A long time coming

I created this blogs years ago and have only today decided to actually start blogging. Eric and I have started attending The Stirring, and they have a whole community of bloggers. So in efforts to connect myself more, I'm going to give it a go.....

Today we danced. Today was the first day that Elliot went potty in his toilet - twice even! After getting him to calm down and sit there for a while, we sang "Twinkle twinkle little star" to distract him from the task at hand. Around "like a diamond" he stopped paying attention to my funny little song and realize he was peeing! I'm sure the music coming from his potty chair helped draw his attention back to the point of this whole charade as well. When he was done and we'd cleaned everything up, he picked two jelly beans and we danced in celebration of his success. It was great.

I've now decided that the next time I succeed at a new task, I'm going to recruit those who are near to join with me in a dance of celebration. I think it is only fitting.

Yay! WElcome to the blog world! I very much look foward to hearing your thoughts! Or should I say reading them? Either way, Yay!

the only thing that can stop me from dancing is the restroom also...it is great to have you all at the stirring. I heard Dan got you in his life group, I'm happy for him, I really am, but maybe someday Rebecca and I will get to hang with you...someday...
