Chapstick.... Cuz my lips hurt real bad

Item of business #1: I know I have been ooooober bad about blogging. But I have ooooober good excuses, which I will include.

Item #2: The title of this post has no relevance. I get sick of having to think of good titles. And because it's my birthday today, I get to write what I want.

So.... here's a little bit of what we've been up to. And if you want pictures, give up now, because I get to be lazy on my birthday and I don't want to find my camera.

*Carter is crawling. Everywhere. And not just crawling. He is pulling himself up on everything... EVERYTHING. I'm worried social services will be called because he keeps falling over and banging himself.
*He has a fascination with the toilet. Should I be worried? Every time I leave a room, I hear his pitter-patter as he follows me. When it goes silent, I find him in the bathroom... sucking on the toilet. Our toilets have never been so clean.
*Jake started a kick-a new job. We have been praying and interviewing and crying for months, and we feel so so so blessed. He is the manager/designer of a marketing firm in Cottonwood Heights. Go Jake!
*Jake also thought it would be awesome to go and tear up half of his ACL and meniscus and had surgery. He is really funny when he is high. He talks about poop. More than me.
*I am going back to work. It's a necessity thing, but I think it will be ok - it's only part time. I will be working at UVU as the graduation/transfer adviser. Or something like that.... I'm too old, because of my birthday, to remember what the job actually is. But it's only from 12-5 so I can corrupt Carter with the rest of my days. I think it will be a good thing... I am just having anxiety about having to leave my widdle baby boy. However, I hope it will help my social retardedness that I am getting from spending most days babbling Lady Gaga lines to my baby awesome.
*I am joining an awesome new choir, the Millennium Choir out of SLC. I haven't sung since college and I ooooober miss it and I hope it will be a good thing. If they can handle all my talk about poop.
*I have taken up Zumba. Best workout ever. I basically don't get the hip action/jiggling thing, because I am wa-hite as all white, but I"m good at making up my own dances. And I'm losing a lot of my jiggly parts!!
*We went on our first vacation ever as a family to St. George for the sealing/blessing of my beautiful favorite niece Lydia. Carter doesn't sleep in hotels. And he REALLY likes their toilets.

These are my thoughts for the day. Now I am going to eat 6 pounds of M&M's, because I can. Besides, I'm starting to lose control of my bowels in my old age so I better enjoy it while I can.

I hope you're having a great birthday!

Congrats on the new job. If you ever need me to watch your little guy just holler.

And I'm considering joining the choir as well. I'm still debating. If I decide to do it would you like to carpool?

Happy Birthday. Congrats on both of your new jobs. That is awesome. I actually enjoy working part time. I am with my kids most of the time but I get a chance to use my brain and talk to adults. That is just my opinion. You will do great.

Happy birthday! It's pretty exciting that you get to work actually, I firmly believe that things work out the way they are supposed to and some moms are indeed supposed to work. You're super woman and will pull it all off- no matter how "old" you get!

I love your random thoughts! I hope you had a great birthday! Good luck with the new job, hope you like it. I've been wondering about trying zumba, I definitely won't be very coordinated with it, but I hear it's fun and a good workout.

My goodness! You guys can't ever just sit still and do nothing! Every time I talk to you, you are embarking on a new adventure. Pooh on working! Now we can't play as much. Boo.
Happy Birthday, Old Lady!

Hooray for Birthdays and Zumba. Micah is addicted to the potty too. I keep the Lysol wipes in my bathroom to wipe it down often.

I think you need to becareful who you call OLD because some of us are getting offended that you think YOU are SO old. Happy late birthday anyway! I think you are hillarious and I have to say poop is a common topic for me too! Tiare has been potty trained for 1 year and all of a suddn the last 2 months she poops in her underwear 3-10 times a day.
