Oh the potty training stage. Fun to see them master a new skill, but oh so wonderful when it is all over. Thanks for the liquid minerals idea. I have actually been looking into them for a while. I just ordered me some. I also started excercising again this week and it has already started helping me have a bit more energy. I need to find myself a smoothie maker like yours. I really need to try these green smoothies of your moms.
I so love to keep in touch with you. Just FYI, Laura is expecting her third child in June, and Jenny is expecting her second in May.

Good job, both Brittany and Averie! This is universally a magnanimous parental test of patience. However, I've been told that bribery seems to be an effective method.

That is too cute! You are good. Trevor has been ready for a while.. but I just have been too busy to get it done. I also admit I'm not eager to spend a handful of days doing nothing but that!!! Way to go!
