You know you're a mom when...

Today, I took my bug-covered, dirt smothered car to the drive through car wash. Ours is called the Goo-Goo Car Wash, so we just call it the Goo-Goo. When I got there, the Goo-Goo employees (always dressed in ties???) told me BEFORE I went through the first time that it would take 2 trips through the car wash to even touch the bugs. It was on them, so I was all for it!

After my second trip through, I got out to vaccuum and realized that I'd forgotten the towel that I normally bring to help dry/ wipe the dirt out of the creases of the car. Hmmm. Looking around the car... AHA! Baby wipes! That's right! They helped get those bugs and random dirt off like a charm!

So, if you smell a fresh baby hiney coming down the road, it might be me!

hey.
i'm thinking about doing 2 albums. one, the more traditional, that we never pull out....full of all the necessary shots...
and another, more scrapbook-like book, that will be like a coffee table book....with cute pictures, vibrant colors, silly stuff.
whatcha think?

I don't know what I used before baby wipes. They are so handy! But of course, I didn't have two sticky-handed, messy-faced babies running around either...
