The Beginning

Hey guys! So, I’m excited to share this awesome news with you! This is the beginning of my new “House To Home Series”!!! My husband and I decided to stay in the Middle Tennessee Area and purchase our first house. Our house buying process was fairly simple and easy until the week before our closing day. This was one of those situations, where you can’t do anything but get on your knees and pray! And pray hard, because there was nothing else we could do. And like always, God stepped in right on time and blessed us with our house.

We had lived in the same apartment for seven years. Do you believe that? Seven years!!! Oh, and did I mention, it was a one bedroom, one bathroom apartment?!? So, the day we closed on our house, we were having furniture delivered and started renovations right away. We’ve been working on our house non-stop to make it our home. I’m so glad to bring you on this journey with us of turning this house into our lovely home through photos and videos!!!

Are You The One Ready To Potty Train?

Hey guys! So, we’ve been potty training Micah for about 6 months now. But, if we’re talking consistently, I’ll say about 2 months. I wanted Micah potty trained by his 3rd birthday, which was February 27th, but we see that didn’t happen. I just knew he would be potty trained in 3 days like, so many mamas rave about!! Well, of course you know all children are different.

There’s sooo much to say about potty training and the slow or fast process of it all. But, my question to you is… Are you ready to potty train your little one???

Children are only going to be as consistent as you are, and that’s what I found out with Micah. I would start doing household chores and forget to send Micah to the bathroom, then get mad at him when he would pee on himself.

Wait, what? Exactly! It doesn’t make sense!!! But, so many mamas do this.

How can you get mad or upset with your little one for having an accident, when you forgot to send them to the potty in the first place? Before we try and hold a 2 or 3 year old accountable for their actions, let’s make sure us mamas did what we were suppose to do in the beginning.

Because of my consistency with Micah, he has been consistent with potty training. Well, at least at home because, school is a different story, lol. But, all I’m saying is, really make sure your ready and have the patience for your little one. This potty training thing is no joke, and your patience will be tested. So, get ready and put your seat belt on. Because, it’s going to be a bumpy ride!
