in the 10's.

this morning, while bieber played at the strong house,
max and i went to costco.
and then to the bank.
where i opened her first savings account.
it was my favorite part of our day.
i put her up in the chair.
and we got her all set up.
i still have the one my parents opened for me back in the early 80's.
so will we say we opened hers in the 10's??
which was the temperature outside today too.
but that's not with the wind chill.
i think we're in the negative 10's with the wind chill.
brrrrr.
...
oh,
and by 4:30pm potty training was bagged.
due to the hysterical crying of bieber,
begging to have his diapers back.
with big crocodile tears.
b/c he didn't want to go to the potty anymore.
or wear underwear.
anymore.
game off.

Poor Beiber.
Or Bieber. However you spell that.
I still need to get my kids' savings accounts opened. Gah!

Bieber will let you know when he's ready to try again!

Does she have a little bank book, too? I remember having weekly (or monthly?) banking in elementary school. We have a 529 college account set up for Tyler, but no actual bank account yet.

Do you believe in bribery? If so potty treats are fantastic!

My DIL bought one of those gum ball machines and let him use it every time he peed in the potty.

How old is he again? I waited until my boys were at least 2 1/2 and usually 2 3/4. Then it went fast!

It's true that he will let you know when he is ready! My little guy was ready before I even was, but it was a piece of cake because he was the one that was wanting to do it! Good call on calling it quits!
