  1. I totally need to start drafting our family policy for Twerking-lol! Hilarious!

    1. Ha! I thought that was funny, too. Let’s hope twerking isn’t a fad by the time our kids grow up!

  2. Sweet Sophia! And the 19 stages of pregnancy made me laugh out loud a few times! I’m pretty sure moms-to-be go through at least half of those stages as well!

    And Spanx are hazardous to your health. I stopped wearing mine a long time ago (well, when I got pregnant…haha), but I haven’t put them on again. I noticed my stomach would hurt after wearing them for just a few hours. I never wore them often anyway, but it wasn’t really worth the pain once I realized what was doing it.
