Happy Wednesday! The last two weeks have been so busy that they’ve flown right by in the blink of an eye.

After Easter, Corey had to get right back to traveling for work and Madeline and I tackled potty training during her spring break. We started trying this over Christmas when she started showing so much interest in the potty but I couldn’t get her tob100% accuracy so over her little break from school we decided to rip off the bandaid, er pull-up, and try again. I’m happy to say she is doing great and hasn’t had an accident in a week. The Peppa Pig undies really did the trick in motivating her.

During our potty training week, we were also busy dog sitting for my mother-in-law’s dog. There have been times in our marriage where we contemplated getting a second dog. I’m here to tell you that that is never going to happen! Two dogs are definitely more work than one, especially when you need to walk them while pushing a stroller.

We did manage a few fun outings, like going Uptown to Discovery Place and lunch with one of Madeline's best buddies.

In the middle of the potty training dog juggling week of chaos, I flew to New Jersey for my sister-in-law’s bridal shower and bachelorette party and left Corey to handle all the things going on at home. 

It was such a nice Parisian-themed shower that even had a caricaturist. Instead of having her sketch me, I asked her to sketch Madeline from a photo I snapped in Easter.

This was the first time I’ve flown by myself in years (probably since I was going back and forth from New Jersey)  so it felt so weird to just have my carryon and purse. I was constantly feeling like I’d accidentally set down all the other travel paraphernalia that comes when you have kids. 

I made it home just in time for Madeline to be getting up from her nap on Sunday and spent a few hours with my girl. Then, Corey headed out of town for work on Monday and Madeline went back to preschool yesterday so we are back into our little routine again.

Happy Wednesday friends!
