Some days having twins really kicks me in the hiney. Today was one of those days. haha
I'll just give you a run down.
BTW...I use the timer/reward with candy method. hahaha We set the timer and go to the bathroom every time it goes off... They get 1 piece of candy for going pee and 2 pieces for going poop. I had some Nerds in my cupboard...so they only get a tiny piece of candy. haha Love this age...they are thrilled...even with a teeny tiny piece. :)
We spent the AM taking the boys to the bathroom & cleaning up messes. I ran to the store to buy more underwear and some stuff for lunch. I made lunch. Yay for sloppy joes. Brian had a guy here working...he built me a table to put my herbs on (so Bear doesn't dig them all up)...and did some other yard work.
The afternoon...was more taking the boys to the bathroom... I also finished up the kids palm frond craft...I don't have pics of it yet...but it was not a craft for young children.
Skye woke up after less than an hour nap...
Brian went to pick up my chicken order(I have to order ahead if I want boneless, skinless chicken breast). He also picked up a quilt that I had washed at a laundry place in town...as it won't fit in my washing machine. He bought worm medicine...cuz well, you know...it's that time again. hahaha Gotta deworm every few months. :) The joys of being a missionary. He also picked up some printing from a printer in town...another Visayan Grammar book for us....and a paper on Missionary Stress...which kind of made us laugh today!
Took the boys to the bathroom about 20 more times. Made supper..FRENCH TOAST! yay! Everybody loves breakfast for dinner. By this time the boys were pretty tired about going to the bathroom and were almost begging to put diapers on. haha
We made it through bathtime and bedtime and Brian & I are pooped....oops...tired...sorry...Ithink that's what's on my brain...
Why is potty training soooo exhausting? It could have something to do with taking the boys to the bathroom about 100 times today...and unfortunately...that's NOT an exaggeration. I remember being sooo tired after potty training Asia all day...and seriously...she was potty trained in 2 days... The boys...well...the boys are different. :) My mom told me to have VERY, VERY low expectations. I told her...it's a good thing I'm a natural pessimist. :) hehe The boys did pretty much how I thought they would do...it's going to take quite a while to get them trained. hahaha I knew it would be much harder to potty train twin boys versus Asia...but WOW! It was hectic!
Anyway...that's a glimpse of our Twin-sanity Saturday! Wonder what tomorrow will be like?!?
So thankful that I know WHO holds the future!!!
For I can do all thing(including potty train twins) through Christ who gives me strength. Phil 4:13
