Potty Training

Since I'm off of work til next Tuesday I am attempting potty training Ryan. I think he is ready, as a lot of the time he wants to sit on the potty. The question now is, Do I have the patience to do it. :o)

I want to move the boys downstairs in hopes that will start sleeping through the night again. When he spends the night at Grandma & Grandpa's he sleeps in the basement and always sleeps through the night. The dilemma is that there isn't a bathroom down there I don't want to be potty training while they sleep down there. I'm hoping to get the potty done and then move them down there. I might put the little potty down there for the first lil bit, just in case.

Ryan's First Major Owie

Last Monday the boys were @ my In-Laws. They made a poster for Uncle Chase, who just returned from his mission to Guatamala 2 days ago. I think they had fun doing it :) I wasn't there. They got to strip down to underware/diapers so they didn't get paint on their clothes.
I got a text from Phill saying that Ryan had burned his arm and they were taking him to the hospital. Here is the story:

The fireplace was on and Ryan being a sneaky lil guy grabbed the remote from behind my MIL and changed the channel. She took the remote away and turned around to change the channel back and Ryan decided he'd sneak behind her... on the other side of her was the gas fireplace whose glass cover burns hot when it is on. He leaned against the fireplace and burned his arm... lil naked man that he was :o) His lil finger to his elbow.

The Next Day

The goings on....

Well, Phill started his 2nd job this wk. Let me just say wow! I didn't realize how exhausting it is to be with the kids 24/7! I'm exhaused, the boys are exhausted and I'm know Phill is exhausted getting up in the am going to be @ work by 8 and then straight to his next job, coming home for dinner, then back to wk only to get home around midnight or later, fall asleep only to get up the next morning and do it all over again! I have to say I think we all look forward to the days that he only works one of the jobs. I love you babe! thx for all your hard work!

The boys have been getting into everything! :o) My make-up... again! one of my Be Radiant Baked Powder... completely gone... ground into the carpet in their bedroom!

Kendrick knows how to turn on the microwave.... although he doesn't know how long he's putting things in for! Yesterday he put a roll I had made in to heat it up. I don't know how long it had been in the microwave... When it registered in my head that the microwave was on I looked @ it and saw it glowing red and full of smoke!!!! Nice! I know! Needless to say the house got a little cold as I opened all the doors and windows to air it out, the roll was a chunk of burnt nothingness and the microwave was fun to clean... not really. :o) Luckily we did not have a fire and our house did not burn down! I did decide we need to get a fire exstinguisher though! :o)

Ryan is still running aroung after his brother. Climbing up onto the top bunk and getting stuck since he doesn't know how to get down the ladder. Still not talking very much but Iguess that will come with time. :o)


Well... I haven't been very good at my resolutions so far this year! Obviously the blogging once/week hasn't happened since my last post was my bday! The cleaning... well lets not talk about that ;o) The Organizing... working on it. I got my pantry organized the other day and now when I open it I just smile! - Love it! :o) The Morgan 5 - I'm doing ok on. Hit and miss some days but I try. Emergency Prep - haven't done anything with. My Mary Kay business - didn't really start trying till this wk. That is pretty much how my resolutions are all going. I'll keep working on them though. :o) How are your's going?

Happy Birthday!

... to me! Yay! It is officially the beginning of the end! ....The end of my 20's, that is. This time next year I will be in my 30's!!!! Can anyone else just not believe that?! I swear it seems like just yesterday.... that's totally a mom line right? :o).... that I was a boy crazy teenager!

Lucky for me it wasn't yesterday and I am blessed with a wonderful family! One that sometimes drives me crazy but I love you all regardless! To my siblings and parents, I love you and am grateful that I was able to have grown up with all of you in my life and for the great memories I have of all of you!

To those who joined our family through marriage along the way: You all rock! I'm glad you joined the fam and love our craziness in spite of us! ;o) ... because you are all crazy too! hehe

To the family I joined when Phill and I married: I love you all and feel like I've known you forever! Maybe I have. :o) Thanks for all you do for me! (Katie you are included in this bunch even though you joined after me)

To my Husband: I love you! Thank you for putting up with all my craziness, stubborness and faults! Thank you for loving me inspite of it all! Thank you for laughing with me...NOT at me! ;o) Although you do that too sometimes. Thank you for trying.

To my boys: I'm so grateful to have you in my life! I don't know what I would do without you! Well, aside from sleep a little more and clean a little less. I love you both and love to see you growing and learning! Kendrick: Thank you for making me smile and all the love you give me. Ilove just listening to you playing in the other room and thinking to myself, "This is what life is really all about and makes it worth it!" Ryan: You are my sweet baby boy! I love your laugh and watching you chasing after your brother! Watching you grow and simply the fact that you gave me a zerbit the other day, laughed, did it again, laughed again, over and over!

I love you all! Thank you for all the memories and love!

BTW "Cut the Cake" by John McCutcheon is THE BEST birthday song ever!

So my little boy is growing up! Three years old and running around trying to shoot everything and making a gun out of anything he can find! And now, lying! I never knew it started so young!

So the other day I opened the refridgerator and found an egg in the leftovers from breakfast! Egg and half the shell... hopefully the rest of the egg shell made it into the trash because I haven't found it. Anyways, knowing K and that for some reason he has always liked playing with the eggs I asked him why there was an egg in the leftovers. He said, "I dont' know" I said, "Did you break the egg and put it in there?" He said no. I asked,"Are you lying?" He said, "Yes, No!" Sorry honey, too late to revize once you've spilled the beans! :o)

That was the only slip up though, Now its just lying... How do you get it to stop?
