i thought it would be fun to fill this rusty dump truck with mini pumpkins and put it out on the porch. the boys have been having a blast pushing it around and dumping out the pumpkins.

we’ve been trying to encourage matty to go ‘poopy in the potty’, so the other day i picked up this really cool remote-controlled hummer at the store for incentive. i didn’t want him to think it was a ‘peepee toy’ so i explained that this was a ‘poopy toy’ and he could earn it if he went ‘poopy in the potty’. he proceeds to scream that, ‘it’s not a poopy toy, it’s a peepee toy’. and i reiterated that it was definitely a ‘poopy toy’. of course this conversation seemed completely rational to me but when i looked up there were quite a few people staring at us. well the joke is on them, because it worked! matty went ‘poopy in the potty’!! of course once he earned it, steve was having so much fun playing with it that i had to remind him it was matty’s. gotta love it!!
