Motherhood in NYC

Smokin' the pots and the pans, I am.

Yo yo to the fie-ee-oh.

Do I sound high? I must be. Pass that *legalize the mommy ganja!* here, would ya?

I must be high, because I think a post of mine is up today at Motherhood in NYC.



As in Marinka.

Pass that virtual weed here, baby, I don't want this buzz to end.

Click on over to Motherhood in NYC, where I spill the Colombian Coffee Beans with stories on what my "colorful" Colombian childhood was like.
Always: thank you for your support, for the way you follow me through to the clicks, fully. 

You all make me look so good. And I appreciate it beyond words.

And, Marinka? I love you, man.

[truthfully? I eagerly accepted the gift of guest posting, just to get one step closer to *awesome dude*]  But, still, yeah--I must confess to my stomach dropping exhiliration at seeing an email from Marinka in the inbox. What can I say? I'm human.
