Well guess what folks??
It's that time again!!
As of today, the kids are officially "Off Track" for three whole weeks!
Do you remember how bored the poor little darlings were the last time?
And how I so kindly arranged for all sorts of fun activities to keep them busy?
(Do you think I could come up with any more links?)
Well, I have, yet again, planned some very fun and educational activities that
#1 on my list................Plant and care for a garden.
This is something we have never done before. When I told the kids about this plan, the were ever so excited!
Well, maybe excited might be too strong of a word to describe their feelings on the subject.
Then CJ made a very good observation.
"Mom..........um............ we don't really know anything about planting a garden."
to which I reply "The internet is such a wonderful thing! Go google how to grow a garden!"
Does anyone know where we could find the book "Gardening for dummies?"
Does such a book even exist?
#2 on my list..................
Are you ready?
It's a good one!
I'm feeling rather clever right now!
Here it is!!!
#2. I will have my three oldest kids potty train Max!
I thought it was a fabulous idea, but when I told the kids that they would be doing this, they gave me strange looks and made these weird whiny noises.
CJ even had the audacity to ask "Why. Would we. Want. To do. That?"
To which I replied "Because it will be such an incredible bonding experience between you two as brothers!"
CJ wasn't buying it. He said, "I feel bonded enough to him already."
I thought I was being really clever. If they all worked together as a team, they could have Max out of diapers in no time at all!
I just think that, as kids themselves, they might have some good ideas on how to motivate little Max to use the potty.
Okay, so do you want to know the real reason I want them to do the potty training?
I potty trained all three of them. Three stubborn, diaper lovin' little tots. Do you know how much poop that is?
What do you think? Isn't this a fantabulous idea?
P.S. To my sister in law. If this works, I will let you borrow my kids for a few days (or longer) to help you with potty training that cute little niece of mine!
Am I nice or what?
