teddy bear tea
Who's ready for cuteness? Today we were invited to Jason's school for the annual Teddy Bear Tea. The kids had gone to the Stuffy Bear Factory (think Build-a-Bear Workshop) and made bears last Friday. Today they got to have a tea party with the bears and their guests. Jason has the pleasure of parents and grandparents who are available at the drop of a hat, so we came to enjoy a cup of tea. Jason's new bear is named Mickey. He is currently learning to deal with his new sister Cameron who isn't as gentle as his daddy, Jason. The kids were very cute during the program. They read a book about insects, recited the months of the year with hand motions and sang a song about going to the zoo. The class is going to our local zoo next Friday on Jason's birthday. I'm going to make cupcakes for the class and bring them to the zoo. Should be fun.
In other news, Cameron is learning to use the potty. So far we have accomplished sitting upon our potty seat without crying. Next up, the long wait upon the throne for "the feeling" to kick in. I don't know how else to teach that besides turning on the faucet and letting the water dribble. I'm also standing by with plenty of jelly beans for bribes. The goal is to get her potty trained so that she can go swimming in our pool this summer. The rule is no swim diapers, so we've got to get this done! I'll post pictures as soon as I can get a discrete one, so far she's very excited about pictures and not ashamed to take them.
