Tuesday was my 14th wedding anniversary. I can hardly believe that Sione and I have married for 14 years! It has been a wonderful 14 years, no doubt about it. I love him and can’t imagine anyone better suited to me. He continually inspires me to become better and more by his example to do the same. He has been very supportive of all of my quirky quirks like homeschooling, homebirthing, wanting lots and lots of books, etc. He is great looking, just a nice bonus for me and the kids since he has passed on such great genes for them. LOL. Yup! I am one blessed woman!
On another note I have been toilet training my two youngest. I hadn’t been really doing much with Tevita because I was either very busy, something would have happened that would have disrupted life and I wanted it to get back to “normal” or he would keep insisting he was a baby like Losahina (he likes to tell everyone that Losahina is his best friend. Which, as far as I can see, she is). So when I had decided that life was “normal” after moving down here I thought I would try working with Losahina, too. That way Losahina wasn’t a baby in diapers either. It has been a few weeks now, and they are both doing great. I wasn’t sure how Losahina would do. I have never tried to toilet train a just barely 2 year old before. She has been doing wonderfully. Since I am bribing with chocolate chips it is fun to hear her come tell me that she “up a toilet for happy chip.” I still put a diaper on them at night, but they get an extra chocolate chip in the morning if they keep their diaper clean. They are doing great. I wonder when I will get comfortable enough to let them try it without the diapers. Hmmmmmmmmm. I’ll have to think about that one. We cosleep, so I would hate to wake up to something unpleasant because I tried it too soon, lol.
Losahina has fallen in LOVE with Curious George. I’m not sure why, but she has. We don’t watch TV, so she has only seen the show at my mom’s house. When my sister Heather took my 4 oldest on auntie dates 2 years ago we ended up with two Curious George dolls from Lagoon. They have literally been around since she was born. The past week she has carried them around talking about “George” and has even slept with them sometimes. Yesterday she came up to me with one in her arms and was telling me “T-bone friend, Caio friend, Jordan friend, George friend.” Yup, her best friends are apparently her brother, two of her cousins, and a stuffed animal. Aaahh, she makes me smile.
Stand for Something.
