Dad's and Marley's Birthday party

So we had a combo birthday party for my dad's 54th birthday and Marley's 1st.
The hit of the night was the water baby doll that Marley got. She was in love with it.

Didn't want to dirty her outfit so we had to strip her down.

Oh yeah and Dad got some large scriptures for his old eyes. Sorry, for some reason there's no picture to prove it.

The two pictures we bought

One year ago ...

How it all began ...
This is a look of shock - it was a whole lot easier than expected, to say the least.

We are having her birthday party this weekend along with my dad's. So hopefully sometime next week you'll be able to see pictures of 1 year old Marley.

What's this about a seven year itch?

So yesterday was Chris' and my anniversary. We've been married 7 years now ... crazy!! There's supposed to be something about the 7th year that you get a little antsy and I guess that's when a lot of divorces happen. Well I am still very much in love with Chris, more so than before. It's been a wonderful seven years with my schnookems!!Not a good picture of either one of us but it's the only one I could find on my mom's computer.

I have been having a hard time potty training Dannon. Do you know what happens when a toddler soils his underwear?!!! It is disgusting. The first thought that usually comes to mind is "Where do I begin?" Because usually there's a mess on the floor where he had the accident, down his leg, on his sock, and of course, in his pants. So lately I've decided I'm done cleaning out nasty underwear in the toilet. Instead I throw the underwear away. I'm done dealing with poopy undies. The response I've received from most of my family is "That's an expensive pull-up." Which got me to thinking ... is it really all that expensive?

A box of 88, size 4 pull-ups purchased at Target costs $29.99. That equals a little over $0.34 per pull-up.
On the other hand, a pack of 3, size 4 boxers purchased from Target cost $5.54. That comes to $1.85 per boxer.

So if you compare a $0.34 pull-up to $1.85 boxer, I could see how you might think that the underwear is expensive.

However, a pull-up cannot be reused, when underwear can. A pair of underwear has to be worn only 5.44 times to technically cost the same as a pull-up.

So if Dannon were to wear a pair of underwear 6 times and then messes, I say it should be economically accepting to just throw the darn pair away.

Now take into account that Dannon also wears some of Brody's hand-me-down underwear ... I would say that I am a very thrifty person!!
