Taekwondo Tournament

The girls have been taking Taekwondo for 2 weeks (can't you picture how cute RainbowBaby is running around in her little uniform) and they were over the moon excited that there was a tournament this weekend that they could participate in.  I can't believe how much they have learned in just 2 weeks!

I've been trying to get EasternStar to memorize her address for months ….. apparently she just needed the motivation of getting a stripe on her belt 'cause she nailed it in 2 days.

Here is some video of EasternStar from today:

Her form:

And seriously the best part - her board breaking:

So proud that she broke her board into 3 pieces!!

Here is RainbowBaby:

And how awesome is it to see a 3 year old break a board??

Last but not least, TinyDancer:

Best quote of the day

We decided to give potty training a try for RainbowBaby. We use the potty training in three days method. There is a e-book out there that explains it. Except we don't do it for naps or nighttime because ..... Frankly I need my sleep. Trust me. Everyone in my family would agree. Three days with reduced sleep for me is not fun. For anyone!

Anyway, day 1 ended today with three incredibly successful ....... Releases..... One of which included done poop. Which resulted in my favorite thing of the day -

RainbowBaby - look I popped a banana!

Me - why yes. It does look like a banana! Good job!!

However it was flushed before we could get a picture. Aren't you relieved there is no evidence? 8 )
