I'm like a Cow...

Charlie: "Are you like a cow?"
Me: "Uuuuuuhhhh... what do you mean?"
Charlie: "Cows give us milk and you give the baby milk so you're like a cow."
Me: ".............................Yep. I guess I'm like a cow."

This is my favorite commercial. It's hysterical.

I bought some Swagger for Brent. Not that he needs any help at all but we'll see how it goes (not with 'the ladies' but with HIS lady, you silly.)

Dissed By The Blog Gods...

Lately my lack of posts is due to the fact that I was dissed by the Blog Gods.
It seems everywhere I turn there is someone telling me that I shouldn't be blogging because I'm not good enough to blog.
I've heard everything from "I've been blogging since '91 and that makes me better than you" to "Mommy Bloggers suck because their lives revolve around their kids"... blah, blah, blah.
Let me tell you, I was shaken for a moment.
I thought maybe this blogging thing wasn't right for me. Maybe I'm not cut out to be a blogger.
But then, I was like "Hold the phone!"
Why do I care what the Blog Gods think? And if they hate the Mommy Bloggers so bad then WHY are they reading their blogs? They don't have to, you know.
And the main reason I am keeping this blog is for ME! I want to remember these days and my brain can't do it alone.
It's not (for) you, it's (for) me.

Here's a link for more information on the race:

So far it looks like we might have a fun little team to run the race. I'm totally so excited.

Race For The Cure...

I'm running the good race again this year and I'm going to run it with grace and ease. (I pray.)
I try to run this race every year but let's just say I've missed a few years due to babies. I'm not blaming them, I'm just saying.
I will be back in full force on May 9th (exactly 4 months away.) It's a 5K. Nothing too difficult. The hardest part is the people that turn out. The last year I ran it ('07) there were 16,000 people there. That's a lot of people. But it's my favorite race because of the people. People fighting and running for the same thing: to find a cure for breast cancer. So I'm on the look out for my new pink tenni-runners for this year (and if I have no luck finding any, I'll wear my old ones from 2 years ago.)
So, wanna join me? We could have a team or something. Maybe make t-shirts.
All I'm asking is that you want to do it and you're willing to wear pink and run beside me (I might wear an ipod.)
What do ya say?

Before there was Christmas and 2009...

Charlie had a birthday and turned 4!
Can I just start by saying "Thank Heaven for 4!"
The Terrible Twos and the Horrible Threes are gone. And for that I am deeply grateful.
I love my Charlie.
We threw him a birthday party with cake, ice cream, balloons, streamers, pin the tail on the donkey, presents, 6 friends (no girls), a green dinosaur pinata, Batman, Transformers, Darth Vader and Spiderman. It was a wild good time!
Here's the documentation:

New Year's Resolution...

I'm not usually one for resolutions.
This year may be my first year.
These are my resolutions:
