Katelyn's Personal Shopper

Katelyn's "button" on her Crocs broke the other day at school. It attaches the strap to the shoe. Anyway, she came home from school yesterday and showed me this. She wrote her teacher this note telling her she needed her to go to the mall and get her a new button for her Crocs. Her teacher sent her home with a new button. Needless to say, a follow up (from Mom) with Mrs. Ceglio will be happening today! I guess I don't have to worry about whether Katelyn feels comfortable enough with her teacher to ask her for help when she needs it! haha Her teacher is absolutely fabulous and we adore her. I'm curious what she thought when she saw this note from Katelyn...I will have to ask her!
Embarrassing, but funny! :)
As you can tell, Katelyn is definitely not my introverted, shy child!

Her teacher got her a new button!

Here is a picture of Kehli's leg after she scratched it on the grill. This is the affect of the ITP. She bruises so badly, especially when she bumps something. These bruises are on the side of her thigh (if you can't tell that already), so you can tell how big they are. The bruises are actually starting to look better now...I should have taken a picture after it first happened. Her poor leg looked aweful! Although the bruises look better in this picture, I still think it looks horrible! Poor Kehli! And for a quick update...her numbers have been staying up a little more, so they said we can wait 1 month to have her blood tested again! HOORAY!!

Potty Talk

For any of you who hate when mom's talk "potty talk"...I suggest you skip reading this post! For everyone else, here is the scoop! I decided that I would like to try and potty train Tayler this summer. She is only 1 (she'll be 2 on September 11), but I thought I would still try. The sooner we get rid of diapers, the better! Anyway---I have been sitting her on the potty periodically trying to get her used to sitting on it so she won't be scared when it is time to actually potty-train. It's actually kind of is this tiny little girl sitting on this big potty. In case you are wondering, I HATE potty chairs. They totally gross me out. I have always potty-trained my kids to go on the big potty. Well, yesterday was Tayler's 20 month birthday and she gave mommy a great present. After her nap, I put her on the potty and told her to go "poopie" in the potty. Guess what...she DID!! It was almost too easy. Now, by NO means am I trying to tell you she is potty-trained. I am no dummy! In fact, it was probably just an "accident", but I will take what I can get! The funniest part of all of it was probably my reaction. I started clapping and jumping around and shouting "yay Tayler". She was just giggling and was so proud of herself! Mommy was very proud of her too!
This could be the start of a beautiful friendship! :)

Anything for a buck $$!!

Why does my husband love me you ask? Keep reading---

I love you... has just released its annual take on what stay-at-home moms would be paid for their work in the business world. The symbolic figure: a whopping $138,646.
Funny---I haven't received a check in the mail and I haven't seen any money deposited into my account anywhere near that figure! Who do I need to speak with about a raise? Maybe I should just start by asking for a check first! haha
Let's see, considering that I am worth a whopping $138,646 and I babysit full-time and I've done cakes, taught piano and held a few part-time jobs, my conclusion is this...
Of course he loves my money...oops, I meant me!

If only we (stay-at-home-moms) really got those kind of paychecks...
I guess it's a good thing daddy works so hard and get's a REAL paycheck! :)

Rich always jokes about all of the things I do/have done to earn money, and so he says that he is going to have "ANYTHING FOR A BUCK" engraved on my tombstone! Please don't let him...
