    I'm also with you on #18, sadly enough. I have never let myself think of those pregnancies as babies... just failed pregnancies.
    That is another reason why the thought of a third (re todays blog) is so scary...SO why do I keep thinking about it?

    I always looked forward to having babies and eating biscuits, bacon, and eggs every morning in the hospital!

    LOL--you never missed much with the weed-eater. Just a lot of vibration.

    I've never had a marijuana brownie either, but your post sent me to the kitchen to bake some chocolate chip ones. ; )

    Cheers! : )
