RKCP had to work today, so I was left to fend for myself with the kids. Things went pretty well -- perhaps I'm capable of dealing with my spawn afterall.
We started the day with a bunch of TV. (So, I'm not a great parent..) The usual faire of Dragon Tales and Aladdin, plus the movie Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (the Johnny Depp version). Then we went to McDonalds. (OK, I'm a bad parent.)
After lunch and a trip to Target (where I bribed them with candy and princess junk), we came home and put the Boy down for a nap. While he slept, SKGP and I played Aggrevation and a little catch.
Then, I took the training wheels off of her bike. I don't know how to teach her how to balance on a bike, and she didn't pick it up instantly. But she did pretty well; we had a 3 second run where I didn't touch the bike.
Eventually, RKCP came home and we went out to dinner at Mamma Mia's.
We came home, and as part of the bedtime ritual, EJP sat on the potty. He's pretty good at going pee, but tonight he got some poop out. Hooray! I hope this is a major step forward.
