Weekly Wrap Up: September 11



This was a short, but eventful week of school in that I have a newly potty trained little boy! He's been using the potty on his own, with no prompting from me, and it's wonderful! He's so proud of himself, every time he uses the potty he wants me to come and see it, which is very cute.

So the week was short because of Labor Day on Monday. We had a party with some friends and family for Labor Day, and as we were getting out the grill we realized that was the first time we had grilled all summer! Where did the summer go?

We stayed close to home (and the potty) on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, and got quite a bit of school work done. Thursday Matthew had his first dentist appointment, and he did very well. He climbed right up into the chair and opened his mouth for the dentist, no problem. He seemed to have fun, and he loved riding up and down in the chair. Lucy's dance class also started back up on Thursday. After the class, Lucy's friend and her mom come over and have dinner with us and hang out every week. Don't you love it when you get along great with your kid's friend's parents?!?

Today we're visiting my parents, who live about 40 minutes away from us. We ran some errands this morning, and now are just relaxing at my parents house for the afternoon.

How was your week?

Oh, yay on the potty training! I'm so glad to be out of the diaper stage here. I'm glad to hear the first trip to the dentist went well, too. It's always nice when that can be a positive experience.

Potty training AND the dentist? I'd say that was a most successful week!

I just potty trained my last of four a few months ago. Isn't it the best, well sort of, I was kind of sad that my last baby was growing up. I know, that makes me a little odd. I had one that hated the dentist, all three of the others acted like it was just another game. The latter is definitely less stressful than the former. Hope y'all have a blessed week!

My daughter hates the dentist, so I was worried about Matthew's appointment. I mean, she's 8 years old and finally opened her mouth long enough for a cleaning!

Yes, potty training the last one is a bit sad. I think that's why I keep putting off getting the big boy bed. I don't want him to grow up so fast!

I can't wait until my youngest is potty trained, unfortunately he doesn't have any interest!

Yeaaaaa on the potty training! It's been a long time since we had diapers here but I remember being a little sad when I realized that my diaper days were over! To top it off, the dentist too! Let's hope the good luck stays!
