The last weekend of June the boys had their first ever sleep over. They went to Gamma and Papa’s cabin. I think this was hardest on mommy. They didn’t miss me one bit, or if they did they didn’t show it at all. It went really well for them and the grandparents, well as long as you don’t count getting up at 5 am and then thinking you don’t need a nap because there is just so much to do!
It went so well they are doing it again this weekend!
We first tried potty training over a long weekend back in February. It was a complete disaster and the boys were frustrated, so we went back to diapers with plans to potty train in the summer. We had a couple of trips planned and were going to wait until the middle of August before worrying about it.
Well Ezra just up and decided he was done with diapers and wanted undies this weekend. He even went to church and did just fine. He had one accident Sunday night, but other than that he did great.
We had a great vacation, and time with family in Colorado, but the boys always love coming home. I think they feel like they have to play with everything and re-connect with toys, animals and unwind.
In less than 30 minutes our house went from super clean and in order to this:
Two trikes, a scooter, lawn chairs, a slide, table from the playroom, all 4 chairs from the playroom, thomas trains, 2 different puzzles, drums, a guitar, 2 back packs, 3 stuffed animals and various plastic fruit items. All spread out across the living room in less than 30 minutes.
Ezra was so excited to see his trike that he got stuck on the play table, and dragged it across the house like a trailer. Nothing was gonna stop him.
