The time when... We were just starting to go out and were talking about our teen crushes. He loved this teen pop singer from a famous 80s group (here in Mexico) and was and has always been his crush. I said, "well she isn't the most good looking of the girls in the group", and he said, "well I've never liked good looking girls"... gee thanks!!... I get that what he was trying to say is that looks don't matter, but boy, was that a line to remember... 11 years after I still tease him about it
I wasn't much into blog reading until by accident I found yours, so I have nothing much to compare it too but as a graphic designer myself I do appreciate the good and attractive use of color scheme and type. More classifications are always welcomed, when I catch up with recent entries, I just lurk around old posts in the suggestions below. Hell I can't think of anything!! I love the way it is!! Although as everyone says, Harlow must definitely be somewhere in the top banner with Mazzy.

Mine might not make it cause there's already a Cokatoo, nevertheless, these are sooooo hilarious, it was a hard competition really. They all are so amazing, it will be very hard for you guys, good luck!
Regret buying a sling, one of those simple ones with fabric and a ring, that look so chic and easy to use. I just never got the hang of it, baby hates it and I just don't feel save using it, I feel like I'm going to drop her or she's gonna fall or something. Maybe I should've invested more time researching or just get one of those plain strappy ones that looks like a backpack. I might give it a try again but I just had too high expectations and it just didn't work. Luckily, baby is not so carry-me-all-the-time-oriented, meaning she's comfortable in a pack and play or swing or bouncer, so I can get things done around the house.
I actually eat the whole cake part first cause cake is not my favourite, and save icing for last with just a thin crust of cake... I did see this in Nashville too and thought it was kinda cool

I don't always giggle and do the baby talk thing, but when I do, I make sure to stop once you find your phone and turn on the video camera
First of all, I love your blog. I've never been much of a blog-reading person but I found it while I was pregnant and got caught up. I am currently catching up with all of it and recently been reading the posts about going back to work and being a career person... I can relate to your situation. I was also laid off shortly after I returned from maternity leave and it has been difficult mainly because we need the double income, although on the bright side, I got some more full-time-mom experience with my now 3M baby. I'm mexican and by law here, you get to leave 42 days before due date and return 42 days after the baby is born. I both need and love to work and during pregnancy I worked on convincing myself that it was ok, that I would not be the first working mom in the world, nor the last. My little girl will appreciate the fact that her mom does both (I hope) and is all for her own good and our family (I really really hope she sees it that way some day). I didn't have the time to fully develop the "guilt" of going back to work and leaving baby with my mom or in daycare, but I think it will happen, as much as I prepared myself against it, it will happen at some point, it's inevitable. And it happens both ways I think. Most of my friends with kids became stay-at-home-moms and sometimes some of them tell me they wish they had something else to do besides taking care of the kids, so it's not guilt but it's the same the-grass-is-greener-on-the-other-side kinda feeling... I am looking for a permanent job and hoping to get one soon (cause it's hard with only one income, plus baby and all the extra costs that she implies). Sometimes I think, maybe if I didn't NEED to work because of the money, maybe I would consider taking some time off, but the reality is that I can't do that right now. As for the working at home, thing, I am a graphic designer and people just think that it's so easy to work at home as a freelancer but I agree with you, I am an office person, I can't get anything done at home... I will try to catch up with you blog before I get a job and have less time, but I totally relate to your line of thinking, and it's nice to know I'm not the only one going through this dilemma, specially since every time I think about it over an over again, I always get to the same conclusion: I will be a working mom and I will make the best of it and I will be awesome at it. Sorry for the long post...
