It's exciting plans for the day.
I signed up for the Good Reads 2011 Reading Challenge and challenged myself to read 50 books this year!! We'll see how that goes. I'm just about to finish my 2nd book.

Ethan is definitely hitting that 3 year old NIGHTMARE know, the one where everyone told me TWO was NOTHING, wait 'til 3...we have arrived...a few weeks prior to his birthday. Oh joy!! Can we please fast forward one year? He has been SUCH a monster the past few days...good thing he's super cute.

We are doing well with potty training on #1. #2 is a WHOLE 'NOTHER STORY and I'm about at wits end. WTH do I have to do to get this kid to take a dump on the potty and NOT in his undies...It's SOOOOOO freakin' disgusting...way worse than a dirty diaper IMO. Help!

I tried out for a scrapbooking design team at my local scrapbook store...first time ever doing this...I'll find out on January 31 if I get in, but the talk on the street is that I made it!! Hooray!!

I recently took a MUCH needed 'mental health' day...while it was lovely, it went by too fast and I fear that it will just make next week that much more difficult, even though it's only a 4 day work week. Ugh.

Received the (almost) perfect job opening in my email today...the downer is the location is a bit far and it's only a temporary position from March -August...if only it were May-August...then I could do it over the Summer when school is out. Phooey!!

I'm slowly working on putting together some 'scrapbook camps' for the students at my school to take place the first couple weeks of Summer. If I haven't found a permanent job somewhere else, these should be a lot of fun to do and I'm getting excited about them.

And here's a recent layout I put together...I feel like it needs something more, but not sure what.

Disclaimer: I am WAY behind on scrapbooking, these pictures are from August 2009!!

Three & Four (sorry) were my least favorite ages when I did daycare.

Have you asked him why he won't go on the potty/prefers his undies? It's a long shot (everything is at 3) but he might tell you. That would be a starting point. What about if he got to take a book with him? Would that help maybe? I realize I'm just grasping at straws here but it's all a shot in the dark with every kid being different.
