Adventures in Potty training

Kamryn has been telling me when she needs to be changed.  She has never liked an unclean diaper, this is why I don't get to sleep through the night.  Her diaper is wet, she is uncomfortable and so I should be too. Right now it is a work on progress.  But she is doing very well.   What's funny is that an 18 month old is not expected to be potty trained and so no one sells underwear for a child that small.  Here's a  picture, enjoy!

Just 2 years ago

Two years ago on the Fourth of July, I tried to put on the Old Navy flag shirt Carol had given me to wear.  It didn't fit.  The next shirt I tried on made me look pregnant, I wasn't so I took that one off.  The next shirt I chose looked fine and the day began. 

Two years ago on the eighth of July, Mark tried to throw his shoe out the car window. Mikaela yell at him not to, I turned my head to look. As I turned back to look at the road I was headed into the back of a Nissan Titan.  Although we were only going 5 miles an hour the damage was extensive and the Pontiac was totaled. 

Two years ago on the Tenth of July. the pain in my knee was unbearable.  I had clearly injured it in the car accident.  I went to urgent care, for a diagnosis and a cure for my knee. Before an x-ray I took a pregnancy test, standard procedure for women of child bearing age.     At urgent care I sent my husband this text:   "Are you sitting down?"  his response was, "No your not".  The Doctor was appalled that I would send my husband a text about being pregnant. The doctor and nurse had a discussion about whether or not we would hear a heart beat. That heart beat filled the room and me with tears.

Two years ago on the 11th of July, I found out that not only was I pregnant but I was 4 months along and it was a girl. 5 months to complete a 9 month project didn't seem enough.

Two years ago on the Twelfth of July, (her birthday) we told Mikaela she wouldn't be getting a dog,  There was an on going bet that, I would be pregnant again before Stephanie and Charlie would be pregnant.  She would get a dog from them or babysit for free.  Stephanie was pregnant at the time, and not telling anyone but family. Our baby was due in December, theirs in March thus putting my pregnancy ahead of hers. Charlie was thrilled, I just saved him a lot of cash.

Little did I know that those few days would change my life completely. A month later Mike and I would be laid off from our jobs.  I would be placed on state insurance and  God would be with us on our next adventure.
