Day 3 (3 day potty training method)

Sigh! I am exhausted from 3 days of constant vigilange! Jayne was amazing today though. He went on the potty 9 times and had 3 accidents. I tried to get him down for a nap twice and both times he went in his diaper too, but still a great job today. I'll have to admit that the second "nap" was because I couldn't keep my eyes open any more. We did wake him up last night before we went to bed and he did go. Plus we did "doggies" which would be shadow puppet dogs on the bathroom door. He loves doing doggies that get to howl at the moon and talked about them all day : )

We have done a lot of laundry these last few days. we started out with 36 pairs of undies and have gone through them all at least once. It has been amazing to see his progress each day even though Adam and I are both quite tense. Jayne still will not go by himself, but he is telling us more often that he needs to go without us prompting him. He also asks us to leave the bathroom more often now so that he can have some privacy, hopefully that will translate into him doing the whole thing himself soon.

Here are the results from all 3 days:

Day 1
Accidents:15 +1 from durring the night

Day 2
Potty:12 +1 from durring the night
Accidents: 6 +1 night and 1 nap

Day 3
Accidents:3 +2 naps

Even though I am exhausted, I am very happy with the experience. If anyone wants further info or advise from me I am more than happy to share. And I will make sure to update later on about his continued improvement : )

Homeschool Fun: Knights

It is going to be mostly pics today. We have had a fun start to knight week. Jayne played lego knights with his daddy and people knights too. We made puppets to play with all week long and Jayne has done great on his worksheets so far. There is also a new addition to our school! His name is Croci the crocodileand he is Jayne's new puppet friend for school. We were going to wait for Ziggy the Zebra with his all about reading class in the fall but he is to advanced for the level that Ziggy comes with so we let him choose a friend for himself. Now on to the pictures!

DIY Little Passports

Adam came up with the idea first and I loved it, then stressed about it, then hated it, then it really grew on me... I'm confusing, I know! We have been getting little passports in the mail for a few months now and Little Guy just loves it. We like it too, don't get me wrong, but for the $15 we are paying each month for the 2 year subscription we feel like we could do better. So the idea was this, let's make our own! I loved the idea, because we could do much cooler souvenirs and relate them to people that we know who have been there too. We could also go anywhere and better form them to what we are learning about. The part that stressed me out was that it meant doing a ton of research and writting the letters on top of everything a homeschool mom already does, I did not like that at all. Today I realized that I know a lot of people who have been to other countries. With their help I would have a launching point to write the letters and any kind of idea what kind of souven…

Bean Plant Experiment Finale

What did we learn? Sun and water give the best affect, of course. We also saw that water and sun are not equally important to plants. A plant can still grow and produce beans without water, albeit stunted. No sun and  the bean plant is doomed to death. Plants 1 and 2 both have bean pods growing now.
