Sam is off from school this week for March Break. With all the birthday posts, I haven't been posting about our days in a timely fashion at all :) Friday was the first day of the break. We allowed both the kids to stay up later on Thursday night because I assumed they would sleep in and then I could too. However, they defied the laws of sleeping in and were both up at 7am. Blah. Thankfully, Dave kept them for the morning and I was able to sleep in until 9am. Yay!
Then Rachel had a major fit about wearing a diaper. "I am big. I wear underwear." Okay then... So Rachel wore underwear for about two hours, sitting on the potty every ten minutes or so, and getting a couple of Smarties every time she sat. And then she had three accidents in a row in about half an hour and I was out of patience. Thankfully she agreed to wear a diaper again. But I think potty training has begun. Wish me luck, a lot of patience, and a supply of clean rags! (And ideally a success at some point -- we haven't had one of those yet, just a few more accidents.)
And then, in another March Break miracle, it was +3 outside and so we went on the first bike ride of the spring. Whooo hooo!!! (Don't be fooled by the fact that Rachel is alone on the tricycle -- I had to push her the entire time.)
And that's how our first day of March Break went.
