Dotty on the Potty

So I told you the barbie bribe wasn't going so well in the number II department. But I thought maybe it was because I didn't have a good enough chart. So I redid the chart, and this time with the help of a computer...that is the only way I can make anything. And today it worked! One butterfly sticker is in the first box. 1 down, six more to go.



I think the beauty is really in the ability to visualize the end zone. Dotty picked out the barbie she wanted and she talks about it every day. The playground at the fun store is the day care at Ikea. I'll let you know how it goes.

Townes, Dot, and the Pens

So Townes can sit up.
Dotty is doing well and so are her friends. She turns everything EVERYTHING into a friend. Last night she put the pens in a plastic bag so they could "fly". We started singing "Tomorrow" from Annie (her favorite) and she immediately stopped and said her friends (the pens) wanted to sing too. She proceeded to sing along all the while changing her voice at each phrase to represent a different pen. One was really high and squeaky, one was very low...here is a video that kind of shows it. But I wish I had that song on video...

We have a goal with Dot that if she goes number 2 in the potty for a whole week, she can get a Barbie. She was really excited at first, but of course it isn't working because who needs a barbie when you have a whole bunch of pen friends?

A New Year


this is my goal

So 3form is having its second weight loss competition. $100 is at stake. This works out nicely since my friend Alysha has asked me to join Weight Watchers with her. Even though it makes me uncomfortable - I'm going to do it! Every saturday talk about my struggles, it sounds horrible. But something scary to be accountable to may be just what I need. Goodbye extra 30lbs. Here are the steps to achieving my goal- in writing

1. Pilates conditioning class tuesdays and thursdays evening
2. running 30 minutes monday, tuesday and wednesday
3. eat according to weight watchers and report every saturday morning.
4. cut down on sugar.- no sweets at work
5. one active family activity a week - skating, bike ride, hike etc.

Can I do it?

Townes

Townes hung out at 3form yesterday as a meeting got delayed later than expected. He had a fun time hanging out with Mikell
Thanks Mikell!
Oh and Thanks Casey for watching him all morning!
