Fin de Semana / Weekend

Nuestro fin de semana fue espectacular. El sábado estuvimos todo el día en la casa realizando una que otra tarea pero, lo más importante fue que estuvimos nosotros cuatro juntos. Me encanta que aprovechemos el tiempo puesto que Pablo trabaja seis días a la semana y definitivamente los momentos en familia son únicos. Otra cosa fenomenal que experimentamos el sábado fue que luego de que las niñas se bañaron ambas pidieron usar "panties". Estuvieron con ellas puestas cuatro horas y cada una tuvo un accidente (aunque Sofía logró echar algo en su inodoro,jaja). Luego, llegó el momento de dormir y usaron pañales (lo lamento pero no creo que sea viable cambiar camas a medianoche al menos no por ahora).

Ayer, decidimos ir a comprar un inodoro adicional para las niñas (el que tenían me lo había regalado mi hermana) pero, al ver que el sábado ambas querían usarlo a la misma vez, decidimos tener otro. Pero, adivinen ya en Wal-Mart (ya saben, bueno sí lo saben verdad que es mi tienda favorita) optamos por traer dos, uno para cada una. Luego, compartimos con mi familia ya que mi sobrina Cary cumplió once años (Dios, como pasa el tiempo) aún recuerdo que cuando ella nació yo estaba en preparativos de boda. Bueno, fuimos a comer mofongo con carne frita (riquísimo) y luego al cine a ver a Alvin y las ardillas. Creánme que sino han ido a verla deben ir por que estaba buenísima.

Hoy, yo realicé diversas tareas en la casa (el trabajo en el hogar nunca se acaba). Luego, ellas decoraron sus asientos con pegatinas. Sofía tuvo un accidente y Paola, ninguno (debo aclarar que no fue mucho el tiempo que estuvieron en panties pero poco a poco). También realicé unas canastitas para el día de los Enamorados. Lo mismo las pueden llenar con dulces, artículos como reglas, lápices, bolígrafos o hasta para colocar los cepillos de pelo. Esto estará disponible en mi tienda Etsy.

Espero que tengan una semana emocionante.

Our weekend was spectacular. On Saturday we stayed at home doing a little bit of this and that, the most important thing was that we were all four together. I love it when we can have some time together since Pablo works six days of the week and those moments in family are unique. Another fenomenal thing that happened on Saturday was that after we bathed the girls they both asked to use panties. They had them on for four hours and each one had an accident (although Sofía managed to throw something in her toilet, jaja). Then it's bedtime and back to the diapers (I am sorry but I do not believe it is viable to change beds at midnight, at least not for now).

Yesterday, we decide to buy an additional toilet for the girls (the one that we have was a gift from my sister) but, upon seeing that on Saturday both wanted to use it at the same time, we decide to have another. But, guess what? already in Wal-Mart (you know, that is my favorite store right?) we opt for bringing two, one for each. Then, we had some quality time with the rest of our family since it was my niece Cary's eleventh birthday (God, time really flies) I can still remember the day when she was born I was doibg preparations for my wedding. Good, we went to eat mofongo with fried meat (delicious) and then to the movies to see Alvin and the Chipmunks. Believe me if you have not seen it, go because it is excellent.

Today, I did diverse tasks in the house (the work at the home is never finished). Then, the girls decorated their seats with stickers. Sofía had an accident and Paola, none (I should make clear that it was not a lot the time that were in panties but step by step). I also made some small Valentine's Day baskets. You could fill them with candies, articles like rules, pencils, ballpoint pens or even for placing the hair brushes. This will be available at my store Etsy soon.

I expect you all have an exciting week.

Tamela said...

I never got to decorate my potty! Man!

Jeremi said...

Yay on the potty progress!! I'm with you on the night-time potty stuff, Ella and Zoe still wear pull-ups when they sleep. I don't want to wake them and waiting 10-11 hours is too long not to use the bathroom.

Tell me more about the movie. We haven't done yet with the girls yet but want to soon : )

So cute on their potties...and personalizing them, too. That's smart.

I hope it goes well.

And, love the little baskets.

Annie...potty training is so much work! Both my kids were late in mastering the skills. Emily was 3 years 2 months and Brad was 3 years 5 months. Don't give up if they are interested!

Bethany said...

Wow! You did have a busy weekend! I want to see Alvin and the Chipmonks too. Glad to hear you liked it. Ugh...I think of the day I will have to start the potty training process!

Christa said...

I bet decorating the potties was fun! Such a smart way to get the girls involved in their potty training experience!

Lani said...

They are just the happiest little girls aren't they?
Good idea letting them decorate their own potties!
