    Wow! At this point I feel like we've been through it together.
How'd that darn kid swallow a peanut? Did the universe throw it in the kid's mouth. Yes. I'd say it is a conspiracy for sure.

Hope the cry and workout helped. Oddly enough, I have had days like these more often than I'd like to admit. Take deep breathes and thank goodness it's over now.
