spring & random assorted thoughts

In the spring I have counted one hundred and thirty-six different kinds of weather inside of four and twenty hours.  ~Mark Twain

He must have been talking about Salt Lake City in March.  Upon waking this morning & looking out the window, my first thought was, "Snow!?! What the heck!?!"  Granted it's mostly melted now & we have joyous slush for the rest of the day; I was amazed that from one day to the next the weather could so drastically change.

But, my favorite part of this in-between weather is getting to wear my new boots. My SIL, Dawn, got some cool galoshes for Christmas this year. Since then I had my eye out for a similar pair. During a recent outing to Target, I found just the pair for me. (You may have seen them featured in an earlier blog post.) While I was there, I couldn't help myself & got a really cute pair for Cassidy as well.  They're hidden away in a closet right now but will make an appearance in her Easter basket.

Cassidy is doing pretty well with her potty training.  We still do diapers for naps & overnight, but yesterday she went all day with just one accident in the morning. Progress! I mentioned to a friend last night that I don't know if I'm "doing it right" but so far the plan, at current, is that my phone is set to go off every so many minutes (we're up to a half hour today) & she knows to go sit on the potty when she hears the timer go off.  So far, so good! We'll keep you posted!

Sounds like you are doing potty training perfectly. I love those boots...almost bought them for my L. :)

Thanks for the affirmation - today was a good day, no accidents! Now to see if she can do as well at her babysitter's house for the next two days. It's totally stressful...not to mention time consuming!
