Number 201

This is Eve vs. Wilms blog post #201. That means that if you are my parents or husband, you have read 201 entries by yours truly. I promise you that at least two, at most three, of said posts involve me being showered and presentable enough to interact with government officials.
Well, at least showered.

Daily Affirmation

Here's to you, Cigna

Eve accompanies Natalie to the doctor because Nat has a cough and a cRaZy-looking bug bite. She has also had a fever, which we don't know whether it is related to the cough or bite. Eve does her best to let everyone know she doesn't respect me as a mother as she flits around the exam room like a hyperactive, ritalin-deprived child on Fun Dip.
