While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about.

ready or not!
Lately Christian has a new past time and it isn't one I was excited about. He goes in his room and takes his diaper off! We have a lego table with deep wells in the sides to store the legos and he sits on the edge and says, "I poop!" I frantically grab him off everytime and thank goodness he didn't really poop. Phew! Recently he took his diaper off and put the doll stroller on Ethan's bed, sat in it, and PEED all over the bed. He was proud of himself. LOL! I was not happy. We decided to go buy a potty chair and see what he does. Well, last night as soon as I got it out of the box, he sat on it and peed. It was a couple drops. We cheered. He sat back down and peed a few more drops. We cheered again. I told him to go more. He sat down, concentrated, and jumped up, "I POTTY I POTTY!!!" I looked in there and there was a lot of pee. WOW! That was awesome! So we emptied it out and he continued to use it until bedtime. Very exciting. I was curious what today would bring. He woke up without wetting his diaper so I helped him off with it and he peed on the potty. It is an hour and a half later now and he has peed a couple more times in it. I wonder if he really may be getting potty trained. I am not going to hold my breath.
Also, here is an update with the garden. The pic is of the beans. They are doing well. The tomatoes and a cucumber plant, and a squash plant are not looking so hot. I hope they get better!
I have 4 kids and a great husband that keep me busy. When I am not wiping bums or nursing a baby or cleaning messes or doing laundry or cooking dinner I like to crochet, do other crafts, or relax and read a book.
