Yay for little triumphs

Life is so good right now. I always have mixed emotions in declaring that to myself because I worry what is right on the heels of all this peace and contentment! But I can't be ungrateful to the Lord for what I have so I just have to say it anyway. LIFE IS GOOD! I am completely enjoying this stage of my kid's lives. I can say that despite the fact that we are potty training Ellie. I say about a million times a day that I HATE POTTY TRAINING! But in all actuality Ellie is doing really well.

She will have accidents here and there but she goes in and gets new clothes and puts her dirty ones in the hamper by herself so my work load is reduced. I mean really! No major life struggles there. Plus it is so cute when she has a triumph. Usually she is so-so about the latest deposit until I start jumping around like a maniac cheering. Then she gets the cutest grin on her face. For the first few days, whenever she had a success we had to call and tell daddy. So now if I put the phone up to her ear when Justin calls, she immediately, with an air of boredom, says "Ellie go potty." I guess that is now the new standard of what to say to your dad on the phone. Do I have to say that when I talk to my dad on the phone? Because I'm pretty sure his excitement of my ability to use the potty has long since past.

It's potty training a love-hate relationship? Good to save money on diapers but hard with many other things? I've only done it once but soon Bree will starting that adventure! We've had to start locking the doors to the bathrooms because she likes the potty way too much:)

BTW-Are you expecting?? I'll have to have Ry ask Trev
