It's Potty Time...Take 2.

I have done A LOT of research and have finally decided to use these potty training pants. They cost about $90 for 12 pair and I will probably end up getting 24 pair of them. They are waterproof and can be used at night and naptime. I am hoping this will ease my anxiety. I believe my kids have been ready to be potty trained for quite some time BUT Mommy on the other hand has been dreading it BIG TIME. I have read many other quad mom's experience in potty training and frankly it just made me more scared!

But here goes nothing, I just ordered the pants and plan to do the 3 day method as soon as they get here. Please please please pray for me!

I wanna go home...

Yesterday Edi told me she wanted to go home. She wanted to go to our old house where we had a beach and chicken and fries and friend. She said she missed Chloe and Rylee at church. Then Sean chimed in and said he wanted to go back to Alabama.

Obviously this broke my heart. For several minutes they all taked about walking on the beach our church and friend that we have there. Hopefully we will be able to go there for a visit in the near future. In the meantime we will strive to make their experience in our new home one they will talk about when we move to the next one!

Grandma, Edi, Sean, Henry, and Sophia enjoying a walk on the beach. Oh and did I mention this is in like January. Yeah, it was in the 60s and we were freezing. Ha. I am wondering what we are going to do this winter with a ton of snow and temps that drop below zero. Eeeeeeck!!

Sometimes I feel like Cinderella.

Not the beautiful Princess one but the ragged work all-the-time one.

Everyday is the same. Breakfast, laundry, lunch, laundry, supper, sweeping, dusting, mopping, dishes, etc. Only instead of hearing people yelling Cinderella. I hear, "MOMMY!"

Two of a Kind



This totally cracks me up!

Could they be any cuter?


The kids are facinated with Choo Choo Trains.

The highlight of any day is when they get to ride one. They ask almost everyday if we can go to the Zoo or the Mall to ride the Train. We do try to take them a couple of time a least!

Attack of the...Butterfly?!?

We were finally able so see the Butterfly Exhibit over Memorial Day weekend at our local Zoo.

I was very excited to see it.

We had NO idea they were so scary! We bought our tickets and went into the building. I snapped two pictures and a big blue butterfly flew over Edi's head and that was the end. She screamed and cried because that mean butterfly tried to get her. So out we went and she is forever scarred. For the rest of the day Henry kept saying, "Edi is scared of the butterflies."

NEVER a dull moment.
