    I’m a new mom of a six-month old, and I just finished reading your ENTIRE BLOG. Love you writing, love your family. I can’t wait until my girl is old enough to get into such trouble…it sounds like fun.

    …or, perhaps I read your blog all wrong…=).

      Thank you! It’s nice to “meet” you…

      … And I’m flattered that you read the whole blog and still hope your little one gets into the same messes we do. And you read it all right — it’s more fun than anything else.
