.... I honestly don't. While other bloggers are filling their blogs with interesting things like theology debates, political issues, and olympic opinions , I can find nothing better to blog about than potty training. But hey, I'm a stay at home mom, this is my life.....
My day was going fine, until about 12:30, when Noah had a very sudden, full diaper, and leaked all over my clothes. Then, Eli (who is rebelling against potty training,) made a mess of his own in the hallway (I'm talking smeared all over my carpet!). Then, while cleaning that up, he managed to pee all over my bed-room carpet and some of the baby's stuff that was on the bottom of the changing table. I finally got ALL of that cleaned up, and Cosette announced that she had clogged the toilet---with about a half a roll of toilet paper! Oh, and then Eli went pee-pee in his pants again. Did I mention that ALL of this happened in the space of about twenty minutes??
So what to do with my difficult Eli boy? I have NO CLUE! We've tried positive reinforcement, we've consistently tried discipline when he insists on making messes---I've stuck to it, even with the birth of a new baby. And, no luck. Yes, he will be trained one day. And right now, the opinion of his mama is, better soon than later!
The messes are cleaned up, I've had a chocolate chip cookie to save my sanity, and the kids are peacefully watching a movie before nap-time. (No, not the best way for them to spend time, but sometimes, a mama just needs a break!) And now, I am greatly looking forward to a hot cup of cocoa and a good back rub from my husband tonight. This mama deserves it!
