Question for you Dawn :) If you get paid per impression over at Babble does that me if I read it on one computer, then comment from another computer and then update the comments for yet another one each of those would count as a separate impression?? We have 5 computers here at home, and 4 at my office....lol

Ha! What a great idea. That's definitely the way to camp.

You are hilarious. I am sorry you are going through such a hard time right now. I am so inspired that you are able to keep your head up and keep writing about the bright side of your life!

Now THAT is fantastic. I found you on Circle of Moms & now I think I love you.

I'm headed back to Chicago soon with the almost 4 & 6yo kids...any must-sees downtown at the moment?
