What a snowy winter, eh?
We had plans to celebrate Christmas with RJ's parents this weekend, but it has been postponed for the 2nd time. I'm excited though...we're doing it next weekend instead and it might be close to 30 degrees. Woo-Hoo!
The other day at Wal-Mart I scored some gingerbread houses for $1. You just can't pass up that kind of cheap entertainment. So we did one this morning.
And I tried to be clever, but the frosting is too runny.
Speaking of clever, Henry told me I was clever yesterday. He's been saying some crazy, funny stuff lately.
"snowed in again"
I'm not feeling motivated to do much today, but yesterday I did a painting for my mother-in-law. She had given me a piece of fabric from her kitchen curtains...about a year and a half ago...and I'm just now getting this done. Hope she likes it! I think it looks totally like a painting for a mother-in-law. Don't you want one for your mother-in-law?
We're trying a little potty training here today. Really, I have no idea what I'm doing. I'm just throwing a few things together that I've heard or read somewhere. Lots of crackers and drinks. Setting the timer and sitting on the potty every 15 minutes. A little reward and pep talk for trying. Results? He really doesn't "go" that often. He was so excited to put on his Thomas undies and did a little dance saying "they feel so good! they feel so good!". He ran down to show Harper and he seemed so proud. Then about 10 minutes later he had his first accident and freaked him out. Big time. Got cleaned up and changed and then tried again, but he didn't have to go the rest of the morning and now he's napping. I think I'll have to go get some lemonade tonight with my Walgreen's gift card.
What is your best tip for potty training? I honestly don't know if he's ready yet...he's not too interested and isn't bothered by his diapers, but I think it's for sure time to give it a try.
Hope you're all enjoying your snowed in day!
