Retainer, Wrapping Paper & Potty Talk

Bye bye retainer!! Emma has reached another milestone. Her braces came off last year and her retainer doesn't fit anymore. We saw the orthodontist first thing this morning and he said that Emma doesn't need a new one. We'll go back in August for follow-up consultation and make sure her lovely straight teeth haven’t shifted. For now, no more hunting for the lovely piece of plastic each night before bed. I can't tell you how many times that thing has been nearly misplaced.

Over Memorial Weekend, Josie and I spent some time outdoors painting with flowers and shells to make wrapping paper. We used finger paint, dandelions, chive blossoms and spiral conch shells to make our wrapping paper. The pictures provide the instructions. It was very easy and loads of fun.

If your squeamish over "Potty Talk", skip this last part.

"Josie, why are you walking around on your tip toes"?

Josie's response, "I'm pooping, Mom".

Yep. We still need to work on part 2 of potty training.
