I am so cracking up about peeing your pants on the trampoline! What is UP with that whole loss of bladder control after you have kids thing!!? I swear sometimes I don't even know I have to pee until someone makes me laugh...or I sneeze...or cough...or jump on a trampoline! Ha ha!

I know better than to make those resolutions LOL!

OMG! I literally peed my pants jumping on the trampoline. Thankfully it was just in front of family. The bladder just ain't the same after 3 kids! :)

Just popping in to say Hi from the giveaway. Good luck!

Wow! You ask too much of yourself. J.K. It's always a good thing to try to improve. I like the calling old friends and having couples over for dinner.

***and I too cross my legs when I pee!

Gotta GROW with it said...

this was hilarious!

first off...if you're washing the poor dog, come on...give him a pat! then you can mark that one off!

and time out w/ girlfriends...we all need that one.

i'm so very impressed that you even do a resolution list. way to go.

and my favorite one of all...the trampoline accidents. tell your kids its cuz you had them that you wee wee now! they'll probably laugh anyways though.

I think I've got a perv on my blog comments. Is there anything I can do?

Go you. That is just awesome.

Well Behaved Krissy said...

This was a really cute post. Good thinking

Becky said...

I merely have to sneeze...no trampoline required.
:)

What's worse...where I live, I never know if it is pee or sweat.

Gross....did I just say that?

Anyhoo...I have been slacking with the comments lately, but I love catching up on your blog.

I think you are a remarkable mom...wish I lived nearby and some of it would rub off on me.

We are seriously considering a move to nowhere.
