October Fun

October has kept the Baxter family busy, as usual.   We attended many football games to watch Colton & Dylan play, went to a zoo, attended 2 parades and even went to a princess birthday party!    This weekend, we will be celebrating Orphan Sunday at our church with a program and movie on our journey to bring Ellie home.  If you are local, we'd love to have you.  Contact me for information.

Sitting for a split second!

That's our girl -- football in one hand
and a purse in the other.

Potty Talk

Ellie getting a deep-condition treatment
Ahhh.. the mother of 2 toddlers (and 2 teenagers) is wonderfully busy, beautifully challenging and sometimes a total hoot.  I caught myself saying things that I had to laugh out loud about, literally.  I had to start writing them down. 

Faith "hiding" in a trash can
No... I'm not swearing, (although some days I'm tempted)... The title Potty Talk comes from the fact that most of my little phrases have to do with bathroom items and issues.   The girls tend to get into trouble if the bathroom door is left open or while I'm bathing them.  I find myself saying thing that just don't sound right after I say them.... all while listening to the giggles of two little girls knowing they are doing something they are not supposed to be doing. 

I find myself saying things like: 

  •  Ewww don't put that in your mouth
  • No Faith, that's Dylan's toothbrush 
  • Bye-bye poopie
  • Ellie, get outta the's yucky and we don't eat it! 
  • Get back here, naked girl!
  • That's a brush for the toilet, not your teeth.
  • Ewww.. who pee'd on the rug
  • No... we don't stand in the potty (potty-chair).
and one that's probably said daily . . .
  • Oh my goodness... What a mess!  

I can only imagine what the neighbors think!!!  :)
