The Rewards of Her "Labor"!

Today is a moment for the history books.  Besides being the birthdate of Rosa Parks and Dan Quayle, it is also the day that the patent was released for the first demountable tire-carrying rims. otherwise known as wheels.  Furthermore, the largest non-profit recreational resource organization for the United States military, the USO, was created on this day.

And here's another one to add to the list of memorable events.  As you may recall, one of my New Year's Resolutions this year was to potty-train Grace.  Well, today she/we managed to hit the target with a stinky. 

I was so excited, I was running around squealing, so she got excited and we broke out the stickers and M&Ms.  This is definitely a real treat, that holds the possibility of at least 15 minutes of uninterrupted delight and entertainment.  I was amazed at all the places a sticker could be placed before its "stickiness" starts to wear off. 

Here's a sample of her choices:

As a facial accessory...

As a wardrobe accessory...

This was a most welcome encouragement to this mommy, as I was beginning to be a little "weary in well doing."
