Re: "Exploits of a Mom"

its too bad its too long to enter into the name field on testing documents, that way it gets scanned in and then added to the testing database.

as for names, my fiance, whos pretty sure we are going to have twins one day, has forbidden me from naming one of them control. not even the middle name.
