God has a sense of humor.

Okay so we go to an amazing church. One where you can feel the presence of God when you walk in the building. Well today during worship I was being moved and I almost fell while I was holding Clara. Made me wonder why God would move me quite like that at that point in time. The next thing I know I feel the great weight weighing me down..

Heh God hears all and has a sense of humor..

Kids will be kids

So this weekend is the Jazz Festival/ Art Fair downtown. I was so stoked to go, plus me girls slept in. Yay always makes for a better day! Oh and my library opened back up after phase 3 of their renovations. It's so beautiful inside. It's one of the most historical buildings in town, and it was part of the under ground railroad. It's still beautiful and historic, just a tad "fresher" and as of last year includes central air.

Anywho.. The girls and I enjoyed our walk downtown, ran into some friends, talked to artists, Moira even got to do some chalk painting. verry pretty. But the highlight (low light??)of my day was when we went to the library and get Moira out of the stroller to play with the toys she decides to pee.. and of course that would be the first time I FORGOT TO PUT A DIAPER ON HER!!! How does a mommy forget to put a diaper on her little girl?? but alas I did.. Oohh did I mention that phase 3 meant new carpet?? Yep my baby was the first one to pee on the new carpet. Go figure.. oh and the kicker?? the stroller that she was riding in for the last 45 mins? DRY!! But the brand new carpet?? WET!! Of course the one who noticed was the children's librarian that I volunteered for when I was in high school, the one who was there for me when I was having problems with my own Mother.. Her reaction?? "We need to get Moira a plaque" followed by "at least it wasn't number two"

So in order to make this mommy feel better.. I'd like to know what are your embarrassing Mommy moments?

I hate subject lines..

Just incase I have any loyal readers wondering where I was this last week. I've had a huge writers block. Guess I've been recovering from Fair Week. I've been trying to figure out what I'm supposed to say to all of the loyal Camp Candid Carrie readers who are taking a field trip from Wisconsin to Michigan.

I was planning on taking all of the Camp Candid Carrie readers on a trip to Wisconsin with me when I was little, going through Chicago, and coming home from the UP maybe even including the picture of my dad with a Big Boy moose. Somehow even that didn't seem interesting enough.. So I was cooking dinner (Chicken stir fry made with this) I happen to think of the picture I took of Moira today.

Yep that's my eldest child, asleep on the changing table, She fell asleep nursing, so when I went to lay her down (in her bed) she woke up and was somewhat fussy, but fell back asleep, I thought clothed, and diapered. The most amazing thing about it? She didn't even pee on the sheet that's on the table.

Oh and if you were wondering what a Big Boy moose big boy moose

Friday Fill-Ins

1. If I could travel back in time, I'd go to I'd like to say high school so I could get a few things right, but then I adore having my girls, so maybe not...
2. Give me a break from the Wiggles or give me __a new DVD.
3. I am listening to The Wiggles and my toddler saying "Buddy!" because that is what she calls them.
4. Somewhere, someone is thinking I've been up for so long!

5. I'll always be Mommy.
6. My idea of a good time includes Relaxing with my husband and our kids, doing something that would be fun for the kids.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to going to the County fair, and letting Moira ride the bumper boats again  because she loved it, tomorrow my plans include going to the fair again for the last time of the year, and Sunday, I want to go to church, who knows after that!
