Funnies from Ethan

On Mother's Day I was playing Mario Kart on our Wii...and as I was driving through the mall parking lot, I saw Dave's Mii and I kept running into his car. So I, without thinking, said "Dammit Dave" and Ethan turned around, looked at the TV and started "dammit Dabe, dammit Dabe" Oops! It was hard not to laugh.

Today, I was in a client meeting when my phone rang. It was Kindercare. I stepped out of the room and I hear "Hi Lori, this is Ms. Colleen. Ethan has something to tell you." At this point, the thoughts of someone being hurt/sick were gone, but then I went to worried thinking about how he had come home with two incidents recently of biting and now they are making him call me to tell me. Ethan gets on the phone and says "Mama. Potty" Apparently he'd used the potty! Ms. Colleen came back on and said they call the parents after the first time the kids use the potty for the first time. I was so excited and yet a little apprehensive to be talking on the phone in the middle of all the Target offices and saying "Great Job using the Potty!"

Not to be out down by his brother Aidan is soooo on the verge of walking! He's pushing our shopping cart all over and our Elmo walk-behind toy. He's even taken a couple steps between Jay & I.

Maybe Grandpa & Grandma will get Ethan potty trained & Aidan walking while we're on vacation!

Cleaning / Finding stuff

I dread the thought of cleaning our house, but we have to do it. With two little boys...we have to do it a lot! But it seems like not matter when we do it, it isn't half as bad as we thought it would be and it always takes twice as much time as we thought it would. And we always find stuff we forgot about.....this week a couple things have come back to us that we forgot about. When I took Aidan in for his appointment to check for stitches I put his shoes on the roof of the car while I was locking him in the car seat only to forget them up there and drive away. One of them flew off! This week when I took him back for his follow up ear infection....there it was on the side of the road! Crazy huh? Also this week I ended up working late because of a meeting and I ran into the cleaning guy Jesus from American Express. "Hola Amiga" He asked how many babies I had now and where Jay was working. It's so fun to run into old friends and he was so nice! I hope to run into him more. Well....back to the dreaded cleaning.....Cross your fingers the place will stay somewhat clean until we leave for Mexico! :)
