|The first really nice day of spring. Yay for park days!|
As Will walks in the door coming home from work.
Joseph: Hi, daddy! Where you been?
Will: At work.
Will: To make money for the family.
Joseph: Ooooh! Wike mommy?
|"This is mommy's vacuum..." "Oooooh! I see. How interesting."|
Joseph: Daddy work at monies?
Will: Daddy works for money.
Joseph: Oooooh! Daddy works five money.
|I'm a "fun mom"... on occasion.|
|See? So. Much. Fun!|
The first couple days Joseph was pretty upset that I wouldn't put a diaper on him. And at least one time he sat on the changing table crying for a diaper. But his requests for diapers waned, and by day 4 or 5 he was on board and was saying "we're all done wiff diapers, wight mommy?"
Within about a week Joseph wasn't having any accidents and often wakes up dry from both naps and night time sleep! Woohoo! I was a little wary of using treats to coax the potty training process along, but it definitely worked and he rarely asks for them anymore (only 2 weeks since we started).
John loves when I sweep. I think it's one of his favorite things to do - watch me sweep. He especially likes to squat over the dirt pile and search for treasures. I wish I had a picture of it, but every time it happens I'm - you know - sweeping...and trying to keep him from ingesting any of the dirt (although when there are legit pieces of food it's possible that I look away).
|Breakfast with Grandpa.|
What did I do? I let John down from his booster seat and let him have at it. Breakfast? Taken care of.
I then went to get Joseph out of bed and let floor Cheerios be his breakfast, too. It actually bought me a little time to get lunches packed without the boys underfoot. Win for me :)
|The boys were thrilled. A million Cheerios on the floor to sit in, play in and eat? So. Awesome.|
