I bought Keenan his first potty yesterday! =) We decided to get one to have around, so that he can get used to it, and whenever he decides he wants to sit on it and give it a try, we'll see how it goes!
Here he is on it this morning:
He'll love this picture when he's grown up... =)Nice Guy
While "researching" various potties online, I came across this! The Peter Potty Flushing Toddler Urinal...
We noticed yesterday that gas stations everywhere were Packed with people filling up, and we had no idea why. Then we heard on the radio that gas prices are expected to go up 90 cents, due to Hurricane "YIkes", and the possibility that gas trucks will be unable to deliver more gas soon. This morning after I dropped Philip off, I stopped at one of the base gas stations to fill up. I got out and was all ready to pump, when I realized they were all out of unleaded gas. I got back in the car and headed towards home. I was most of the way across base, when I noticed this guy pull up beside me and was waving something at me (weird!) I rolled down my window and he shouted, "I have your gas cap!" When I got back in the car, I forgot to put the cap back on and shut the gas flap and this poor guy had been following me for several miles, trying to get my attention so he could give me gas cap back! What a nice guy! =)
Tim Horton's vs. Sonic
I'm a little nervous writing this part, for fear that many of my Canadian readers may boycott my blog after this...As most of you know, Tim Horton's is an amazing Canadian institution, the hub on which the entire country operates, really. It's a donut/coffee shop that is pretty much everyone's favorite place to go and warm up on a cold winter day or to just hang out with friends and have some good food.
I was instantly addicted when Tim Horton's came out with it's Iced Cappuccinos (Iced Caps), an icey, creamy, not too coffee-ish cup of heaven, and have sorely missed them since moving south.
However, since I moved here, I also discovered Sonic - America's Drive In. Sonic has pretty much every kind of drink in every kind of flavor anyone could ever want. I discovered, not long ago that Sonic has a "Java Chiller" that comes in Caramel, Hazelnut, Mocha, or any combination of the three. It's sort of like a coffee milkshake, topped with whipped cream and drizzled with caramel. I think...just maybe, I like this even better than Tim Horton's Iced Cap. (There, I said it...) This does not mean, in any way, that I am revoking my Canadian citizenship, or that I have turned my back on Tim Horton's. While Sonic is fun, it is only a drive in with no dine in option, and isn't nearly as "cozy", and will Never take the place of Tim Horton's in my heart. =)
(Anyone out there who has also tried both drinks and has an opinion to share?)
