Shifts

It's no secret that having a child means constant shifts and changes in your life. With Kathryn closer to a three year old than a than two year old, those changes are certainly in full effect.


The biggest shift is the potty training adventure (I guess you could call it an adventure?). After months upon months of K being more than capable of going on the potty, there has been a huge shift in the past week and a half.

It's been over a month that K has been consistently going on the potty at home and then less than two weeks ago we got the great news that she FINALLY went at school after being afraid for months. Woah. Big news in our house.

In the last week she's been progressing like crazy. From no longer using her training toilet and insisting on using the grown up one (with the help of a training seat on the toilet) to wearing her big girl undies this weekend with no accidents. Tomorrow is a big day for her as she'll wear her undies to school for the first time (with a couple changes of clothes, just in case).

Although temporary, another shift in our house is quite literally E. J.'s work shift. He's back to the day shift, which means his 12 hour days fit more in the "normal" business hours, allowing us to have dinner together and we are awake / sleeping during the same hours. 

It's 100 times better being able to eat dinner together, have daddy around for story time before bed and having my husband around in general. It gets old really fast having completely opposite schedules.

We've had good shifts in our house lately, really good. With that, I leave you with a look inside the last two weeks.
I have a confession: I'm the mother of a hoarder
 Her latest obsession - police cars. Getting to sit in daddy's police car = highlight of her week
 No nap means you fall asleep while eating dinner
 Hat day at school
Dressing up has become a thing lately. It's amazing how she decided to do this on our own without me suggesting it. It's just built in her little girl nature.
 She adores being outside
 Moments before I got an unwanted, cold shower. I should have known better. Anything for a cool picture, right?
