Secret Flawless deodorant for .29/each
Loreal Vive Shampoo/Conditioner for .99/each.
I love saving this much money and it was great bringing a bag home and asking Joel to guess how much I spent. He guessed $15.00 and I was able to say $4.00.

Seriously, is this a story that he's heard? Surely, he couldn't make this up. I'm going to ask his teachers if they've read a story about space because we don't have a space story here at home and I just find it hard to believe that he could come up with this all on his own. I can't believe he turns three in just two days. It seems like yesterday that we were welcoming him into the world.
I also wanted to mention that while at Target, I saved a grand total of $16.31 with coupons. I was pretty stoked about this. It was about half off what I would have spent had I not used coupons. The coupon system is working!

We had his three year checkup this past week. His doctor always comments on his sparkly eyes. Ty's eyes are one of my favorite features of his. She then asked him old he was. He started to say two, then he stopped himself and said. "I most three." I think that kind of suprised her, it suprised me because I didn't think he knew that. She then said that's right, you have a birthday coming up. What do you want for your birthday. His response, I could anticipate. "Soccer" He's obsessed with sports.

"I'm mad at you because you told me I had to go into timeout."
I had given him an ultimatum. He didn't actually end up in timeout but it was close. He didn't want to eat dinner and he was in general being pretty rude. So I gave him the choice, he could sit down at the table nicely or he could sit in timeout. He had to the count of three to make that choice or I would make it for him. I can sound so tough sometimes. I got to one and he was at the table. A few minutes after I got him in the chair, was when he told us he was mad at us. He included Daddy in his anger too. A few minutes after this he told us he wasn't mad anymore. At least he gets over it quickly.

He then cried when I wouldn't let him wear the pants after he fell in the toilet with them on. That happend when I got him home in the afternoon. He tells me that he needs to go potty, but he wants to do it himself. Fine by me, the less I'm involved in the whole process the better. He needs me to turn on the bathroom light and then orders me back to the living room. I leave and a few seconds later, I hear screaming coming from the bathroom. I rush in there thinking that he slammed his hand in the toilet lid or something like that, only to find him with his little butt all the way inside the toilet and pretty much just his legs sticking out. I know I shouldn't have, but I couldn't keep myself from laughing. It was just too funny. He did not see the humor in the situation and was still crying when I pulled him out. After that he was too scared to go on the big potty and used his little potty instead. I still can't help but laugh whenever I picture it.

Tyler: "But I'm thirsty..."
Me: "Then you can have apple juice, milk, or water."
Tyler: "but those will make me cold."
Me: "And dr. pepper won't?" (saracastic tone is starting to be used) "Well, then you can have hot chocolate."
Tyler: "But that's hot."
Me: "I suppose that Dr. pepper is just right, then."
Needless to say he didn't get the Dr. Pepper, no matter how good or sound his argument was. Earlier today, he tried to get out of cleaning his play doh by saying that "it would make him dirty" You've just been playing with it, I think its too late on the dirty argument.
He just cracks me up with some of the things he says.
