A funny story and some crafts

I haven't written anything in a while and something happened in the Derrenbacker house Wednesday that I thought was cute and funny and wanted to share. Since the story is too long for a facebook post, here I sit.

Kara woke Todd up (because she knows better than to come to Mommy's side of the bed) at her normal 7am wake-up time fully dressed on Wednesday morning. Todd was impressed, but this has happened before so he wasn't super surprised. She needed help with a sweater or something and then went to play in her room while I slept in a little and Todd took a shower. When he got into the bathroom he noticed the floor was wet...with urine. Yuck.

Here is Kara's story: She got up to go the the potty and just didn't make it. She had an accident in the bathroom. She tried to clean it up with toilet paper. Then she went into her room and changed her clothes. After she got partially dressed she put herself in time out.

She put herself in time out. What kid does that? A sweet one. See, we have been trying to teach her that it is not okay to have accidents when you are at home and just don't want to stop playing long enough to do your business. And she has been in time out a couple of times for not "listening to her body" as I call it. So she thought she was in trouble and why not just face the inevitable. That kid is crazy. And cute. Way cute.

On to other stories. Kara and I did this Pinterest craft (DARN YOU PINTEREST! You eat away ALL my free time!!). It was super fun and is now the first in our framed art collection by Kara.

I made this cuteness of a Easter banner. You can find the tutorial here. It was simple but took a bit of time to cut out all the bunnies and sew them. I had visions of completing it with Kara but she care to really help. Except to whine about how the "bunny arlan" was not ready yet. Her cuteness makes up for her whining...sometimes.


And lastly, my darling Sophie is two months. Actually she is 10 weeks. And her baby cousin Callie was born yesterday! We are so excited to see our new niece Derrenbacker!

Some other things we have been up to past couple of weeks....

Amazement square with our friends. Following in Mommy's footprints perhaps? Todd saw this and said, "When did you take her to work"...haha

Baby wearing at it's best

Spring is here!

Did I mention spring is here? And yes that bear has a super hero cape.
A visit with old friends. I miss this girl. And everyone else. This was the only picture we got of any of my friends that was any good. There will be more times and more pictures this year for sure!
Daddy's 31st birthday!
