We’ve been trying to potty train Evan. What that’s resulted in is Evan “potty training” Mia:

One of our favorite outdoor places to play is the Morton Arboretum. It was a bit cool, but it was partly sunny and we needed something to do so we headed to the Children’s Garden. We haven’t been in a few months, so it was fun to see how much more Evan can do now and to see Mia actually explore (the last time we were there she wasn’t moving).
Just a typical meal in the Kantowski household…
The weather is pretty lousy, so Lindsay took the kids to KidsTown this afternoon to burn some energy. At any kids play place like that, sharing can be a challenge. A little girl came and took Mia’s horse (from home), and Evan saw it go down. He calmly walked up to the little girl and took the horse back and said “no, that’s Mia’s” and returned it to his little sis. Our little hero!
This is Hoppy. He enjoys snack time, swings and reading books.
They are currently Evan’s best friends. He enjoys human kids as well, but these two are definitely the ones he’s bonding with the most lately.
He takes them for walks:
They have snacks together:
Tuesday morning “fun”
I open the door to Evan’s room and to my surprise, Evan was standing there buck naked.
Mommy: “Evan what happened to your diaper?”
Evan: “Oh no, yucky butt!”
Mommy: “Did you take your diaper off?”
Evan: “Dep (evan’s version of “yes”. Yucky diaper. Stinky diaper!”
Mommy: “Evan, only mommy and daddy are allowed to take off your diaper.”
Evan: “Yucky butt mommy. I helped!”
He was so proud of himself, I couldn’t be mad. And, he fortunately didn’t get the poop anywhere. However, he now sleeps with his sleep sack on backwards during nap and night time to avoid dealing with this again 🙂 Sometimes mommy is smarter than a 2 year old.
