Our Trick to Potty Training Success

pottychart

We tried all the potty training tricks with Lucas–new Elmo underwear, bribery with candy, reverse psychology, and a potty chart with stickers. Even tried those little things you put in the toilet water for boys to shoot at when they pee. Supposedly, if it’s more fun, they’ll want to do it. Hmm. No luck. I …

Spring in Southern Maryland

flower-183087_150

We’ve all been soaking up the sunshine and enjoying this beautiful spring weather after an extremely long and cold winter here in Southern Maryland and most of the U.S. Nelson’s mother and brother and family visited with us over Easter, and we all had a good time, despite a stomach virus that we all shared at some point. We …

Yummy Multigrain Pancakes

pancakes

I’ve been trying to cook healthier, with less packaged foods and more whole grains and veggies, so I was happy to find this recipe for multigrain pancakes from an older cookbook. They’re a hit with the whole family, which is something I can’t say for most of the “healthy” recipes I’ve tried. The cinnamon and brown …

Free Online Tool to Track Chores

ID-100145574

A friend noticed Jacob’s chore chart hanging on our refrigerator a few months ago and asked about it. I had to sheepishly admit that I was only able to keep up with it for a week. It was a simple table I had created with five or six jobs listed on the side and the days of …

First Grade Science Project

First grade science project

  Jacob wanted to be in his school’s science fair this year, so my husband came up with the idea of testing cup colors and how well they keep your water hot. He helped him do the experiment, and I helped with the poster and wrote out the words so Jacob could painstakingly type the titles …

Raggedy Ann Comes Home

Raggedy Ann

My Raggedy Ann doll sat on a rocking chair in my old bedroom at Mom and Dad’s house in Indiana for about 20 years. A family friend made her 30 years ago and gave her to me after I’d been in the hospital. Actually, I think it was one for my two sisters and me to “share”, but after …

Christmas in Indiana

Christmas wreath

  We’re back from spending the week of Christmas in Indiana with my family. The boys had a fun time playing with their cousins, and I enjoyed catching up with family and friends who I miss dearly. Last year, it snowed, and we went sledding in Mom and Dad’s woods. It also snowed the night …

Peanut Butter and Jelly Waffles

Peanut Butter and Jelly Waffles

The schools had a two-hour delay this morning because of ice, so I had time to make these peanut butter and jelly waffles for the boys. They both liked them, so I might try them again. The recipe is from Taste of Home’s Kid-approved Cookbook. I bought it at one of Jacob’s school book fairs …

Thanksgiving in Canada

Thanksgiving turkey

We spent the week of Thanksgiving this year visiting Nelson’s family in Canada and had a nice time. We hadn’t made it there this summer, and Jacob had three days off of school, so we decided to travel that week. Thanksgiving in Canada is held every year on the second Monday of October (our Columbus Day), and …

Making a Train Cake and a Search for Ding Dongs

DSC03759

  Our youngest, Lucas, turned three this week, and my Mom helped me put together this cake using the recipe in my blog post, The Birthday Cake: A Few Years in Review. I think it turned out pretty well, considering I have little cake-decorating experience or ability. For the train, we bought a pound cake and cut …
