Mom & Dad and Kelly & Brent Hankins took care of my kiddos this weekend while I attended a Mary Kay fall conference just outside of Austin. Mom wrote me this note today to tell me a couple of memorable moments from her weekend. They seemed blog-worthy so I had to add it of course!
Kaelyn has done very well the last three days with potty training. She has been very emphatic about washing her hands after using the potty. A couple of times I heard her talking to herself saying she had to wash her hands because she touched the potty seat. We went to Kemah this afternoon and had to use the public facility. Before I put her on the potty I put a seat cover on it and then held her and helped her get her clothes back up. As we were leaving I drew her over to the sink to wash her hands. She emphatically told me that she didn't have to wash her hands because she didn't touch the seat. (She had me there. She didn't.) I tried a couple of other reasons for washing her hands but she wasn't convinced. We used wet wipes later.
When we got back from Kemah Rick took K directly to get her bath. Zeke and I finished unloading the car and then I told him it was his turn for a bath. He proceeded to take off his clothes in the den. I told him to go and put them in the washer. He went to the laundry room and sat on the floor and started pulling out his pockets. He saw me looking at him in a puzzled fashion and proceeded to explain to me that when you put things in the washer that you had to clean out the pockets because things that are left in the pockets get ruined in the washer. (I can't tell you how many years and how many things were ruined before I trained your Dad to clean out his pockets) Zeke is growing up.
