Happy New Year!!!

I would like to wish all my "readers" a happy and healthy new year.  Last year is behind us and we get to start "anew" again.  So far this year (or at least the first three days!!!) have been good for us.  My beloved 'Bama boys beat Michigan State in their bowl game.  Steve started the new year with a job (YEAH!!) and hopefully he will keep said job.  Colton has been doing well with his potty training.  He sometimes has an accident, but it is usually me fault. Yesterday he had been dry all morning, even pooped in the potty that morning, and after lunch we went to Home Depot.  He told me he had to go potty, but the bathroom was CLEAR ACROSS THE STORE and we didn't make it in time.  He finally gets what wet is and how he should stay dry.  He checks his undies to see if they are dry every time we go potty.

Today is his first day of "school" and I hope it goes well.  I am sure it will take him a little while to adjust and get into the routine.  He is pretty social and doesn't seem to mind being left with others.  I am sure he will so excited with all the new kids and toys to really realize that Grammy left.  My main concern is that he won't listen to the teacher because he isn't used to that type of structured environment.  She did tell us that she gives them a lot of freedom and teaches independence, but they do have circle time and activities and "lessons" throughout the morning.  I am sure he will do fine and have a great time.  Since his birthday is in December, he will either have to start a year later than other kids or he will have to test into private school.  Either way, it is 3 to 4 years down the road and we have plenty of time to figure it out.


  1. Happy New Year to you, Colton and Steve!

  2. Congrats on school! When Colt went, I was feeling the same way. Would he behave, would he eat? Much to my total surprise - he was better for them than for me. he napped on a mat on the floor. ( oh my) AND he ate things he wouldn't dare eat for me. Little bugger!
