[quote=""Julianne Douglas""]Wow. That's all I can say! :eek:

No, I'm counting the minutes until my three year-old goes to bed. It's way past time now, but he's having a pillow fight with dad and I hate to break it up....[/quote]

All bets are off Julianne - if you have one of those! I'm suprised you can even switch the laptop on wthout interruptions.

There are fifteen months between mine.

Me: Whaddya mean the pill isn't so effective just after birth?
Doctor: Because your hormones are all over the place
Me: NOW you're telling me???

Anyway, when mine were two and three, getting dressed in the morning was a major achievement.

You're a better woman than I am!

Well done everyone who's made a good start on Day 1. I'm procrastinating for England at the moment :( and I don't even have small children to take care of.

Julianne - I'll add your NaNo name to my buddy list when it opens up again. Mine is araucaria.

Great job, Cindy! You must be so "high" after the release of your beautiful cover that the words are just pouring off your pen. :)

Nothing yet for me today. Hey, the night's still young... (wish I were!).

I hope Anita and Cordaella had productive days. What about you, Divia? Did you decide to jump in? And Michelle, how are the edits going?

Didn't get much done the last two days, but today I'm smokin'! Just dropped baby off at preschool, so I've got a good two hours of writing ahead of me. Had some major plot revelations on the drive home, so I'd better go jot them down before i forget!

Have a good writing day, nanoers!
