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.

Thanks for the Help

We're getting there

It started off here. We had to clean that stupid little thing out after every time he had a potty encounter. WHICH because he was so excited about it and it was so new, happened about every 15-20 minutes. AND I can't forget that because he would get a treat after he went potty he would only tinkle a little bit first, get a treat, and then 2 minutes later tinkle a bit more for another treat, and then rinse and repeat for an endless treat experience. Mommy eventually wised up and that sort of stopped happening.
Now we have graduated to the big toilet!! Yay no more cleaning his poo bucket! BUT now he likes to use the toilet paper. He'll usually get a little piece of TP, blow his nose with it and then wipe himself....**long pause** We take recycling pretty serious around here. I do have this ominous feeling that once he discovers that he needs more than 1 square of toilet paper that his intake of said item will exponentially increase. I thought potty training was supposed to be cheaper?? Less demanding?? Easy to do?? How long is this going to take?!?!
Enjoy the pictures. Who doesn't want to see someone sitting on a toilet! This is prime imagery here.

Bryan was sitting next to me as I was reading it and we were both busting up laughing at the pictures and captions. You do a great job in capturing the perfect pictures at the perfect time. It was hilarious!

The boys noticed right away the rock star equipment in the back ground..... which makes potty training much more fun!! you can play a little tune while you do your business : )

I like how Ethan is just standing there looking on.... wondering what the heck is going on. I love it
