is still happy Sass for the most part, but a lot more needy. If I am not RIGHT there, she goes nutso. OH and she is experiencing stranger and separation anxiety too....ALL at the same time!

So I call sass Poops, I have no idea I call Hubby that.........I am so used to saying it.............he just looks at me....

OH I freaked out yesterday, I am EXHAUSTED, Sass finally goes down for her nap and I am in my room making a grocery list and I in stereo sound...then I realized STUPID CAT is in Sass's room!! So I ran over to the door to let fatty out before it was too was too late. I hear...WAAAAAAHHH....WWAAAAAHHHHH.....GREAT!

Sass had cat nip the other day.................Not on purpose, I dont just give my 6 month old cat nip...............only on special occasions and holiday's................kidding...anywho...
We were babysitting a 4 year old girl, Sass is in her jumperoo, I look away, look back, Sass, eating a cat toy LOADED with cat nip....all seems fine....until Midnight!

Apparently cat nip does a lot for babies as it does for cats....she was hilarious!! She pulled up on me, started jumping on me, huffing (breathing in and out real fast with her gums showing, so funny!), growling, hissing....I swear she was 5 seconds away from mooing and oinking too! If only she knew how. She was just going nuts. We were tired, but oh so entertained! She wore herself out in about 30 minutes and slept till 7 that morning.....Oh crazy cat nip!!

Welp, hubby called, I need to go meet him at the grocery store, I love that he helps! Until later taters!

I've been to that airport! We called it the star trek tunnel lol. I can't imagine a baby's reaction to that though... it almost made me sick to walk through it.

Cat nip... Sounds like a cute story! You have a little kitten on your hands...

I know this is after the fact and not likely to ever happen agian... but just so you know, her reaction was not typical. Cat nip makes cats hyper... it puts people to sleep. I think there's something else it's good for too, but I forget. Anyway, it's used to make teas for that purpose, but discouraged in pregnant and nursing mothers because it could hurt the baby. (as in too deep of sleep, not anything else) I wouldn't worry about it now because she's obviously ok, and didn't react normally to it anyway. That reminds me I need to go check the house for it too, our cats leave those toys everywhere!
