The talents you acquire as a mother:
The ability to type a blog with 1 hand while holding a raspberry-blowing baby in the other.
The ability to not shower for 2 days and not smell "too bad."
Being able to decipher a 4 year old's rendition of Star Wars

We are off to my sister's house tonight for some bbq and ice cream and to play with their kids as well.
I am trying to figure out how it is that OTHER people have such interesting blogs and mine seems so trivial! I guess I need to give myself some time to find my groove. But, as it is right now, I hear a diaper being filled (tmi) so I must go!
I wonder when/if I'll ever have anyone reading MY blog??? I SWEAR, I AM interesting. It just may take a while to prove it!!
