Another Totally Random Tuesday.

Hello, everyone. And welcome to Random Tuesday in this little corner of the blogosphere.


Did you know swine flu is expected to kill 90,000 people this year? Yeah. I read that shortly after everyone in my house started to come down with a slightly flu-like illness. Internet, do I need to tell you how badly I freaked out at the thought of my not-quite-five-month-old coming down with the swine flu?

I don’t think I do. But she doesn’t. We don’t. Have the pig, that is. It’s just a garden variety cold. Or so her pediatrician assured me.

Here’s another fun fact. SIDS kills 9 babies in the U.S. every day. I’ve tried very hard not to think about that particular statistic. But then, last week, someone on my BabyCenter board lost her little one to it. Suddenly,it became very real…

Whooo. This is a downer, isn’t it? Here, watch a whistling puppy. It’ll cheer you up:

There. Feel better? I do.

So I won’t tell you all the useless statistics I know about other things that can kill you (health care advertising? Teaches you a lot of disturbing trivia). Instead, I’ll tell you about the cute polka dot pants I bought Tori today. There’s a brown fuzzy teddy bear on the butt (to hide other brown stains?).

Baby clothes? Are ridiculously cute. It’s a good thing they’re cheap, because I could easily spend a small fortune. Oh, and speaking of absolutely freaking adorable, check out this baby costume site. Tori needs one of everything.

Especially these:

Okay, I’m done being random. Don’t forget to stop by Keely’s place at the Un-Mom for more randomness!

About Me

So, who is this Amber Page, anyway?

That’s a darn good question, folks. And one I have a different answer to every day. The real answer is, I’m not quite sure. But I’m figuring it out, and if you read along on this blog, you’ll probably know the answer before I do.

Here’s what I do know. I’m a copywriter—an advertising writer—by trade, and a plain old writer writer by, I don’t know, compulsion? It’s just part of who I am. I’m from Motown, but I saw the Badness coming several years ago and got the heck out while I still could. These days, I live in Southern Indiana, and I like it here way more than I ever imagined I could.

I’m married, as you’ve probably figured out. And I just had my first baby. Plus,  I’m mom to a whole menagerie of pets who never fail to keep life interesting.

Why should I spend some of my precious time reading this blog?

Well, unless you’re related to me, I guess you don’t have to. But I hope you will. I make no promises, but I’ll do my darnedest to be entertaining—and way less whiny than I am in real life. I can assure you that you’ll get a totally unglossified (I think I just made up a new word!) account of the realities of new motherhood and the trials and tribulations that go along with it. And hopefully a chuckle or two. Isn’t that reason enough?
