It's Time. . .

Time for so many things to happen. . .

Time to finally make up our minds about where we're going on our vacation--we have it planned, and now just need to make our reservations;

Time to take the plunge and buy that nice camera--Aidan's birthday is only two weeks away, so we better get on that!!

And, more importantly, time to go to the store and buy Aidan a really big prize. . .

Why you ask?? Because. . . .

HE STAYED DRY ALL NIGHT LAST NIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Aidan has been potty trained, during the day, for over a year now. Night time, though, has been a bit tougher. Partly it's because he's a boy, and partly because we have been a little lazy in working on this. But, lately, I've been trying to make sure he goes potty after brushing his teeth right before bed and we make sure he doesn't get his Pull Up on until after all of that is done. It's been working pretty good, but he still goes in the Pull Up to varying degrees: sometimes a lot, sometimes a little.

Last night, I guess we were both really tired and I forgot to put the Pull Up on him. This morning I asked him if needed to change into his underpants and he felt his PJ's and then looked at me in surprise and said, Mama, you forgot to put on my Pull Up! But, I'm dry, so it's okay. Really??? Oh my goodness!! This calls for a celebration!!! We're so going to the toy store before soccer!!! Aidan smiled huge. . .

But, this leads to other things it's time for:

Time to go and buy the new bed system we promised Aidan when he stayed dry at night. . .

Time to totally redecorate Aidan's room with Rocket ships or Cars or something (and take down the cute Noah's Ark border. . .sniff. . .)

But, best of all. . .

Time to stop buying the Pull Ups!!!!

We may still have a wet night or two, but now that I KNOW he can do it, I'm really going to concentrate my efforts on it much more.

I'm so proud of my little guy!!!

WAy to go Aidan!!!

We booked our vacation to Panama City Beach about a month ago and now we are probably going to be dealing with oil cleanup. Hoping that it is all cleaned up by end of July..but things aren't looking so good.
