We had a couple of those moments yesterday where you feel like the kids have turned a corner.  As you might imagine, the kids needed baths after camping.  Noah had his regular bath and then Lily took over the water.  I checked in on Lily to find her with three bottles lined up on the side of the tub.  Amanda has started buying the tea tree tingle products from Trader Joe's and Lily really likes them.  She had her shampoo, conditioner, and body wash all ready.  Apparently she has gone beyond the Suave strawberry smoothie shampoo/conditioner/body wash.

Meanwhile, Noah announced that he wanted to try sleeping with covers.  I put a comforter on his bed since he is nowhere near ready for a top sheet.  Lily fell in the tub and that interrupted my routine with Noah.  When I got back I found him snuggled under the comforter.  But then when it was really bedtime and he got his blanket he didn't want the comforter anymore.  I put it down at the foot of his bed, but when I came in to have him pee one last time I found the comforter on the floor.  I covered him up with it after I put him back to bed.  I will be shocked if it is still on his bed this morning.  Nevertheless, I feel like he is making progress.  This is good because he is going to need the covers in a couple of months.
