Our Easter Announcement

This year for Easter the grandparents each received a basket with a SURPRISE in the bottom!

...So yes, we are having another baby!

And, if you ask Martin the real feat in this situation is that I actually made it over TEN WEEKS without telling anyone. I've never known myself to be so secretive!

I'm eleven weeks today!

Aubrey: (as loud as she possible can. Over and over for the duration of the song) ROCK AND ROLL! ROCK AND ROLL! ROCK AND ROLL!

Aubrey: Mommy, where are we going?
Me: To grandma's house. The bridge is out on our road so we have to ALL the way around the long way to get to her house.
Aubrey: (pause) Mom! I got an idea! When we get to grandma's house I can get my tools and then I can help fix the bridge! That way we can drive down the road!
Me: Ok, that sounds like a great idea, Aubrey.

arriving at my mom's house.

Aubrey: Great Grandpa Leclair! We need to go get my tools so I can help fix the bridge!
GGL: I think you're going to need some machines to fix that bridge.
Aubrey: I know! My tools are machines!

Potty Dance

Aubrey: (dancing around)
Me: Are you okay, Aubrey.
Aubrey: Yeah. I just have to go potty. Don't you know the potty dance, mom? This is the dance you do when you have to go potty.

within two minutes of Aubrey and Karalyn sitting down to eat dinner.

Aubrey: So, have you seen FROZEN???

some sort of conversation takes place, obviously resulting in a miscommunication, because not two minutes later.

Karalyn: (to Katie) Mommy, can you turn Frozen on? Aubrey hasn't seen it!

That movie is taking the toddler population by storm!

Me: Aubrey, can you please put a coat on?
Aubrey: I don't want to wear a coat!
Me: Well, it's cold outside. If you don't wear a coat you're going to freeze your butt off!
Aubrey: Oh no! And then I'll never be able to go potty again!

That would be one terrible side effect of freezing your butt off.
