Earning His keep and Other Lighthearted ThoughtsJuly 16, 2007
I know. Hard to believe, right. Lighthearted? Me?
Well, seems ‘Friday the Thirteenth’ turned out to be a not so bad day.
It turned out to be more like this:
I know that I swore I wouldn’t talk potty until it actually happened…but guess what? It happened! (**Insert happy dance here**) Since Friday, July 13th 2007 to today…Monday, July 16th, 2007…We have had dry (and might I add quite colorful panties) on…and we have been putting our pee in the pot.
I know. Can you stand it?
I can’t either.
We threatened to get rid of him if she didn’t start using the pot. And she did. Talk about fighting for what you believe in!
So she’s been dry since. Puttin’ the pee in the proper receptacle and….And poopin’! Because you know, my kid is a genius! (I can’t believe how it just friggin’ clicked this weekend!)
She wanted to wear her panties but she wouldn’t pee in the pot. So we had to take drastic measures. Seems Dopey is worth more than I give him credit for. Never underestimate the love of a puppy.
Wish us luck. There’s no turning back now. It’s panties or bust.
I was just on the phone with a friend telling her how the dreaded PT was nonexistent. And that day she started.
Trust me, there were tears in the beginning. But once she realized she could do it….There was no stoppin’ her.
She’s all “Mommy I have to pee!” Mommy I have to poop!” and we run to the pot and she sits and goes…Like she’s been doing it her whole entire life.
I guess there’s truth in what they say about letting her do it on her own time. When she’s ready!
And she’s so proud! I’ve never seen her light up as much!
Oh! My girlie!
That’s all I’m gonna say about that subject for now. (I don’t want to overdo it) But you all know how happy this makes me…
On an even lighter note: Last night, The Pro and I took in a show. Yes!
I am more in love with this band now than ever before. We’ve seen them there once before but I didn’t know them all that well back then. And the last time they played there, Fa was a newborn and I was too messed up to go…
Fran Healey is absolutely brilliant. A showman! A musician! A songwriter…All of it.
And I got to see them play live!
They came out in colorful boxer’s robes to the Rocky theme through the audience and started paying this:
And then two hours later, they ended with this song again and This guy (Demitri Martin) did this exact skit on stage with them…Too friggin’ cool!
They played two whole hours of kick ass songs and The Pro and I boogeyed and shook our hineys and our throats are hoarse and it was phenomenal!
Now I’m tired and I’m being paged to go potty!
Ah! The small things in life. Yes?
