Blog #2

So...Boston has a Serious problem with going #2. I don't get it. I would think that kids WOULdN't like #2 in their diaper...but Boston does good in his BigBoys all day then when he needs to go #2 he asks for a diaper. So from another room I hear his little feet pitter pattering quickly (which is becoming know as the poo poo dance around here), so I yell for Boston to come and I take his pants off and send him to his potty. And this is what I get:

Apparently I need to be more clear. Not go TO the potty, go ON the potty. But really the kid would rather go next to the potty (and pick it up and put it in there by hand), in a diaper... Anything but #2 in the potty!

Potty training is obviously consuming my life but in other news...
Elliott is finally enjoying reading. He discovered a new book series that he really loves. Really, I can't stop him from reading sometimes!

Diary of a Wimpy Kid!

"Did you just take a picture of me?!"

He is still adjusting to the new school. Sunday nights are means he has to start back to school and there are usually a few tears involved. I get it, I hated switching schools and i never WANTED to do it to him, but I think it's making a difference for the better already. I'm hoping that once we get him involved in more extracurricular activities that will give him more to look forward to on weekdays instead of just dreading school. This week he will have Cub Scout Day Camp! Maybe that will help take his mind off school.
This week Elliott will be going to scouts 4 days, so maybe I will finally snap a shot of him in uniform--look for it!

BigBoys, a Book, and a Bug!

So I have decided to take over my own blog finally...or just finally start taking advantage of it. I figured if I can wake up at 5:30 in the morning and go running three days a week, then I can throw a picture and a few words on my blog at least once a week...and with the two rascals we're raising there really isn't a lack of things to blog about.
Lately my focus is on potty training. I don't think it's only because he has turned the magical age of three that it suddenly bothers me so much, I think it's crazy that he is totally capable and just "doesn't want to"--he tells me this all the time. Well, a little taste of the real world, you have to do things you don't want to...for example, I HAVE to change dirty diapers EVERY day. So I am trying to be more consistent lately. Yesterday Boston left a little skid mark (that was plenty smelly) in his diaper, but never went #2. He says he just sucked it back in. And he still hasn't gone. So he put on some Buzz Lightyear unders (his BigBoys) and and out we went. And back we came with no accidents. Score!...not so fast... I finish eating and look over at this

YEP! This is the bench I was sitting on...and his BigBoys and shorts--Soaked! Well, I will take my victories. He did put the unders on willingly and he lasted til we got home. Better luck tomorrow.

Boston's favorite thing every night is reading his Elmo book. It an eye spy and I love that it has a dental page. It is warming him up to the fact that I will clean his teeth some day...probably soon-- he's already 3!

That's you mommy!

Last thing! As I was setting up for a patient today I noticed this:

Yep--it's a bug in a prophy angle.... Good thing I was paying attention. Crazy! I couldn't show the front desk girl, she would never let me polish her teeth ever again. Haha!

Latest Photo Shoot

My wonderful sister-in-law took these photos at a shoot to take family photos for our mother-in-law. I must have had some ulterior motives, because I'm sure I love these even more than she did!

This one I can't wait to blow up and hang in our new house (whenever that day comes).

These of Elliott turned out great! Now I'm not putting pictures of Elliott up because I favor him.... he's just the only one who would sit still long enough for a close up! (But if he asks, I love him more!)

And of course: our little family!
