On my way to Nana's

Finally, pictures from our trip. Over the next few days I'll be posting pictures and videos from our trip to Texas. This first set is all about the airplane. This was Hayden's third time on a plane but, really the only one where we really got to get him involved. Plus, Daddy was with us which made it more exciting. A few months back I had bought Hayden his own luggage, and let me tell you that boy sure did think he was something else. We got so many compliments on his "I'm on my way to Nana's" shirt, everyone loved it. It was definitely a big hit at the airport. Hayden was absolutely wonderful on the plane and at the airport, we couldn't have asked for a better kid.

We're Home!

We got home from Texas this afternoon. We had a fabulous trip. We are all exhausted! We will miss everyone so much but, are glad to be home at the same time. I have pictures and videos to post, I'll do it later. Right now you can find me on the screen porch with my family. It is gorgeous outside. Oh, how I love North Carolina's changing seasons.

For Aunt Jeni

I Did Not!

I got this from a blog I read daily and thought it was a cute idea. It proves we are all imperfect parents.

I did not let my son wear his pajamas all day long. I did not let him roam the house in only his pajama top and nothing else until he went stinky in the potty.

I did not put baby powder in my hair to mask the oiliness when I went to the grocery store because I was too lazy to take a shower.

I did not just make oiliness a word. ( I just did spell check and apparently oiliness is a word)

I did not forget to plug my phone in for the 18th day in a row and let it go dead.

I did not let my husband feed our son popcorn and ice cream for lunch. And I most certainly did not let him eat croutons for a snack because he wanted them.

I did not eat McDonalds for lunch even though I said I would not eat fast food. I did not, not tell my husband that I ate McDonalds for lunch when he asked if I had already eaten lunch.

I did not buy 6 bottles of our favorite bbq sauce today b/c it was on sale.

And I most certaintly did not stay in bed late today and let Greg and Hayden fend for themselves.

What did you not do today?

Yep that's me, Lazy. As in Lazy Blogger and Lazy Picture Taker. I get in these moods sometimes. I don't know why I just do.

Really the truth is that I've been in a horrible mood and haven't felt like taking pictures or blogging.

I'm just a grump really. And my favorite song from Noggin that I sing to Hayden when he's a grump best describes how I feel.

We leave for Texas in about a week. And I'm not grumpy about that, I'm actually very excited. Over the weekend Hayden has decided to regress a little bit in the potty training area. I worked so hard that it just frustrates me so much. However, we will just go back to square one of our potty training boot camp. And I'll have to drill it in his head again. He's doing ok for the most part he's just having a few more accidents than I would like to see.

Again, sorry for the lazy blogging, when I get back from Texas I'll have tons of pictures!

Thank You Jenn

Jenn at I hate Whine gave me another little bloggy award. She's always thinking of me when it comes to these things. The rules of this one are to give it back to the people that have been following you the longest and one person from another country. Well, Jenn is really the only blogger that follows me on a daily basis and I'm not sure that there are any that follow me from another country that blog. Oh, except Adria! Since Jenn and Adria are the only ones that really follow me and Jenn has already gotten it I give it to Adria at Taylor Times. I have tons of family that follow the blog but, they don't write their own. So, thanks to everyone that has read from the beginning and started later. I've really enjoyed chronicling our lives as Hayden has grown. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Hayden says

Hayden: "mommy what is that" (pointing to my face)

Me : "mommy's face is peeling"

Hayden: "hmmm what is that?" (pointing to my face again)

Me: "mommy's face is peeling because she got to much sun"

Hayden: "icky, it's kind of icky"

Me: "thanks"

Hayden: "don't like it, it's really gross"

Can I have your attention...please!

Hayden is potty trained. For the last 3 days he has gone potty by himself without being reminded, bribed, or threatened to go (Ok, well maybe Nana bribed him just a little bit). He has been accident free for 3 days...did you hear me...3 DAYS! We officially have a big boy. He has been staying dry during naps and even throughout the entire night.
I'm so happy I could scream it from the roof tops. The last few weeks have been very tiring and stressful but completely worth it. Hooray for no more diapers!!!
