Dimes Nickels and Pennys

Two things i learned today:

1. Dimes, Nickels, and Pennys fit UNDER the power window controls in your car-Yes those little 
things u use one finger to click up and down to make the windows go up and down

2. How to get Dimes, Nickels and Pennys OUT FROM UNDER the little controls-a screw driver,
 some tweezers and a lot of patience

THANK YOU BUG, without you i can say i probably would not be that much smarter today :/

I am going to blunt and just say it, the Bug is playing me! Bug 1 Momma Bug 0 BUT i will be consistent and win the battle...i am determined. 

I have been sitting this black man on the pot  and he pee's but wont poop.  He wont tell me when he has to pee though he just pee's sometimes when he is there.  WELL now he knows poop is on his butt when he does poop, so he he will come to you with his butt facing you and look at you then say "apoo".  I am so frustrated because he will be on the pot and wont poo, but he know what poo feels like and doesn't want it on his butt!

So his teacher suggested i put underwear on him.  Seeing as the Bug is very particular and doesn't care to be dirty maybe poo'ing and pee'ing in underpants would a step in the right direction of getting him to poo and pee in the pot.  SO this weekend i put underwear on him...he flipped out when he saw cars on is butt.  He was so excited he did a little dance and everything.  But it didn't work at all. 

Next weekend we will go out at it again because like i told you i am determined to get this smart black man to pee and poop on the pot!

Relocated to the hall way

We are working on the Bug self soothing still!  So at night time when it is bed time i lay him down in his bed give him kisses and tuck him in.  He hates having to sleep alone. 

So much that the other night he protested in fake crys and then stopped 2 minutes in.  I was ecstatic! i felt we were getting somewhere with this self soothing thing.  Then 30 minutes later i am sitting in the front room and hear snores real close.  I figured he fell asleep at the foot of his bed and the door was open so it was louder for that reason.  I did not pay it any mind and i finished doing what i was doing.  When i as done i go up to go to my room and there i found my Bug laying in the hall way sleep.  Not only was he laying in the hallway BUT he had relocated all his stuff in the hallway!  He moved his favorite pillow, his blanket and his football pillow, closed his door and went to sleep.  Funniest thing i have ever seen..but now i am curious why doesn't he care for his room or his bed?

Merry Christmas!

Im not sure if i will be blogging before the holiday so let me say this now...from our house to yours i hope everyone who stops by our blog has a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New year! 

Christmas Tree Farm

After Thanksgiving we ventured to a Christmas tree farm not to far away.  It was awesome!  It was a local fun event that was free to get into and the Bugs God Mommy joined us for the day with her camera!  You know what that meant we got some EXCELLENT Christmas photo time!  

We got to the park and the bug ran into the petting zoo.  He chased the turkeys and chickens as the goats tried to eat his God Mommy and I.  We saw chickens, even chickens with feathers on their feet or as God Mommy said "these chickens have bell bottoms on their legs".  The bug was not to into the bunny's or the big tortoise but made sure he had a conversation with the horse waving and saying hi! 

Then we made our way to ride the pony's.  He LOVED riding the pony's even though he just went in a circle for like 5 minutes! There was games and rides there too.  My bug was not into the slides, or other rides and i do not know why because they are the same inflatable toys he plays on at pump it up.  We did shove him in the little kid mickey mouse bounce house.  He kept sliding out and the attendant was really good with kids and he started to play with him so the bug stayed in for a short while.  He then saw these John Deer cars in a little pin.  He drove one but he could not get the concept of steering down, so he would make his way to one end of the pin and crash and then try to turn the car around.  That attendant was not so great so we cut that ride down in time.  

The bug got to see the Christmas trees and run through them, but then we realized it was close to nap time as he lost his focus and listening ears, so we cut our trip short and headed toward the exit.  THEN we saw the gift store.  This might have been my favorite little small business Christmas store i have ever seen.  Just Christmas stuff everywhere and about almost everything looked homemade.   

The day was amazing and the bug fell asleep as soon as we got on the freeway to go home.  Pictures, animals, rides, and we ended it by having a treat at sonic, that's when the bug magically woke up to eat all my tots.  This day might become a tradition as the years pass by.
