Easter came and went by too quickly. We were blessed with the precense of family for an Easter brunch, followed by an Easter Egg Hunt outside, then we blew bubbles and watched the strong Minnesota wind take them far into the sky before they popped from a tree branch or the corner of the house.
The hustle and bustle quickly died down after the family left and we settled C-Man down for a nap. We both took advantage of this time as Paul and I slept in the living room…hearing nothing but Keeper scratch on the door so she could come in and nap, and the wind blowing against the window panes. Carter had fun with his cousins, as always. Prior to the Easter Egg Hunt, while we were cleaning up the dishes from our brunch, my husband played DJ and the kids danced in the living room. The room was bright and it was hard not to join in. C-Man’s method of dancing is jumping as high as he can and as often as he can. Then he stops and says, “UP!” to whomever is nearby. He doesn’t mind who, he likes everyone. And really, all they have to do is move to make him happy with the sound of the music.
With all the eating and all the dancing comes potty time. C-Man is learning to potty train. A big job for a little man like him. So far, he likes it, as he is rewarded with a single M&M after he washes his hands. Then he hops out of the bathroom and into the hall as if he is VERY proud of himself. I’m not sure who it’s harder on… the little boy who gets the treat when all is done or the momma that got peed on yesterday and poop on my pant leg. I changed three times yesterday. Yes… I have to do laundry tonight.
He is doing very well and loves to say “PeePee”, but I’m not yet sure he’s saying it because he wants the M&M or because he actually has to go. The world may never know, but either way we are very proud of him.
We did finally hear back from his Endocrinologist – it seems his hydro–something level is not high enough to treat. Which – is a good thing we believe. We go back and test his levels again in 3 months. Thank goodness for no infusions at this time.
He is such a blessing to our family on this Easter holiday. I couldn’t imagine hiding those sparkly eggs without his little chubby fingies finding them. He is our joy and hearts delight.
