A victory and a surprise

A victory: I think it is safe to say that my youngest child, my baby is officially potty trained. After almost a couple of weeks of lots of frustration going both ways, last friday I decided to give up. I had it. She wasn´t ready. So I was going to leave her the weekend (and me mostly) and then think about starting again on monday..... maybe.

I guess something click on her head about 15 minutes before my decission, and since then, she hasn´t had an accident, she ask every time, for #1 and ·2. And although I do put a diaper on her for naps and nightime, no accidents have happen since friday.

So what I have to say................... PRAISE THE LORD!!!!!

A surprise: October 16 is mine and my husband´s 10 year anniversary. We were not planning on doing anything because we live away from family and friends and didn´t have anyone to keep the girls. Plus, I have never slept away from my girls, and haven´t left them with anyone for more than a couple of hours.

But last night, after church, I was putting the girls to bed and when I came back downstairs I saw candle lights, and a few snacks to eat for dinner. Afterwards there was a little game when I was supposed to follow clues that lead me to a bottle with a message inside.... I know, isn´t he romantic?.

So inside there was a little message about our anniversary....... You want to know??

We are going to ROME!!!!

Flights within Europe can be as cheap as 30 dollars!!! So Rome here I go!

My girls will be taken care by my sister in law and brother that have girls my girl´s ages. They will have fun.
