It's Potty Time!

About 3 weeks ago I decided to try and potty train Aris. I thought she was ready. She thought otherwise. After two days of crying when put on the potty and peeing on the floor I was not ready to force the issue. Monday morning you could have heard the angels singing! Aris woke up, asked for big girl panties and well the rest is history. Don't get me wrong, there have been a few accidents here and there, but for the most part she has done great. She looks so small on the potty. I have to help her up and she wants so badly to use the potty without the big girl seat. She has tried only to find that she almost falls in! Her buns are just too tiny. After a few close calls she is now okay to sit on the little seat. I Can hardly wait to have all my girls in panties. It will be so nice to only buy diapers for night time. I'm really glad I didn't push the issue. It's nice to know she is ready for this next stage. It does make me the slightest bit sad that we will no longer have a baby in our home. Sniff sniff.

This was one of the projects on my ever growing list of things to do. Unfortunately it is taking a LOT longer to finish than I had wanted. I realized halfway through getting started that I just didn't have as much fall themed paper as I needed. I had to go and buy more. Poor me. Then I realized when matching papers for the edges and back I still didn't have what I needed in fall patterns which resulted in yet another run to the craft store. The fun part is now I have a ton of great papers to work with and can add to as needed. The downside, not so great on the ol' pocketbook. Seriously though, can a girl have such a thing as too much scrapbook paper?

These are #1 on my list of things to finish this weekend. They will be in the shop hopefully before the end of next week.

Stay tuned for a special shop update announcement. I promise you won't want to miss it!
