Jack's Potty Training - Update

Around 6 months ago now I first started to potty train Jack. This week - for the first time - he has gone ALL WEEK with clean dry pants! Whooohoooo!

Ok. so if you don't have kids that will leave you pretty cold, but for us mums (and dads) it is a big deal. We still need to remind him sometimes - before meal, before we go out etc - but this week he's been brill, even going on the toilet by himself not just the potty.

I'm thinking, if we get another week or so like this I'll start trying him over night in pants instead of nappy-pants. He has a potty in his room, and a roll of toilet paper. He uses it sometimes if he is playing in his room by him self. I'm feeling optimistic!

It's another important milestone. At the risk of tempting fate I'd say he was dry now during the day. He's talking fluently too and people (not just family) can understand him. He has bags of confidence and loves to play out with the other kids on the street even though they are all at least 2 years older than him.

Can't believe he's going to be starting nursery in September....It's only 4 months away! He's so grown up!

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
