Oh the Joys of Potty Training!

Well, we have started potty training Landri. I have not worried about doing it. I just wanted to make sure we had time to do it. She's is so funny though. I bought her the cutest potty chair. It looks like a toilet, it has a lid, a handle that actually teaches them to flush, and a place to hang toilet paper. The best part is that it sings to her when she goes tee-tee. I thought she would really like it, and she did. But here are a few things that have happened since we brought it home.

1. She did potty in it great, BUT...then she played in it! GROSS!!!!!

2. After asking her several times if she needed to go potty and her saying NO, she goes and hides in my pantry and tee-tees a BIG puddle on the tile floor. (But, after that, she used her new potty the rest of the day.)

3. This morning after asking her several times if she needed to go potty and AGAIN her saying NO, she goes into Lainie's room and poopoos on the floor behind her bed! GROSSSSSSSSS!

I decided to make her sit on the potty for a while, and she does this...

Oh well, I should have given her a book to read. Life with Landri is never dull. I love it! I wouldn't trade it for the world! She makes me laugh, cry, smile, name it! I just hope this doesn't take very long, because I am tired of buying 2 sets of diapers. The only thing is now I'll be making many trips to public restrooms. I may have to buy stock in hand sanitizer!

I'll keep you posted on our daily trials of potty training!!!

Our Former President!

I must admit that I did not watch the Inauguration of President Obama. I can't imagine what an exciting time it is for his family. I still have my reservations about him, but I do hope that he will make the best decisions for our country. I will pray for wisdom for him and protection for his precious little girls. That evening on the news I did see some things that truly offended me, though. It had nothing to do with him, but it was about our former President George W. Bush! I think that it is awesome that he and Laura our moving to the Dallas area! What the news showed pictures of, were people protesting him moving to the area. They were holding signs of him behind bars, with the statement, "I have a dream" and "I don't want war criminals in my neighborhood". That is just WRONG! I am amazed at how quickly people forget the good things that he did and what he brought us through. I did watch part of his speech. Sure I may not agree with EVERYTHING he did, but he was right when he said that we haven't been attacked in 7 years! He was strong during 9/11 and was amazing during that unbelievable point in our nations history! But how quickly those people have forgotten that!!! Shame on them! Yes, he made mistakes! We all make mistakes. I believe that he had our country's best interest at heart. I wish that the media would quit giving those protesters air time. They don't deserve it! I am thankful that we had a president who loved the Lord! We was NOT a bad president and I am tired of people saying that he was!
