Proms and Potty Training


It's been a crazy couple of months. I have been getting ready for my sons graduation and also potty training my 2 year old. My brain is bouncing from one side of my head to the other. There have been Proms and Play dates; Graduation Parties and kids Birthday Parties. I get to experience both ends of the spectrum all at the same time. It sure is an eye opener. I need Gods wisdom for each task that he has for me to do. Being mom to 2 children at such different ages is challenging and exciting. I would not be able to do it with out Gods wisdom and his grace. Here is my son and his sister before he left to go pick up his prom date. My daughter thought he was taking her to the prom.

Update 7/1/07 I wanted to share with you the book I used in potty training my daughter. It has been a great help to me in knowing when to push and when not to push. And for my daughter; she wants these things to be on her terms. Potty training will be done when they are physically ready and when you are mentally ready. Knowing that will save you so much anguish and time. The book is called "The No-Cry Potty Training Solution: Gentle ways to Help your Child Say No to Diapers" by Elizabeth Pantley.
So you don't think I forgot my son, he was given a book by one of his teachers called "Don't Waste Your Life" by John Piper. I haven't read it yet but I have heard good things about it. It's not just for teenagers. I'll tell you more after Jules and I have read it. So check them both out. It's worth it.

Hi SiftedHeart--Welcome to the big blog world! I wanted to return your visit and say thanks for stopping by my site and commenting.

I love the pic of your children! And she thought he was taking her to the prom--how cute is that? I'm sure having a foot in two completely different stages of parenthood has its challenges--thankfully, our God is sufficient!

Blessings,
Lisa
