My not so little baby

Potty training woes

It drives me NUTS how all the books/articles/blog posts go on and on about not pushing your child to potty train... but NEVER mentions what to do if your young 2 year old is roughly the size of a kindergartener and literally does not fit into diapers any more. I guess it's time to start looking at medical supply stores?? We are going to try potty training next week... we will see...

Easy Rolo cookies

1 package devils food cake mix
1/3 cup oil
2 eggs

Stir until combined.

Roll dough in small balls around Rolo candies (1 per ball).

Bake 350* for 8-10 minutes.

Bonus: unwrapping candies are great for fine motor skills!

Third breakfast

A benefit of waking up at 5 am... multiple breakfasts.

Sunday Birthday parties and keeping the Sabbath holy

As P gets older, he's getting more bday party invitations. Some of them are on Sunday. We decided on a set of guidelines for Sunday birthday parties.
1) we must be able to attend the party as a family
2) the party must be held at the hosts home (no Monkey Joe's, parks, etc)
3) parties cannot interfere with church attendance

We have had people over for cake on Sunday and it's always been a family centered  event. We don't have any family in the area, so it's either celebrate alone, or invite our adopted "aunts/uncles" and "cousins" over.

What does your family do?

I hate that I have to miss out on family events because I'm too sick to travel.

Stuff no one tells you when you're diagnosed with RA.

Falling asleep around here is about as safe as falling asleep at a frat party.
