Last night was another really bad night for Miles. The first tooth continues to push in and I suspect that another one is working its way through as well. So, Miles and I had a slumber(less) party last night in his room. Eric left early to go to a men's bible study at church. When Mason got up, he went running through the house yelling "Mommy!!! We got a new 'frigrator!!! Mommy, mommy, MOMMY!! We got a new 'frigrator!!" Yes, we finally broke down and bought a new stainless (to match the rest of the appliances) refrigerator, and a new washer and dryer. The fridge was delivered yesterday. The washer and dryer will come in another week or so. Mason ws there and watched it being delivered and installed, but he was quite excited about it again this morning. Maybe even more excited than mommy and daddy!

While they were bringing the new fridge in yesterday, Mason was watching intently. He had a couple of his cars (from the movie "Cars") in his hands. These two large men were wrestling the fridge through the den to the kitchen. Mason holds up his cars to one of the men (the larger of the two, of course!) and says "look, I got cars. I go poo-poo in the potty nad get cars!" The guy looked at me (probably trying to figure out if he heard correctly) and started cracking up. Yes, I bribed him to poop in the potty with cars. Yes, it finally worked. He no longer gets cars, but he still sometimes get a little treat for going. I have decided to pick my battles and this is one I finally feel like I am winning. The end justifies the means in this case!

Ok, Miles is taking his second nap for the day (and it is only 1PM... maybe I'll get an extra one out of him today!), so I am going to go chill out myself. Mason will be comine home soon and things will get busy again!
