Helping brother clean up his crap!

So we have been trying to potty train Taite forever now!  We have let him run around naked, watch spongebob for hours while sitting on the kiddy potty until he has a permeant ring on his butt, bought cool pull-ups, bought a fire airplane toy so he could see it and hopefully decide to go poop in the toilet, etc etc.  So when Teaghen poops he is excited to share with Taite to get him excited to do it for himself.  So the other day Teaghen was so proud to share with Taite, and Taite was excited to check it out.  After awhile Taite didn't come out of the bathroom so I thought I would see what was going on.  When I opened the door I realized that maybe Taite doesn't want to do his duty because he thinks it's to dirty.  He had proceeded to help Teaghen  by squirting excessive amounts of hand soap on his head while Teaghen was trying to finish up his business!  

Needless to say Teaghen needed a bath to wash his hair, but he decided that I should squirt him off with the hose instead!  I argued for a little bit and then thought WHATEVER!  So I hosed him down and needless to say Taite got hosed down too.  Just another day.

You're too funny! I probably would have done the same thing though...If they wanted to be hosed down so bad!
How fun!

Life is always exciting at your house! Someday, Taite will get it and then you will look back at all this and laugh. At least I hope so!

We so need to start hanging out more often. I need more of those stories in my life. How is being a family of 5 treating you now that you have had time to let it soak in?

I feel for you! Jackson just got potty trained and he's 4! And we're still not accident free! I thought I'd be sending him to kindergarten in diapers. I just pray that Sam isn't as difficult to potty train and Jackson!
