pee pee in the potty.

I started potty training my 2 year old a few months ago. I was hesitant about it because I would be potty training 2 dogs and 1 kid at the same time. She wanted to do it long before I wanted to and pretty much talked me into it.
Well, we are on month 2 now and I am glad it went so well. She was completely potty trained within days! She has had a handful of accidents and all were in the first few days so I really can't complain. She started going number 2 in the potty day 1. I thought that was rare.
We haven't even dared tempting no diaper at night time though. I already have enough laundry to do. In the mean time I will keep working on the dogs. Zoey, our female that we have had sense she was 6 weeks was potty trained by 3 months old. Gus, the male. Is still having a hard time. We didn't get him tell he was almost 6 months old. You can clearly tell that he wasn't worked with very well. He is doing great though. If you would just stop marking his territory or whatever the heck he is doing! sheesh.

School Already???

Well this is it. Shyanna will be 5 in July so Kindergarten here she comes. I have really been dreading this year. Really, last year I took her to a Preschool to go check it out and meet the other kids and teacher. I just couldn't do it and ended up doing preschool at home! I really was never planning on doing home school and I don't think it is for me. I do have alot of patience with my kids but really, I wasn't born to teach. I will be looking for a local preschool for miss Callie in the mean time.
I am so use to my crazy days here. Every day is extremely nuts. I have 3 kids 4 and under. I mean 5 out of 7 days of the week I don't even get a chance to sit down and eat tell after they eat there lunch. I am so glad that I started quiet time when I did! You wouldn't expect anything else right? What am I going to do with myself if 2 of my kids are gone? Sit and there beds and weep tell they get home, clean, bake, sit and play dead, play video games all day, craft? Maybe all the above...

What do you other mothers do while your kids are at school?
