So, it's time. And of course, I have no idea what to do. I know there's charts and books, and rewards and movies, but I really have no idea how to pull it all together. Well...thank goodness for Facebook - I put out a call for help on ideas, and got many great responses. I think the overwhelming comment was that we need to take a weekend, let her drink all she wants, and put her in underwear, so she feels what it's like to be wet.
We've got the plan, and now we just need to execute it. And that's the tough part. We'll see how it goes - and I'll be sure to post updates. Just not too detailed of ones. :)
Before I forget - Happy Birthday, Papa Doug! Hope you and Mom are enjoying the beautiful Colorado weather!
Ava's going to spend the evening/night/tomorrow with Grandma Deb and Tatiana. They're going to take a trip to the splash pool in SSP, so that should be a blast! I hope the weather is wonderful so they get a chance to have fun in the sun!
My gun class is going well - on Thursday we learned all about the best place to shoot and kill a deer. And tomorrow night, I'm pretty sure I'm going to learn how to gut a deer. I thought I was signing up for a class on firearms. Not hunting. Oh well, never hurts to learn something new, right? I just might never eat meat again...! This Thursday I have my test, and then Saturday morning, we'll be at the range for our "field experience"...I think all of the girls in the class are excited - there were a lot of questions about range day on Thursday night. Scott's going to bring out some of his guns for me this week, so I can review all of the different parts.
Now, onto the cute stuff...!
Ava still loves the big caterpillar I bought for her when she was six months old - now it's become a very comfy body pillow.
We had pudding for dessert last night. What a mess. And Scott was having fun showing Ava how spoons can be toys, too. He's just a big kid in disguise!
She was fascinated by the Disney Channel this morning. She refused to stop and pose for the camera.
I think Scott and I are going to try to see the movie "Inception" tonight while Ava's gone. I've heard that it's amazing, jaw dropping, funny, and all-around awesome. That works for me! Once again, thanks to Grandma Deb and Grandpa Whitey for taking Ava overnight so we can spend some time together - we appreciate it!
