Connor is now potty trained and now we turn our focus to getting him to wipe his own hinny after he poo poos. I though it shouldn't be to hard he learned pretty quick when we give him a paper towel he needs to wash his face. Well Dutch brought Connor to potty and I heard him say from the living room, "here Connor now wipe your own butt" and then I here good job, WAIT don't do that" followed by, "Connor that's disgusting you don't do that ever." Dutch comes in after everything is done and sits down on the couch with me looking genuinely upset. When I ask him what happened he says, When I gave him toilet paper to wipe his butt he wiped it but then he wiped his face with the same toilet paper." That was a pretty gross one. I thought we may need to make sure he understands that every time we give him something like a napkin its not always to wipe his face. They do have other purposes!!!

I wrote awhile back about some remodeling Dutch and I were doing. New carpet, bathroom flooring, light fixtures things like that, and I have been meaning to get some pics up of the stuff actually done. So after reading books and a little trial and error here they or. I thought that I would be really happy, and I am but I realized that all it did was make room for another list. I guess we will be happy with everything eventually. Probably right before we sell it.

Some of you know that Dutch is taking class two nights a week that he goes to straight from work. So Tues. and Thur. the kids donot see Dutch at all, and Connor is really not liking the new schedule. It seems as though he knows when it is going to be one of those days that he does not see his Daddy. This past Thursday he came to me and said, "Can we call daddy" and I said yes why?? and he said, " I miss him, I want him to come home." Then yesterday Connor woke up before Dutch left for work and came and climbed in bed with us. He hugged his daddy and said,"Daddy you stay in the house." I feel bad he is having a hard time not seeing him everyday. I can't imagine what military families deal with. Its hard to see your children sad like that.
