So, when Kim was getting ready to come out here, she said that she wanted to take Erin to a children's museum and story time at a library. Sounded like fun to me! So we went to the Children's Museum of Denver this morning. We actually had a lot of fun even though it was VERY crowded.
They had a special area for kids from ages newborn-4 years. Erin really enjoyed it. She didn't want to leave it, actually, but we found out that they had a storytime there at the museum, so I thought it would be good to kill both Kim's birds with one stone.Erin liked storytime, but she was more excited that they got to do art afterward. The theme was "under the sea" and we heard The Rainbow Fish and The Pout Pout Fish. I really would like to buy both of them. Afterwards, the kids all got to draw an "under the sea scape." I think Kim had as much fun as Erin did!
When we got home it was time for Erin's nap, so I changed her diaper and put her to bed without her pants (as I've done many times before because it can get hot in her room). Well, about an hour later she started crying. When I opened the door to check on her, I discovered she had pulled her diaper off and there was poop all over the floor.
I had a feeling I should put her pants back on before I put her to bed.
And when Adrienne posted about Marcus doing this, I was so proud that Erin hadn't ever done anything like that.
So thanks to Kim for giving Erin a bath while I cleaned up everything else.
edited to add: I'm seriously considering starting to potty train Erin...only I have no idea how to tell if she's ready and no idea how to start the process. So anyone have any tips?
