This weekend we hit a few milestones at the Ralph house. Besides bowling for the first time (which deserves it’s own little spot in blog history), Sam peed on the potty for the first time! For those of you without kids, this may not seem like a big deal, but those of us WITH kids know that it’s huge. It’s a long, messy road but at the end is something better than a rainbow…. NO DIAPERS.
Addi had a milestone of her own, and this is one I never thought possible. Yesterday while I was putting laundry away, I realized that both kids were silent. The TV was off so I knew they had not succumbed to a Spongebob-induced coma, so I understandably expected the worst (given our history of silent children). I found Sam immediately – she had her daycare on the stairs and was patting babies for naptime – but Addi wasn’t with her. I ran upstairs and saw what I can only describe as a miracle.
Addi – sitting quietly in her room, working on a puzzle. The puzzle wasn’t on fire. There were no permanent markers within reach. AND, she was fully clothed.
I was, and still am, a bit speechless.
