christmas jar

We received a fun and anonymous gift this year in our stockings, a jar full of someone's change. I would like to thank whomever was thoughtful enough to think of us.

twist of fate

So this morning I sat Enoch on the toilet, just for fun. Didn't even think to check the potty after.
It wasn't until later when I stuck Levi on it, that I saw there was PEE in it!! How can my 16 month old be more successful than my 3 year-old? It doesn't make any sense.
Let's hope Santa gives me for Christmas whay I asked for this year.... a potty trained boy. But maybe it'll be Enoch instead of Levi.

Here is Levi on centre stage....

enoch update

Due to the CUPE strike, we have been unable to get Enoch in to see his pediatrician until now.... he was weighed today, and things look good. A full 21 pounds! (Some of you with monsters for children/grandchildren are laughing, I am sure). However, the doctor is now worried about his height. We just cant ever seem to win. Maybe Josh should take him in next time, and then they will stop worrying.

does this make sense to anyone?

Q: Why don't you like to colour, Levi?

A: Because.

Q: Well, how come?

A: Because it hurts my toes.

prayer power

Here is an example of one of Levi's prayers. I usually help him, and he repeats what I say.

Mom: Dear Heavenly Father
Levi: repeat

Mom: Thank-you for my family
Levi: repeat

Mom: Thank-you for my blanket
Levi: repeat

Mom: Thank-you for my cars
Levi: repeat

Mom: Help me be nice to Enoch
Levi: repeat

Mom: Help me go pee in the potty
Levi: I don't want to go pee in the potty.............

That is when we have to wrap things up. On one hand I should be glad that I have proof that Levi actually wants to be nice to Enoch. On the other, I worry if Levi's faith is stronger than mine, and which prayer will be answered; mine or his.
