Bye Bye!

FoxThis is my last blog entry! I'm leaving Good Housekeeping, so the blog has to end. I've been thinking for days about what I want to say, and there's just no way to sum up the last year and a half. So I've made a list:

Top ten most surprising things about having a baby:

10. You do forget the pain of childbirth.
9. You don't ever sleep. Ever.
8. They really do grow up so fast!
7. You love them more than you could possibly imagine.
6. Every baby is the cutest baby in the whole world.
5. Every baby is a genius.
4. Ohmygod, they are so expensive.
3. It is truly impossible to get into preschool.
2. Poop isn't so bad when it's your son's.
1. Hearing your baby say Mommy for the first time takes your breath away.

Thanks for a great 17 months!
