More Erbe Dance Moves

video What I love about this video is Sebastian being so irritated with Atticus taking the limelight. I think all three of them are Hams.

Paul reading to the Boys

video Why Paul decided to read this book that way, I'm not sure but it was funny!!!

My little Guy is three today

It's interesting to me that birthday's sneek up on me so much. I love the fact that Atticus can speak his mind to me and tell me what he wants. I love that he is very independent and has an opinion on everything. He's almost out of diapers. He's been using the potty more and more and that makes me very happy. Happy Birthday little guy! I love ya lots.

Alexandra will go to all day school this year. I think it finally hit her because she came into my room after bedtime and was crying that she would miss me while she is gone all day at school. I told her she would do great and that I would pick her up in the afternoon not the evening so we would have lots of time together. She said two or three times that she's not good at math so she wouldn't do good in 1st grade. It must be something she's concerned about. I told her the teacher would help her and that she's still learning, she'll get it though. I wanted to cry with her and tell her I would miss her too but I didn't think that would help her at that moment. But this transition is hard for me too :)

Alexandra's dance

video All is peaceful, all is right. Alexandra watched this video and said I didn't even realize they were screaming and fighting. She just blocked it out. :)

Fun in the Grimes' Pool

Both Atticus and Alexandra decided to jump off the diving board in the pool. They had so much fun as you can see.

Potty Training Woes


I tell ya, I thought Sebastian was a tough one to potty train. Oh, no the worst was yet to come. I know that Atticus gets what to do. If I take him into the bathroom about 20 min after he drinks something he will go. He fights though tooth and nail to get into the bathroom to go. If I don't make him go into the bathroom, he'll pee in his pants and not tell me. I am just at wits end. I have tried motivation, candy, toys and nothing is working. I did tell him that he cannot go to school if he doesn't use the potty. I'm gonna stick to it. He did tell me that when he was three he would be a big boy and then he would use the potty. He'll be three on Aug. 17th. I hope he keeps his word.
