I know it's a bit early for Halloween, but it's still fun. :) We even got Halloween costumes this week. Hannah will be a "storybook princess" (which is basically a Cinderella knock-off) and Autumn will be a kitty which comes with a little dress, head band, and bloomers (or pantalettes, I guess they're called). And after Halloween they can be dress-up clothes. :)
Still working on the whining thing (more so with Autumn). I'm becoming very patient, and maybe a little amused, when Autumn has a big drag-out fit when she doesn't get her way. She didn't get a snack at Hannah's soccer game on Monday (sometimes there will be extras so siblings will get some), so she wailed and stomped all the way to the car. When we got to the car she had the gall to ask if she could watch a DVD. Silly girl. On the drive home she continued thrashing and kicking the seat. She was wearing her Sketchers Twinkle Toes so all you saw were all these lights flashing everywhere. Ha. I think ignoring her was more of a punishment than a spanking would have been.
On top of this, I'm trying to be proactive in potty training. I've been trying to take her to the potty every 15 minutes, so I'm hoping the general idea will click. Hannah was 3 and a half before it completely clicked with her, so I have six more months before I should really start to panic. Autumn is actually showing some interest. Twice she has taken it upon herself to sit on the potty. Sure, she's already wet her pants but it's the thought that counts. She did pee in the potty once though! Go Autumn!
Now for some school-related fun!
Getting down and dirty with the Play Doh Fun Factory :-D
This week definitely had it's moments, and I am so grateful for the weekend. Hannah had a soccer game this morning and almost scored a goal....for the other team. But she looked adorable doing it, and she has so much fun! "I love soccer and I love Mr. Donald (her coach)!" she proclaimed earlier this week.
Next week will be Ii. The themes will be insects and ice cream (but not combined! Gross!).
