So Zandria is kind of in limbo when it comes to naps. She has always liked her sleep. I thought that she would nap for a long time. It seems as if it may go away sooner than I had hoped.

This past Saturday she decided that she would have about an hour quiet time in her room instead of a nap. After the time in her room was done we were going outside to play and go for a walk since it was beautiful out side. Well......................

Yes my daughter fell asleep in the wagon on our walk.

It was sooo funny. When we got home we had to take a picture.

Now we know if she is really tired she will fall asleep anywhere, even on a bumpy wagon ride.

Here is one with Elias. Couldn't leave him out. lol

Wow is all I can say.

My kids never cease to amaze me. It all started last week Monday. Elias had to get his 18 month old shot. Ok so I should start when Zandria was 18 months I took her to get her shot and she did not cry and only flinched on two of the three needles that she got that day. She watched the needles go in and everything. I thought this kid is crazy. Elias is not as tough as Zandria is, he cry more and more easily. So last Monday I expected it to be a screaming fit. So we sit I cuddle and hold him tight, I look away as I always have, the first needle nothing. The second....nothing not even a flinch. The third, the deeper of the three, a little flinch. WOW. I was absolutely shocked. Unlike Zandria, Elias got very cranky for the next 24 hours after.

When we go for shot we go to a drop-in clinic were there are 3or 4 health nurses, and a dental assistant that does fluoride coating for free. So I took both of the kids there. Zandria sat there like a perfect angel :) haha . While the dental person proceeded to tell me that there is something wrong with her enamel on her two year old molars, and that she had cavities on all four of them. YIKES. She informed me that I need to take her to her dentist asap. Elias we must have asked to much of him that day already, because to get that fluoride on was a fight.

So that brings us to today. Zandria had her first dental check up. We tried to prep her on what would happen and she just said, oh ok, oh oh yeah. I didn't think I was getting her to fully comprehend, so what I did was bribe her. I told her we would buy her a treat if you was really good. So we got there and she did everything perfect. She had no problems they even polished her teeth. I was flabbergasted. I did not expect her to be so ok with someone having so many tools in her mouth. As I sat there watching her I realized that she probably would have been great with out the bribe. Shot. I still got it for her. But now I am like well do I do it for the cavities that she needs done too? Is it fair of me not to do it again?? Only if I would have known. What other 3 year old would be so ok with it?

My kids amaze me.

My daughter is 3 and a half years old. She has been potty trained since just before her 3rd birth day. She has been night trained since two weeks after she was trained, but lately she has been waking up in the middle of the night needing to go to the bathroom. She has not done this before, or very seldom. So jeremy is getting frustrated. He wants to put a night light in the bathroom so that she can go in the middle of the night by herself. I don't think it will work.

What do you think will work and does anyone have any ideas how to make it so we don't have to get up and help her.

I know this is all new to me the blogging thing. I do think that I don't have alot to write right now, but sometimes I do. I don't know how to post pics, but soon I will learn how or get someone to show me. Sorry if it is boring.
Hey So I have never blogged before, but thought it would be fun. I don't have anything to write at the moment, but I will I am just trying to figure out how to make it work, so have patience with me please.
