This is my 3rd visit to Madison: Halloween in 2007. My friend Casey's wedding in 2012. Now Casey has two kids, both under the age of 2. Needless to say, it was a very different trip.
  1. The first kid changes everything. The second kid REALLY CHANGES EVERYTHING.
  2. Never look at your reflection in the windows of a mini van.
  3. When the kids nap, you nap.
  4. That thing @lexzie once listed about baby boogers...💯
    So gross, so strangely adorable, so frustrating.
  5. There are few things better than spending time in a Midwestern college town.
    Nostalgia rules.
  6. Sometimes, you've just gotta turn the TV on.
    Bubble Guppies was this weekend's discovery. Confusing at times but all around excellent and informative.
  7. There are SO MANY new characters on Sesame Street.

    Who are all of these fools?!
  8. There is something incredibly liberating about not wearing makeup for a solid 72 hours.
  9. I am at once not at all ready and completely excited by the thought of having my own kids one day.

    For the time being, this'll do.
  10. Every mom is an inspiration. I don't quite know how you do it. Single moms. Working moms. All of 'em.
