First, Emm....she became potty trained this week using the Pee Pee Poopy chart. I found that when she didn't have a diaper on she would use the toilet when she felt the urge. Figured this meant she was finally ready. So...after school we (she more specifically) would go au naturel and when she did something in the toilet she got a treat.
Weeelllllllll, she's VERY treat oriented and thus found that the more she went the more she got. Sooooo, in order to save her teeth, the chart was made and when she reached the red star she got her treat. Now, at the end of the week she doesn't even keep track. Success!
|Way to go E!!|

Next, T has really amazed us all with his progress in French. I was blown away the first time I witnessed him jump back and forth from English to French. Now he speaks to his friends in French as well as people he meets if they speak to him in French. (even if he knows they speak English too)

Finally, mommy got an early Christmas pressie so she could make her cafe coffee at home. Love my new machine!! A DeLonghi by Nespresso. Makes espresso, cappuchino, and lattes all by the push of a button! (fresh milk, not the powdered in the capsule kind) Ahhh, I'm so pampered. :) Either that or J is thinking in the long run he'll save money since a cafe cream is about 3-5 euros at the cafes ($4-$6!).
George Clooney is the spokesperson for Nespresso here in France so fingers crossed he'll drop by for coffee one morning. A girl can dream. :)
