It's Lumpyhead's first day of preschool tomorrow, and we're not ready.

I don't mean we're all emotional about the start of our little man's second year of preschool, I mean we are actually Not Ready.

The lunchbox I ordered for him over a week ago hasn't arrived. His only pair of closed-toe shoes are a little small. His "Me Page" - the sheet we are supposed to prepare with pictures of his family and things he likes - isn't ready because we ordered photos too late in the day to get them before 11 am tomorrow.

We have two parents at home - full-time - for the moment, and still can't manage to get our shit together. Our AC broke over the weekend, Bump and I are both cranky from lack of sleep, and I still need to register the cars at the new address.

At least Lumpyhead got a haircut today.

Also, I gave Nathan Jr a bath for the first time in like . . . weeks. (I find that whole Floppy Head Thing nerve-wracking, dammit, so he doesn't get a bath until you can smell the neck cheese from three feet away.)

Oh, and what the hell is up with our netflix queue? Why do I put critically acclaimed films on the list, but once they get here I'm all "But where's Nacho Libre?"

You aren't alone. People have all kinds of netflix they can't bear to watch. Move Nacho Libre to the front of the queue.

Watch it with baseball park nachos. (Or in a pinch, the natural cheeto.) I'm sure they'll pair well with a light red.

you ordered Lumpyhead a special lunchbox. For TLM I just bought a plastic fishing tackle box.

Don't worry. I can't get my shit together and I have no kids.

And is it too late to confess that I have no idea what the nickname means? Is it an American thing that nobody but citizens of the US and A understand? Or am I just stupid?

The name (and other references) are from the movie Raising Arizona.

If I had a dollar for every time I ran a round town looking for a drugstore photo printer at the last minute I would have enough money to buy one.

Dude, if you want to watch Nacho Libre, come to my house. My husband has it permanently saved on our Tivo. And he regularly shows it to my small children. Nice.
