Sunday cuteness

Golly I can't believe how long it had been since I last did one of these.

Generally when we do coloring I prefer to use crayons. It is less mess and I don't have to worry as much about a child running off with a marker to do some extracurricular coloring. When we were making valentines I decided to break out the washable Crayola markers. Harry got so freaked out when he got marker on him. He insisted that I washed his hands off the second that the tiniest bit of marker touched him. I think that the markers are gonna go back in hiding until he stops being a neat freak. It was an interesting change from Evan who loves to play tattoo parlor. While I was looking for that post to link to I found this post, if it does not make you go aww I am not sure what will.

I checked out a potty book for Evan in the hopes that maybe it would raise potty awareness in him. It is titled Once Upon A Potty. Evan is not really more into potty training but he enjoys having a laugh at the pictures of the boy's "wee-wee". I have told him that it is not polite to laugh at another guy's manly parts, but of course I am ignored as he giggles away.

On a side note, if anyone has good potty training book recommendations (for kids, I already know how to go on the potty) I am open. I have taught my kids the proper anatomical names for their body parts, so I was rather annoyed that the book used the word "wee-wee" instead of the proper name.

If you were wondering what happened to my lovely purple sock I am sad to announce that it has been the victim of poor planning. I did not read the yardage requirements in the pattern. I have 275 and the pattern called for 400 so I would have been able to make one sock and maybe a few inches of another even with my shorter cuff. The poor sock had to be frogged. I have a much shorter sock with short row heels in mind. I have been wanting to try a short row heel and I was not really in love with how the flap heel was looking with the yarn colors.

Joanna Cole has some GREAT potty training books for kids. Of course, what do I know? We're still not completely trained. :-)

Everybody Poops is a fun potty book. I substitute the "wee wee" words for the right ones. It drives me insane when they use baby-ish names for body parts ... Shall we call our heart a boom-boom and our arms, swingies?!?!

Second recommendation on Everybody Poops.

If Evan is an Elmo guy, we found a DVD at our library called "Elmo's Potty Time." It doesn't talk anatomy, but they use lots of different words for the product.

We had "The Potty Book for Girls" over here. There is a boy version, but I'm not sure if it's any good but might be worth taking a look at.

The pictures of Harry are SO CUTE!!! I just adore pictures of babies in bathtubs. I've got some of Lance that I would love to post, but due to the fear of some unscrupulous person using pictures of my adorable child for disgusting purposes, I have refrained.
