*Lately captcha has been making me laugh. I like to make up my own definitions for the nonsense words. For example: trogedi: major train wreck that you just can't help but watch. "Have you been keeping tabs on Brit? Major trogedi."

*I bought a bag of caramels at the grocery store. Total mistake.

*I made the world's best sliders for dinner last night.

*My friends Al and Dawn just welcomed their fourth child - a boy :) He was delivered, by Al, in the front seat of their brand new minivan just after he pulled under the ER canopy. The ER nurse arrived after the baby came. It was 4 degrees outside. The hospital showed Al the security camera footage of the minivan barreling along the ice, on two wheels, and in the wrong direction up to the ER entrance. Dawn and I joked at the beginning of her pregnancy that this would happen based on her previous deliveries, and yet, I still can't believe it actually happened.

I can not imagine my husband delivering a child. He would be vommiting while trying to grab the baby!

OMG, how crazy that your friends husband delivered their about a scary moment. Did he even cut the cord, etc. How did he know what to do. Craziness.
