Spicy Chocolate with Chilies and Nibs

by autumn on March 15, 2011 · 5 comments

Today has been a GOOD day!!

  1. I got up within 15 minutes of the alarm going off at 7 AM.  That’s early.  Michael desires that we be up at 7 and to honor his wishes makes me feel oh so good-wifeish.  He’s a little neurotic.
  2. Haley is finished with school work BEFORE lunch! Wow.  This waking up early has many perks.
  3. I’m not tired yet but I am famished.  My little tummy (ha! that is funny that I just said little) is used to eating at 8:30.
  4. Sterling’s nighttime diaper was dry.  It has been many times before so this time I took the cue.  We began potty training. And guess what???


…after 6 or 7 mini-squirts on the floor throughout the morning.  But, that’s ok.  He’d come to me and say, “I already peed.”

And, I feel this is worth mentioning, Camden has been so happy today.  Happy like, sitting in his swing awake and staring off contentedly.  Happy and not spitting up.  Happy probably because he slept the WHOLE night last night.  WHOLE= until 5ish am.  That’s pretty close to the whole night ;)

That 7 hours of uninterrupted sleep I was dreaming of would have happened if my 4yo wouldn’t have crawled in our bed and kicked me all night. Yes, I could have gotten up and put her back in bed but being kicked while in bed seems so much easier than getting up.

Oh, so that chili pepper chocolate I talked about in the title.  Everyone deserves a reward for peeing in the potty.  Chocolate is the best reward.

Unfortunately for Sterling, the only chocolate I had on hand was a little spicy :)

Oh, that outfit is GREAT! Sterling… such a darling!

Getting up before/at 7am… ugh. I did it a lot at the beginning of the year. Not so much anymore. Good for you!

HURRAY for pottying! And I LOVE the baby legs! We did the same thing when our oldest was potty training and got addicted to them. Now, the baby (9 months) wears them almost everyday!!!

Babylegs are great! Camden wears them often and always gets compliments. My husband thinks they’re funny looking :)
