The Potty Helmet

Well we are fully immersed in Potty Training 101! Little Buddy isn't to thrilled with this new "project", although he loves the idea of the trips to Walmart to get a new car, train, or Rolos. We went to walmart today to get his first prize, a new green hotwheels car. We also bought a bag of Rolos so that we don't have to spend all of our money on $1-$4 prizes everyday.
Part of the potty routine is putting a pull-up or "potty helmet" on your head, if he can convince mommy or dad-d to wear one that is even better. Next part of the routine is to take all the books out of the basket, then read every book, then count them, then stack them, then put them back in basket and repeat!

Most of you know these monsters, but I thought I would add some of the cute shots I got at our Christmas get-together.

Meet the Monsters!

I thought I would start a blog so that family and friends can see what is going on in our crazy life. My 5 Monsters is what I lovingly call my "sweet" children, so the title of this blog is very well suitedMonster #1 or The Boss is in the 8th grade now, she likes t.v., music, and boys!
Monster #2 or Miss Brainy is in the 7th grade, she likes school, volleyball, and music.
Monster #3 or The Chatterbox is in the 4th grade, she loves to do ballet, tap dance and sing along with musicals.
Monster #4 or Badger Boy is in the 2nd grade, he likes to ride his bike and watch cartoons.
Monster #5 or Little Buddy is "2 in a Hab" (Little Buddy language for 2 1/2), he loves the movie cars, coloring, and reading books.
My goal is to post at least weekly, but hopefully more often than that. Check back often to see what crazy things my monsters are up to.
