A Beautiful Day

We are enjoying some beautiful fall weather here in Kentucky - just another reason why I love living here. The boys, Owen and Will (the child I nanny), had fun playing outside.

I love his facial expression! "Mama, can I pee right here on these leaves?" I'm not kidding. That is exactly what he was saying when I snapped the photo. And the answer I gave him? "Sure!" And he did.

Beautiful picture of the sun coming through the trees. God is so glorious!

That's HILARIOUS about Owen wanting to pee on the leaves outside. Man, can't believe the difference between boys and girls. The first time I made Chloe pee in the woods (out of sheer necessity) she cried through the whole ordeal. I'll have to tap you for boy potty training wisdom soon . . . it's just around the corner for Clive.

As far as peeing by the tree - like father, like son! :-) Our apple tree is growing real well!!

Your kids are adorable!

Thanks, Heather and Cathy.

Alicia,
Everyone says that it's harder to potty train boys and that they typically don't "get it" until they are 3 years old or older. I have never potty trained a girl, but I didn't really think potty training Owen was all that bad. In fact, I'm thinking it might be easier than potty training a girl. My friends who have girls always have to find a bathroom and race to get to it in time. Not us! Owen has peed at the park, the zoo, even in a parking lot (it was dark). :) Potty training Aubrey might prove to be more challenging for me. haha.

I love clicking on your pics to get a close up of O's facial expressions...just priceless. I just love that kid. And Aubrey too of course!

you finally got your pictures with the leaves! Turned out really well.
Amazingly enough, I think I was there all of the times he peed outdoors, including the parking lot! What an outdoorsy guy you have already. Way to go, O!

I find it funny that people look at things so differently. If I ever have a son he will only be peeing in the toilet. I think it is disgusting and very rude to let them pee just anywhere. Is that really what you want your son to learn as he grows up, that it is ok to pee anywhere?

Dear Anonymous,
My son is not permitted to pee "just anywhere" and he is well aware of that.
