I am a MOM

Wow! What a week and it's only Wednesday. I worked about 21 hours between Monday and Tuesday. I'm amazed at woman that work full time--it must be so hard.

I don't know what it is and I usually prefer chocolate, but that vanilla ice cream hits the spot every single time. We are due October 30th--I'm excited.
