It’s Monday morning. We’re enjoying cool, crisp air that will all too soon change for hot muggy temps. The Kidlets are eating breakfast and I’m smiling in the knowledge that this day is not your average start to the week.
Today … today … all three Kidlets are going to school in underwear.
That’s right, folks — this Mama has entered into a new phase of Motherhood: the diaper-free years.
An impromptu weekend of potty-training bootcamp proved successful — VERY successful — and Barney Kneeknuckles is officially no longer diaper-clad 24 hours a day. Just the night-time eludes us but I’m not even worried about that.
I’m too darn excited over the fact our days are now diaper-free
This deserves a second HUZZAH!!!!!!!!!!!!
In other news — admittedly not as exciting as Barney’s — the Husband and I have decided to have another 21-Day Sugar Detox today. We’ve gotten lazy with our sweets and treats, finding excuses (like Easter) why we can have chocolate or jelly beans. Slowly but with increasing frequency, sugar has started making up too large a percentage of our diet. And, of course, we’re paying the price physically. Time to get that under control!!!!
