For those of you who don't know PSA stands for public service announcement. I have a few of them to share with you. They say a first born child is a real bossy know it all. That's not entirely true. I just know a lot of things that I feel others would benefit from me sharing  so listen up!

First off: An apple a day keeps the doctor away!

Next up: Give a hoot and don't pollute.

By that I mean throw things in the trash. I love to throw things in the trash.

Be a good kitten and wear you mittens!

I had to warm up to my mittens. This weather was so not LA...Look at my Mom she thinks her look is so "Heidi of the Mountain" well I got news for you she totally copied that bandanna thing off a half Finnish half French toddler I met at Reed Park.

Helmet safety: When it comes to your head use it but don't abuse it. I wore my helmet around for 1.5 days straight until my parents hid the helmet from me stating it was strange behavior What? You don't think Costco warrants a helmet?
 Think my love of my helmet correlates with my love to bang my head when I am tired/hungry/bored/impatient/ or do not want to nap in my crib?
Tunnel vision will keep you focused!

I had some great adventures wearing my helmet. Follow me! I'll take you on a tour.

Build better bones.

By way of beeches and bikinis.
Vitamin D duh!

Don't forget the sunscreen!
In this case my Mom actually did apply sunscreen and did not burn. Her face is just flushed from pushing 25 lbs of kid, 25 lbs of stroller and a bit of cargo. True multi tasking: cross fit and running and a story hour commute all in one.


Beep Beep!

Beep beep! I got wheels.
LA is not just about fashionable attire and highlights in your hair.

It's about the car you drive! Mine is fabulous. Noh? By the highlights are all natural. Kisses from the sun and pool. What? You don't believe 16 month old children get highlights in their hair? I'm sure it happens but it really doesn't matter because it is about how you look driving your splendidly fabulous car.
Despite my Mom's aversion to the automobile in lieu of her feet. I love my car. She's taken to run communting and spends all our gas and parking money on things that are more fun like clothes, shoes, and coffee (...ok and bread, milk, and rent but that makes for such a boring blog. Yawn. Snore. Who cares? I got wheels. I love my car. It's fabulous and practical too.
Practical in that it gets a least 100 miles to the gallon and the battery self charges itself when my Mom is sleeping. It's also very, very, low on emmissions. I said it was a no emmssion vehicle but that isn't exactly true. Ahem....Moving on. Montana Avenue is the perfect place to show off your car. On a daily basis you'll see Bentleys, Mercedes, Porches, BMW's and of course some hybrids cruising the street looking so fine.The corner of 15 & Montana is so everything! The Starbucks, Whole Foods, yoga studio, botiques, and hair salons are so vibrant. It's the perfect place to be seen. In fact, I have seen the papparazi many of times. Parking is hard to find and the traffic gets congested since the crosswalks are plentiful and honor pedestrians.  Imagine the envy of the Mr. $100,000 G Wagon when he waits at the corner of 15 & Montana  as I cruise across the crosswalk. Land Rover, Range Rover send Annika in her rocking pink car on over! Sorry, sir but you'll have to wait a second longer for your soy latte. Despite my car I still can pull rank as a pedestrian. I maybe mini but I am mighty.
Parking? Not a problem. I do better than rockstar front row parking. I do better than valet. I drive right through the front door. Can you say special privleges 5x fast? I may as well be a celebrtiy. It's sort of like I am almost famous. Who would have thought a car could do so much for one's esteem?

 Couldn't help but think of this video "Getting Real in The Whole Foods Parking Lot" and it aint far off. So enjoy  and drive safely.
