Potty Traning Update & Brice's Gross Habit!

The twins colored for the first time (at least at home, I know they've colored before at church). they both enjoyed themselves, espicially Alexandria who spent quite a bit of time working.







So today was the second day of potty-training for Brice. He did excellent. He woke up dry this morning, went straight to the bathroom to potty and has had NO ACCIDENTS all day long. We are doing this totally cold-turkey. I think I said last time that I don't do pull-ups. I also don't do diapers at night (except with one kid). I know a lot of people have wondered why I haven't made a big deal of potty training before. This is exactly why. Not to sound uppity, but this is the 5th baby I've potty trained and I have learned a thing or two in the process. If you try to potty train before a child is ready, yes you can have success, but it usually means a lot of pull-ups, or diapers at night. On the other hand, if you wait until your child is good and ready then potty training is actually quite simple and you don't even need to mess with putting diapers on for when the child is asleep or the whole pull-up bull crap ect. I know all children aren't the same and some have special issues but by and large, its so much simpler just to wait until your little one is completely ready.
Today is Fat Tuesday and I'm sure that Albert and I have each gained about ten pounds tonight alone from all the jumbalaya we ate in honor of Marti Gras! Yummy! Debi, thanks for the idea!
Tomorrow we start living healthier. For lent, I am giving up chocolate (all candy in fact), Soda, and eating late at night. Debi and I had this discussion this morning. We will be Lent partners!
So, listen to this...and try not to laugh. Brice has a new toy...feminine sanitary products!!!! I am not kidding. He goes under the sink, gets out the tampons, opens them and plays with them. I keep finding them in all sorts of places...in the toilet (he's discovered that when wet, they inflate) in his bed, in my bed and my personal favorite, in the shower! I caught him today getting one out. I wonder what he thinks they are??? Anyway, I must say I find this habit of his a little gross. Espicially when he dips them in the toilet or the shower. yuck.
Get this...we have installed the third TV in two months downstairs. The first two died. This evening BRICE PUT A MAGNET ON THE TELEVISION!!! I'm sure most of you know what happens when you put a magnet on the t.v. For those of you who don't, it discolors the t.v. so now we have a big green and purple splotch on our set. It's actually quite hysterical. When you watch a program, peoples' faces are green and purple. Albert was a bit upset. In fact, so irritated he had to take a ride around the block to calm down. He got a beer and texted his sister for a few minutes until he could calm down. I, on the other hand, was howling with laughter! How can you not laugh...Brice is the biggest Denis the Menace I have ever met!
