POTTY TRAINED!!!

One down, one to go! And then I'll be DIAPER FREE! Oh my god. What will that be like?!?! I cannot even imagine. Can you believe I have had to change diapers since November 23rd 2005!!! That is 1,646 days as of today! COME ON TAYLOR!!! Let's get rid of the diapers.  So the great news is I don't have to pay the extra potty training fee at daycare anymore starting next month for Emily. (By the way, it is Emily that is potty trained. She hasn't had an accident in over two weeks I think. Watch I just jinxed myself!) It's so nice! And while we do remind her to go potty (and she puts up a fight occasionally) she will tell us when she has to go. Even when she has to go Poop!! YEAH!!!! I am beyond excited. Now if only Taylor would get interested. Even a little bit. She flaty REFUSES to use the potty. I guess the plan at preschool is start potty training her in mid June. I laughed when Surbjit told me that. They can try but I don't think they'll be successful. Taylor has a mind of her own. Hello - this is the girl that decided not to walk until 19 months. But when she did, she took off and you'd never guess she hadn't been walking for months! I'm not worried or stressed over it. Shoot, Connor wasn't potty trained until 37 months. I'm just happy I only have one in diapers now. WOO HOO!!!

Surprise Text Message

So I was at work the other day and I get a text message. I look at the number and I'm like who the heck is that?? Then I look at the text. It's a picture:



That's Emily and one of her preschool teachers! She must have seen my cell phone number somewhere and decided to send me a picture. She also sent this one:



She said Emily was hanging out with her during her break. Too cute! Was a very NICE surprise to get during the day!!!

This Weekend

I don't know what to do with myself! Tonight is Kids Night Out at preschool again. The kids LOVE going and for the price, we can't beat a night to ourselves! Our only problem is making sure we don't fall asleep and pick them up by 11pm! LOL!

Then on Saturday night, Uncle Harjinder and Aunt Edith invited the kids over for a sleep over. Wow! Two night in a row! What will we ever do with ourselves! LOL!

Potty Training Cont'd

So how are we doing?? We are doing Ok. Taylor is still NOT READY. Although she thinks she is ready, she is not ready. Emily is almost completely pee trained. YEAH!! We do need to remind her here and there but that is ok. Poop on the other hand. YUCK! If I had had to deal with this with Connor I don't think I would have had another child. Connor was the perfect child. (At least in my mind now! LOL! I bet if you go back and read I thought otherwise at the time!). So if I can get Emily to start telling us and going Poop in the potty I will be a happy happy mom. Although one sort of potty trained is a great birthday present if you ask me. =)

So funny story of yesterday. It was my birthday. Surbjit made brownies the night before and said me and the kids can eat them for breakfast for my birthday. So I go in to wake up Connor. He gives me the usuall grumps and grumbles. Doesn't really want to wake up. So I say, "do you know what's for breakfast?" His answer, "No." I reply, "brownies!" I don't think I could articulate how fast he was out of bed and in the kitchen. I swear I had barely stood up from his bed and he was already in the kitchend (quite a feat since it's on the other side of the house!). Now I guess I know how to get him out of bed in the mornings LOL! ;)
