Yesterday I ran some errands with my boys and had to define "errands."

At the dry cleaners:

Now it's time for grocery shopping! There was a cuter sight of them sitting on the sidewalk waiting for me to get the reusable shopping bags from the car, but I failed to capture that memory. Judah was sucking his thumb, watching me walk back and Josiah and Jadon were goofing off next to him. Here they are walking from the parking lot into Albertson's:

Two Milestones

1. Josiah lost his first tooth!
Josiah: Mama, is the tooth fairy real?
Me: (hesitating) No.
Josiah: It's just for fun?
Me: Yeah, it's just for fun.

I'm so glad he was totally fine with that! He was telling me earlier about his friend Collin who received $5 from the tooth fairy last year. I said he would definitely not be getting $5!

Later on before bedtime...

Jadon: Is Goa-Goa going to put his tooth under his pillow?
Me: Probably
Josiah: Mama, can I have a reward for my tooth?
Me: We'll see. I have to talk with Baba about it first.

2. Judah poops in the toilet now! (Well, at least for the last couple of days...)

Judah: Poo-poo
Me: Ok, let's go to the chee-sau (bathroom in Chinese)
Judah: Tay! (ok)

I sat with him on the first day, left him alone for the second day, then sat with him today! Yay! He's 5 days shy of being 22-months old. I hope this continues so there will be no more diapers to buy!

And here are all three of the boys on a walk around the block with Misty, then playing soccer in the front yard.
