...did not get the memo...



Some small child of mine did NOT get the memo that Nudie Magazine Day is very important to Mommy and completely defiled the Newsweek. Poor Newsweek. 


And just so there is no confusion: 
(Nudie Magazine Day is when the Newsweek arrives at Jennie's house, this usually occurs on Tuesday. She waits patiently by the mailbox until the precise moment when the Newsweek arrives, shuffles the kids into their bedrooms for their naps, and devours it. She is very happy when Anna Quindlen writes the last essay. She is very displeased when Nudie Magazine Day does not occur on Tuesday, but somehow ends up being on Wednesday. When someone else (i.e. the Manny or the Husband) retrieve the Newsweek first and read it all before she does, she pouts and sulks, the nudie magazine has lost it's luster and newness and she is no longer interested in it. She stole this phrase Nudie Magazine Day from the movie Billy Madison.)
