Post # 3

Our weekend was fun and relaxing. Owen started potty training a little more seriously, he was proud of wearing big boy underwear when we remarked on how well he could jump without diapers on. We watched Elmo's Potty Time together and there is a scene with bigger kids playing in a band and little kids dancing. Owen asked "what are the big kids doing mommy, are they guitaring like daddy?" So cute, I couldn't even correct him. Bad speech therapist.

We went to the mall and he refused to try to sit on the public toilets and I can't blame him. We used diapers for part of the day and of course at night time. It was a big enough step for him to agree to wear the big boy underwear. When we first got them (back in Feb - look at all that hair!) he put them all on,

but hasn't wanted to wear them since.

Saturday evening I had a great night out with the girls. We had a few drinks and a great time. I left my camera at home, opting instead to bring a big bucket of margaritas!

Today we went to Wally-world for a potty to have upstairs. While there I scored some "soft" shorts on clearance. Owen is in a phase where he only wants to wear soft material - hello he has some really cute shorts just being wasted in his drawers- but some mornings it is not worth the battle. He also hates wearing flip flops, and has been complaining that socks are too "slippery" hope he gets over that one before the fall weather kicks in.

When we got home, Owen and I got creative...

This is our double batch, we took half and added several drops of red food coloring to make our orange dough, its a bit peachy though.

We had lots of fun, Owen wants to make some red play dough next time, we are gonna have to stock up on the cream of tartar.

I used this recipe, it doubled easily...
1 cup warm water (with food coloring added)
1 cup flour
1/4 cup salt
2tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp cooking oil

stir continuously over medium heat until dough forms
maybe I took mine off a bit too early but I found it to be tacky so we sprinkled more flour into it as we kneaded it
