Wednesday • Big Win⠀
It’s official Bentley is Day Time potty trained... honestly never ever thought we would ever get to this point.⠀
We have tried/started potty training many times... but it was time and he was a pro 🙌🏼 it’s been about 2 weeks now and we have had minimal accident so it’s a big win for us and we so proud of him.⠀
I honestly can’t believe how much life has changed is a short few month and with all the big or small wins happening I can’t find the sad/hard times anymore.⠀
Day by day, Hurdle by hurdle... we come out smiling and appreciating every little thing.⠀
This was our 4th year doing a fall session. It’s absolutely incredible how much they’ve grown up! Can’t wait to send them their gallery in just a moment. (And then after that, it sounds like I might be heading to a birth. ☺️)
Today this little lady ran me ragged at the Wild Animal Park. After about the 14th time down the slide and 27 rounds in and out of a tunnel, that is NOT made for adults, I called it quits and told her I needed a break. She patted my hand and said “ok tired mommy, you go get some rest.” Uh huh, but just so you know, she was passed out in the stroller before we even made it to the car. #jealous
317/365 I had to force myself to take a photo of something today. It seems so wrong to take and share a picture of something that makes me happy while my heart is breaking. I have been in a fog since late last night when I found out my best friend of 27 years died. Thanks to living states apart and busy schedules, Frankie unfortunately never got to meet her. 😞
Even though I didn't feel like taking a picture today, I am even more appreciative of my photo a day projects now and all of the little moments I've captured the past 682 days ... including this one. Just a typical evening of these two playing before Frankie goes to bed. Never take the little moments for granted. ❤️
I’m so proud of her. She did her presentation on komodo dragons today. A project she did all on her own. Her teacher was really impressed by her choice of animal and by her knowledge of them. This kid had a serious dinosaur obsession for many years and when she discovered the komodo dragon she fell in love. Did you know Toronto zoo has one?! Not sure I’d want to be the person caring for that creature. 😂
Here’s the three facts she gave (but in French) to her class and no one could guess it.
1. It can and will eat you if it has the chance.
2. It’s not from Canada.
3. Girls can have babies without needing a boys baby seed.
After 19 questions, her pal Katie got it! If you’re interested, you should take out a book from the library about these giant creatures, or watch a documentary. They really are so fascinating and powerful!
While getting ready for his bath tonight I noticed the window light directly hitting his bed. The light is changing with the seasons and time changes and now drops right into his room at the right time. If we’ve worked together you know I love window light. Swipe to see his moves 🕺
