My sister in law's visit was ok. She did swoosh in with one of her kids and immediately start talking about her problems and hardships. My niece played with my kids and as usual didn't eat lunch or dinner but had three desserts and some chips to top it off.
Mind you she is twelve years old, not five.

I thought they were coming for lunch but stayed for dinner too, thank goodness I had something or that I didn't have plans that night. After eight hours they left.
Now I just have to watch there son for 3 days next month while they are away and my brother in law is working. He is eleven and shouldn't be much of a problem. Lets just hope he eats.
I am not used to picking eaters, I was always taught to eat what I was served and if I didn't like it to eat something else but never announce it. I was also encouraged to try new things.
They are used to eating terrible food from"restaurants" like Friendlys and anything that is fried or bad for you.

I really don't want to jinx it but I think my kids are pretty much potty trained. My daughter will put on a pullup to poop but as for pee, she never has an accident even in the car or stores and she has been this way for two weeks now.
My son just really started yesterday and he pooped and peed in the toilet yesterday & today despite one accident over night in his pullup.
Wow, I am really excited. Thank heavens. After three and a half years I don't even want to think about how much money I have spent on diapers, but now I will have a save a great deal of money by not buying those overpriced diapers.

With all the money we are saving I think I can donate it, surely it is enough to cure cancer or maybe we can vacation on the moon.

Can you tell how excited I am?!


  1. Oh I know! We've been buying diapers nonstop for the past 6 years and now with another on the way, I'm just praying my 3 yr old is peeing and poopin on the pot soon or I'll have to buy 3 different sizes. That would totally suck!

    I'm glad to hear you'll be saving some cash now though! Good luck with your nephew!

  2. Vaca on the moon? hmm sounds nice. Though sounds like you would rather send you SIL there and go somewhere more tropical for yourself!
    I cant wait to not have to buy diapers anymore!

  3. Yeah for potty training!! Mine just stop wearing pull ups at night and I bet we save $1000 in the next six months!

  4. Holy crap!! 3.5 years, I'd have been SOOOOO broke, but I had my kids 385 years ago. I panicked when I found out I was pregnant again when my son was only 13 months old and he was potty trained in a week and my daughter was a little harder, but she was done by about 16 months old.

    But things are different now. Things are so much more relaxed with kids. My kids are now 18 and 16. I wonder if I'd still have tried it that early. I don't know. I don't think it would change how QUICK my son did it, because he couldn't STAND being wet and once that diaper came off he didn't like training pants, but I might not have tried it as early.

    But congrats on getting it done! YAY!!!!
