Hello all! I hope you had a very lovely weekend. My weekend was filled with just great things. And not the kind of things you can buy (well, one of them you can.) I learned a few things this weekend.
I learned that my husband is a genius. Yes, I said it. He is smarter than the average bear. You see, we have been working on potty training. I know they will do it when they do it. And that boys take longer. Still, that didn't stop me from making a goal in my head: age 3. Well, sweethearts, age 3 is rapidly coming down the track (hahahhaha!!) and we are still in pullups. He had one aspect of it down... always peed. It was just the other.... okay, I will say it...poop! He would not poop unless I just caught him at the right time. We were having major issues.. their were tears... bribing.... yelling... some things were thrown.... nothing was working. So, my GENIUS husband told baby hughes... if you go on the potty, we will take you to see a caboose. Every time you go.
Let's just say that we have high fived this caboose several times this weekend! At one of the trips, Mr. Hughes looked over at me and said... so, our boy really loves trains. Yes, yes he does. That is another lesson I learned. How much my baby loves trains. He takes this deal quite seriously... he asks for a dollar as well ( previous deal struck.) And we give in (since we are enabling parents and he is an only child.) We aren't saving any money on the pullups since we are giving him a dollar and a car trip at least once a day. The thing is though, I can see it clicked. And, he is so excited and proud. The house is a happier place. I also learned that while I love being right and finding the perfect solution to problems, especially with our child, I am okay with not being the one that thought of it. I concede to Mr. Hughes.
I have also learned that with me, one obsession turns into another... got the camper (she is looking pretty spiffy too... needs just a bit more spiff!) and then I move on to another. Dollhouses!!! I have had this saved in one of my many folders on my desktop before I found pinterest. Then I re-found it on there... now I am obsessing again!! The above idea? Now that is something I wish I would have thought of first. Mr. Hughes went to the flea market without us and I begged him to find me an old wooden dollhouse. I have plans, ladies. Big plans! I really, really want a dollhouse. Trust me... it is a good idea. So, if any of you has a wooden dollhouse, please, give it to me!!
And I just learned in the past 20 minutes that I adore Nutella. Why did I wait 32 years to try it? Why? It was always right next to the peanut butter... I remember passing it and wondering what the heck it was... I blame my parents. They failed me *wink*
Okay, I need to sort of clean up the various messes in the house. I have been bff's with the sewing machine all weekend long. I will show you some of the new creations this week! (muahhahahaha! that is an evil laugh!)
bye for now!
