Heads Up! featuring Mommy Shorts

by | May 18, 2011 | Uncategorized | 5 comments

Zee has, at some point, while asleep, bitten me. On the nipple. While breastfeeding – yes, that saga continues. Fuck.

Now, every time I feed him, it feels like pouring vodka onto a papercut.

But on my NIPPLE.

So, I am feeling sorry for myself.

So instead of going to the gym or writing a proper blog, I'm going to sit on the couch, watch Angry Boys and possibly eat chocolate.

But I can't leave you hanging. And it's about time I updated my Heads Up! spot in the left sidebar. 

So Heads Up! people. I have an awesome blogger to tell you about.


Her name is Ilana and she writes the hilarious Mommy Shorts. She is also a Typepad stablemate so we're pretty much sisters. Except for she lives in New York (not just the state but actually, the island. You know, of Manhattan) and has a daughter

Technically, I should not like Ilana.

But I so do.

So instead of subjecting you to my lamentations about papercut nipples (seriously, how fucked up is that?), I present you with highlights from Mommy Shorts.


Toddler Fight Club – read this if only to watch the awesome editing of her home video

Intruder In The House – her boobs have been stolen, I repeat, her boobs have been stolen!

Dear Mariah Carey – because she cares about new mums

Meet The Dog That Will Destroy Me – because dogs suck

Babies On A Plane – she even makes pie charts – funny pie charts


Have a great night and I'll see you tomorrow. I'm seriously going to tell you about making pom poms.


Hello friends


I’m Angie!  I mum. I write. I wife. My husband would say this is the correct order.  He’s so neeeedy. I live with my family in Melbourne, Australia, where I complain about the weather for 90% of the year – but I can’t imagine living anywhere else. Except maybe in Lake Como, waving to my neighbours George and Amal each morning.

    I have to confess that I’m a recent new follower of Mommy Shorts, courtesy of her comments I’ve been seeing here. Her snark hits the spot for me!

    And Chris Lilley has a new show? Swoon! And grumbles, because I can’t watch your link – it won’t view outside Australia. I’m desperately hoping ABC’s iview site will work – fingers crossed.

    Hope your nipple’s feeling better – I know all about that pain… x

  2. Angie @ The Little Mumma

    Isn’t she great?? So great.

    Yes, Chris Lilley is back! And with partial funding by HBO. Can you believe? He is such a superstar.

    And hilarious? Oh, so hilarious. You will LOVE Angry Boys.

    How awesome are you, fellow typepad friend! Thanks so much for the surprise!

    I love Ilana and Mommy Shorts.

    And no, she didn’t pay me to say that. Hee hee.

    Oh wow, she is super funny babe!!!
    And the biting of nipples, I hear ya sister, Benny gave me two good goes 2 nites ago!! Have threatened to take boob away if he does again! Thank fuck I’m only doing his before bed feed now, I do thoroughly suspect that the biting was his way of alerting me to the fact there aint’ no milk left, I’m convinced he’s just sucking on boob for comfort now!!! Hope the nipple papercuts heal super fast for you lovely!
