Someday I will write a book

Adie Lynn will be the main person in this book...and how I survived her childhood. Of all kids, she is going to have the best stories or I should say, I will have the best stories to tell.

Yesterday I cleaned out the girls' closet, drawers and all of my tubs of clothes. We did the great SWITCH OUT! It was crazy...clothes everywhere, kids coming in and out, but we did it! It was a warm fuzzy feeling until I stepped out of the bedroom.

Little bits of finely grated cheddar cheese greeted me when I looked out.

hmmmm....Adie?

I kept walking down the hallway to find more and more cheese - EVERYWHERE.

When I found her she said, "I hunree."

This wasn't the two cup bag of cheese from Coborns...it was the 10 cup from Sam's Club.

But now I should back up and tell you that for the past week she has been taking her diaper off before she falls asleep at night. What can I say? She likes to sleep nude. This is all fine and dandy if she was night trained. Now I have to wait until she wakes up to change the complete bedding set. Many of you might be thinking why not wake her up and put a diaper on her? Now for most children this would work, but this would throw her into a temper tantrum in which she would tear that diaper off again so I am back to where I started.

She did this again last night...and ended up sleeping with me because I couldn't get her to calm down, keep her diaper on and go to sleep.

Oh one more thing...She was pretty much potty trained a month ago and now all she wants is diapers during the day. BUT- as soon as she does her business...OFF with the diaper! So - she walked down the hallway from the kitchen to tell me, "I poop! I pooped Momma."

Too late...out comes Mr. Clean!

These are the events of the past 24 hours.

Of my girls, I am the most curious as to what God has called Adie to do with her life. I pray it is something wild and crazy for Him.

Oh Angel...I can sooooo relate! I often pray for patience and pray that God has something great in store for a little boy that is more curious then Curious George and thinks of crazier things then Dennis the Menace...if you write a book we could write half about Adie and the other half on Seth...and if they get married we will start our own support group!!! :)

Those little ones are so cuuuuuuute.
Little Adie reminds me of my 2 year old grandson, Ethan. He got into a jar of vaseline about two weeks ago and proceeded to vaseline the dog and had gobs of it in his hair. Kathy had quite a time getting it out. He is a real go getter and into everything.
Just wondering if you wanted things prepriced for your rummage sale. I will try and get some things up to you. Auntie Jan

I thought I was reading the biography of my youngest -- one in the same. I swear if God had given her to me first, she may have been an only child!
