Today, I have the honor of writing over at GFunkified Mrs. GFunk runs a series called Great Expectations where she gathers folks to share – you guessed it – their greatest expectations and how those expectations played out in real life.

This week I’m writing over at Mama And Baby Love…. One sweet, cherubic-cheeked child = 5011 bits, bobs and playthings strewn about the floor. Perhaps you can relate?
