Potty Training – An Update

Filed under: children,parenting,potty training — by mommygoingcrazy @ 2:49 pm

Princess Girl’s potty training hit a brick wall again, so we are on a hiatus.  She does go potty when I’m putting her to bed.  I know it’s a delaying tactic but who cares she is using the damn potty.  You can’t force the issue and I’m not going to get into a power struggle.   She point blank refuses to sit on the potty or even wear “big girl” underwear.

I’m not frustrated, bitter or blaming myself, but I am ranting a wee bit. We’ll try again, someday…

As I am pouring cups for Sprite Zero for lunch:

First Born:  I’m lucky to have Sprite, aren’t I?

Me: Yeah

First Born: The whole family is lucky to have Sprite.

Me: uh, yeah

First Born: Actually you are lucky to have us.

Me: Sure am.

First Born: If you didn’t have us you would be lonely ‘cause Daddy would be at work.

Me: True.

First Born: You couldn’t have kid parties, unless you used pretended kids and that wouldn’t be fun. You can only do stuff with real kids.

Me: You’re right. (Smiling)

Please don’t go!!

I love my neighbors!  I have great neighbors. My neighbors are friendly and have kids. Neighbor girl and First Born are in the same grade and play together all the time.  I mean all the time.  She comes over in the evenings to read with First Born.   Well, they read for 10 minutes then break out the Pokemon cards, but hey they are “quiet”.  This last Sunday she spent three hours playing at our house then switched and played three hours at their house.  Oh, there is also Big J-boy, the neighbor boy.  He is 9 but plays well with J-boy who thinks he is the greatest, mostly because they share the same first name.  It’s a match made in heaven and it’s making the summer time fly.

There is one big, big problem; they are going on vacation next week.  So, I ask, how long y’all (my best
Texas accent) going to be gone. The answer:  for a week but (no not but!!)  Neighbor Girl and possibly Big J-boy are going to their grandmas for the rest of the month.  Now what am I going to do? Ahhhh!

Little Puppy

Filed under: baby,children,parenting — by mommygoingcrazy @ 7:33 pm

We have new little puppy, Princess Girl.  For the last couple of months she has been crawling around and barking like a dog.  She comes up and licks us, just like a puppy.  I love it so much, I can call “puppy” to me and she’ll crawl into my lap and snuggle up.  Two weeks ago she started to fetch books, in her mouth, for us to read.  Yesterday she dumped her cereal onto a toy plate and ate her food without her hands.  She then started to sniff at me like a puppy too.   

Her sense of pretend play is so amazing.  She has expanded the puppy play to include Baby Boy by calling him a kitty and meowing for him.  Lots of animal cuddles for Mommy!
