And so it begins....

We began with the ever famous 'Potty Training' with K a couple of days ago. She has done alright. C was much easier. She is so independent and stubborn and since its not her idea, she just doesn't want to do it. She knows how, and can physically do it. So the battle of the wills begins... (I'm sure my mother is just laughing right now and thinking to herself how much I deserve a daughter just like me!) We will have to see how much patience I have and how long this takes. I've already considered giving up...

On another note, our vacation was fabulous. The kids had a wonderful time, we had a wonderful time, I would love to do it all over again. Maybe in a few years. There will be more to come, as soon as I can sort through pictures and catch up on the laundry.

I just started working on potty training with C~ today, too. We went to the store this evening and bought Smarties as a reward for whenever he pees in the toilet. He keeps trying to convince me that he'll get them without performing. My other kids were at least excited about trying to use the potty--he is downright defiant about it. He keeps telling me, "I wear a diaper."

Let me know if you come up with some magic trick.

Good luck with that. I hate potty training!

That picture at the top of your blog is adorable! You have such a beautiful family. :o)

Good luck with the potty training. Anna was 3 1/2 when she (finally) was trained. She didn't want to do it...such a determined (read: stubborn) girl!
