Rub a Dub-Dub….

Three boys in a tub!

and one on the potty!

boys 002

He’s clapping for himself and that’s marker on his arm! He is not potty trained by a long shot, but we are slowly working on it. He won’t use the little frog potty we have, only the big potty! Curly told me he had to go potty yesterday and Baby Boy said “No, me potty” and ran and sat down and immediately pooped on the potty! He’s pooped twice on the potty in the past couple of days and once on the carpet! However the pee thing is just a little everywhere! A little in the potty, a little on the rug and well  plenty in a diaper or pull up! I tried buying the pull ups  where he liked the design and they say ‘cool when wet’, but he does not care about that. Any ideas? I know I probably just need to let him stay naked for awhile, but……. well I’m sure he’ll get trained sooner or later!

Well my not so little girl is getting older everyday! She went to the Daddy & Me dance this weekend for Girl Scouts, she wore her new tennis shoes  with an old dress. The theme was Masquerade, hence the mask!  She is letting her hair get really long and does NOT want to cut it! Isn’t she beautiful?

What's He Really Thinking? by Paula Rinehart

Well I guess Paula's been busy, I know I needed to come write my review of this book I read a little while ago, and then I was looking at Bloom Book Club and their new book for spring, well it's by Paula Rinehart and I was thinking I heard that name before and then five minutes later I decided to get this review written and I realize she wrote this book!
What's He Really Thinking?: 
How to Be a Relational Genius with the Man in Your Life
by Paula RinehartWhat's He Really Thinking?: How to Be a Relational Genius with the Man in Your Life

I thought this book was very insightful into the minds of men in general, sometimes I feel like my man is a special case and all the rules don't apply to him (does everyone think this?) There were lots of wonderful insights, things that were easy to relate to and plenty to make me smile. I love how she talked about our influence on men, and she gave many useful examples of how to talk with the men in our lives, while I mainly thought about my hubby while reading this, you could take much of this and apply it to a son, dad, brother or any other man. If you are having trouble understanding your man or just want to get a bit more insight on them then it might be worth it for you to check it out! This book won't solve all your problems but it is nonetheless interesting and helpful!I would give it 4 out of 5 stars.
This book was given to me to review by BookSneeze! Check them out!

Friday Fragments

Mommy's Idea

- I got a night off from all 4 of my kids this week - thank you mom & dad

-I desperately need a bathing suit so I can swim w/my kids (not in my clothes)

- I stopped drinking soda 2 weeks ago now- hooray for me!

- Spring break is almost over & I'm not ready for that, where did the time go??

- I started working out again yesterday, does that count ? We've moved closer to the Y that my kids love the play area, the one by my old house Baby Boy would just scream when I left him, this one he runs to go play!

-I bought some cool wall stick ons at the dollar tree yesterday, if I had my camera handy I'd show you a picture!

It's finally spring break! I'm so happy to have the kids out of school for the week & not have to worry about all the back & forth and just try & settle into this apartment. The weather has been great lately so we expect to be able to swim & maybe head to the beach one day! Hopefully I'll get some pictures this week! Tata for now!

Good Friday

And it's a good Friday indeed! My hubby was telling Sissy before school today all about the story of Jesus being sent to the cross and why it happened. He is a much better story teller than I. I was so proud of him for his sincerity and taking the time out in the morning to do this and I was proud of my daughter who had tears in her eyes.
