The Potty Training Diaries

So my goal over my winter break from school was to work with the kids on potty training yet again.  I was thinking that Zachary would take because he was telling us (well dancing and saying mommy or daddy) when he needed to go.  I thought Elizabeth would be easy because she had it over …

Thanksgiving

Holidays are always a challenge for us, not that it is a bad thing.  It is just the fact with four kiddos we keep structure and a routine and have things child proofed.  So anything different makes for an interesting time.  We have learned to bring as much stuff with us to prepare for whatever …
