EXCITED is an understatement!
What we refer to as the longest semester E-V-E-R is finally over! To the shock and awe of my professors and I!
So what has been going on while I was out of “blogland”?
Aubree is 100% potty trained! 3 months shy of her 3rd birthday! I was really strict with the others. They had to be potty dependant by 2 tops. That was about 4 kids ago! So I rejoice when the day comes. And let me tell you I had VERY little to do with it. I think it was really Emily’s mom Brenda who gave her the hint while we were staying with them. Any-hoo! She is completely “trained” as she tells me, she’s trained and I’m a big girl! I don’t know how I feel about that!
She even sleeps through the night with out pull ups! This is VERY exciting since the thing my husband despises hearing most is…”hunny can you bring home some pampers?” He almost DIES every time at the sound of that! You would think with 7 kids that wouldn’t be such a shock?!
“Potty Mouth” is reading very well… except for that one incident this week, when he thought the “H” in ”HIT” made a “SH” you do the phonics of what that sounds like. Imagine the look on my face as I am cooking and he is on a stool in the middle of the kitchen repeating that over and over!
Since his dad and I don’t curse or let them watch stuff that does,I’m pretty sure, (one eye squinted) he didn’t know what he was saying. The true innocence in his voice as he is fustrated and saying this made me giggle hysterically. I eventually corrected him after I regained my composure with the correct sound “H” makes. And lovingly told him that what he was saying, is not a “real” word (in his world, says me!) he uses so don’t say that. He looked at me puzzled and agreed.
My kids always deliver and give me something to blog about!!!*some of these images were pulled from google image.
