If I may bug her and get serious for a moment, I want to express how absolutely awesome it has been working with her, building this sassy little blog with her the past nearly 2 years. She is amazingly dedicated, uber professional, freaking hilarious, always straight up -- an all-around classy chick. She has enriched me. And hopefully you.
OK, Chicklet. You can open your eyes again.
So, what now? Who could possibly follow all that?
Enter aNOTHER pregnant chick (it's OK if I tell, right?) whose second baby was delayed not by infertility but by paralysis on the part of her husband. My sassy sister Tami is joining me in this space.
Tami and her husband, Gino were Body For Life Champions (2nd runners up, if you wanna get technical) in 2000. Click over to see their inspiring before and after pix. Gino has, against all medical expectations, recovered well enough from Guillain-Barre Syndrome to return to work this month for the first time in 3 years (yay and double yay!).
Tami is mom to 5 year-old Dominic, and she teaches soccer, basketball, gymnastics and dance through a local rec center. If 5 year-olds had voting rights and a little more clout, I'm sure she'd be elected mayor. She can't go anywhere without being mobbed by them and is a rock star in their eyes.
Baby #2 is due in late summer. My daughter Tessa is SO hoping for a girl, as she has a brother and 4 boy cousins.
You may have already read Tami in this space when she wrote about the Uni-Boob. Her solo blog is called Mommy Means Well and will be developing soon.
Please give a warm welcome to my lifelong BFF (well, she's in the top two, anyway), Tami.
