April 2, 2006

WOW! Can you believe it's already April? We've had a long week. It was spring break here. Spring Break hasn't really affected us since Troy and I were in school, so it was a little wierd. We told the kids we would take them to the zoo on Monday, but as we neared the exit, Troy and I were trying to come up with excuses to go elsewhere. It took us 20 minutes JUST to get off of the exit, so, in that 20 minutes, we talked the kids into going to Costco where we would buy them hot dogs instead and then go to a park. They bought it, and we were off. We are used to being able to go anywhere without a crowd on a Monday or Tuesday (Troy's days off), so we were thrown off a bit by Spring Break.

Wednesday I was at a friends helping her get started scrapbooking, and Troy called me. He told me that Kristin (almost 23 months) said she needed to go potty, so humoring her, Troy took her diaper off, and she proceeded to poop in her little potty! So, I knew she was ready to potty train. So, Thursday we were homebound. She sat on her potty while I gave her drink after drink after drink. Friday, she decided to scream all morning, once she told me her ear hurt, I took her to the doctor. Yep, ear infection. After the doctor we went to the park(cause it was nice and I had promised the boys before I knew Kristin was sick) and then off to the pharmacy to pick up her perscription. NO ACCIDENTS up until that point! Every day has gotten better, and Troy and I even returned an unopened box of diapers to Costco yesterday! WOO HOO! It is now 5:47 pm on Sunday, and so far NO ACCIDENTS today! She even woke up from her nap to go potty! I love it! It's great! The boys beg her to go potty so they can have candy!

We watched conference today. That's all that's been happening! The boys go back to school tomorrow, and Kenny, Cherice, Daxton, and Kinlee come on Wednesday. My boys have a countdown and have made a list of things they want to do with includes: bowling, seeing Ice Age2, going to the Children's Museum, Zoo, and Papa's Pizza. It should be a packed weekend! I can't wait! Send us an email and let us know what's happening in your life!
