I'm working on training Dylan to be self sufficient so I can nap all day long, but so far we are only making baby steps. He made his peanut butter and jelly sandwich *almost* all by himself today and once last week too. I've already got him dressing himself (Although I wouldn't have chosen shorts for the sort of weather we are having lately) and we finally mastered him wiping himself. He has also told me that he needs to learn how to read so he can read to the baby when it gets here. I can't believe I am going to have a Kindergardener in the fall!
On a slightly unrelated note Shane's friend went into the doctors for a check up and the doctor recommend the Mediterranean Diet to help him loose weight, so Shane has decided that he is going to try it too. After realizing that it costs more to eat a certain way compared to my frugal American way of cooking, he made a trip to the store today. Keep your fingers crossed that he, probably all of us, can stick to it.


  1. The Mediterranean diet is the bestIits not really a fad diet....its a good way that you can eat for the rest of your life and maintain it. It includes a lot of healthy fats like olive oil, right? You can do it! But it definitely is not as cheap! lol

  2. Yeah I know it's not cheap... and when I said we were going to have fish tonight he was like what? I thought you would like that. Then I reminded him that fish was one of the basics of that diet too. we'll see :)
