Today my #1 son lost his first tooth. He is so big already! I remember how fun he was when he was a baby. He was so snuggly and he is in school and loosing teeth. Wow, time is a flyin'.

My baby boy is also doing some marvelous things. He is using the potty, and how. He smacks the front of his diaper and yells PEE!! Then runs to me and of course he has already gone in his diaper, but he loves to sit on the toilet and pee just a little more. He has kept his diaper dry for a whole day last Sunday and that was so exciting, but he is my youngest and it is hard to see him grow up.

Today was a great day!!

After several days of unhappy children, I finally had a good day with them. I am sure they are testing their boundaries with me because of my recent decision to try to yell less, if at all. It is amazing how quickly they are adapting to it. My husband didn't even know I was doing it, (he still doesn't) but I have seen him changing as well. Reasoning with them and explaining WHY we want them to do certain things. It's a good step in the right direction. I also think they are a little burnt out with school. I remember feeling that way when I was younger. So, today after they both finished the last page of homework we made videos of silly things. Not documenting anything, but just silly funny things they wanted to do. We talked about things they liked and we sang songs and made the stuffed animals dance to our songs. It was really fun and they had a great day. Right now they are playing happily and are in the "Glow Club" they created with those spin around light up toys we got from the Disney clearance isle last year.
