What She Wore....Everyday!

Diva has a favorite dress. She wears it every time I wash it and I can't be positive, but she may even be getting it out of the dirty clothes basket. I took this picture Sunday because she was so creative with her outfit and THAT DRESS.

The picture is terrible...sorry for that. However, you get the idea. She's wearing her favorite dress with bright purple heavy knit tights that have multi colored butterflies all over them. She's also been obsessed with side "pony's" lately. She is insistent that she have one nearly everyday.
Dress: Children's Place
Tights: Target
As I write this blog she came down stairs with a wardrobe change....I had to take a picture and she was proud to show me.
Brown Leggings: I have no idea
Purple Princess Shirt: Target
Lace Socks: Target
Gold Sandals: Carter's
Attitude: Her Father

Diva has a friend who shares the same fashion sense that Diva possesses. Her mother shared these pictures with me.
Getting ready for school--nice boots

Another school day I'm pretty sure

As a parent it is sometimes very difficult to let your child dress themselves or even go in public in some of the things they put on. But, I also believe in encouraging their creativity and independence so it is rare that I make Diva change out of her outfits. Sometimes I try to encourage her in another direction, but mostly I let her be. Mr. Mayer hates this!

Hurt So Good

Ever done something that hurts, is hard, and you want to quit, but when you are done it feels so good??? That's how this week has gone for me. This week on my fitness tour brought me to Revved Fitness.  And it hurt so good.
Revved is almost identical to Orangetheory. They do a combination of cardio and strength. You wear a heart rate monitor and the goal is to to elevate your heart rate and work in certain zones. The only difference I noticed is that Revved uses stationary bikes for cardio and Orangetheory uses treadmills.
Revved offers a 7 day trial for $10. I signed up online and went to my first class Monday morning. Monday morning came and was stormy, early, and a line was almost out the door when I arrived. Yikes! I signed in and wandered into the room. It was a BIG class. All the bikes were full, and there were people on rowers and the strength area. The trainer split us in half. Half the class started with strength the other half started with cardio. I got in the strength …

Day 2....

Day 2 was not without some frustration. We started the morning off strong. Owen peed in the potty first thing this morning. Carter waited over an hour and then pooped in his underwear. However, sometime this morning Carter got it. He started peeing in the potty. There were even times he would tell me he had to potty and we would go in and he would sit down and pee. He had three accidents all day after he pooped in his pants. Proud Mama over here! Owen had a lot more accidents today. It frustrated me because he did so good yesterday that today it just kinda went down the drain. I think he turned it into a game and I'm not real sure what to do about that. He would say about every 30 seconds he had to potty. We would go to the potty and nothing. He would sit there and giggle, laugh and wiggle around on the potty. Then he would get up and go play. A minute later he was back on the potty. Ugh....it was exhausting. And majorly frustrating for me. He only peed in his pants a few times t…

Potty Mouth

You would think I would be referring to myself or Mr. Mayer. But, no. I'm talking about the precocious little girl that lives in this house.
"I cleaned my room damn good."
Wait. What? That was the sentence Diva told me a few weeks ago when I asked her if she had cleaned her room. I was in shock. Mr. Mayer was stifling a laugh. Diva was dead serious.
A few days after that she came downstairs and told me to "Tell those damn boys to leave my damn toys alone." Apparently her brother's were messing with her Barbies.
We have also had the occasional "damn it" when she drops something or spills something. It was super embarrassing when we were at Target and she dropped a toy in the toy department and said "damn it." Thankfully there was no one around to hear her.
Diva's um...creative (?) vocabulary started as soon as she started speaking. She has always used big words, whether she knew what they meant or not. Mr. Mayer and I are totally to b…
