Spring Break 07!!!
Potty Training 07!!!
Before I start on that...
This weekend, instead of a "date night", Jason and I had a "date afternoon" and you'll never guess what we did...we took an airbrushing on canvas class at a local gallery. It was AWESOME. Of course, Jason's project is better than mine, but he usually is better at this stuff than I am. It was so so fun and so fun to do it together.
Our weekend was so busy. The rundown:
Friday day - It was my work day at labschool and then Piper went to a friends house while Finley had swim lessons. Jason took off from work a bit early and after Finley's nap we rode our bikes over to pick up Piper. Then we rode our bikes to the park and played and then it was back home to wash up for dinner out with my parents because (lucky them) they left for vacation this week.
night- Mom's Night Out, and what a night out it was. I hadn't stayed out that late or had done those type of things in a long time. And was I feeling it on Saturday morning and my stomach is still wrecked today.
Saturday: morning- Fin had her last swim lesson, woo-hoo! Then, it was off to my least favorite place besides the dentist - Walmart - to buy our canvas for the airbrushing class. Our parent educator for labschool said the other night, "If you ever want to feel good about your parenting skills, just go to Walmart."
afternoon - airbrushing 101. Jason did a tiki and I did some hibiscus. The teacher was awesome and i highly recommend the gallery. They have workshops pretty much every weekend, and programs for kids during the week, Piper will learn out print-making next month.
Jason and I picked up pizza on the way home because we needed a quick dinner so we could go to
night - The FAIR!!! the girls had a great time, rides were ridden, ice cream was eaten, and dropped on the ground, and wiped off and eaten some more. Jason went on a ride with his sister and came off terrified. I won't ride the crazy rides because those things aren't required to be inspected, I just don't trust them. I went on one ride with the girls, "The Crazy Bus" and Friday night was haunting me. nice
Sunday: we skipped church and went down south to Joann's because I had a bunch on gift cards to spend from Christmas and I wanted to get some crafts for the girls for this week. Jason dropped me off so I could do the bulk of my fabric shopping alone (thanks honey!) and took the girls a bunch of places.
My brother came over for dinner last night (which was not good - grill broke, baked potatoes not baked enough) and then finally to bed.
But the fun does not stop there.
Plans for SPRING BREAK 07!
Monday: laundry, cleaning, play dough making, errands to run, solar blanket to buy, college to apply, pottying to train. Then to the park and dinner with friends.
Tuesday: BEACH, potty training
Wednesday: SEA WORLD, potty training (ha!)
Thursday: not sure yet but we will be potty training
Friday: BEACH and a playdate along with potty training
And so it is that time in her life when Finley will start using the toilet. She is ready, I am ready. The problem is that with each of these milestones, I am further and further away from that baby stage and I'm not sure that I am looking forward to doing that baby stages thing all over again. hhmm.
ooo! The paper I ordered for invitation for the his and hers shower I'm giving for my good friend and my brother-in-law just came so that will be something else to do this week - Designing the invites! Woo-hoo! Did you know that my brother-in-law is marrying one of my best friends from childhood and still today? We met at labschool and we will be sisters!
ok, this post is so random. I'll try to get a shot of our "airbrushing."
