I really wanted to blog

Yet, there's not a whole lot I can say. I'm still working on two "hired knitting" jobs that I am expected to keep under wraps until June. I am enjoying both of them and each are at or just past the halfway point, so yay on that.

We've been working on using the potty with the Lorax. If you know this kid you know she is smart and on target for all developmental milestones and whatnot. She is a good kid. I love her dearly. I have done my reading, I have asked around, I have observed my kid - we are dealing with a power struggle / mental block or fear and just have to wait it out. Oy. If it weren't for this I would have nothing to complain about. And yet, here it is. I really don't want to go into too many details here on the blog as certainly I have embarrassed my kid enough (and will continue to do so, it's my blog) and I want to keep it classy-ish, and not turn it into a swear-laden-King's-Speech. Though once in a while that is probably good for the soul.

On to cheerier things - the blanket I knit for my cousin-to-be is in use! The baby was born on Sunday and today there was a cute photo of the wee one with the blanket!


Last night Dan surprised the Lorax and I with flowers - wasn't that sweet? It's been overcast and raining here all week - good weather to match our stinky moods!

What a darling baby. Looks pretty happy with the blanket, too!

I'm sure Lorax will get the hang of the potty before you know it.

Those flowers are so bright and cheery! I've never seen anything like that.

I feel your pain, we're about to embark on potty training fairly soon. I don't think he's ready but he is insisting that he tries and I just know it will be a whole heap of stress!

Love the baby blanket, the pic is so cute. Flowers are gorgeous too, lucky you!

Such is the life of a busy woman...potty training trumps blogging! The baby is adorable, and the blanket, very sweet!
