new things ...

This week, our family is all about trying new things.

On Friday, we bought a new car - a 2011 Chevy Traverse, which brought an end to my chauffeuring services.

On Sunday, we became members at the Science Museum of Virginia. Most of us just expanded our minds, Doodle just lost her head.

And today, Dizzle started the first grade.

And although, my photo taking skills were lacking this morning, she still seems so much older than when I sent her off to Kindergarten last fall.

But, perhaps the most momentous event to happen to us this week is that Dilly has begun potty training.

It's going horribly. She keeps asking for her diaper and is calling me a "meanie," but we'll survive. Hopefully ...

Are you using M&Ms to bribe Dilly into potty training? :)

Love the sweet new ride!

I think if you get through motherhood without being called a "meanie", you haven't done it right.

Congrats on all the firsts!

Congrats on the new car. Hope you got a screaming good deal. I puffy pink heart my crossover (Highlander), especially in the snowy weather ...

Good luck with the potty training. We tried to potty train our son this weekend and it was a pretty big disaster. He we himself about 4x in one hour and I wish I was exaggerating. We decided he wasn't ready, but now I'm wondering if we should have given up ... ?

Sweet new ride. You suffered long enough!

Happy first day of first grade. Dizzle looks so grown up.

I love that photo of Dilly! That is the best smile. Don't worry potty training is easier with girls. She'll be a pro in no time...and forget you were the "meanie."
