Unscheduled Break

September and most of October has seen me on an unscheduled break from the blog. Life sometimes has a way of taking over, and that is exactly what happened in our home.

At the very end of August both of our boys decided they were completely done with diapers/nappies. So we went into full scale potty learning boot camp. Having both a 3 year old and a 2 year old running around without a diaper/nappy and refusing to actually use the potty was keeping me on my feet and not leaving me much time for anything else. I am happy to say our 3 year old is 95% of the way to being potty learned. We still have to work on some poop issues and completely master the art of redressing after the potty, but accidents are now very few and far between. Our 2 year old is still very hit and miss, but now that I'm down to just one with some accidents it isn't quite so crazy.

Then we got hit by the flu about 2 weeks ago. I was first to suffer from it and also got it the worst. The baby has managed to avoid it so far, but the boys both got it too. We are still in recovery mode for that.

But we are slowly getting our routine back, so I'll be back to blogging in the next few days.

While I'm working on some new posts here are a few photos of the children to enjoy.
