Origami and a Basket Case

Ella is officially potty trained. She has been for a while, but I no longer have to help at all, well besides remind her to flush....and wash her hands. But washing is more my fault because we have to hide the soap from Audrey's OCD handwashing tendencies. That could be a whole blog in itself. (Yes, we have gone through more then one whole bottle of Bath and Body Works soap in a day in case you were wondering) There are so many great things about having your child potty trained. One of my favorites is going into the bathroom to find this.

Yes it took me about 10 mins to find out how to undo the paper.

Also this week we got to watch our friend Calla. The girls have such a good time with her and Calla likes the girls, but REALLY likes Daisy. While she was here I had to do my visiting teaching so I piled 3 girls in a double stroller and walked on over to our friend Carrie's. Calla had a great time with all the toys as you can see.

Afterward we headed to the park, and fit some sidewalk chalk in too. We have been loving our 60-70 degree weather.

So funny about the soap! I do remember finding the toilet paper in a looooooooong trail all around the downstairs. That was fun. Kids are so funny. We spend So much money on toys etc and all they want are car keys, toilet paper, and hand soap. go figure!

I need some help potty training my sweet boy. I think I am going to have to wait until the terrrible 2s are over. He's got it bad. Love the TP it sure is better than putting the whole roll in the potty. I'm sure you have that too. I smelled a funny smell in the bathroom I just cleaned once I looked around I found a wet roll of TP behind the potty.

I love how they always find new and inventive ways to waste the toilet paper. One day emma made a "dress" out of it. it looked more like an inappropiate mini skirt.

OCD is awesome! I love washing my hands too! Sorry it's been so long since I posted, I thought you stopped your blog once you did book face (as Michael Scott refers to it)
