Today, because I am eleventy months pregnant,
because it didn't get above freezing until well into the afternoon,
and because Joel is on call,
I took my best girl out to The Noodle King and the Ice Cream Queen.
(I promise not to play favorites with my kids but this fetus is not currently my best girl. She is all elbows and she will not calm down or take her foot out of my ribs.)
Ice cream always fires up Eleanor's blood, and she chased me all the way home.
