Things I Wish My Kids Would Figure Out

Yep, we're still on the potty train. :)

I wish they would figure out:

*One does not need to fully disrobe each time the bladder is emptied into the toilet. (Jake) Nor do you need a new pair of underpants each time you go potty.
*And on the other extreme....It would be a good idea to pull your pants down more than three inches so that when you do go potty, you don't soak your clothes and spill the contents of your bladder all over the floor. (Kate)
*Underpants are not a good substitute for wiping with toilet paper
*When one DOES remember to wipe with toilet paper, the paper does not belong in the trash can. Flush it!
*If you are a boy, it IS possible to pee on your head. (Jake has not done this, and I am not allowed to say which of our boys actually DID do this.)
Pictures from a trip to the park yesterday

Wading into the water

Nothing more fun on a summer day than playing in a creek

Throwing rocks in the water

Making a train on the slide

Static electricity from the slide

Katie-bug continues to do very well

I'm glad we aren't the only ones experiencing potty issues. I still am struggling with getting Josie to go #2 in the potty. She absolutely refuses to do anything but tinkle in the potty. I'm tired of pull-ups.

Adorable pictures. What's up with this MI weather? I want summer back!!!

Happy 4th of July!!

Those sweet faces sure make up for the potty train derailment, right?

Lucy is STILL "working" on being trained also. Yesterday at WM as I was buying MORE diapers I told her right then and there, "Look I will just give YOU $20 if you start going on the potty..??" No go. $20 doesn't mean any more to her than $.20!
