Potty Time and the Sprinkler

I will start with a few of the happenings at our house this past weekend. On Saturday, we spent some time together as a family. We were going to go to the park, but as we headed out the door to leave, we saw the hose and sprinkler sitting there and decided that we were just going to play in the yard instead. Dan and I set up the sprinkler and attempted to get Aaron into it. Instead, he ran to my arms. I took him and stood under the edge of the sprinkler so it would hit us as it went by and he hated it. I can't blame him though. The water was ice cold! So, we turned the sprinkler off and let Aaron play with the hose instead. He just stood there and watered the grass...in the same spot... for about 30 minutes or so. He enjoyed washing off our feet too and occasionally would move the hose around. (I got him to spray his belly!! It soaked his diaper. It was hilarious!) After we turned off the hose, Aaron got very upset and threw a fit. He sat there and cried and cried looking out the front window.

We also began the ever fun task of potty training. Well... we are starting to get Aaron used to the potty. We bought him a little Elmo potty seat that goes on our toilet. He is okay with sitting on it, but I'm not sure he has any idea what he's supposed to do on it. His favorite part is that when he gets off, he gets to flush the toilet by himself. Hope he doesn't flush anything down when we are not looking!!!

WOW!!! I can't believe you are starting the potty thing! Bella is just now finally showing interest in it. She sat on the potty for 10 mins the other night bc she would scream when I tried to take her off!! (I finally said do you want to watch Elmo?" and she stopped to say "YEAH") Anyway have fun doing it!! Maybe Aaron will beat Bella at getting it done!!!!
