That time of the month: Should I practice?

That time of the month: Should I practice?

Hi everyone! Happy 2015! I hope you all had a fantastic holiday season. I certainly did-- what I remember of it, at least, as the above photo encapsulates how I've been feeling for the last six weeks. My little guy, Malcolm, joined the world on December 10 at 10:36pm....
