Things I've learned lately...

-Mr. Clean magic erasers really are magic. We've had an ugly kitchen sink since we moved in. I "clean" it all the time but you can't tell. Today I tried the magic eraser. I could have been in a commercial for it. Amazing.

-When you're pregnant, all public bathrooms feel like airplane bathrooms.

-Everything is a little bit better if you have cute toenails.

-Pottery Barn Kids employees need to learn to communicate with each other. Cute and comfortable stuff, but 5 different stories from 5 different people about where it is and when it will be delivered to my house.

-Watermelon works the best. Better than fiber-one, prune juice, grape juice, or anything else your doc tells you to try. When you're pregnant, backed up, and on 2 iron supplements, eat a watermelon.

-Food really does taste better if someone else prepares it for you. (Thanks, Paul)

-You can plan your work days, weeks, months as much as you want, but it's never going to go as planned. My advice? Don't decide how much and when you can work when you're growing a baby, let your body and your baby decide, and then just go with it.

-Chiropractor's help, but they aren't magic. The back pain won't totally go away. (Only Mr. Clean is magic.)

Sorry the chiropractor wasn't magic! Hopefully a couple more times will get you through to the end.
