We are diaper free, not paci free

Small steps people.

River is potty trained! We just went to big kid underwear and said this is how it's going to be. And it worked, which was weird. But cool.

I am unprepared to suffer the consequences of doing the same thing with the paci. It's much louder than some wet or dirty underwear. I am not a fan of loud. At all.

Bigs are back in school and happy. Fifth and third grade. Whoa.

I go back in about a week for the last year of classroom work. After that it's just rotations. So exciting!

Funny story:

Mike gets pulled over with the kids in the car. He may have been going too fast. Shocking, I know.


Cop is asking all of the usual stuff and Meadow pipes up from the back: Daddy, are you going to jail again?

[only funny because she didn't do it to me]

Cop says aggressively: Why would she say that sir? Is there something you need to tell me?

Mike is stuck because, hello, she's a kid and who knows why she said it?! Obviously not based on anything real. She's a kid. They say STUPID stuff. All the time.

Cop came back and gave Mike a warning. Maybe because he was rude after Meadow said that. Who knows.

Either way, funny story.

that JUST happened

River: Mom! [shoves hand in face] Smell my hand. It smells like pretzels and juice. It's not stinky. Smell it. SMELL IT!!!!!

Me: Thanks buddy. [Feigns sniffing] Yes, I smell pretzels.

River: [Walking off] It smells good. Yum!

not abandoning the blog

It's been a while, I know.

I haven't felt inspired to write anything lately. Combination of busy and, well, little inspiration I guess.

I have purchased a new camera card - so pictures should follow at some point. Although we went camping this weekend and I totally forgot to bring the camera. I'm thoughtful like that.

Anyway, more soon:)
