And I forgot it all…

I started and deleted four different posts tonight. Everything from the shallow waters of The Voice premiere (Team Blake!) to deep thoughts about some of the ugliness we see around us daily.

And then my sweet, powdery, slightly sweaty, milky, drooling, smiling, babbling baby snuggled into my shoulder and started snoring.

And I forgot it all.

How To: Make Ahead Freezer Meals

Even though I smiled and flirted with the nurses, they still gave me shots – I felt so betrayed!

We were going to visit Mommy’s office, but I was sooo sad that we decided to go home and snuggle instead.

So me and my Charlie Brown bandaid will just sit here and be pitiful for awhile…and no more flirting with pretty girls for me if this is what I get for it!
