I usually refrain from posting 74 almost-identical photos of my boys at one time, but what the heck.
I’ve been making chocolate cake from scratch a lot lately for our various events and- to state the obvious- Silas thoroughly enjoyed his most recent helping. So much so that he smiled and posed when I asked to take his photo afterwards! You never know with him, just a couple of days before that I asked him if I could take some pictures of his curly hair but I might as well have asked him if could cut his left ear off and mail it to China. Anyway, I guess the key to his cooperation probably had a lot to do with the hefty chunk of chocolate heaven that inspired the photos in the first place, hahaha.
In other news about Silas, he’s officially two and a half and his favorite things are Batman, milk, sporadic tantrums, any kind of superhero figurine, the tiny heads of lego men, light sabers, puddles, and the like. He’s sort of, maybe, almost ready for potty training… We gave up after a slight stint of it last week when it was obvious that #2 wasn’t going to happen on the potty (though #1 was going very well). I wanted to be strong and hang in there and not break potty training rule no. 1 which is don’t give up. But Thane left town for a few days, I had an event to host, and- even without those things- it’s so not fun trying to potty train when there are three kids to keep up with all day, every day. Not to mention, it’s winter. But I know I’m far from the first to navigate this stage of life, so what about the rest of you moms, have any tips for me? If so, they would be much appreciated!
Happy Friday friends, and have a great weekend!
