We’re having our second daughter really, really soon! It could happen any time. I put all my chips on it happening last Saturday, because that was a full moon, but Saturday came and went, and still no baby.

Anyway, I’m making this show, plus one more, because I imagine it’ll be even more difficult to find the time after she’s born. Enjoy them!
