MPRE, and other such nonsense.

Babylicious LOVES to help me with my make-up. Obviously, I use the word “help” quite loosely. That is, by “help”, I mean stand at my feet hollering until I hand him whatever it is I have just applied to my face. Whether it be my blush brush, eyeshadow, or eyeliner, it is fascinating to Babylicious. I can usually disuade him from spending the ENTIRE time snapping at my ankles by pointing and shouting emphatically “Look!!! Babylicious!!! A QUARTER!!!!”

What? You don’t let your hey-let’s-put-everything-into-our-mouths toddlers play with small shiny pieces of metal? It’s great entertainment… you should TOTALLY try it…

Anyhoo, so today babylicious and I were doing the make-up dance, me pointing emphatically, him yelling and throwing things at my head, when I did something that I hardly ever do. I handed him my eyeliner after I was finished applying it.

Let’s pause here to note that Babylicious is at that stage where he literally imitates EVERYTHING we do. Hubster coughs, babylicious coughs, then smiles. I rub my belly (yes, a daily occurrence (why did I just spend 5 minutes trying to figure out how to spell that word?) Don’t judge me) Babylicious wips up his shirt and rubs his own belly, and then smiles, of course. You do NOT want to know what he does when he comes to the bathroom with me. I’ll totally leave that to your imagination.

Anyhoo, back to the eyeliner. I hand it to him, with the ridiculous thought that the cap was on tight enough that a child would be unable to open it. Can you see where this is going?

I finish putting my makeup on, smiling because I was able to finish in peace. I turn around and babylicious is sitting on my bed and he has eyeliner ALL OVER HIS FACE.  As if that isn’t funny enough, it is concentrated around his left eye. How freaking adorable, right? He was trying to put on eyeliner, ON HIS EYE!!! Where it’s SUPPOSED TO GO!!!

But, the problem is, it’s the 16 hour Revlon Colorstay eyeliner. That shit is HARD to get off. If you don’t use either vasaline or real make-up remover to take it off, it will stay on for days, DAYS. Needless to say, when I get home from school, I will be taking a face cleansing wipe to his eye socket.


On Saturday I had to take the MPRE. For those of you not in the “Law School” know, that is the Mulitstate Professional Responsibility Exam. It’s basically an ethics exam that all future attorneys must pass before taking the Bar Exam.

Ethics you ask? Yes, ethics. Because apparently a few years back Lawyers began getting a reputation for dishonesty and un-ethical behavior. I know right? Go figure. A dishonest attorney. Boggles the mind.

Anyhoo, this ethics exam is only offered in a variety of places and being as though I live in a community with a population of about 200, I had to do a bit of traveling. I woke up at 5 a.m. Kissed Hubster and Babylicious goodbye, and headed off into the sunrise. Ugh. It was horrible. I don’t care how much sleep you get. When you wake up LONG before the sun rises, you’re going to feel tired. I had coffee, but of course it didn’t kick in until around hour 1.5.

I made it to the exam with plenty of time despite the raging headache I incurred after listening to 3 hours of Conservative talk radio.

I have to get an 85 to pass in Virginia. Let’s cross our fingers.
