When it suits her

Bathtime - Sunday night.  Hannah is avoiding bathtime and bedtime.  What does she tell me, "Remember, Momma, I'm too big to take a bath with Cayden.  I have to wait until he's done with his bath because he might lay on me with his peepee."  Really?  I'm fairly certain last night, she bathed with her brother.  Now I know she's about to start first grade, and she really is too big to bathe with her brother, but she's also too big to lay in my bed, but that doesn't stop her from trying.  I guess along with making it through this summer without any injuries to my children, we are also going to start going to bed in our own room and take a bath/shower by herself.  What does that mean?  It also means no more baths with mommy.  I'm sure she didn't think of that one.  But she'll learn soon enough.

Mammaw bought her another workbook.  She's worked with it all afternoon, but just now decided she can't read any of the pages.  She's making me crazy.  That's okay.  A little bit at a time, right?  I'm not going to make her do homework during the summer.

As for my darling little boy, he is officially a big boy.  We potty trained this week.  He's doing great!  Big boy underwear all day (except church with Mammaw), dry all day (including nap), and has told us all day about his underwear being dry and when he needs to go potty.

Of course, I'm still getting used to being the mommy of a little boy.  I caught him in the living room, lying on the floor with his p**** on the outside of his underwear just staring at the ceiling.  He wasn't touching it, he wasn't playing with it, I guess he was just "airing" it out.  Regardless, I just stood there and then had Stephen explain that being naked is private and for the bathtub and potty only.  Very disturbing. 

As for myself, I'm working out every day and have now decided to train using the couch to 5k program.  Here goes nothing, right?  I may die trying, but I'm excited about having some sort of workout goal as well as my weight loss goal.  I may have overdid it today - my lower back is literally killing me, but I'm trying to breathe through it.

Here's to a great week - VBS, Preschool Summer Camp, and lots of fun!

Sounds like a great week! Cayden cracks me up! And Hannah ... You got it, everything "when it suits her." We *are* doing homework this summer ... 1 workbook page (front/back) each day from the Summer Bridge workbook. It's simple and straightforward, but it just keeps her in the groove. And then reading and her journal each day too. It also helps use up some time each day ~ never a bad thing.

Do you have any "free" time this summer? Make sure you get to relax, too!!

Good luck on your C25K ... sounds like a great plan. No pain, no gain!
