I've always wanted to own my own bookstore/coffee shop, and this is what I want to call it. I actually hate cherries, except fresh Bing cherries. But honestly, a hot fudge sundae is not complete without a cherry. It's just that extra topping that makes it perfect. And that's what I want out of life...all the extras that God gives to make it "perfect" or at least a little closer to heavenly.

The Joys of Potty Training


I've been away from blog land for a little while. Sick babies, potty training a 2 year old, and Christmas along with normal mom job stuff will do that to a girl... But I've been reading all of yours when I get a second and I have to tell you that I love blog land! It encourages me so much to read all of them--to share in your joys and frustrations and to know that you share in mine too! So thank you Ladies!

Here's a laugh for you today! As I said before we are potty training the 2 year old. My first child of course was the easy one--gave up his bottle with no problems, handed me his pacifier one day and never took it back, become interested in potty training at 18 months but was out of diapers in the early 2s.

My #2 child...not so much! He'll be 3 in April and he has his own agenda in everything so I've let him do things when he gets ready. With a new baby, I just haven't had the fight in me! But 2 weeks ago I read something that said most children are potty trained between 18 months and 31 months. So I sit and count up #2--He's 32 months and in diapers all the time! So I thought ok, we're going to do this. And he's done great! He's completely out of diapers even at bedtime! I'm so excited!
But there's one little problem...have I mentioned he has his own agenda? Two nights ago, I reminded him to go pee-pee in the potty. He walks right inside the bathroom door, pulls down his pants, and pee-pees in the floor. Since then, he's peed on a big thing of toilet paper that I set in the bathroom floor and yesterday he peed in the trashcan when he got up from his nap! I have no idea what's going through his head! The really bad thing is that I have to stop laughing before I administer the discipline! :)

Sounds like he's discovered his new "writing" tool. LOL

I know some of you will think this is gross, but the only way I could get my son to potty train was to let him go in the backyard everytime. That was his chosen place:) It really worked though! The only time it was embarrassing was when he went off the front porch when I was unaware and the neighbors were!!!

Bryce really cracks me up!!

I'm glad he's out of diapers - hope he doesn't find more places to relieve himself :)
