Out of the mouth of babes

Yesterday, on the way to school, I pulled out of our parking lot and this huge SUV came barreling down the road. I hit the brakes hard and fast. LB looked at me and said "Oh Shit." I had to turn around so he wouldn't see me laugh, and said "Oh no!" He then changed his phrasing to the G rated version. I've really got to clean up my mouth on the road.

He did it!

He pooped on the potty that is. Well it was once and I forced him to sit as he stood there and squeezed his cheeks so hard that poop just fell on the floor. Little Bear was not happy about the prospect of sitting to poop. I dare say that it freaked him out a bit. He let out a little bit and was excited about flushing it down, so we did. Then he decided himself, that it wasn't so scary, parked himself on his "little potty" and finished up. Very exciting indeed. I was hoping for a repeat performance yesterday. Nope. I brought home 2 pairs of dirty undies and then he pooped again when we got home. I was hoping again today. But as we were walking out the door to go to school, I got another present. At least he no longer sits down in it and it's easier to clean up. Keep your fingers crossed for me that he gets over his fear soon!

Grandpa's visit

My dad came to visit this past weekend. This is the first time LB has differentiated between his grandfather's and refered to my dad as Grandpa, instead of calling him and every man of a certain age Poppa. It was so sweet to hear LB call my dad Grandpa. They had a lovely time reading books, going to the playground, visiting a nature center, and going out for lunch. BB was all smiles for Grandpa. Last visit, she was ill and screamed and cried almost the entire time Dad and L. were here.
LB got to touch his first lizard!
LB's new favorite book, Green Eggs And Ham.
Baby Bear was very talkative with her grandpa!
We're so glad Grandpa came to visit! We can't wait to see you again soon.

She better not get used to this!

Art Gallery

How do you hide a scrapped up wall? I suppose you could paint it, but not in my household. No instead the wall in question becomes an artist's gallery. I should charge admission!

Happy Valentine's Day

As you can see from the pictures, the aftermath from all the sugar has LB in a state tonight. BB was having a grand ole time reading her Valentine's cards. I hope everyone else has had a lovely day/evening. Mike and I exchanged gifts a few weeks ago. We bought a brand new hot water heater. Nothing quite says love like a hot shower on a cold day!

Sick again...

We've had that lovely stomach bug running rampant through our home. It started last Thursday night with little girl, ran over my boy, and re-hit my baby yesterday. I haven't worked a full week of work in I don't know how long. I'm averaging about a 3 to 4 day work week. On a good note, since the tubes were put in, Baby Bear is sleeping through the night again! Hallejuah! Now, I can't sleep, because I am so used to getting up every 2 to 3 hours. Go figure! Of course with all the vomit, Mike is out of town. He'll be home Friday. Keep your fingers crossed that I can work next week!
