I am very ready for sunshine and no more rain. I haven't checked the forecast for the week though. Mainly, because I never do. I am THAT mom who sends her kids to school in shorts because it was warm on Sunday, only to find out that when I pull the van out of the garage there is snow on the ground, and typically I have forgotten their jackets too! :)
My kids are bouncing off the walls to get outside. So the last few days whenever it hasn't been pouring, even though our backyard looks like a pig pen full of water and mud, I have been letting them play outside. Of course, Creighton now has a minor cold. But whatever.
I'm over it.
I am forcing summer whether it's ready to come or not!
My children have outgrown 90% of their cold/cool weather clothing and I refuse to buy any more just to have summer finally come and them not be able to wear it ever again. So they look a little, shall I say, home-ly most of the time. Jackson's long sleeves are now three-quarter sleeves and pants are capris. Oh yes, and he is dressing himself these days, so he looks AWE-some.
Oh yeah, and we are in the mix of potty training Creighton as of TODAY. She is ready I think. She's been showing some signs for awhile now.
Today after church she put herself in big girl underwear and took off her diaper. She peed in the toilet. She got a sticker on her chart. My mom called to tell me she pooped on the potty all by herself at her house last week, so I let her put some more stickers on her chart for that. She peed one other time, and only a little leaked in her underwear before she remembered to get on the toilet. All-in-all a good first day. No accidents, but in all actuality she was only in panties for like 5 hours I think.
We'll see how this goes. I am not forcing it in the slightest but I am excited with hope that ONE day in the future I will be finished with diapers in my home...maybe forever :)
I am hoping to post my Easter pictures tomorrow...yep...only a month late.
