What a day

So much to say about the best concert ever that I’m afraid if I try to tell you about it tonight I might leave something out. Today was long! Up early to head to Ecclesia, shopping, 3 hours driving to pick up the kiddos, visit with the in-laws, hour leg turns into 1 hour 45 minutes BUT we have a breakthrough in potty training, bath and bed time, unpack…exhausted. I think, however, I can discuss Ecclesia so I’m going to attempt that before I head to bed and work up a video for John Mayer for you tomorrow! 

BUT FIRST: Potty Training breakthough! Chloe hadn’t had a real nap today at MiMi and PawPaw’s today so she was one cranky girl but had been PeePeeing all day today. We’ve got an hour drive ahead of us and 5 minutes in, Chloe nods off to sleep. 40 minutes later she’s up and crying and whining and complaining. We can’t figure it out and then it clicks: bathroom break? Sure enough, she says she needs the potty! I’ve got an exit coming but this is the most tense, uncomfortable, awkward 3 minute dash to see if we can get to the rest stop before we have an accident!!! 
WE MAKE IT! But now the question is whether or not she’ll use it at the Love’s Gas Station/Rest Stop in Lobdell?!?! Rae rushes in with Chloe while I sit with Gavin praying that we have a successful stop!

What must have been only 5 minutes felt like 20 and I can’t stand it! I grab Gavin and rush in to bump into Rae and Chloe coming out beaming! Major breakthrough people: PeePee in the potty on the road!!!  

I just can’t believe it! So it’s been a looong day! I’m nursing a Smithwick’s as we’re catching up on So You Think You Can Dance, but it’s been one to remember!

    Good thing I’m having a Smithwicks, Mark just got booted off So You Think You Can Dance! What a shame. Joshua and Mark should have been the Top 2! Such a shame.

    I don’t know anything about ‘so you think you can dance’ but congrats on the peeped in the potty success!
