Mommy moment...

You know your kids are getting big when they can go potty all by themselves without any help at all. Up until this week, Paige has been coming into my office, dancing around me, urgently saying... potty, potty, potty, potty! We have been potty training for a few months now and she has been doing awesome! Earlier this week, I was working in my office and all of sudden here this flushing sound coming from the bathroom. Paige had gone into the bathroom, moved her stool over to the light switch, turned on the light, moved the stool over to the toilet, went potty, flushed, put her panties back on, moved the stool over to the sink, washed her hands, then turned off the light... all by herself without asking for help! I must say, I am very proud of her. She has done this all week without any help and I am LOVING IT!

Just a few weeks ago I received this promotional kid package in the mail (you know those ones with all those little sales flyers compiled into one mailing that try to sell you kids books, pictures, checks, etc.) Well, I fell for one of the promotions... you remember Highlights magazine? We used to get them when I was a kid and loved finding all the hidden pictures and doing the activities in them. My first thought was, my kids are too little for this right now, but then I noticed they have a brand new magazine just for toddlers... High Five! So, I had to order it for Paige, our three year old. She recently got her first issues and we had lots of fun finding all the hidden pictures and reading the short stories. If you haven't seen this and you have toddlers, you have to get a subscription. I think this weekend we just might make the chocolate dipped banana pops they have in the October issue... YUM!

  1. Hooray! Potty training is the worst, but when it is over, life is GOOD. You guys are so cute!

    I remember good old Highlights. I might have to look into High 5, thanks for the heads up. There are few things in the world more exciting for a kid than getting mail.

    Lovin' the blog so far!
