Abraisme, I'm sorry your DH fails at shopping, that's a pain, but I had to laugh out loud! Cucumber instead of green beans? Baking soda as a spice? That's hilarious.

I'm not petite, I'm tall with a long torso, but I just want to express my respect for little mamas. It must be hard! It's not like you get a break on baby size or anything and there's just less space...
