Meet the Teacher

We met Ladybug's teachers today for Mother's Day Out.  She was very apprehensive and refused to go in, so we stopped by to see her old teacher first.  That helped a lot and she went right on in to meet everyone.  I hope this is the start of a wonderful "school" year.

Monthly Chair Photo: At 42 Months

* Ladybug didn't want to go outside for a photo until I mentioned the bubbles!

* She's beginning to color within the lines.

* She says she's not ready to go to school.  We keep talking about it, hope it's a smooth transition.

* Still pretty moody.  The 3's have been harder than the 2's.

* We've finally seen some progress with the potty!

* Buggy continues to show many signs of independence.  She'll pick out her own clothes and dress
   herself.  Pretty much wants to do everything herself.

* She's still wearing size 3T and still weighs 28 pounds.  Her height is right at 36" and shoes size 6.5.

At the Fair

We had a fun night at the North Texas State Fair.  Once the sun went down, the weather was perfect and not too hot!  Ladybug would not ride any rides even though she was exactly the right height this year!  Oh well, maybe next year.  (She also didn't want to walk most of the time either.)

Enjoy a few of my favorite photos.

Progress with the Potty!

During Bug's playdate with Abby on Sunday she watched her use the potty and so she wanted to go potty too.  Every single time...though I don't think she ever did tinkle in the potty.

Yesterday though, she went to the potty several times and told us when she needed wanted to go.  This morning, she used the potty at least 3 times before I went to work!

We lost count when we reached 6 tinkles and so I let that little ladybug pick out some panties to wear today!  I'm happy to accidents!

Wow, I'm amazed and excited.  I'm also very hopeful that this continues!

The older girls got together today for scrapbooking and the little girls had a fun playdate.  These two little ladybugs are always so cute together. 

We can't wait until next time!

Hello Mac

Look what finally arrived on my doorstep.

I'm a happy girl...

...and totally not sharing since Buggy took my ipad away from me.

Birthday Party

Happy Birthday T!  We celebrated with dinner at Villa Grande where I, of course, was designated driver.  What you don't see are the huge margaritas that were promptly sucked down before the waiter brought out Kahlua shots.

After dinner, we ate cake and ice cream.  Ladybug wanted to put the candles on her daddy's cake.  "I wanna do it, I wanna do it."  Boy, do we hear that a lot around here about everything.

Happy Birthday T!  We love you lots!

Random Thoughts

* T's out of town all week and it's hard being the "single Mom." 

* I also find myself staying up late and watching TV while laying in the bed when he's away.

* I ordered my new MacBook Pro today.  Ha, that'll teach him to leave me alone for a whole week!

* This Dell laptop that I've been using is Coco's....the left click is broken and now the r is hard to press.  It has to be 10 years old.  We look forward to smashing it with a sledgehammer next week.

* Bug's been scared of the rain today and I have no idea why.

* Yay, we got some rain at our house!

*Ladybug and I were making a grocery list today before we went to the store.  For her prayer tonight she thanked Jesus for bananas, yogurt and applesauce.

* I'm proud of Coco for working on her cakeball business.  You should really check out her new website here.  They are super delicious!  You can learn to make them too!
