Bye-Bye binkis & planning for Preschool!

Saturday was the first day that I started having the boys put away their binki's during the day and it's going better than I thought it would! When they wake up in the morning, we have this little fire engine Easter basket that is the binki basket. I have them put their binki's away and they only get them for nap time and bed time! Other than a few crying fits that have lasted 2 - 20 minutes long, we haven't given in and let them have the binki's! YEAH!!!

And I made the phone call yesterday to find out when we need to register the boys for Preschool that will start in September! AAAHHH!!! It is just crazy, happy and sad to think that they will be going to preschool in 9 months! I called the preschool that I went to when I was younger, and where my mom taught at for many years. Open registration is in March and will cost full price for the first kid and 1/2 price for the 2nd one! YEAH! However, that means it will still be about $140.00 per month for 2 days a week and 2 1/2 hours per day! OUCH! I'm looking forward to them being able to be with more kids a few times a week and learning new things! I hope they do well! That also means that we need to have them potty-trained in the next few months so that they can actually go! I just can't get them to tell us WHEN they actually have to go potty! The only time they ask to go potty is when we are changing their diapers. I just need to buckle down and get all of us that deal with the kids, to push using the potty more often and wearing pull ups so it is easy to run them in to the potty.

And congratulations to my father-in-law, Charles (Bud) Caine! He just retired on December 31st from working at the mill for 34 years as an electrician! Now we have a babysitter any time we want one! Hee, hee, hee!

I'm adding a few new pics that my Dad sent me from when we had our snow (that was about 8-10 inches deep)! Enjoy!
