My opinion probably does not mean much but here goes...I have throughly 
enjoyed reading of you adventures with your babies.  I feel that you should 
make a little book, maybe for kids and more so for us older kids; it would 
be great fun reading it.
Again just my opinion. And thank you for making me smile.
