How Motherhood Saved ‘Toy Story 2′

Toy Story 2

You’re slaving away on your latest project — maybe it’s a huge paper for school or a big time presentation for work — when all of a sudden with one or two accidental keystrokes, it’s gone. All of it. Poof. Your heart sinks and you contemplate drastic measures.
