The week is off to a slow and relaxed start! Today we had a great afternoon with "Gramma Lynn." We made Halloween cookies and the kids loved them, well, the frosting and sprinkles at least.
I'm busy working on plans for Allie's first birthday party in just a few weeks. It is really fun spending time doing all the little details that I never had time for doing past parties. When the triplets turned 1, I was just pregnant with Allie and not feeling very well. Their second birthday was last April and we were just back from NYC. Needless to say both parties were kind of thrown together and I always felt pressed for time and energy. I'm so looking forward to celebrating this 1st birthday and be able to take a deep breath and enjoy it!
My other big project coming up is potty training. Can you hear me gasping in fear? This is the one thing I have dreaded since the kids were born. The thought of dragging three kids to and fro the potty all day makes me wonder if we should just move into the bathroom for a few weeks. Will I ever leave?
It seemed as though Cara was completely ready. We have a potty in the bathroom and she can go on command pretty much 100% of the time. She is also obsessed with the idea of wearing panties, so I bought her some. Sunday I put her on the potty, she peed, then I put the new panties on. I explained the whole thing and then set the timer for 30 minutes so I could put her back on the potty. Well, 30 minutes and three puddles later, Cara sat on the potty. She didn't tell us when she peed on the floor, so poor Matt had to have a search and seizure mission. The diaper went back on and I went back to dreading the whole thing:)
I'm sure you are all looking forward to some potty stories over the next few months!
