Gone. Parents house. Potty training.

My husband has left me
for 9 days
to go here

{Australia and New Zealand}
for this super cool church planting conference.

So while the hubby is gone I did what any normal person would do

I packed up the kids and the dog,
and 9 days worth of stuff,
and went to my parents house.

The days alone with the kids I can totally handle.
It's the weird noises you only hear when you are home alone at night that freak me out.
I know I'm kind of a baby.

While Aaron is gone I'm also hoping to tackle a bunch of projects.
At the top of the list is getting Mackenzie potty trained.
I've stocked up on lots of potty training treats

and am ready to go.
The thought of having one less kid in diapers makes me giddy.
Hopefully it's an easy transition.

Wish us luck!

I so don't blame you! When my husband was in the hospital the hardest part was the nights, way harder than taking care of the kids- and more scary! Good luck with the potty training!

I do the same thing when my husband is out of town!! That, or if its just one night, my friend and I plan a scrapbooking/sleepover night at my house! Good luck with the potty training, it wasn't as hard as I expected!

My husband is leaving today for five days and I completely agree about the weird noises...that's the only thing that really gets to me...other than missing him that is. Good luck with the potty training. My next big step is pacifier removal
