But today - oh yes, it was bitterly cold, but it was Stake Conference. The kids were giddy to get to sit by dad, and I was riding high from our Saturday Night Grown Up Session date the night before. We went out for pho with a superstar couple in-between the hubs leadership meetings and the glorious 2 hours of uninterrupted listening to speakers (which included an apostle or two, so that was cool).
And miracle of miracles this morning, Thing 3 sat relatively uncrazed for the two hour meeting. It was amazing to not be wandering the halls trying to keep him quiet. He'll be 2 this week (can you believe that??) and maybe - just maybe - I'm seeing the light at the end of the crazed baby stage. THERE IS HOPE.

I keep waiting for a instagram-to-blogger app since most of us bloggers have migrated over to instagram, but no luck so far (you hear that, tech gurus?? Untapped market!).
Until then, I'll just screen-cap some. Which is kind of useless, since most of you follow me on instagram anyway.
But this one is worthy of seeing over and over and over. I was obsessively going over the alphabet with Thing 3 (I admit I'm a total loon) when he turns to me and says "poop." No joke. And his diaper was empty, so I asked him if he wanted to go to the potty. He said yes, which is in itself a big deal since he only just recently branched out from "no" as his sole vocab word.
And then yes, the ONE YEAR OLD POOPED ON THE POTTY. IT WAS MAGICAL. I totally Skyped the husband right then and screamed "POOPOO ON THE POTTY!!!!!" a bunch of times. I'm pretty sure he was in a meeting because I heard laughing in the background, but I have no regrets.
I don't expect this to be the norm, but even once was enough to make my winter day less awful. Have I mentioned how over negative temps I am?? Cuz yeah.
But seriously. Get on that app, nerds.

I'm going with Not Horrible. Then I got so excited I cut some layers into WonderGirl's hair at those look even More Not Horrible.
So now... Pinterest? I admit I've searched for some DIY color options... haven't pulled the trigger yet. At this point all those fire engine red options are looking miiightly tempting...
