See you later diapers!

Diapers are a thing of the past in this house and I can honestly say it wasn't nearly as hard as I thought it was going to be.

I tried the 3 day potty training with both girls and it was a nightmare. I wouldn't recommend that to anyone......ever. All it did was scare the heck out of both of them.

Thankfully I didn't scar them too bad because a month after I quit the idea of having potty trained kids Finley potty trained herself. She asked Gary to use the potty and hasn't had one accident. That was probably about 3 months ago. A few weeks ago Gillian started showing a little interest in wearing big girl undies so I put her in a pair, let her pee in them and she was so upset she peed on her princess undies that she has been on the potty since. Piece of cake.

Now the adorable thing is Finley the potty pro helping Gillian the potty newbie in the bathroom. If Gillian announces she has to go Finley says "I take you" and goes in with her. Then she helps her pull down her pants and undies and get up on the stool. Then she very patiently waits until she pees and cheers for her "YEAH GILLIAN WENT PEE PEE!!" After all the fanfare is over she gives her toilet paper and helps her pull up her pants.

Who needs me around when you have a Finley? Now if I could just teach her to make dinner we would be all set!

My little Red Sox fans!

Its pretty easy to tell from this picture that Gillian is my ham and loves to smile for the camera and Finley is the eccentric girly girl with her pink skirt on . We took off to walmart after this pic and she wore her zebra print boots with it too. She's too cute for words. There is no denying she has her own style!

2 or 12?

Finley and her attitude are going to be the death of me. I am in shock that any 2 year old can act like this. Its like she's a teenager for goodness sakes.

This weekend I heard it all. These are some of her favorite phrases over the past few days. They had us all cracking up.

"No,no,no,no,no" (with her little hand waving in front of my face for maximum drama)

"No,no,no,no,no. NO SING MOM" (don't forget dramatic hand"

"NO, Me not peanut, ME FINLEY"

"Me sick, me need jellybean"

"Me do" (she says this about everything, don't try to help her in any way shape or form unless you have her permission)

And the comment that sent me over the edge this weekend came out of Gillian's mouth

"No Mom, you're fat" (after asking her if I can ride in her wagon)

I informed her that no I wasn't fat and if for any reason they thought I was it was only because I carried their butts for 9 long months! And of course I had to remind them that before I had them I had a smoking hot body! Thank you freaking much. Now who's the teenager?! Brats.


First week of camping season started and we made it out alive! We did have a slight snag when Gillian started coughing so uncontrollably out of no where Saturday night she ended up throwing up all over Gary. Then she fell asleep and slept through the night. Thank goodness. Not sure what caused the coughing but I'm glad it passed quickly.

The girls were so excited to have their own room in the camper, they have always had their own room there but apparently this year it meant something to them. Their cousin visited for a little while and they had to show Ava their room. They played in it for ever. After Gillian threw up I decided to sleep in the bed with them and Finley was ticked when she woke up around 3 to find me laying beside her! And I mean TICKED!

She woke up, grabbed the blankets off me and started yelling "NO MOM MY BED-GET UP" over and over and over and over and freaking over again. It woke everyone up. She was whining and crying and not happy that I was sleeping with her.

I found it so strange since she begs me to sleep with her and Gillian at home? Guess while camping they are just too cool for their mom? Kinda made me a little sad, not gonna lie. I learned my lesson the next night and slept in my own bed. Away from their room.

So besides those 2 little things our nights were good and our days were better. They loved riding around on the golf cart, taking walks, waving at everyone they saw come by, hanging at the beach and eating smores! It was a fun weekend for everyone. I can't wait to go back this weekend.
