First Times

Yesterday I had my first date with some of the lovely ladies I have met online c/o Girls Gone Child. BMC was kinda the reason I started the ol Momma blog (Fuck Mom/Mommy, I'm starting a new "club" where everyone is invited! Dads, Grandparents, Circusfolk, Tibetan Monks...) and MIM has been a pal dot com pretty much since i started blogging. I also got to meet awesome fellow-blogging mamma and new friend, Domestic Chicky and her two handsome little boys. It was a much needed, way-less-awkward-than-I-expected jamboree of fabulousness and I'm still high from our rockin' good time. It's not every day a GGC gets to hang out with a crew of sexy-as-shit, sharp, intelligent and witty women, especially of the Mommy-persuasion. In fact, yesterday was pretty much a first. Lucky for me I have a second meeting planned for soon, soon, soon with another fabulous talent, mother and friend dot com. Sorry to boast but I'm feeling lucky, people.

I was a teeny bit worried that Archer's shyness would cause a bit of drama but alas, his "playing hard to get" was magnetic...Which brings us to another exciting milestone: Yesterday Archer had his first kiss. It was maybe the cutest thing I have ever seen and we have photos to prove it. Foo is one forward baby-ista and on the way home from our meeting, Archer whispered, "I shall never wash this cheek again" and the truth is, so far he has not.


Thank you for a wonderful day, ladies and thank you, Foo for making the first move. Archer may be shy but he sure appreciates a woman who knows what she wants. Get some!

Sorry, BMC for stealing all the pics from your post. I was an idiot and forgot to take photos. Duh!

The kissing picture is toooo adorable!

Nominations are now being taken, if you care to nominate somebody.

Looked like such a nice time- you lucky blogging mom, YOU!

p.s. That furniture int he photo is wicked!

MrsFortune | 3:35 PM

I read about this on BMC. The cuteness of the kiss is hitherto unmatched by anything in the known universe. That is, until my son is born, of course. :-)

That pic is so so so cute. Sounds like a great time!

Like I told BMC...if the Peanut finds out that Archer's hanging with another chicka, she's going to be a little upset.

But seriously, GGC, I'm glad you and the women were able to get together. I'm jealous. Some of the coolest mammas in the blogosphere all together in one place. Sounds better than BlogHer!

I'm sooo jealous. Damnit.

the weirdgirl | 5:09 PM

How fun! (I'm jealous, too.)

Domestic Chicky | 5:14 PM

You are an amazing lady, and I soo agree about the lack-of-awkwardness. There was some great chick-clicking going on. The lady in the restaurant asked how long we'd been friends! BMC has serious matchmaking skills - Can't wait to see Archer & his mama again! (MIM too!)

I'm next! Yippeeeeeeee!

Is it ok to say I'm jealous? Archer got smooches from BeautyFoorella and DJ got what? Nada, Zilch, El Zero.

..I have always admired GorJussFoorina from a distance. I need to introduce my son and get in on the action. I love it! LOL

reluctant housewife | 9:02 PM

I wish I was in California!

You ladies are all too fabulous.

grayelephant | 4:57 AM

hey archer's getting some action already??? my little son is now swinging at the computer, jealous of the kissing going on in that absolutely sweet picture!

Her Bad Mother | 5:58 AM

From the outrageously hip and adorable look of him, he's gonna be gettin' a lot of that action, so I'm betting that the shy might not last too long (unless, of course, he really figures out the magnetism of the hot hip shy guy, and works that mojo).

(Here's to the quality of his first lady friend, too - hubba hubba cuteness!)

And? Also jealous!

Her Bad Mother | 6:00 AM

I have to just impose myself again here to note that the word verification word for my last comment was TWOT.

Dude. Clean it up.

GIRL'S GONE CHILD | 10:35 AM

hee hee. nice one.

Mrs. Chicky | 11:17 AM

I'm trying to keep the green-eyed monster at bay, but the jealousy is just oozing out of me.
Sounds like you all had a great time!

J's Mommy | 11:53 AM

awwww sounds like loads of fun! this was the first time all of you have met?

Grandpa East | 11:56 AM

Kissing must be in the air...Yesterday, an older lady stopped me in the market to tell me she often forgets things.I did not know her nor she me, but after a few words about how charming and youthful I looked, she asked if she could give me a "smooch" (her exact word).I complied... (take whatever you can). So... Archer's genes are set up for stranger kissing. There will be more since it very obviously runs in the family!

How many cool people can one person have in her family?!?! With your rapping 'rents and the debonair Grandpa East, I think one of your family reunions would be more fun than any blogging mom get-together could be :) Though I envy you the proximity to so many fun bloggers as well.

GIRL'S GONE CHILD | 1:52 PM

J's Mommy- yup. twas the first time. twas, twas.

Grandpa East- well, well, well. the men are very kissable in the fam, aren't they!? Hee!
