Yesterday was a day of victory in potty training. Son-W1 was able to stay dry a lot in between potty trips. He didn’t resist me in having him sit on the potty, and on his own he told me that he had to go potty. He then sat down and did a #2. He asked, “Mommy, are you really proud of me?” I told him, “YES!!!” He got a lollipop over that one.
I haven’t been able to blog as much as I’d like because we have been too busy. It’s hard to keep up with everything! Yesterday, the kids and I spent a day at a water park with friends. It was great fun! We left at 8:30 a.m. and returned at 3:30 p.m. I loved having a day to relax with the guys in a not too stressful environment. Plus, the water was very refreshing and so much fun! I had fun running through the water with our boys. After our day, Will told daddy that he had fun playing in the “watermelon.” He also kept singing “Deep & Wide,” but instead of singing, “There’s a fountain flowing deep and wide,” he insists on singing, “There’s a mountain flowing deep and wide.” We have corrected him numerous times, but he thinks he knows best.
This morning, Will said, “We like our baby.” The boys were having fun playing with Luke. Now that Luke is crawling, the boys are interacting more with him. He’s a fun “toy” to them.
The other day, Jonathan shared his lunch cookies with the boys. Jonathan said, “That’s a big cookie.” Will ate a bite and then said, “Now, it’s a little, tiny cookie.”
Yesterday as I was trying to get the boys out the door on time for the park, I told Will to climb into his car seat and to put his shoulder straps on. Will said, “Mommy, I am frustrated with you.” (He didn’t like me telling him to hurry.) You never know what they are going to come up with.
