The monthly letters are continuing into the 3rd year. I will continue each month, but I must warn you on the topic this month. If you don’t want to read about potty training in descriptive (yet relatively clean) language, you might want to skip this post. If you want to feel the pain (or laugh at us), read on.

If you are not already aware, I don’t like beer. I could be more precise with reasoning, but it doesn’t change that fact.
However, I married a brewer. A pretty good brewer (according to the public and actual critics). So whe he opens his brewery, I would like to have a beer at his opening (without the “eww” face). To do this, I had to find the gateway into craft brewing. For me, it was Woodchuck Hard cider, spring release. It tastes like a pancake in a bottle.
I am still working on finding a beer I can drink with regularity… but I have cider to keep me entertained on the journey.
Pinterest (aka, my internet addiction) was the inspiration of a play date today. We introduced the kids to the term “hypothesis” (can’t hurt to start early, right?)
Admittedly, the “experiment” was more – look and see what this does. But the scientists were 3, so we let it slide a bit. We did these “experiments”…
- One that I didn’t know about at all, that was pretty cool was the color symphony in milk. Here is that picture.
The last month of age 2 started with a visit from Grandma and Grandpa. They were able to give you all the things that Grandparents do – they hugged, spoiled and loved you… and you ate it up. Thankfully you are over the shy phase and were only too happy to take in all the grand parents had to give.
Since your last birthday you’ve been having tea parties with your toys. This month you got to join Mommy for a real tea party. You were really excited at the idea of it, but when it came time to actually sit with adults, you found other things to do.
Your desire to have a birthday got stronger. We’ve been having a countdown of Continue reading
(OK, so timeliness isn’t my strong suit lately. You will forgive me. Look at that cool button that let’s you publish in the past… I think we will use that today….)
This month you spent reinforcing to us that you loved Halloween. A small reason could be that you still had candy at the end of the month from your huge bounty on Halloween evening. This was proven by you still shouting “Happy Halloween” several weeks later. You made Mommy proud.
This month you have had great progress in potty training. You are spending several days a week at school without a diaper (except nap time). We are thrilled with this, but because you have this progress in the forefront of your mind and because you like to use these terms with great frequency. You love to talk about poop. All the time. Sometimes Pee is fun to talk about, but mainly poop. Not that you will do that for us at home on the potty. Ever. But apparently you do at school and all your friends are doing it (go peer pressure!) it is a topic to discuss Continue reading
I’ve logged 186 out of 200 volunteer hours.
I cleared the closet of sellable items and began a big pile of donations. Not quite ½ my wardrobe yet, but well on the way.
New things – I will have to average to count for “at least one per week” – some of these were the same day or week, and had one or two weeks with nothing. Since I am the one keeping score, I think it counts. Continue reading
Don’t think I’ve forgotten about your monthly update on what is going on, or think that nothing much happened. In fact, we have been so busy that I haven’t had time. Continue reading
