I Miss Taking Pictures

I really apologize about how long it has been since I've posted any pictures. I really miss taking pictures of the kids too! I have emailed the camera people, and haven't heard anything back. So now, I'll be calling. Don't they know how much I use that camera?!

I have a positive potty update today. Cara and Eli continue to be doing very well on the potty. We are still in the "telling them to go every 20-30 minute" stage, but they are complying so well and having very few accidents. Brady still seems very uninterested, so I think it is becoming clear to me that some heavy bribing may have to come into play with him. I'm going to see how the weekend goes, and hopefully start with him on Monday.

I started with Cara's eye patching yesterday, but I forgot to do it today! She was so happy to wear it yesterday at first! The boys were totally jealous and we all had a great time pretending to be pirates. But after a few minutes, Cara got very annoyed by the stickiness of the patch, pulled it off, and said "Mommy, I'm all done with this!" This morning, I asked her when she wanted to put her patch on. She replied, "Mo-mmy! I don't want to do that. I can't see a thing with that patch on!" So I decided to wait until later, and then promptly forgot about it all together. Tomorrow is another day.


  1. Please tell the photo people there is a whole universe of Williams Family fans out there who are being DEPRIVED of photos because of the camera being out of action :)

  2. Bribing does work! Try tiny M&M's.

    Above all remember one day at a time.

    Love, Deb R.

  3. Hello Williams family, sounds like a busier than usual home these days. Cara and the patch, I will tell you this, do it now and get her used to it, because the later you do it the more teasing she will endure. Our youngest daughter had to wear an eye patch when she was four, the kids in the neighborhood were not very nice. Please encourage her to use it, and get used to the bumping into things. I know this will break your heart the first few times she walks into a wall or doorway, but children adjust far easier than adults. She will cry and throw a few tantrums, but stay strong, that patch is very important to strengthening the weak muscle. I wish there was a company out there that made patches look better than they do. If Cara had a daily choice of color or design she might find that having to wear it isn't so bad. Good luck with the potty training. Prayers continue daily for you all.

  4. You may want to order Cara some eye patches from here
    she may be more receptive to it if she has some fun ones.
