Potty training = a crazy mommy!!!

Potty training in my house is a disaster.

My two year old is more than ready but way to stubborn.

She wants to wear panties so we have tried that.

She will sit on the potty for what seems like forever but rarely does anything.

Then as soon as she starts running around playing things just start flowing!

I have mopped up so many puddles that I'm about to lose my mind.

Although when she does it she starts crying and saying "yucky".

Anyone got any advice?

I'm willing to try anything at this point.

Long awaited post!

Between Internet issues and my hubby being home for 6 days I have been MIA.

I know you are all wanting to know how we spent our 6 days together.

I can't exactly tell you all that... this is a family friendly blog after all.

The day he came home we had planned for a friend to pick him up from the airport.

Little did he know I was going with her to surprise him.
I was in such a hurry to see him as you can see.

Mean while my son was at home thinking I was out running errands.

I came home and had someone tell him to help me get stuff out of the car.

He walked out acting all mad that he had to help and walked right past his dad at first.
Obviously he realized he was there and got super excited.

Next we went in the house and my little girl couldn't believe daddy was here.

That's enough for tonight look for a future post with plenty more pictures.

Recap 2 months

It's been two months and one day since the hubby left.
Today was my birthday, but great friends made it a good day.
The only thing that could have made it better would be to have my hubby home.
I got to thinking about how fast these past two months have gone by.
I have made it through Mother's Day, Memorial Day, My daughter's birthday, our anniversary and now my birthday.
In less than a week I will finally be able to hold my husband in my arms again.
As great as that is it will be bitter sweet because he will only be home for six days :(
I knew this deployment would be hard but I must admit that it has made me realize I am a much stronger person than I ever thought I was.
I have learned that no matter how bad of a day I am having then next day is a fresh start.
Time goes fast and we need to remember to take it all in and make good memories even during the hard times.
Next week while my hubby is home I plan on laughing until I cry, crying until I laugh, staying up late and getting up early.
And of course taking way to many pictures.
Wasted time is time we can never get back so go out tomorrow and remember to live life to the fullest and be grateful for all the people in your life.
