My name is Lauren, and I live in the bubble. I am wife to Marshall, the biggest BYU fan in the world; and mother to Carly, our big girl, and Wes, our wild man, and Calvin, our new addition. I graduated BYU with a degree in Social Work, and I went forth to serve at LDS Family Services. I like scrapbooking and going out to eat at nice restaurants. I am fascinated by new cleaning products at the grocery store, so I have to shop in wide circles around the perimeter to avoid the temptation to buy. I love chocolate.

Carly lately

- Carly was being bossy so I asked, "who put you in charge?" She said, "Mommy did." I asked, "I did, huh? Why would I do that?" And without missing a beat she said, "because I've been trained as a pirate!"

- Carly has started to get very opinionated. She has an opinion about which clothes she'd like to wear, and if I bring her an outfit she's not feeling, she'll tell me "No, that outfit's not right for me." She prefers skirts and dresses over pants, and when given the option will always choose pink. How did I raise a girly girl?

- At church a few weeks ago, Carly had to go to the bathroom every 20 minutes. By the 4th time we were in there, I asked her "where did you drink so much water?" She answered right away, "I drank a lot of water today in the bathtub." mmmm....bath water.

- Carly and I were playing a game of "baseball" a couple weeks ago with an imaginary bat and ball. Apparently my imaginary swing wasn't up to par- she corrected me "No, mommy, like this. You have to step into your swing!"

- A couple days ago, Carly had an accident. I asked her to go put new underwear on after she had put the old pair in the wash. She told me, "No, first I have to dry off." She then spent about 5 minutes bending over with her tush aimed at the fan. She would lift one leg, then the next. Only after she was sufficiently dry from all angles, and I had died laughing, did she go get new underwear.

- Today I told Carly she could have some cookies, but the she'd have to pick up her toys once she was done eating them. I asked her if it was a 'deal,' and she agreed. After she finished her snack, I asked her to pick up. "No!" she said. I reminded her we had a deal. She smiled broadly and said "It wasn't a real deal; we didn't shake on it." I was actually kinda proud and worried at the same time.
