The week of the dreaded potty training has come to an end. But let me tell ya, we're still working on it and still a little wounded from last week's casualties. Okay, it wasn't that bad.... But it also wasn't an easy transition by any means. The day before we started my "fully committed" round of potty training, Scarlett decided to make sure I knew the kind of trouble I was in for. She had her darling, mellow and sweet friend over. I always look forward to their play dates. These two get along perfectly and this particular friend handles Scarlett's pistol ways with grace. I went in to check on them and their "house" playing when I heard silent giggles. I opened to door to find our sweet friend painted completely red... "How did you get so red?!" I looked over at a guilty Scarlett holding a tube of my bright red lipstick with a few markings on her hands and face. Then I glanced at the red spots on the carpet, the mural on the wall and door, markings on some toys and just as I was about to lose it and get my crazy face on.... I remembered that I wanted to keep the sweet friend/perfect play date partner and not traumatize her from ever wanting to play at the scary mom's house (let's be clear here, I love my daughter but this deed was most definitely all her). Also, I'm pretty sure she was already a little traumatized from being ordered to hold still while Scarlett painted. My sister asked if I got any pics because, in case you haven't noticed, I love documenting inappropriate moments of my kids. This time, I failed. Anyways, you can imagine the way we kicked off "potty training week".... I guess in a way she prepared me. Her accidents were a much easier clean-up. And I'm happy to report, there wasn't too many of them!
In other news, it's summer, my friends! We are 100% ready for this. We spent all of yesterday in swim suits, went to a splash pad, played with our water table and ate all different fruits out in the sun. We are paying for it with a little sun burn, but I think it was worth the price. Mama will do better with extra strong sunblock next time. ;)
Back to the fruit. Welles actually sucked on the oranges and bit off a couple chunks! No big deal, right? Wrong! This is big for our purreed food only little eater. He usually refuses solids, so this mom was pretty proud. Also, isn't he looking big? They both are... I love these two summer lovin' babies!
