Family news!

Short post. Good News.

Well, we are inching ever closer to the final potty training stage. YESSS!! We have 3 pull-ups left and I will not be buying anymore. I only bought this one package so I think we are doing pretty darn good. It's been all of about 2 weeks since we started this whole business. Believe me, I still feel like I'm dreaming. I'm so proud of the little man though. No pee accidents at all and no poo accidents for a few days. He has found joy in pooping on the pot I guess. Finally!

Meghan is doing really good with her knee. We went to see the Orthopedic Surgeon yesterday and he said we can slowly work her out of the brace and off the crutches over the next few days. He had her bend her knee a bit and she did good although she was a little freaked out. I think she thinks her knee cap is just going to pop out again. He wants start aggressive physical therapy in about a week to strengthen her leg muscles so this won't happen again.

School seems to be going well for them both, too. Conner is starting to say more sounds/words and Meghan is making new friends. No bullies in her class this year thank goodness. Last year was rough.

Well, that's about it for now.

Have a Happy Hump Day!

School Days Again

Thank God! I thought I was gonna kill me some kids. Today is only their second day but its so nice and quiet.

Also we have some exciting news! (If you are not part of my family you will not give a rats ass about this post, sorry)

Guess who has been using the potty like a big boy?







Yep, you guessed it! My little Con man! We've only had a a few #2 accidents but I'll forgive him that. The first one was my fault anyway. I put him down for his nap and he kept getting up telling me he had to poop but nothing was happening so the last time he got up I put him back to bed saying "Oh, you don't have to poopy. Now go to bed!" Of course he got up again and the deed was done. I could have flushed myself down the toilet! He's not really into wearing the big boy underpants so we're still doing the "pull-up" thang. Found some with Diego on them so he was a happy camper. When we're done with this pack I'm not buying anymore though. He stays dry at night and through naps so big boy undies, here we come! I made him the cutest pair of boxer briefs several months back so I'll need to make some more up. I just need to find some super cute cotton knits. I had to take my M-I-L to the doctor for her broken foot (it's finally healing YAY!!) but tomorrow should be nice and uneventful. I'd like to get back to sewing everyday again.

Mr. C should be home soon so I'll sign off here. It's raining cats and dogs so I'll have to be sure to meet the bus. Ya'll have a happy Monday.

Big C's first day of school!

(Meghan erased the picture Conner took of her so I have none of her first day, dammit!)
