I found a weakness

I have found a way to make Evan listen!
I've found the weakness, now it's time to exploit it!

Simple right but I was surprised at how well it works? He doesn't listen...take away a toy. He doesn't do as he's told...take away a toy. It's got to be a big one of course, a favorite. His Dodge dancing truck, his bike, his Thomus train stuff, his Cars, cars etc.

So far he's helped clean his play room. Stayed in the yard and not gone out the front door. (I took away his bike for the day for that one, so far no more making a brake for it.

Today we started the no holds bard potty training. He's in big boy underpants (super cute) no more pull-ups until bed time. I'm just dealing with the laundry. Since Earl's off work this week there's an extra set of eyes and ears, so I thought it was a good week to really work at it. It simply means bringing extra cloths everywhere we go, along with a safeway bag for peepee cloths of course. So far today he hasn't gone on the potty, but he tells us he's wet, so at least he's uncomfortable enough to not want to do it again, and again, and again.

We now had to offer money (pennies) as a reward. He loves dropping coins into his piggy bank, so we thought we would give that a try to motivate him. I'm planning on giving him a plastic baggy for his back pack so that when we're out he can put his pennies in the baggy and load them when we get home.

Well that's really all my news. I'll keep you updated on my potty and discipline battle.

Have a good day!

Christmas Tree?

Why a picture of a Christmas Tree in June?!?!
Well I have Christmas on my mind since yesterday.
I goofed. During my ultrasound yesterday I was told my baby is only at 13 weeks! So that moves my due date to good old Dec 26! Yup, I'm going to be fat, grumpy, and tired right when jolly old Santa should be sliding down our chimney to deliver his presents.
Oh well what will be will be. The ultra sound went great! The new clinic in St A was fantastic! The ppl where so nice, they where super quick too. I was there for maybe a total of 25 min! I couldn't see the sex of the baby of course since I wasn't at the 15 weeks I thought I was. My next appointment is on Aug 4th, so here's hoping that baby decides to be in the right position for a peek. Lavender or Blue paint. I just need to know!
Well that's it for me today, have a good one ladies.

The new Doc

Well I had my first doctors appointment on Tues. I'm sorry I didn't write sooner but Earl has been off all week, so things have been busy.

Okay he's old, like really old, with a slit British or maybe Australian accent. He also has a student Doctor with him right now and he was nice. The only bad thing is its two men looking up my tulip instead of just one, oh and at the same time too. Yup, that's one to many if you ask me.

I heard babies heart beat for the first time which does prove once and for all that there is in fact a baby in there. It's seems do be doing very well since it's heart is beating and I've already has some bubble type feelings (movement) or maybe it was gas, oh well I'm going to call it movement. Dr Haskins said my odds for a miscarriage are down to like 2 percent now that there is an established heart beat, so that was a load off my mind.

He was also very good at telling me what to expect. He said expect a more jiggly tummy then before. (I kind of knew that one) Expect more discharge (sorry gross I know) Expect more hip and back pain (Yup I've felt that one) Also expect more tummy pain, even when you roll over in bed you will experience more stabbing like pains. (That was a good one to hear, because I was wondering about it.)

There is also a new question this time around. Does your family have a history of Heart Disease, Diabetes blah, blah, blah. Have you had chicken pox? Are you taking your vitamins? Is there any chance you are related to your babies father? WHAT! I had to repeat the question to make sure I heard him right. I guess there's more incest going on these days...weird...gross...weird.

Well that's it for me today. I have my first ultra sound on Tues, then another on July 20th...ish. I'll keep you posted.

Have a good one ladies.
