Weekend Recap

Friday night my niece and me went to see Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker, and Jerrod Niemann. It was a great concert. I will post pictures sometime this week.

Saturday morning we had to take Dustin's grandmother home. She had been here staying with Dustin's mom for a few weeks. Saturday night we all went out to eat at this place that has delicious catfish. Landon was so funny while we were there he got chicken fries and after he would take a bite of one he would say "I love chicken" and we found out that he loves slaw, he ate almost my entire bowl of it.

Sunday morning as soon as we woke up I dropped my iPhone in the toilet (I was and still am devastated). I still don't have a phone. Sunday afternoon Landon and me went to Walmart with my sister. I had to get a few groceries and she wanted to let Landon pick him out something for Valentine's day. She decided to let him get a movie and so when we got over to the movies she let him out of the buggy and he ran up to the DVDs and said "Oh my gosh, I love it. It's my favorite" to every movie. She got him a Yo Gabba Gabba movie and I got him one that had a bunch of different shows on it. After that we went over to Granna house to play outside because it was such a nice day yesterday. Landon got to blow bubbles and play with his 3D sidewalk chalk. We also went and got frozen yogurt which is Landon's favorite.

Today Landon was having a Valentines party at daycare. So he went to daycare with his little valentines cards and some m&m's to give to all his friends. I wish I could have been there to get pictures.

I hope all of you  had a wonderful weekend and are having a great Valentine's Day!!

Five Question Friday

1. Would you rather be on ABC's Extreme Home MakeOver or TLC's What not to Wear?
That's a tough one. I would love to be on either show.ha. But I guess I would have to say What not to Wear because the families that are on Extreme Home Make Over all have such sad stories and luckily I am not in any situation like that.

2. Do you have any tattoos?

3. Do you tell your kids about things you did growing up?
Well my son is only two so he probably doesn't care right now but I am sure I will tell him somethings as he gets older.

4. If the traffic signal turns yellow, do you stop or speed up?
It depends. If I am really close then I might speed up or if I am in a hurry but usually I stop.

5. What's your preference: chocolate or chips?
Both are delish but I prefer chips over chocolate most of the time.

Potty Training

We have began to potty train Landon. He will go whenever we ask him if he wants to potty but he doesn't tell us that often that he has to go. Anybody have any potty training advice?? Help..

Like I said he doesn't usually tell us that he has to go but the other night we were all laying in bed and and he said that he need to go potty so his daddy got up to take him, Landon looked at me and said "I be back in five minutes mommy". It was so cute. He also cracks me up when he goes #2. He will push and push and when he is all done he says "Feels better mommy".

I have a question for all of you. Did or do your children have to take off there pants and everything before they will use the potty. Landon has to have his shoes and pants completely off before he will use the potty. I am completely fine with that at home but I don't want to take him to a public bathroom and have to pull off all of his clothes. Any suggestions??

Show Us Your Life...What your kids eat.

Today over at Kelly's Korner is Show Us Your Life..What your kids eat.

I am pretty lucky Landon eats just about anything. He eats mostly the same things we eat. I really try to feed him healthy things. Some of his favorite things to eat right now are:

  • Hot dogs- I think he could eat about 5 hot dogs in one sitting.
  • Chicken nuggets/fingers/tenders- He loves just about any kind of chicken but his favorite is grilled chicken tenders from Cracker Barrel.
  • Grilled Cheese
  • Spaghetti
  • Green beans
  • Corn
  • Soups-He loves veggie soup.
  • Oatmeal
  • Biscuits
  • Sausage
  • Pizza
He also can eat some pretty strange things for a two year old. He loves and I am talking loves him some raw onions (Gross) He gets that from his daddy though. He loves spinach dip and salsa. Another one of his favorite things to snack on are chips and crackers.

He will eat pretty much anything. I haven't found to many things that he won't eat. He used to not like peaches but now he loves them.

Bed Time Conversations With a Two Year Old

My favorite part of the day has quickly become bed time. I think it may be Landon favorite part of the day too. He loves to get under the cover and snuggle with mommy and daddy.

Then I will always ask him what he wants to talk about. He is so cute because he always goes ummmm then he says whatever he wants to talk about (which is usually rainbows. I am not really sure why he loves them so much) he likes to talk about what color the rainbows are. He always says the three colors that he knows that are in the rainbow (green,orange,and yellow or ellow as Landon says) then I name all the other colors that are in the rainbow and he repeats them.

Then we might talk about a variety of things. Some of his favorite things to talk about are camels, dinosaurs, barney, hannah (my niece), forts (his new favorite thing to do), Payton (pey pey his best friend at daycare), and pom pom (my aunt and his daycare teacher), and who knows what else he is always coming up with something new.

After all of that, I am ready to go to sleep but I think he could talk all night long. I will tell him ok mommy needs to go to sleep now. He usually says ok mommy. Goodnight I love you. Then he will rub my face and say sweet dreams. It is the most precious thing ever!
