earlier today, sean and i literally had a conversation about how it seems like charlotte gets into way more than carter ever did at this age. later i took the kids outside to water the gardens. i put char down at one end of the yard and went to water the other garden around the corner (just as i do every day). i was seriously gone for 3 minutes. when i came back around the corner she was all the way at the other end of the yard, as happy as can be in the just previously watered garden! what the heck!? i thought girls were supposed to be less active than boys?!?

Sean made me a delicious breakfast and surprised me with my favorite flowers. So pretty. Carter gave me the necklace and card he made me at school. He was so proud while I was reading his card...he is growing up way too fast, it made me cry! On the inside of his card was a questionnaire he answered about me. It is too cute not to share.
My mother's name is: Jessica
She is 20 years old
Her hair is blonde
Her dress size is 80
Her favorite color is yellow
Her favorite food is cauliflower
Her favorite TV show is Hannah Montana
Her favorite thing to do is lots of dishes
My favorite thing to do with my mom is help her feed my pets
My mom is special because she helps
Something my mom always says to me is can you help me clean up your toys?
Something that makes my mom happy is when I clean up my games
Something my mom does that makes me laugh is tickle
When my mom was a little girl she was big
When I am not home my mom, if it is my birthday-she would decorate
My mom is really good at playing the Toy Story match game
My mom and I are the same because we both have blonde hair
My mom and I are different because I came out of her tummy
I know my mom loves me because she says thank you for helping
My mom's favorite place to go is Arizona
What my mom likes most about my dad is he helps her move something outside or inside.
I'm so lucky to be this kid's mom and Charlotte's too of course! So grateful for my mom and Sean's mom. We're pretty lucky all the way around.

Last Saturday a group of us ran in the Warrior Dash. Here's a video to get a small taste of what the race is like. (minus the beer for us!!) It was a 3.4 mile run with 12 obstacles throughout the run. It was so much fun! I totally fell straight down into a hole in the mud pit up to my chin when I first stepped in so I just started swimming through the rest of the mud pit! I was attempting to not get that muddy. Ya right, I was covered, head to toe! The worst part was at the end when you stood in a line and they hosed you off with fire hoses--freezing!
Race stats: 57th out of 695 in my age group. 1170th overall out of 6378 runners. Total time was 36.07.60
Can't wait for next year! Who's in?
