Potty Training

I have to say that I was really dreading potty training and kept putting it off.  Elson would ask me to use the potty and I would encourage him to use his diaper just a little bit longer.  I told a more experienced mother about that and she looked at me like I was crazy and told me it was time.  I took her advice and decided to bite the bullet.  I had read all about "potty training in 3 days."  That book lies...it took us 7 days before we really had it down, which I still think is pretty darn good!! 

I have a lot of cute pictures of the twins potty training, but I'm not sure they would appreciate having all their "business" posted on this blog (The cutest picture is of Elson peeing on a tree outside while Emily holds up his shirt to make sure he doesn't get pee on it!!).  In an effort to not embarrass my children any more than I already do/have, I will just post an adorable picture of them wearing cute clothes with cute underwear underneath :)

Tax Season 2014

Have you done your taxes yet?  If not, you better get on top of that. 

I know that I have been slacking on my blogging, but that is because I have been working a ton!!  March was the most I have worked in a single month since I got pregnant with the twins.  I'm happy to say that tax season is over and we can return to our regularly scheduled program.

First LSU Baseball Game

A couple of weeks ago, we took the twins to their first LSU baseball game.  They lasted slightly longer than at their first football game mainly because the baseball games aren't as crowded and there are parks in right and left field.  Elson was very interested in watching the game, while Emily was more interested in the snacks and people watching.  Either way, they have both been asking to go to another baseball game.

First Trip to the Dentist

A couple of weeks ago we made our first trip to the dentist.  I didn't have an appointment scheduled for months, but my friend who is the hygienist (and also a mother of twins) called to tell me they had an opening if we wanted to head up there.  I jumped all over it.  I think it was best not to have any build up.  Emily and Elson both did great.  Elson was a little more eager than Emily, but both were extremely cooperative.  In fact, every night since then Emily has added the dentist to the list of things she is thankful for.  All in all, it was a complete success!!

Happy Mardi Gras Y'all!

The only Mardi Gras-ing (is that a word) that we did this year was a small neighborhood kids' parade with some of our friends.  Emily rode in a decorated wagon with her buddy Emma while Elson hung out on his Dad's shoulders.  It was the perfect Mardi Gras experience for two year olds.
