The past few days I have had to remind myself several times how much I love my kids. They have been crazy!! I don't know that I mentioned that my daughter is 4 going on 17. I thought the "I know everything" attitude didn't start until a little older. I guess not. My oldest son, Jacob, is 2 going on monster. He is crazy! He is all over and into things and playing too rough with the baby. He is so lightning fast to do things he's not supposed to, but getting in and out of the car takes five years!! Isaac is just so cute. I think this only because he doesn't walk or talk yet. That is to come.
Jake is potty trained. Everyone says that boys are so hard to potty train, not him really. I do have to say that I had it pretty easy with Abbi. I put panties on her one day at two and a half and told her not to go potty in them . . . and she didn't. Jake was a little tougher than that. It took a good two weeks constantly reminding him to use the toilet and quite a few accidents but it went pretty smoothly. We just have to work on the wiping thing-gross!
Abbi is loving preschool. It does cost a lot more money for preschool here than we were planning on spending in KS but I feel it's important. I did do her first year of preschool here at the house and she did great. She has been able to write her name for a year now almost and she knows most of her letters (if she's in the right mood she will grace you with her knowledge). I did feel however that for her pre-K year she should be in an environment with other kids her age and a teacher other than Mommy. She is doing great. Every time I ask her what she did in preschool she says she can't tell me. . . it's a secret. Should I be concerned? I would be except for the fact that she points out everything that every one (adults included) does wrong. I am sure she would be first in line to tattle on her classmates or teachers.
Isaac was sick a few days ago and that was pretty gross. A baby spitting up on me is nothing, but he vomited all the freshly eaten baby food all over me and I made the mistake of putting him directly in the bathtub to clean myself off. This was a mistake because he had also exploded in his diaper. A poopy diaper in water is not a good combo!! Crazy day!! I know this is all gross so I will stop that and tell you that he is so happy all the time. He will smile and laugh at anything and everything. He is sitting up well and rocks back and forth on his hands and knees. He hasn't figured out the coordination to actually crawl but he somehow makes it across the living room floor.
I love my kids!!
