About Me

My photo
Welcome to my blog. I'm a Mississippi country girl transplanted to Grapevine, TX. I have been blessed with a great husband, and my kiddos, Aleck and Ella. When I'm not eating bon bons on the couch, I am my kid's room mom, PTA member, Sunday School teacher, taxi driver, amateur photographer and personal chef. When I'm not doing those things, I'm running a small jewelry business, 2nd Amendment Jewelry (www.2ndamendmentjewelry.com), that I started with my twin sister, Glenda. It's a crazy and busy life, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in this world. I am so thankful for all the blessings in my life!

High Tea with Big Girl Panties

Ella has been consistently using the potty for the last several weeks.  I usually have to remind her to go potty, but she always  sits on the toilet and  tinkles when I change her pull-up or diaper.  She usually prefers to use the big toilet, instead of her toilet seat.  She is fascinated with the potty and although I certainly don’t want to discourage her, at times I have to distract her to get her to leave the bathroom.

For the last two days, she has taken all her clothes off several times and run around the house buck naked.  This morning while I was getting Aleck ready for preschool, Ella was running around naked and it dawned on me that she was unusually quiet.  I took off running, in fear of a potty catastrophe.  She was strolling out of the bathroom with a grin on her face from ear to ear.  Sure enough, she had made it to the bathroom to have a BM on her potty.  We spent the rest of the day in big girl panties.  She had a few little accidents, but took off running to the bathroom when she realized she was tinkling. 

We spent some time in the afternoon celebrating her huge accomplishments over a nice cup of tea.  Girl bonding time…..gotta love it.
