More Random Stuff

This morning as I was drying off from my shower, Carter was using the potty. He looked at me and asked, "Mommy, why is your tushie big?"

Let's just say that I'm looking forward to moving back to the States and getting a master bedroom with an en suite bathroom. And Carter can have his own bathroom. No more sharing.

I had been recently wondering at what age should I not let Carter see me naked. I think I have my answer.


I recently purchased Martha Stewart's Encyclopedia of Crafts. I have been loving it and am so excited to try a bunch of new projects. Problem is...craft stores here in Germany are terrible. I can't even begin to tell you how much I miss Michaels.

I have also just been kicking myself for sending my sewing machine and scrapbooking supplies to storage and not bringing them over here with me. I guess I thought I would just be sooo busy traveling and living the European life that I wouldn't have time for boring old crafts.

Oh well, I now have a long list of projects for the future.


I'm thinking of becoming a Mormon. I think at least 70% of the blogs I follow are written by Mormon women. These women are superwomen. Not to generalize or anything, but they all have at least 3 kids, churn out a quilt a week, make their kids clothes, have incredibly beautiful children, have fabulously decorated homes, have 4 course meals waiting on the table for dinner when the husband comes home from work, and write wonderful and witty blogs. Perhaps if I were to become Mormon, I could have these traits, too.

Come to think of it, it's either (A) the polygamy thing -- multiple women masquerading as 1 wife in the virtual world. One to cook, one to quilt, one to clean, one to tend to the children, one to blog, all to have children. Or (B) it's really only one woman but she's taking her kid's ADHD medication and has become uber-productive.
Sorry if I have offended any Mormons out there, but seriously, I'm in awe. How do you do it?

CArla - I came over to see your blog and the great little footstool that was featured on the Mod Podge site. I'm a Mormon and was so excited to read your comments here! Have you actually talked to anyone about our church? If you have any questions, or want to know more, just ask!

I am also a Mormon and stumbled to your blog from your footstool post. You did not offend and I actually laughed out loud about this post! Now people at work know I am definitely not doing any work right now! I have noticed the same thing about bloggers, but sadly, just being Mormon does not automatically give us these traits, as I do not possess them. And if I could figure out "their" secrets for success, I might be tempted to try it, too! Keep blogging! I loved your Mod Podged scrap paper notebooks and I'm already eyeing the waste paper bin in my office! --Tracy

My mom (Tracy from the above comment) directed me to your blog, and I can almost guarantee that you didn't offend any mormons out there! And if you did, they need a better sense of humor, that was hilarious! I'm only to one kid, and I have NO idea how all these other bloggers get anything done in a timely manner...
