Great place for playdates!

Jackson should sleep soundly tonight! We've been getting a case of cabin fever every afternoon since it's too cold to go out and play, and there's only so much physical activity we can do inside... but we found a fun place to get out all that energy today. We went to Jump Zone in Bentonville this afternoon. It's a big building full of bouncy houses. Jackson wasn't sure which one to jump in first, but as soon as he saw some of his friends there, he climbed right in and didn't stop for almost 2 hours! It only cost $5.50, which is a small price to pay for 2 hours of uninterrupted fun... and some adult time for Mommy! It was fun catching up on girl talk while all the boys played. If you haven't been, I would highly recommend it.. and give me a call before you go!

Potty Time!

I am so excited! Jackson just moved up to a new classroom and will start potty training at school next week! We've been trying at home and he'll go when he wants some candy, but not on a regular basis. I'm just hoping we can make it happen before little Brady gets here in May! The other night he told us he wanted to go poo poo on the potty, so we gladly helped him strip down. All of a sudden I hear this loud fart in the bathroom and then Jackson comes running into the room, happily telling me that he farted on the potty and wanted some candy. Not quite how it works, but he's kind of getting it! His teacher said they pick it up pretty quickly when all their friends start doing it.. so let's hope so!

Jackson just started swimming lessons a couple of weeks ago and he loves it! He's learned to blow bubbles in the water and he can kick really well! His favorite part is when we do Humpty Dumpty and he gets to fall into my arms from the side of the pool... he yells, again, again! He even has a friend from his daycare class in there with him. Jackson will definitely be ready for summer now that he has some new tricks for the water!
