Priceless.

As an added bonus I did get to spend the day with the family shopping and just relaxing....ALL DAY. I love my new life.

Update on the potty training. Day two and girls dry as the Sierra desert. Wearing diapers at nap and bed time. I'm not doing the pull-up thing. I think by golly they just may be getting it!!! Yea!!!

That is priceless but heck you enjoyed yourself and got to spend a wonderful time with your family. That is precious.

Good to hear that the potty training is going so well. My own princess is doing very well in her training. I don't however dare take her on a car trip without the pull up.

Ha ha! We had our Chinese New Year celebration today, and then did the shopping thing! It was fun. We left home at 10:30 am and returned at 10pm. LONG DAY. Snowstorm made the ride home too long.

Yay you on not doing the pull-up thing. We ONLY used them for naps and bedtime, and called them 'NIGHT-TIME UNDERWEAR'. I couldn't do the diaper thing then, because I told Sophia I wouldn't buy anymore, and I'm a woman of my word!

We used cotton undies always, the rest of the time. Now Sophia sleeps her nap (IF she even takes one) in her cotton undies, and only wears her 'night-time underwear' at bedtime. More often than not she wakes and they're dry, but not often enough for me to ditch them yet. My other kiddos were a good amt older before the nighttime wetting stopped. I think they were just heavy sleepers, and didn't wake to get up and go. 8 Year old boy sleepwalks and still needs to get woken once nightly to go pee... will it never end? ???? lol

A free Saturday to shop... you're living the dream life!

Gail said...

I have to say that's something that I (we) would do too. Not that dh really knows what the schedule is on weekends.

Whoo Hoo for the little potty training princesses, they are doing great!

So happy that you had some time with your family, and you're enjoying your new life too. :)

Laura Nipper said...

Wow that is great that the girls are doing well with potty training. We have not started down that road yet at our house. Hope you are having a great weekend.

Jewels of My Heart said...

Oh, Rony, I am sorry. That is so something I would do. lol
Glad you got to enjoy your day together anyway.
Way to go on the potty training... that is just too cool.

Two Kayaks said...

At least you all looked great a day in advance! Glad you made the most of it.

Kathryn said...

That is sooo funny!!!!!!!!!!! Well you completed a dress rehearsal and are now ready for the real deal!!!!!
(Too bad you live so far, hubby is performing Elvis tonight for a benefit show for an organization called "Children of Hope")
If I had the b*lls I would dress like Priscilla with a giant boufant hairdo!!

Steffie B. said...

Oh dear.....you poor thing....where are the pictures? I want to see everyone all snazzy! ;) Stop by and see us going out for CNY year as well. We had a RSVP though, so we were safe! ;)

Bonnie'n'Clyde said...

That is totally something I would do. But only because I NEVER have a clue what day of the week it is.
But hey...long as you guys had a blast, no harm no foul.

Heather said...

LOL! We did almost the same thing. We got everyone dressed, drove all the way across town and the place was empty so we drove all the way home and discovered we had the wrong time. Happy New Year!

cougchick said...

Way to go on the dress rehearsal. You tard!

sweet-P's Mum said...

We did our CNY thing today...lots of fun! Sorry you turned up on the wrong day...I did that last week when I went to register P1 for her new pre-school. I sat in the car for 45 minutes waiting for other parents to turn up only to find out it was on THURSDAY not TUESDAY!...one of those deals where registration starts at 6.30 but you have to be there at least 1.5-2 hours before to make sure you get one of the coveted spots. Did I mention in was -25! ugh.

Oh my... hey... at least you were there early enough... oh and by the way and sorry to say it... you have been tagged... if I have to get tagged... so do you... take care

redmaryjanes said...

What I love the most about you is that you can tell us when these things happen to you. You can just put it out there for people to laugh and smile and just love you all the more.
Priceless story.

Cindy from central NC said...

I LOVE your new life too. I can't wait to see you ni DC in a couple of weeks for another twinny-fest. Hope your friend with twins can come....how about anyone else? I have decided to leave here super-duper early on Sat morning to arrive in DC by 9-10 am.......I think it's just 4.5 hours from Raliegh....will be a piece of cake driving up.....Yay!!!

love,
cin

Cindy from central NC said...

oh yeah and way-cool about the potty-training. Yay!! We're just beginning. Both girls will mostly do peepee......have not graduated to the big-time poo-poo yet.......When they do peepee, a micro-chip in the potty senses the urine and blasts off with a congratulations song....It is so funny!
Ah, the things I laugh at now...

-love,cin

jennifer said...

Call me when the dry spells gets a surprise shower...You'll be miffed.
It's okay.

Sam said...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Oh that is so gooooooood!!!!!!

YAY to the girls!!! Kieren wears Pull-ups at nap and bed only. It's the only way to go!!!

Diana said...

Love it!!! All dressed up and no where to go.
Must be the "twin" brain thing 'cause I too did the same thing except that I missed the CNY thinking it was the following week!!!At least you got a chance to go ...us? Missed it 2 years in a row now....guess it wasn't meant to be.
