Well now...that little burst of blogging energy fell right off, didn't it? Let's try that again. I'll start by thanking everyone for their ideas both here and offline on how to manage the new-mom-crazies. I would most especially like to thank all of you who by your suggestions imply that I might be even a wee bit anal about the housecleaning and that I should let it go.

I'll still be the last person out there to do the Rhinebeck Roundup, but then, what else is new?
What? Oh, you say you want MORE random pics of my kid for no good reason? Cool. I can do that.
