if you couldn't tell.....
i'm a bit excited.
because we are indeed taking a week-long family vacation this summer!
it was all very touch and go there for awhile.
we thought we would just do a couple of long weekend trips close to home,
because of Jon's summer session, etc.
but as of today, we are officially going to our favorite place for a whole week, and with some of our favorite people, nonetheless!
|there will be lots of this going on with these two|
want to know the wierdest part of it all?
i'm actually super excited to start to plan the menu and see how low i can get our grocery budget (i know, it's a sickness, i think). last year, my family went to the beach (5 families/12 people--5 of which are good-eating men) and each family only spent around 80 dollars on groceries for the week!
our house is 700 feet from the beach, has a private pool, hot tub, and separate rooms for the kiddos!
i am so looking forward to a relaxing, calm, cool, and collected week away with our family (now, let's just pray jon's work doesn't rev up just in time for him to not be able to go---eeek!)
on another milestone note:
i hate to put this in writing, because i know it will jinx it, but.....
(ok, or at least close to it with the numero uno~)
i started with undies only on friday at 4:00pm and did it all the time we were home this weekend.
she only peed on the floor twice and all of the rest of the times were successful (she even pooed once!).
i don't know about you, but that's a huge milestone for me that i have been dreading to teach since day 1.
we'll keep trucking along with it and let you know how it's going.
there's been lots of reading on the pot,
elmo's potty time watching,
and smiley face-drawing.
(i give her a small one for pee and a big one for poo. she also gets a chocolate chip!)
any words of wisdom from you mommies who have potty training down to an art? i'd love to hear your suggestions!
