It's Tuesday afternoon. I am still in my pjs and the kids are all bathed and in clean jammies. It's just one of those days. Ok, most weeks have a few of "those days". Oh well. It is sunny here in Michigan, but still so cold. I am eagerly looking forward to Thursday when the temp is supposed to be in the high 20's or low 30's. I figure then, even with the windchill, Tyson and Jori can be outside for a while without risk of frostbite! They definitely could use the fresh air.
Potty training is still not going anywhere, although we had to buy a different brand of diapers last night and Jori said "I no like these diapers". So today she is back in a pull-up. I know, the inconsistency is probably just making things harder, but at this point, I don't care that she's not potty trained so whatever.
Tyson has developed a huge love of words. He loves to spell words on his "computer" and one of his favorite things is spelling words with his daddy at bedtime. Dentist and tornado are two of the words he can sound out. I am trying to encourage him to love reading as well. I wrote him a little story, which had the word 'snot' in it. That really got his interest. He is all boy.
We have been spending lots and lots of time at home. I don't want to be out driving on the yucky roads or going out in the cold, so a trip to the mall or McDonald's is really not that appealing to me. I am going to have to suck it up and just go, because it is only January. There is still a lot of winter left.
