kid crazy

This is just a tidbit about my nutty kiddos. PLEASE, please laugh as hard as I do at them.

#1. We have a potty predicament. Some of you may remember the potty training attempt I made with Elias back in February. Seriously, totally successful but I ended up quitting and going back to diapers because running him up and down the stairs made me have major contractions when I was pregnant with Benj.


I was inspired by a friend to let my kids start trying the potty again, even though I felt very little pressure for them to be potty trained yet. Imagine my surprise when within like two seconds Glory pees on the potty! WHAT?! The rest of that day, she kept saying, "Mommy! peepee!" or "Mommy! Poopoo!" and I'd pull out the potty and she'd just go. No frills. No drama. Just going potty. When she finishes she asks for a treat like it's not big deal.

So, three days later and um.... she hasn't had a wet or poopy diaper since. She thinks she's potty trained! Who is she?! Before you start thinking I'm bragging or showing off, I'll equal it out for you: Everytime Glory goes potty, Elias tries too. Not once in three days. Oops, I should've ran with it in February. (don't worry we give him treats too)

#2. My kids are learning about creation right now. Super sweet.
So something I say a few times a day is:
"Tell me about all the things God made!!!!"
(and Elias has a strict routine of his list)
how do I even go on to adam & eve when God created waffles?

#3. Another thing we're working on is middle names.
Elias is really sweet on his sister and we've often heard him call her "gooeyana"
and lately he's been telling us "gooeyana is eloise!". To help him understand, we started explaining middle names so I've been hearing this a lot:
"Daddy Powell Connnnolllllllolll"
"Mommy is Powell?"
and "I'm a connolllolll boy!"
(ebug's middle name is Powell)

and now, just some silly pictures.
