Potty Training Accomplishment

Just a quick update on Kole Freedom, my 3 yr old who had the "poopy in the potty" issues.  Well, we have reached VICTORY!!!

Shortly after his third birthday we conquered the big feat.  My very patient and consistent husband took our little boy into the bathroom and sat with him for over an hour so he could do his business.  I, personally, had to battle the temptation to not interrupt the process.  I wanted to run into the bathroom when I would hear Kole screaming and crying because he didn't want to go.  I wanted to stop my husband and say "let's just give him the diaper!" or "he'll figure it out one day soon."  Nope!!  I had to resist this temptation and pray, pray, pray for me and for Kole.  My husband just sat with him and read him books.  Finally, there was victory and he went!!  Yay!!  Now, it wasn't defeated that first night.  My patient husband had to repeat this for the next few nights.  It became less and less of a struggle each night.  Then finally the victory came.

Now, he loves going poopy in the toilet!!  He insist that he has to go EVERY time he has to use the potty.  I had to explain to him that we don't have to go every time.  He realized this after he kept straining and nothing was coming out.  :)  

Kole's attitude has gotten much better.  He is happier and is eating so much better.  You see, he was holding it as long as he could.  This was making him a miserable little guy.  Life with my boy these past few weeks has been a pleasure. 

 
(Sorry for the blurry picture.  This was the best I could get of him before he jumped off the toilet)

Thanksgiving at home: First time in 18 years

Let's just say that we didn't plan to spend Thanksgiving at home this year. I think the last time we celebrated in our own home was back when Moriah was a baby.  Yeah...that's about 18 years ago or so.  Let me tell you....W e absolutely loved it! Here's a little run down on how our plans were miscommunicated. You see...Donnie and I didn't communicate our Thanksgiving plans very well this year.  He had forgotten that we had spent Thanksgiving with his side of the family last year so that meant it was time to drive up to Jacksonville and spend time with my side of the family.  With not much talk of our T hanksgiving plans, I hear from the kids that he t old brother or dad not sure who that we would be heading down to see them Thanksgiving.    This conversation happened just a few weeks before Thanksgiving.  Kids: Hey where are we going for Thanksgiving this year? Me: Ummm....I think it's Jax.   One of the kids:  I thi
