Kids, Kittens, and a Bit of Advice

We have had some really wonderful weather lately. Not too hot, but warm enough. We have gone to the park several times this past week and had a great time. Summer loves to run around with the other kids. She's in that stage where they aren't quite starting conversations, but plays along-side others just fine. Camryn is a bit too little to keep up, but she has fun going up and down the steps, running in circles around the playground, and occasionally going down the slide.


We have also had a few dreary, rainy days. We had to stay inside, but there was no shortage of fun. Take for instance, this game, referred to as "Let's tackle Mommy while we're n@ked!"

**Wondering why I censored that word and have been "watermarking" some pics recently? A few months ago, I happened to be looking at my Feedjit, and watched as someone arrived on my blog by searching "n@ked toddler pics". I was horrified and sickened. I proceeded to delete the picture on the entry they had arrived on, and censored that post. I have heard horror stories about ordinary pictures being stolen off of blogs and personal sites, and used for disgusting purposes. That experience was my wake-up call, let this be yours. **


Watching how your cats react to catnip is pretty entertaining.



Kitten update: One down, two to go. One of the boys went to live with Audrey's friend, who was the one that originally found them. We still have the other boy and girl. They are growing so fast!



And yes... I changed my blog again!

Wow! There are so really crazy people in the world, huh? Thank you for the warning.

That is scary about the pics. When I posted a pic of Bryn w/ a bare bottom on my blog I made a point not to put the word "n@ked" on my blog. I think I said "nudie"?? I dunno. But I figured if ppl searched for the other word then it might not come up. People are so freakin' sick in this world anymore. Cute pics btw. :)

Oh my gosh! How scary!

I'm digging the background...totally something I'd choose for myself. :)

Okay, I'm feeling a bit sick about the 'naked toddler pictures' myself.

I'm usually pretty careful about the pictures I choose to post, but from here on out, I'm going to be super diligent.

There are some SICK ASS people in the world, Steph. It's pretty scary. I wish I could be private and still have all my followers get alerts, but blogger doesn't work that way, unfortunately.

I LOVE that photo of the dog and kittens sleeping together. How cute is that? We were going to get a kitten...I'd already named it. But then I discovered we'd have to pay a $200 non-refundable fee to the apartment managers, as well as tacking on an extra $25/month on our rent.

I couldn't believe it.

We're barely keeping our heads above water right now..no way we could afford that kind of expense just to get the kitten in the apartment in the first place. Not to mention vet bills, food, litter, etc.

So I'm feeling pretty bummed about the whole thing.

I even bought a catnip plant so the kitty could have a special treat every now and again. ::sigh::

Okay, I'm done rambling. LOL

That's scary about the people looking for pictures!!! I'll have to check that feed thing out...I've never done that before.

What is it with cats and catnip...I just don't get it! So funny!!!!!

Love the new blog look....I pulled up your page and laughed since you just changed it last week :)

Susie said...

Thanks for the warning. I usually try watching what I post, But now I will be even more careful.

I love the pics! Omg, how horrifying! That makes me wanna censor my pix, or make it so they can't be copied. Some people are truly sick =(

thecavvys said...

Love the pictures as always. And thats just horrifying about the n@ked pictures.

Kaileigh said...

Wonderful pictures... and about the advice you gave... it's so disturbing, isn't it? Sometimes I can't even think about all the terrible people in the world, or I truly get sick from it :(

Kaileigh said...

Oh and btw I love LOVE your layout on here, looks wonderful!

I think the image with the kittens are just too angelic! Sleeping with that big dog is just too great a photo moment!

Julie said...

Okay the naked story is scary! I try to be careful of what pics I put on the blog, but I never thought about people making them dirty. Wow. That makes me want to make my blog private...

D said...

That is sick! There's just so many weirdos out there and it's like they aren't even ashamed of it. Anyway, the girls are adorable!!
