I wasn't sure this time would ever come......

It has been way to long since i've made a post in here. We've had a few god things happen in our family in the last week.

The first is Shane is officially on his way to being totally potty-trained. He has been in underwear exclusively for the last 6 days now-WOO HOO!!! He has had such a struggle with this, probably more stress for me than him but I really wanted this for him and it seemed like a great time for it, he is doing so well. No major accidents and has also been dry two out of three nights that we've been trying night time training as well. He has been to school 2 of the days now as well and no problems with it there either which was my main worry. I don't have any delusions about there being no accidents or set-backs but we've made SUPER BIG strides in this at our house. GO SHANE!!!

The other news is MOM is going back to work! Thats right-its back to my old stompimg grounds. Its only part time but the money is very needd around here and I think it will be good for all of us. Mom needs the break out of the house and the kids need a chance to spend time with others. Its 12:30pm-4:00pm M-F so not too long each day but just enough. I start next week so we'll see how it goes.

Hmmm...what else?

Both of the boys have colds which I am oping on on track to getting better and mom and dad are trying their best to fit them off. Its barely October...I sure hope this is not what the whole winter will be like this year! Think healthy thoughts right!!

I am still not totally sure what the boys Halloween costumes will be. Steve thought Shane should be a bank robber with a turtleneck, beanie and a fake money bag which I have to admit would be super cute. Maybe I should make Chase a jailbird...kinda like a before and after. Chase doesn't fit in the peacock costume I had borrowed from a friend, he's too long but this will be happy news for Auntie Adelle who thought it was a "girl thing". We'll's coming up too fast!

Hahaha...well the first week was good, until my Tues, Wed, Thurs sitter crapped out before even starting so I'll have to see what I can come up with. For now I'll work Mondays and Fridays!

Childcare sucks:(
