The girls overall have done fantastically. It has actually been a good bonding experience for us. Alayna usually opts for daddy whenever he is home and Dariya is a total mama's girl so this was good for the two girls to have share one parent.
We had lots of fun visiting the zoo...Dariya enjoyed visiting EVERY.SINGLE zoo bathroom she could find. We celebrate that she made it through the day with a dry pull up! I cut her off her potty breaks when she leaned in and licked the toilet seat. Really, who does that? (I see a new IEP goal Juanita LOL)
We had a lunch play date with some fantastically sweet friends who welcomed the Cannon chaos over even though the girls were tired and hungry, just shy of total grumpiness.
And just so you don't think our lives are all roses and happiness.
Here is a middle of the week surprise for me.
One morning both girls had to use the toilet so Dariya went upstairs (still had her night diaper on) she didn't make it to the toilet before she pooped but then scooted down the stairs to leave this lovely snail trail. As I scooped her off to the shower I come back downstairs to find Alayna mopping the floor with the toilet brush that she had been dipping in the toilet that she had just used.
Oh yes, we have our fun days too.
But, I wouldn't trade these two for anything in the world.
We are thankful that our boys will be home tonight!
Hope you had a wonderful Memorial weekend.
As we celebrate our boys homecoming we remember those who aren't coming home, who gave their lives for us.
