I liked reading your 100 things. You stole your neighbor's cat, had it fixed, AND gave its kittens to the pet shop?! What kind of person does that??! :) Seriously, I think we may have a lot in common. That was fun to read. I did this on another blog I had. I think I could only go up to 50, but I was too embarrassed to publish it for some reason. Maybe I will now.

Congrats on your pregnancy! Welcome to the club....they say the third one is the hardest. Let's prove them wrong. I make up recipes just to have Peanut Butter and Chocolate together.


Jamie said...

Oh, and congratulations on the baby. What do the kids think?

Congrats on being pregnant by the way. I read it on Brandon's blog last week. When are you due any way?

Wait, what? Pregnant?! Doll, that is crazy! Congrats. If you need any parenting tips I have learned lots of them from having Claudia (the Great Dane puppy) and I think they all apply to human children. 1. I have learned that the spray bottle is great for behaviors you want to stop. 2. A good collar is priceless. 3. Make them work for treats. Sit & Stay is very practical. 4. Don't spank them when they pee on the floor. 5. Well, you get the idea.
