Tuesdays Tidbits

Thought I'd let you all know what my two crazy kids are up to these days. Because we all know they are crazy and sure keep me busy!!
CJ had his very first visit to the dentist office last week. Yes, I put it off for a few years because of how nasty he can get when anybody gets near him. I still have to cut the child's hair at home b/c he cries when anyone attempts to cut his hair. Surprisingly he did very well. He loved every minute of it, so I've come to the conclusion that he's not my kid. I absolutely hate the dentist, I'm lucky if I get the nerve to go once every 2 years. Not that I don't have an awesome dentist, I have a great one. I mean he's gotta be a saint if he can impress CJ enough to want to see the dentist every day, right?! But, I just have very sensitive teeth and gums and it's always so tortorous for me. So CJ will go back in 6 months, and I'll go back next week to get TWO cavaties filled. That's right folks, although I brush my teeth every day and floss twice a day I still managed to have two very small cavaties. CJ had none, thank god. I'd rather have them than him though.
Ella is finally starting to say more words. Still waiting for her to put two words together though. Occasionally she will, but for the most part she's so darn stubborn she doesn't want you telling her to do ANYthing!!! She can gallop now and it is the funniest thing I have ever seen. It's like watching a horse try to skip!! I love it.
CJ starts Kindergarten in about 3 weeks. I can hardly believe it. I'm excited for this new journey for him, but sad at the same time. My baby is growing up and it's almost like he won't need me as much because he'll be gone all day long now.
Ella is currently obsessed with the library and thankfully she has learned to be quiet there as well now. Before she would be so excited she would just shriek and we would have to leave. Now she loves to choose Thomas the Train books and movies.
She is also starting to show some interest in the potty but never wants to sit long enough to actually go. I'm thinking I'll bring the little potty up later this week, wash it out and put it in the bathroom and see if that sparks more of an interest. She's going to be tough to potty train b/c she hates to have her diaper changed. She'd sit in a poopy diaper all day long if she could, it really just doesn't bother her and she's always been that way.
That's it for now!!! More to come.
