Finally I am out of most of my maternity clothes and M is out of her 0-3 month clothes. It is so nice to finally get rid of my maternity clothes. I think I have spent 4 out of the last 5 years in them. With them gone I am currently down to, 2 pairs of pants, a skirt and 5 shirts. Not much but it will do until I loose another 20 lbs so I can get down near a semi-normal weight.
I unpacked a box last week. I found some really cute Clarks I had bought in 2006. The week before I was starting to feel bummed because I donated my boots when we moved here almost 3 years ago, but the clarks I found are so much nicer. I must have picked them over the boots at the time. My mom bought the kids new clothes I need to cut down on things there too. I think I am going to have a trunk full of clothes to donate after the holidays.

Reading & Potty Training

So this week I figured out Z (who is almost 4.5 years old) is at a 2nd grade guided reading level. In other words she reads like your average 1st grader is probably reading right now. She reads everything. We were sitting at a stop light and she got quiet then about 15 seconds later, "Mama, does that say Round Table? Mama was is Round Table?"

I switched to underware for G this week...he does fine if I force him to use the potty every 2 hours, but he just assume pee himself and walk around wet. He doesn't stay dry at night either, so I think I may take a break & then try again later. Boys....they just don't care.....
