Hi. My name is Meg. I’m mom to my curious little girl, Holden, and my handsome little man, Gatsby (I was an English major).

oh, bother. was created out of my struggle as a working mom in a Pinterest world. I’m a DIYer wannabe and creative design appreciator, but I usually find myself falling a bit short in the execution. You’ll see.

You can also find me on TwitterFacebookPinterest, and Instagram, or hit me up at ohbotherblog{at}gmail.com

bumpies' funniest videos: angry baby

Calling all funny babies: The Bump is hosting a funniest baby video contest. This is the first of an ongoing series of video contests by The Bump, and the winner of this one gets a $500 Babies 'R Us gift card.

I totally submitted my "Angry Baby" video. After watching Buzzfeed's "Angriest Babies in the Whole World" video at the end of last summer, I had to make one for my grumpy little Holden. The song cracks me up ("this baby wanna use your face like a diaper."). And her faces are ridiculous.

Here’s what you need to do to enter your baby in the Bumpie’s Funniest Videos:

  1. Take a video of your baby doing/saying the funniest things (spoiler alert: we’re looking for some laugh-out-loud hilariousness here, folks!) and make sure it’s NO MORE than .60 seconds long.
  2. Upload your video to YouTube, Vimeo or Vine.
  3. Send an email to contests@thebump.com with the subject line: TB Funniest Video in order to enter you and your baby for a chance to win OR if enter the contest via Twitter, making sure to tweet your funny Vine using the hashtag #TBFunnies and mention @TheBump.
  4. The submission period begins today, Monday, 6/3, and lasts until Sunday, 6/9. Entries made after 6/9 will not be considered for the grand prize.

Good luck, ya'll!

I gave my daughter a boy’s name. hopefully she won’t hate me later.
