Excited and Scare! #ClothDiaper Potty Training Series #1

Yup we are ready and have been offering for the past month or so! Eeek! About three weeks ago we bought Annaleah a potty and she already knew what to do with it. She had been interested in the big toilet a few months ago, wanting to flush it and put paper in it. Three times I tried getting to sit on it, but she was still unsure as to why she would be sitting and quickly jumped up out of the seat.

So, one day at a time. She's 20 months and we are both not in a rush to get her out of diapers. They (her and her potty) are just acquaintances! Summer time will probably be the best time for us to potty train her and she'll probably be ready at that time.

So yup, aren't you excited for the day that you can say the MOST EXCITING THING you purchased this month is a POTTY!

Check out what other "Potty Essentials" we bought in my "Wordless Wednesday" post from yesterday! This is the one we got, it was in the low $20. Only thing was that the waffer thingy that goes…

GTT: Earth Day + Challenge #ClothDiapers

GOOD MORNING! and Happy Earth Day! Just about to take Eliada (she's now 5!) to school. Check out my Instagram to see what she wanted me to put on there! I will probably do a life update on my Youtube Channel sometime this week, so head on over and subscribe, if you haven't already! And welcome to my new readers, I saw a jump in numbers this past week. If you are new to my channel, welcome! And just to introduce myself, I'm a mom of three girls, married now 10 years, and we use cloth diapers, baby wear, recycle and lots of other "crunchy" things in our family. The girls don't have any electronic toys, I cook at home 80% of the time and we eat dinner together as a family!

Oh and what the heck is GTT? Green Tip Tuesday! It's a weekly series where I share how you and your family can been a bit more nice to mother earth. If you have any crafts, photos, ideas to share, feel free to email me and you can be featured on GTT!

Moving on.... today is Earth Day and…

When I'm 64... HAPPY EASTER!

I don't feel so good! My throat is so itchy and my body is achy. But I hope ya'll are feeling 10x better than I. Yesterday was Easter Sunday! How did you spend your day? We did our traditional morning mass, following by FOOD and more FOOD! lol The girls had a blast and mom sweated all day, haha.

If you might have noticed I haven't blogged or been on many social media sites in..... 40 days. So yup, on Ash Wednesday we all went to dinner after church and talked about what it meant to give up something for 40 days. We all wrote down on a piece of paper a few things we could do to improve our relationship with God and ourselves and what Jesus Christ "gave up" for the Lenten season.

Of course, my oldest said to give up my computer, yes, after a long day in my world, my girls always see me on my laptop. So I knew they would probably suggest that. I do need my laptop for work, so explained that wasn't an option, but we talked and decided "Social Media" was …
