Little Buddy Ol' Pals

Ashley and Caleb are now the pair at home while their siblings are at school.  I love seeing them giggle together and be cute.  There is this one McDonalds that has a smaller playland.  More for toddlers.  When my boys were little I took them to this one too.  :)

They like to stand at the edge of the slide, stick their heads in and scream into the slide. 

Can you believe Caleb will be one in only 3 weeks?  Ashley will be 3 in 2 weeks. 

Sigh.  I love my diaper babies. 

I am not having luck with potty training Ashley at all.  You would think after six kids that I would get it.  You know?  Like, boom, potty training should be a cinch.  Noooo... they are all so different.  Chaz didn't get his till his younger brother did it.  It took Ryan one try and he was potty trained.  Chaz saw him and went potty at the same time.  1 hour, instantly two kids potty training.  Three kids in diapers was tough so that day I went down to only one kid in a diaper.  So Chaz was 4 and Ryan was 3.  Kyle and Ivy learned at 3.  Something about their third birthday.  It's a charm.  Well, Ashley is turning three in two weeks so I've been trying.  One time I took off her diaper and so much happened everywhere in ten minutes that I put a diaper right back on her. Whew!  Will try again in a few weeks. 

Still, I like their little butts in diapers. Just so cute.

I wish we had a toddler play ground. The last we tried they both climbed to the top of 3 story one and got stuck. Luckily a skinny Mom was there and she climbed up and got them down. So glad to hear that an expert like you has trouble with potty training. Olivia is 3 and isn't yet. We tried for about a day, after 5 accidents in the floor I gave up. Her chiropractor said not to do it until she wasn't constipated anymore. She still is, but its better. And she talks about going potty a LOT--so I figure it is time to try again. I would LOVE to not have 2 in diapers and at the same time--I will be very sad. :-(

LOL. I'm SO not an expert. I probably won't figure things out till they are all raised and out of the house. Then my lightbulb in my head will come on about a lot of things.
