Adventures in Potty Training

Someday I'm going to write a book and call it "Adventures in Potty Training." (I hope that title isn't already taken.) And I am going to write about the time that Jeremy and I set up the State Fair booth and then decided to take Ash and Will and eat at the Lion House at Temple Square. After lunch we were admiring something at Temple Square when all the sudden Will shouted, "I'm peeing on the flowers." His pants & undies were around his ankles and he was standing in a flower bed facing the Church Office Building. He was only 2 and had only been potty trained for a few months so we couldn't get mad. We just laughed. And my book is going to have other things about life and parenthood not related to potty training... maybe practical time management tips, and funny stories to keep perspective, and inspirational stories (also to keep perspective).

Just writing this down now... so I don't forget later. :)

Arranged Marriage

I have tons of pictures and such to post because the last 3 weeks have been AMAZINGLY busy, but super fun... but I don't have time right now. BUT I am going to post this, because I just overheard it and if I don't post it now, I'll forget it.

Katie and Ashton are playing in the kitchen when I hear...

"Ashy, I don't think you two are right for each other. I think you need to find another true love. And I get to pick her. I'll find you a new true love." (Don't know who they were talking about, but I had to try so hard not to laugh out loud.)

Then, when I was logging into blogger to type this I heard Katie say this:

"Okay, I'll tell you about her... she likes long walks in the park. She likes a clean house. She likes machines and transformers. She likes all the colors that you like." It sounds like Katie found Ashton the perfect woman. :)
