Perfect Summer Weekend...

Sadly, or not, depending on how you look at it, I have no pictures...

But this weekend was perfect. 

Errands done on Friday. 

Potty-training Saturday early morning during the rain.  Heading off to the park after the rain.  Followed by an awesome nap (2+ hours), then some pool time.  To bribe J out of the pool, when I was ready to get out, we took a bike ride around the lake.  From J's perspective, we could have kept going & going, but Mommy's legs were tired after passing by 2x's, so we stopped off a the park on the way back through.  Then we rounded out the evening of coloring on the driveway while waiting for Daddy to get home from work. 

J is getting more & more into at least trying what Mr. M & I are eating, so I'm making an effort for those choices to be better for little man.  He mostly says "I can't like" upon trying, promptly spitting it out of his mouth.  I have to give him credit, he looks for a napkin in which to spit.  :)  Although, yesterday by the pool, I had grapes & Payton happily scored a couple of pre-chewed ones off the deck.

Then yesterday, Mr. Man slept until 9.  Granted, he didn't get to sleep until 9:30, after our late dinner.  And due to the late bedtime, he was up at 12:30 & 2:30, at which point, I just slept on his floor.  When we got up, I had planned to make a waffle breakfast, but Mr. M requested bagels.  Obviously, J & I were in for that... :)

We followed our bagel run with a walk to the park, as Mommy had learned the day before - J will ride his tricycle to the park, but then Mommy gets to carry it home.  It was so hot, that even sweaty boy asked to "go see Daddy", who had stayed home to get started on his laundry.  Thankfully Mr. M was up for a nap, so little man & Daddy crashed out (again for 2 hours).  Followed by more pool time.

As for PTing... Little man is now over his fear of the potty, we think was caused by an older boy whose mom is just now PTing & he is fighting it, and has proven from Sunday's nap - that he can not only hold it during his nap - but even after he wakes up, finds me outside on the deck, and tells me about 5 minutes later - "Mommy I pee".  We ran inside to find totally dry pull-ups.  :)

Although, ET has a new competitor in getting Reese's Pieces. 

Munchkin even told me, as we were laying there after book time, "mommy I need pee."  As soon as he did, he looked up at me, proudly stating "I get treat Mommy!"
