I'm really blown away by this. We're taking the girls with us - of course. Planning (perseverating) on my little speech. I really could just point to Mia, Gianna and Bella and say, "See? That's why." then get off the stage or whatever it is. I have nothing to wear - of course. I'm already applying deoderant - I get so nervous.
