150% BOYS!

So I was giving the boys a bath on Monday night! When they were done, I took Cameron out and dried him off. I notice that Daniel is trying to turn on the hot water in the tub, so I turn to him to stop him. As I turn back to Cameron, I see that he is looking "down" and peeing on the bathtub and bath mat!!! Little stinker! So I plop him on the pottie and get Daniel out of the tub and dry him off.

My mom showed up with little BVD's (aka. "tighty-whitey's) and we call them "Daddy pants". She was having them wear them yesterday and hope they would notice when they wet themselves and encourage keeping them dry. It didn't work that great since they were refusing to go potty when we tried to take them and Daniel wet 2 pair and Cameron 1 pair. We'll try again soon. I still can't get them to tell us when they have to go potty! Hmmmm.... Any suggestions welcome! I need them potty-trained by September when they should start going to pre-school.

The boys helped me make cupcakes last night and then they each got to frost and put sprinkles on their own cupcake! Devils Food cake mix for the cupcake and chocolate frosting! Yummy!
They are very helpful in the kitchen by helping pour the oil and water and cracking eggs! Then they take turns helping hold the beaters while we mix it. Then they get to lick the beaters! They were covered in chocolate when they were done, but they had fun!

My mom also helped me get the boys armoire and closet cleaned out and organized. She pulled all the clothes out that they don't fit in to anymore and we pulled clothes out of the closet storage bins that they can start wearing. It was so funny to pull out pants that are 18mo, 24mo or 2T that fit the boys length-wise, but not around the waist. They are tiny little boys with no bellies and the pants just fall off of them! Other 18mo or 24mo pants that do fit their waists, are too short for them! Mom is going to try and sew the backs of the pants at the waist so they will fit the boys. When they start to get bellies, we can let them out. We'll see if it works! It is just so hard to find pants that fit them!

We take Cameron to the ENT (Ear, Nose & Throat) Dr tomorrow at 1:30 to discuss tubes for him. We will see if he still has fluid in the ears and maybe make a decision about what we will do. I personally think that the fluid is still there and I think it is affecting his speech. We know it is affecting his hearing. I'll let you know what we find out.

Well, I'll talk to you all later! Lot's of love to all of you from Caine family!

JEN, two things, email me and I'll give you a great potty training thing I got from Allysia, and Target and Old Navy carry cheaper pants with adjustable waists, we have the same problem with Damen, but these help.
