Good morning, dear Christmas family! How is everyone doing? I'm well. I got about 5 hours of sleep - not total, but I laid down a little after 12 and got up around 5, but I know I didn't sleep that totally!

EA walked into my room crying and crawled up into my bed around 2 and has been there since, then DS woke up at 5 and here we are! I was hoping he would go back to sleep, but he was ready to get up for the day.

As for EA, my daughter, she has had a big week since Easter and I am so proud of her. I haven't talked about it, but will now. Some of you will think my DH and I'm crazy and if you want to, that's okay. Every parent does things differently. My inlaws even think we're crazy.

We've been potty training her since she's been 18 months because she's been interested. She a lot of times wouldn't have an accident at home anymore, even at night. At daycare though, that was a different story. This past week, since she's 2 1/2, at daycare and at home, she has been starting to wear "big girl pants" and hasn't been having accidents. The key was to the "round #2 on the potty. Haha - she finally did it! She was scared to do it for some reason, but she finally did it. She loves going on the potty now. I'm so proud of her.

Her's the downside though - in the same week, (where the glares may come in), we had already planned to take her pacifier, her "binky" and she was going to put in her basket for the Easter bunny. Other parents gave me this idea. I thought at 2 1/2 this wasn't a big deal at all. She was so attached that she would take it everywhere. She would even take my son's out of his mouth. We've actually taken my son's, except at night and he hardly ever uses his.

She now for the past week for a couple of the nights hasn't slept through all night, in her own bed. Grrr....we had to eventually take it sometime. I didn't want to wait to long. I guess what I am trying to do is convience myself that this is just an adjustment period, right?

Sorry this was such a long post.

Hope everyone has great day. I always write long post like this when no one is logged on and when I am dead tired!!!

Thanks, Shellie! I appreciate it!

I can't remember how old I was, but I gave mine to the Easter bunny as well, but I don't remember because my mom told me about it. I think if this work, maybe we will try as Easter. I think she is going to be like me and love Christmas. She LOVES Santa and talks about him all the time - still everyday. If I am on here, she wants to see: SANTA! She doesn't even ask for the pacifier. She says she is big and doesn't need it, so I think she is just adjusting (I hope!)

My DH parents made him and his sister throws theres into the back of the garbage truck - I think that is horrible, but that is just me. I wouldn't make her go to that extreme.

Just jumping in here to wish you a great day!
The sun is shining today.
Im going to visit a friend of mine.

But, first we are going to the ER with the little one
At 1 o'clock.
He cut himself on glass, so we have to go in and take it out.
(He wont let med do it)
And it's my fault who left the broken mirror in the hall when cleaning up
Just for a short time, but he had to touch it. Like kids do.
And I should have known that

Well, have a great day, wherever you are!

Have fun visiting your friend today, Solice and have a great day!

Hope your little guy feels better. Don't feel bad. Those things happen - in a split second. As you said, especially the little ones, they explore and need to touch EVERYTHING. You're a great mom!

Well that could be a idea you could start now and say come christmas you gonna give santa your dummy for toys might work. give her a bit of time to adjust to it.
AYE sure was a nice way to get rid of dh,s dummy think it was a bit much. bet the parents had some crying to listen to. as i said you do it your way THEY ARE YOUR KIDS.
