PPS Luckily, I was able to easily delegate the dumb crap that I do for a living, so please please remember to visit the fine folks at Mamapop who stepped up to cover my posting times AND my hand-picked dream team of guest bloggers over at the Advice Smackdown at AlphaMom. Izzy from IzzyMom, Leah from a girl and a boy and Amanda from Mandajuice filled in for me this week, and soooo many more awesome people will be posting over the next few weeks. Finally, the Advice Smackdown contains 100% actual advice that you might really want to consider taking! For the first time ever! Limited-time offer, come on down before they hand the column back to the scatterbrained crazy lady who's all waxing rhapsodic about poopy newborn diapers!
