1st Grade

So I'm a little behind...Kai started 1st grade on August 9th...and I'm just now blogging about it. That's bad I know!

Kai has started 1st grade at a different school than Kindergarten but he is loving it. He has embraced it so well and loving 1st grade. He's moving in this direction of transition from little boy to big boy and he is starting to come home with details of his day instead of the Kindergarten answer...I forgot! It's getting hard to adjust to but I'm loving it that is for sure!

He loves this school because he gets to see his buddies Andrew & Ben at lunch and on the playground.

Forever My Baby

Reed is 2...he will be 3 in November. We just started Potty Training this past week and it's been tough. Reed is very hard headed but in this "I'm going to outsmart you" kind of way.

The only way we could get him to even agree to sit on the potty was by bribing him with a box full of candy and toys to reward each potty occurrence. A few days went by and he soon caught on.

One occurrence, he was sitting on the potty and he farted...well "parted" as he would say. As soon as he "parted" he pointed to a hotwheel in the prize bowl and stated he wanted dat one! I reminded him he doesn't get anything for just a "part" he needs to put pee pee or poo in the potty.

Soo...

Next occurrence he got right back on the potty and starting grunting until his face was red but nothing was happening. I told him that it was ok that nothing happens we can try again next time. He then told me, "No! I Need pee pee to get potty pize!"

Reed is doing a good job but accidents happen you know. I tell him each time that accidents are ok but we need to try harder and not go in our pants. He tells me "I no go pee pee in pants...no more!" But he doesn't keep his word!

Until...

Today. My mom reported that he has been accident free all day! Telling her each time he has to go. I'm so proud of him. Going to the potty is such a big boy step and although I'm uber excited for him I'm also sad that he's growing up and I no longer have my little baby.

But as I remind both of my boys...they will both be my babies forever and ever!
