It’s almost 10:30pm. The kids are asleep. My husband is out playing cards. And, I should be in bed because the baby will be up in the night to feed, I’m sooo running on empty in the sleep department, and I’ve been trying to get myself to a Saturday morning 8am yoga class for two months now. (I haven’t made it there yet!)
But, I’m up blogging.
If you’re reading this, perhaps, you can relate. What is it about us “mommy bloggers”? We just can’t get enough, can we?
I’ve had the idea for World Moms Blog’s “review/letter from the editor” column for our empty Saturday slot in my head for weeks now. (I need help with the name for it, please help!) It’s time to put it into type…

Five and a half years ago, my husband and I found out we were pregnant with our first child, and we were ecstatic. There was so much planning to do. We had to decide on a name for a girl and one for a boy since we chose not to find out what we were having.
