Snug it off

I am tired just looking at these pictures. They are the last of our trip to Canada. The weather was just so beautiful that you couldn't help play in the backyard. The kids and Brian were doing the playing, I just sat back and watched from in the fresh cool grass! Ah, I miss it already!
Yes, running with sharp gardening tools, awesome parenting I know!

So we are home and it is so good to be back. I have ment to blog faster but things have just come up. FOR EXAMPLE...
The big event of the week/Month/Year has come along - Not the baby, the other one.
Potty Training.
My least favorite part of being a parent, the dirty work that someone has to do so that the child fits into society.
Boots is still a baby to me, so this was kinda hard. We also were doing no more blankies, shared bedroom, and big boy bed all at the same time, this week. As you can imagine - AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I Just want to scream!
No, he has done pretty well and we are on day 4, with only one small accident today. There were none yesterday and he stayed dry all night - BONUS!
I had my 36 week appointment today, after not being in since 30 weeks, and I am so happy with the progress of me and baby. I will try to get a belly shot one of these days, I am feeling nasty though, rarely do I want to be in a picture! The baby is measuring perfect, just under 6 lbs, and she is still a SHE! (Boots was a "she" until 34 weeks when he finally was a "he") This means the projects can begin and hopefully all be completed by the time baby comes, which cross your fingers isn't far away.
I am getting pretty sick of night times that consist of 4 potty breaks for me, 4 pillows(which isn't enough), 6 plus* tums, and an uncomfortable night all together. The day time is better, I am not as tired as I thought I would be, my tailbone doesn't hurt, and I am not waddling (all the time).
So like I said above, we do blankies in this house. The kids both have them and I HATE THEM. They are nasty and they were getting so attached to them in Canada that I had to do something about it. I am not all about the extra limb and breakdowns when it isn't around. So we have cut them out, they only come out of hiding when the kids are going to sleep. They have done fabulous! As an exchange, we found these radical kid snuggies at Costco the other day and had to get them, I am jeleous, I still want a snuggie.
funny, yet not so funny side note... I wax my own eyebrows and yesterday I BUTCHERED them. I swear everything was going smooth until, *tear* "ahhhhh" and a look in the mirror to find A LOT of hair missing. I am soo mad, there is not much worse than bad eyebrows that are half missing.

Good luck with the potty training and all the new changes for the little guy. I can't believe you are tackling all that so close to the end!

So that's why you didn't wanna go to the pool the other night? haha- just kidding. That sucks though- I remember one time when I was in junior high I wanted to trim my eyebrows, so I got scissors out and snipped. Yeah half of my eyebrow was gone! I tried covering it up with my bangs, but it was closer to the middle so I couldn't.
Good luck on potty training & no blankies.

yeah. I told my sister that Saturday night I woke up 7 times to pee. She was shocked. I don't think she realized how awful it is to sleep with a baby in your tummy. Have fun with the girly projects! That's the only reason I wanted a girl: so many more fun crafty projects.

Can I have some of your energy. I still have to potty train and move Rex into a big boy bed. I am just dragging my feet. Good luck on everything. Can't wait to see the little girl. Do you have a name yet?

Yay boots on potty training! SO exciting!!! Hooray for him. And double hooray for you and Bri! :)
I think we're going to follow your lead with blankies. I'm so sick of the nasty blankies. So gross.
Why did I silently wish Brian was swinging me around by my feet when I was looking at those pictures?
see you tonight!
