the walter's are heeere!

yay my sister is here.her little family has nestled theirselves into my parent's house for the time being.and saylor is going crazy for emily's toys it's like he's at disneyland.
so i put saylor on a little potty pretty often and the last couple months he goes about twice a day on there.he has a sign for it and has done the sign a couple times. then yesterday he went potty after a nap.then we ate lunch, hung out, went to the library and played...we came home and he pointed to his potty and made the sign for going potty.i put him on and he went! and his diaper was dry! this morning colin was with him and he said that saylor dragged the potty over to him and then made the sign!! then of course went. he later went potty on the 'real' toilet with me! holy cow. he's 14 months old.i'm impressed. i still do not expect or even hope to have him potty trained anytime soon but i do so love that he knows what it's all about and that he likes doing it. [we are still working on poo's. he's done that maybe 3 times but not really purposefully].
tonight all starbucks across america will be closed for 3 hours so we can do some re-training as we are making some changes in how we make drinks.so that's where colin and i will be.it is going to improve our quality of beverages [that's the idea anyhow] but things will be a bit slower.i realize we churn things out and are a huge business and in theory it's romantic to go 'back to basics' but realistically....realistically i had more than several people annoyed with me today because their drink wasn't as prompt as per usual...and those are our customers, should we not give them what they want? timeliness is top priority for people. hhhm this will be our conversations tonight no doubt.
and i finally got a new phone for the love.it's been fun and we discovered a website that offers free ringtones www.myxer.com. it takes exploring but it's fun! you can also use your own music and upload it.

if starbucks improves their beverages any more theyre going to take over the world!!

augustine potty trained pretty early (for a boy) apparently. *shrug* he is 100% out of diapers now and he started out very much like saylor so be optimistic mama!

I actually thought the meeting was okay. One thing that is nice about slowing things down and 'going back to basics' is that there is so much new coverage (CNN, wha?) that they will know what they are in for when they come in. Eh.
Off to myxer.com...
