A tantrum for you

When a 2 year old does something he's not supposed to and you take the object that he was doing something wrong with away a tantrum will ensue.

When you go lock yourself in the bathroom to take a shower and get away from said tantrum you may not be as safe as you think.

If you're 2 year old is anything like mine, he will probably get something long, in this case a hockey stick, to knock the keys off of their hook.

He will then come and unlock the bathroom door so that he can throw a tantrum for you while you take a shower.

I'm trying really hard to think of this as funny so I don't lose my patience too early in the morning.

Remember Today

Dear Mom,

Help me remember today. It was such a fun day.

I loved going to the farm and petting the animals. Thanks for letting me buy some food to feed the ducks and chickens.

Did you see me ride that big horse? I wasn't even scared. I'm glad it wasn't as big as the horses that pulled us on our trolley ride. Those were BIG!

My favorite part of the day was going to the park after my nap. It was really fun throwing rocks in the water and playing on the playground.

Wasn't it so fun when it started to rain and we hid in the tower of the playground? I'm glad you taught me how to karate chop and kick those dragons that were trying to climb up the tower and get us. That was funny.

Thanks for not getting mad when I splashed in every puddle on the way back to the car.

Don't let me forget this fun day.


Don't worry, Zeke. I'll never forget.

Growing Up

I officially began potty training Zeke yesterday. He wished I had started months ago. I'm glad I waited. He made it all day without ever going in his pants. I'm pretty sure he went to the bathroom 45 times yesterday.

Here's to hoping we keep being as successful.

Trip to Oregon

Daniel got married last week. I don't have any pictures of the actual wedding day (lame I know) but I got lots of pictures of some of the other activities we did. The weather was beautiful and we spent as much time as possible outside. Zeke absolutely loved having a place to play outside and cousins to play with all day long.
