Life would be so much easier if I could avoid all things baby.  If I could avoid all pregnant co-workers, neighbors, and family members.  If the grocery store didn’t have those stupid preggo-only parking signs and babies in grocery carts being pushed around every corner.  If I never went anywhere I might run into a […]

Why I love my husband

WARNING:  If you are diabetic or prone to tooth decay, read on at your own peril.  The following is way too sweet.  The author is not responsible for sugar-shock or cavities.
