Christmas Tree Woes

So I am seriously contemplating taking our Christmas tree down early. Owen just won't leave it alone. Ether that or maybe I will just put all the ornaments away. He started just taking off the ones he could reach and calling them spaceships or planes(I am gonna blame the startrek tree for that one.) To prevent having broken glass everywhere. As he takes them off I have been puting them up high ontop of the TV. So now the tree is nearly empty and he is going out of his way to try to reach the ones on top. Which resulted in his tipping the whole thing over this morning and having broken glass all over my front room. I have been trying the naughty chair, and even telling him how we are gonna have to take the tree down and santa won't know where to put his presents. Anyway, I am pissed. Any suggestions?

What I Get When I Ask Sman For A Simple Favor

So last night I needed to use my studio. I asked Spencer if he would let me test the lighting on him. This is what I got....

Isn't he a crack up!!! By the way who else is lovin' the scruffy winter beard? facial hair at it's finest. I am a lucky gal!

After screaming at all of our neighbors, that he didn't need anymore candy, "he already had TWO!" OJD ransacked kamari's candy basket, and stole all of her blow pops.

Best family picture ever!

In other news Steve Kemp is stronger than I thought, that is 22 lbs people!

This One's For The Grandparents

but  feel free to love it even if you're not one.  

Yep, this is me, I am THAT Blogger

Okay I know I am becoming a stereotype even as I write this, but I need help. Here it goes:

So about a month ago we decided to be done with diapers for good with Owen. I was not going to be that mom who took baby steps to get this crap (pun intended) over with. I was going to bite the bullet, and take the plunge. I knew it was gonna suck, but I would rather be covered in poop for a few days, maybe even a week or so, and be done with it. Well that was Monday September 29th. Four and a half weeks, and endless times being covered in feces later, and I am done, I give up.

Here is what we have been doing.... I will tell you and my hope is that someone who reads this will be able to tell me what it is that I am doing wrong.

-1st thing in the AM we take him potty, usually 80% of the time his diaper he slept in is dry. He is still in diapers during his one nap, and while asleep at night. I have been told by everyone, that Pull Ups are glorified, more expensive diapers, so we are just using diapers.

- I started with setting a timer and taking him potty every 20 minutes, if he went pee he got one potty treat, poop two. Eventually I figured he really only needed to go every 45mins to an hour. That was working out pretty well. I then started to notice "the signs" that he needed to go. Every time he wandered off down the hallway I would find an accident. So I got pretty good at watching him, and taking him at the right times. That is it, That is what I have been doing for a month, and we are not moving on. He is not potty trained, I am. If I try to get anything done, including feeding the baby, shower, use the bathroom myself, ANYTHING. He will create a mess for me to clean up.

So my question is this: How do I get him to care about it? Is this normal? Have I, by deciding to potty train my child, agreed to never let him out of my sight again? I am seriously contemplating putting him back in diapers until he starts to care about his own bowels. Would it really be so bad to just put him back in diapers? Will I be making things worse? My favorite time of day is when he is asleep :( I am on edge all day that he is in big boy pants. I have done the let him play outside thing too, he comes in with muddy urine all over him.

I am done. I will accept any and all suggestions. THANKS for reading, hope you're not dry heaving you non-breaders out there.

I am glad the office is back

So I have not blogged in a while. I keep finding pictures to post and then I get side tracked. Owen had another marker incident the other day and I thought about taking pictures and posting how CRAZY! my kid is but then I realized even I am becoming bored with his destruction. He has become so destructive lately. Eli has 2 teeth now and has decided to stop sleeping through the nights. This kid honestly has slept so well up to this point that I can't complain, about his sleeping anyway....

The other day I was helping one of my young women with a photo assignment she had for school. Here are some of the shots she took of my kids. I think she has an eye, don't you?

So Blessed

Seriously So Funny this has got to be one of the funniest things I have ever read. You don't know all this unless you have lived it. I think I laugh for the same reason that I laugh at SWPL, who doesn't like to laugh at themselves. I get the feeling that TAMN is a little bitter, but that's okay cause he/she is too funny! make sure to turn your volume up, you won't be sorry.

Mr. Funny no-Pants

We have been spending a substantial amount of time at Steve and Kam's pool this summer. The pool is the best babysitter ever!! (yeah that's safe!) Also, thanks to Grandma Cathie for the rad alligator boots, that are glued on.
