Independence Day

Today, people across our great nation will be celebrating our independence from British rule. And me? I'll be celebrating my independence from a diaper bag.

Yes folks. This is the biggest news I've had to share all year. After five long years of hauling around twenty pounds of diapers, wipes, tissues, emergency snacks, books, toys, and sippy cups, I am finally free. I've stuffed one diaper, my wallet, my cell phone, and my sunglasses into a smallish mom purse, and I'm free.

I'm not the mother of babies anymore. It's both exhilarating and terrifying. It's my independence day.

Tomorrow, I tackle the gym.
