    It takes you 20 minutes to shake down a vending machine? Rookie.

    I think you you may be a little hard on yourself but that shows you care. I am one thousand miles away. And yet I can tell you give everyone attention and love. I can also see that people are happy to be near you.

    Wow, sounds A LOT like my days! Luckily for me though, my baby goes to bed by 8 or 8:30, so I have a little bit more time at night to get a few things done…typically that just means falling asleep on the couch due to exhaustion. And I’ve been meaning to thank you for telling me about Target formula! Abram’s been on it since I quit nursing and he does great. And the price difference between that and Enfamil is MUCH needed. Thank you for making me feel like it was OK to feed my child store brand formula, because otherwise I would break the bank trying to feed him the name brand kind, thinking I was a bad mom for giving him the other. But I admire you so much as a mother that I knew if you did it, I could too! 🙂
