A TAN Dragon Lies Beneath!
My inner dragon is the true draconic magic-user. Deep down I am very wise, somewhat shy, and I have a rather short fuse. But don't worry, tans prefer to spend their time counting their enormous treasure, so pass quietly and you'll stay out of danger. Click the image to try the Inner Dragon Online Quiz for yourself.
Ok...that said....here's what's been happening. We're sick again! OK, besides that....
Jayden is trying to learn to read. He is picking out simple words from books he knows and pointing to them, saying them, and spelling them. It's pre-reading, but the interest is what I am excited about. He is showing progress and growth in all areas of 3. Today, we were visiting an adult friend of mine and from the distance, I heard the toilet flush. I ran to see what they were doing and Jayden looks innocently at me and says, "I had to pee."
Me: "Nuh-uh! Are you serious? You just came in here all by yourself to go potty?!?!"
Jayden: "Yeah! But, the water is blue." (note here that she had those blue toilet things)
Me: "That's ok...it helps keep the toilet clean. Do you still need to go?"
Jayden: "Yeah, but I need help."
Me: "Ok, let's get to it then!" And, I put him on the toilet. In the meantime, Eliana was getting her little hands into everything. I think it was a calculated ploy, this potty thing, so that they wouldn't get into trouble for exploring. But...
Jayden (while getting down): "I'm all done. But, I didn't pee-pee."
It was all very funny and shocking and cool! This is the first time he has decided all by himself to tend to his toiletry needs. Last time he went pee on his own initiative, I had sent him to go change his diaper. I never told him to pee...he just did. I think we will have this pottying thing down before kindergarten yet.
Off to feed the little ones now.
