Staying Home

Oh the unbelieveable fun of being home with my girls. In one day you color, cut, paste, watch and laugh. I was going to take her to Gail's house but she melted me when she said, "Mommy I can't wanna go to Miss Gail's house." I asked her why and she said, " Because I wanna stay with you because I love you." So yesterday afternoon after being with me all day I guess Payton was tired of me telling her, no don't stand on your toys, you'll don't climb up there you'll don't push Haby, he's growling and I don't want him to bite don't stand up in the desk chair with wheels you're going to bust your head...that as she walked out of the room chewing on her arm, I asked her where she was going, she said to the kitchen to chew her arm so I wouldn't yell at her.

Cracked me up but at the same time made me sad to think all she thought I did all day was "yell" at her... we had fun, and she really was a good girl, I guess just the perspective of a 2 year old.

Potty Training

So Reagan is 7 weeks old and I guess it's time to concentrate on attempting to potty train Payton again. This has to be the hardest thing I've encountered as a Mom. I thought introducing solid foods was awful, battling the independence of a 2 1/2 year old who has no time to sit still and potty really tests you.
