Luckily it was over pretty quickly. But that Friday was pure hell. I was changing diapers left and right! Saturday they had less, and Sunday it had pretty much stopped. It was very exhausting. Also the last weekend before I returned to work. By the time I went back to work on Tuesday, I was so ready!! I saw it as getting a break!

Last week, we had crazy rain storm! And since we never get rain, they don't bother to put drains in the blacktop on campus. So it was like a lake. Last night we even got hail!

The girls are doing great, and really talking so much.

Ever wonder what it is like to have TWO babies with diarrhea at the same time?? Probably not. It's not fun. First, I had to pick M up from school since she had it. Came home, and she had some more. She even puked! A couple hours after we got home, the school called and S had some as well! I'm not really sure just how many diapers I changed in the few short hours that they were all home and awake, but it was far too many.

Dinner was an elegant meal of saltines, cheerios, and banana, which Maya proceeded to throw up shortly after she ate. They were a bit crankier than usual, but not too bad. And they have been drinking fluids. Hopefully tomorrow will be better. I'm really not looking forward to the thousands of diapers I will have to change and the screaming babies who try to fight me as I change their diapers. I thought having one of them sick at a time was rough. Nope! This is way worse!

This stage is so hilarious. The girls are talking more, know what they want- and don't want, are trying new things, and it makes for some very funny incidents!

Today, the girls were playing in the play room and I was on the computer. I hear S say, "puke, puke" and I wasn't really sure if she was actually saying puke- I'd never heard her say that before. Then I see her get her doll's clothes and she starts wiping the floor. I think, "Hmm, that's funny, is she pretending?" Then she turns around and I see puke on her leggings! Too funny that she knew what happened and she was trying to clean it up! Love it!

M has been obsessed with sitting on the potty. She says, and signs potty and tries to pull off her pants and diaper to sit on it. Of course, she never does anything on the potty, she just likes sitting on it. Well, the other day she was doing this, but she was pulling her shirt up. Finally, I decided to take off her shirt since she was trying so hard to get it off. I was occupied for a couple minutes then I look over and see M, naked, sitting on the potty! I think it took her about 30 seconds to get her pants and diaper off.

Every stage comes with new challenges, and there are plenty of challenges during toddlerhood, but I am loving it. So far, the toddler stage is my favorite.
