Potty Training

Don't ask where I've been. =)

So Surbjit comes home Tuesday and asks if we have underwear for Emily. I said yes. I bought a TON about 6 months ago when she was showing signs she was ready and I was thinking of trying to potty train. I just never got around to it. Well I guess Miss O said she wanted to start potty training Emily so I sent underwear (or chonies as Miss O likes to call them) and lots of pants. I got home yesterday and anxiously awaited the news of how she did and guess what? Not ONE accident. Not even during nap time. Go Emily! Of course then she proceeds to not only have a pee accident at home but right after I got her off the stinking toilet (where she didn't do anything) she goes poo in her underwear. YUCK! This is why I didn't want to potty train.

Of course, now that Emily is wearing chonies, Taylor says she wants to wear chonies. Ugh. So I sent more underwear and more pants today. We will see how it goes. I did send Emily to school wearing underwear! I know she is ready she just needs to click it all together everywhere we are, not just as school. I just feel sorry for Surbjit. This couldn't have been a worse week to start it. I'll be gone this weekend to Vegas and he'll be with the kids all weekend. GOOD LUCK BABE!!!

Playing Outside

The beautiful thing about living in Southern California. The weather. We went outside after dinner and played outside until 7 pm. I see this A LOT in our future. =)

Strawberry Picking & A Trip to the Doctor

We went to pick the kids up from Kids Night Out and the teachers are like Emily eye looks swollen. It doesn't look like pink eye, just swollen. So we looked at it and it sure did look puffy. By the next morning, her eye was almost swollen shut. Was it bothering her? No. But we were supposed to go to Tanaka Farms with my multiples group so Surbjit took Emily to the doctor and I took Taylor and Connor to the farm. We were hopeful they would be done in time to meet up there by 11am when our tour was to start. And they did! Of course Emily is the only one that does NOT like strawberries. What is wrong with that girl??? LOL! But they all had fun. My pictures are still on my camera but one of the moms took this picture of Taylor trying an onion. I thought they were delicious - the kids - not so much. =)

After the tour it was lunch time so since I packed a lunch, we went to a local park and ate lunch there. It was a beautiful park (my new park for the month! Well ok, I'm one park behind so I need to go to another park too this month). Since we had given Emily benedryl (her diagnosis was possible allergic reaction to something?? don't know) she was kinda tired and they all were cranky since it was nap time. But we got to play on the playground and walk around the lake. It was a beautiful day. Then we went home and basically stayed inside the rest of the weekend since Sunday was just yucky outside. By Sunday afternoon, Emily's eye was back to normal. And it never really bothered her at all. Weird.

Well . . .

I didn't really end the month so good now did I? I missed a total of 4 days I think. Maybe 5. Not too bad! I can't guarantee you'll get as many posts as you did in March but I'm going to try my hardest!

We are going to Grandma & Grandpa's for Easter. The kids can't wait. Of course, they also keep saying they are going to see Grandma D too and we have to tell them (mainly the girls) that she lives far away and it's just Grandma and Grandpa this time. Wish us luck! It's a 6 hour trip and we are leaving tonight at bedtime. Hopefully we don't wake up the whole house when we get there at about 1am. Well, ok it would just be Grandpa because Grandma has to wait up for us anyway so we can get in!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter! Enjoy!!!
