    Five minutes prior to this picture: we're waiting at the AT&T store for new iPhones, running on no sleep, trying to figure out how to get the baby in the stupid wrap. She is screaming. Another customer sidles up to us. "How old is he?!" We ignore her. "EXCUSE ME, how OLD is he?" Husband has hanger-induced tantrum. I excuse myself to the car to feed the baby a tiny bottle.
  6. Attempting to work out with an exercise routine I ripped out of a fit pregnancy magazine I stole from the OB's office. Wearing wet diapers on my boobs because breastfeeding is PAINFUL Y'ALL
