He's Finally Trained

We are finally finished potty training! Brett just turned three--and amazingly enough--after 10 years of working with poop----I'm finally free of diapers and wipes! Can you even imagine how good that feels? He's got lots of cute little boy underpants to wear, and he's really excited about that--which is really fun to see. He still likes to collect stickers for every time he uses the toilet, but hey, for me--I'm happy to keep it up as long as he needs me to!

Trifecta Of The Worst Kind

I'm sure you've all seen by now--but the "Death Trifecta" has hit again. First there was Christopher Bowman, followed by Brad Renfro and now Heath Ledger. All of these guys were younger than 40 years old, and quite a bit younger than that. It's made me really think about our family and take stock of what we've got. We are older than most of these guys--and live relatively 'safe' lives. We carry car insurance, health insurance, home owners insurance--but nothing to protect our future. How sad is that! I really do need to start looking into some life insurance quotes. If something were to happen to one of us, it would leave the other with some mighty hefty responsibilities with four kids and a house to run!
