Mommy triumphs and trials

Well life with two babies is obviously hectic and crazy at times, and so it has been months since my last update. For this I apologize. I can probably guarantee however that in the coming months my posts will become a regular activity for me. Not only are the cold months coming where there is significantly less to do, but we also recently purchased an iMac that is beautiful! And in the basement which is not near the babies' room so I don't feel bad typing on it while they are sleeping. My computer is in our bedroom and I pretty much avoid going upstairs whenever the girls are asleep, and the only time I am able to even get on the computer is during nap time or bedtime, so blogging has become a difficult task. But now my problems are solved! I again my place to vent my mommy triumphs and trials.
One big triumph in our household today was potty-training!!! Ok, I say triumph when really it was like a small step in the right direction, but I will take it! My little Nuggies, at only 20 months old, decided to go pee pee in the potty! Where as my Mack refuses to go on a regular basis. And what do you do when your kid just truly DOES NOT CARE? She has full control and knows exactly when she needs to go. She just choses not to. Unless of course you are in the middle of a playground, no bathrooms around and she has the option to pull her diaper off and squat in the grass. Then she LOVES to go potty! Go figure.
We are trying to make the most of our quickly ending summer and made some finger paint out of cornstarch, water, and food coloring and played in the splash pool. The girls were a mess but they had fun and that's what counts. Then my neighbor VERY generously invited us over for dinner, so it made my evening QUITE easy once we got home. Baths, stories, prayers, then bed! I love these kind of nights.
