Happy St. Patrick's Day!
We had a nice St. Patty's day celebration- early. We all participated in the St. Patrick's Day Dash on Sunday. Rob did a great job at running while pushing Mya in the stroller... up hill 1/2 the distance! Little Miss has become a camera ham, learning to pose with a smile. She's pretty sweet!I may be the first parent in history to not be ready for potty training. I'm actually not too anxious to be done with diapers... I'm not ready for my baby to be so big! Mya is sitting on the potty at school now, so we are following suit occasionally at home. It's more of a novelty at this point- she isn't exactly connecting the feeling of going potty with sitting there... but she has successfully done it a couple times at school. I think it may have been luck, but ready or not, I've gotta accept that she's growing up to be a big girl! On March 5th we celebrated the wonderful day of being DEBT FREE for the first time since we've been married!!! In 2.5 years, we eliminated $48,500 in debt. Crazy, right? The fact that we had so much debt is ridiculous, but after a lot of tears, disappointments and a whole lot of discipline- it's finally gone! We still have our wonderful mortgage... but the only bills we have beyond that are utilities. Amen to that!!! To celebrate, we enjoyed dinner at home (a meal out wasn't in the budget :)) and Mya even joined in with "cheers!" to toast the big accomplishment.
