  • Baby eduPavich was the inspiration for this blog...she thought it a good idea for new mommy to work double time :-)ABUNDANCE

Oh, and did I mention I was 32 weeks pregnant at the start of this blog?  Yes, proud mother-to-be typing here :-)  UPDATE:  Baby Willow Scott Pavich has since been born…:-)

In fact, Baby eduPavich was the inspiration for this blog.

Since I am due the Friday before FY13 starts (UPDATE: Baby Willow was indeed born on her due date…way to be on time, girlfriend!), I figured this was a good way to stay connected as I, too, am learning the ropes of a new course…it’s called Mommy-hood 101.

Who are You??  Let’s get to know one another!!

UPDATE:  Here’s a more recent pick of me and my new bestie…Errr, my new bestie and ME…

Enjoying these most precious moments before I get my blog on full-time again...
