We had some visitors over and of course A and E were bouncing off the walls. Head butting their legs, jumping on their back and freaking out. So I chucked them both in the kitchen and told them, "You are out of control." Angrily A turns to me, hands on his hips and snaps, "No Mom! YOU are out of control!"

A comes up to me and tells me very officially, "Mom, I'm smarter than you. I'm not smarter than Dad, but I am smarter than you."

A and E were wrestling today and it was A's day. He was doing really good keeping his little brother subdued, although E put up a pretty good fight. Once they were finished, Daddy and I told E he did a really good job! He looked over at Daddy M angrily from the floor and said, "No, I din not!!" he flailed his arms on the ground and continued, "He's still alive!"

E and A were playing T-ball today with A's new gear. I of course laid down the rules. No hitting anyone with the bat. No swinging at the ball until every body and body part is clear. Simple enough. Not 5 minutes into it, I hear a blood curdling scream from A. E runs inside, eyes big, and says, "I din'n know what I was doing!" Big brother had a pretty good goose egg on his head.

Happy Dance!

Ayden actually went potty in the toilet for the first time!!!


Do you know what this means?! This means no more $40 every two weeks for his diapers! This means no more changing his sick nasty poos. This means that he can go to pre-school!!!! I feel so liberated!!! 

Now the only trick is to KEEP him going potty in the toilet. I should probably simmer down until he's actually potty trained or its going to be really depressing when he decides that he's bored of the candy and sticker awards he gets and wants his bum changed again by me.

BUT for now... Ayden and I are going to do the HAPPY POTTY DANCE!!!!! {run around the living room and jumping up and down.}

Time to break out the really cool bandaids as a reward. Although stickers do have the same effect.... It is a great feeling isn't it. He may have a few set backs but.... that's okay. You are on your way to total freedom from poopy diapers from a 2 year old.
