    Um....no. Poop laundry is a key indicator of things NOT going well (for me, at least). But I'm roasting a chicken tonight with a new recipe and I'm super stoked to see how it turns out. And, I will also say that y'all are lame today. Where you at ladies? Okay Kyla, maybe it's just the two of us today!

    OK, well, that one does suck. But at least the Dr appointment went well yesterday. Hopefully the poop is just a flu and will pass fast. That poor boy is having a hard summer! You can tell him that I know lots of 4 year old boys in night pullups, nothing to be ashamed of. Our family has slow learning bladders for most of our boys. Its hereditary, but causes accidents at night till they are older.

    We need to find something that we disagree about to start a debate. Hmmm....pretty sure we are on the same side for health care....circ.....immunizations....hmmmmm

    Kyla here are some good ideas for nd good for you for wanting to start! I got really into running after my third was born. For me, the best way to start running is just to commit to it ~ and get out there and do it. I used mapmyrun or Nike+ which are free iPhone aps that will track your mileage and time for you. set small, realistic goals ~ if you are overweight or out of shape be gentle on yourself ~ and determine what will work best for your particular personality. For me, I'm not good at following a specific plan, so I followed my bodies lead. Other people might really like the specificness of a C25K type plan. Either way, invest in a decent pair of shoes, and thats it! If you can find a friend to run with I personally find that tremendously motivating ~ I love getting in time with my girlfriends while working out and love the accountability of knowing that someone was counting on me to be there for them.

    Chicken sounds good Lisa. I have chicken in the crockpot with tomatoes and artichokes. We are supposed to go to the pool after naps but its freakishly cool here today so I'm not sure, may change course to the park or arboretum instead. I had an awesome 2 hour 15 minute yoga workshop this morning which was a little funny hopping around to account for my one toe, but it worked and ended up being a better workout. I made a delicious salmon salad and am watching my kids try to feed a grasshopper that they just caught while I eat. Poor grasshopper.

    Melis, broken toe and all you're still working out. You are pretty inspiring, woman. I found a great chicken crockpot recipe too but I would have to have it in by now and I don't! I'm stuffing the cavity with thyme and doing a great dry rub. I find though that some of the best roast chicken is the simplest - kosher salt and pepper on the skin and let the chicken roast on a bed of carrots, potatoes and fennel. I bought a new pair of Saucony's recently and they have made a big difference for my feet when I exercise or trail climb. The fibro really does flare up in my feet from time to time and I get bouts of plantar faciitis, but the nice runners really help. I wear a Fitbit when I climb and the steps sure add up! Keeps me motivated to see the calories I'm burning too. Kyla, I double dog DARE you to start a circ debate. And yes, I think as Canadians we're on the same healthcare page. It just seems to boggle my mind - the state of healthcare for many in the US. I'm like "Why can't they just do what we do?" But then, we're way more socialist here in Canada. We do have more government involvement in stuff like that.

    I hope your little guy is feeling better. I thought about going back to night time pull ups for Caitlyn because she had been wetting the bed, but once I bought the pull ups and put one on her she stopped wetting the bed. I am not sure if she had just being going through a fluke or what.

    After yesterdays debates, I am a little debated out today.

    Yum! Roasted chicken and chicken with tomatoes and artichokes sound really yummy! Melissa, great tips for starting running. I personally like a C25K program because my body is lazy and would have me walking the whole way if I listened to it! LOL

    Bonita - how long did her bed wetting last? T peed the bed last night for the first time in like a year so I'm hoping it was a one time fluke and not going to become a thing.

    For those of you that breastfed, did you ever feel like you didn't want to be touched when you were breastfeeding? When I breadtfeed on the couch, T always wants to come and "snuggle" which means basically huddling up next to my side with his arms wrapped around my arm and his head on my shoulder. Normally I would love cuddling with him, but for some reason I have a hard time with it, like I just feel so claustrophobic and do t want to be touched any more. Has anyone else felt that way or am I just a terrible ice queen mom?

    THanks Melis, thats awesome. Isnt it funny that when you try to think of what songs will be good, I draw a blank, but then I see a list like that, and it just triggers it back. That is jsut what I needed!

    The bed wetting lasted a couple of months. I was worried that it could be related to her tethered cord (and still plan to ask the doctor about it at her next check up), but it seems to have stopped.

    Does not make you an ice queen at all. Everyone has moments that they need a little space.

    I didn't Alissa because I was always so hot when I nursed and while I'm relatively cool to my touch DH and the kids shoot off heat like a bunch of ovens. Plus, having one kid attached to your boob...I don't think I would want another one draped over me. I don't think it makes us cold.
