At the beginning of the month of August, 2014 you started to go to the Potty with an incentive; purchase your own Crocs button Mike Wazowski and the Play Dough Ice Cream Shoppe. So far you are accumulating lots of money. You are going to the bathroom before you enter the tub for bath time and sometimes in the morning. If you sit on the pot and no prizes, you still get a quarter. If you sit on the pot with prizes, you get a dollar. So far no number two prizes as of yet.
Two of my friends were on the island, but I didn’t get to see one. You did get to meet Jessy, Patty, Mila, Alanna, Luis, and Manny who were on vacation the last day they were on the island. I saw a picture of Isla Verde beach and we’d just come back from grocery shopping. I turned on the computer and she’d taken a picture by the El San Juan. So I messaged her and we went walking to say hello. Prior to that when I told you about Jessy, you were excited to meet her and ran and skipped and jumped when we finally got to the hotel. You were pretty much running towards her like if you had seen her before. We were greeted by her and her daughters.
Her mom Patty invited you to the pool and we all went over to the pool. As you got accustomed to the girls and Patty, you were playing with them. But it wasn’t until Jessy asked you if you wanted to go in, did you say you would go with her. So she agreed and you played in the water with her and the girls. When her mom came over to the pool again, you went with her and the girls kept trading you on and off while Jessy and I talked by the pool. You had a blast and when it was time to go, you didn’t want to say goodbye and you practically headbutted me in the teeth. It was your way of saying you didn’t want to leave or say goodbye. Jessy walked us back with a towel wrapped around you and she got to see JuanGa and Raul.
Towards the end of the month, we were able to meet some business goals and Papá had been saying he wanted to go to Disney. He has been saying this since you were able to walk. I was not on board as usual with traveling but I talked to Carmelina, Ricky’s mom, and she convinced me that in life there are two things we are sure of memories and family.
So we are going to Disney with you for the second time next month. Juanga will be staying with Bianca and Fernando in Barceloneta and we will be at Disney in Orlando, Florida for seven days. It definitely is a great way to end the month.
You continue to go number one to the bathroom but yet to conquer number two. You earned your Ice Cream Play-doh Shoppe and a ride on the carousel in the mall. But you did not want to continue to sit on the horse and I had to take you off and stand in between and not breath because you had me in a choke hold. Nonetheless, it will prepare you for all the rides to get on at Disney.
You are speaking more Spanish with us and are saying “No Quiero” in both languages.
