Our favorite time of the year!

Goooooooo Huskerssssssssssss!

On the potty note, slow progress. K is sitting on the potty more now but only before bath time. Hey, any progress is better than none.

While waiting for the Poll results, sing along with me now (to the tune of Van Morrison's song "Gloria"):

P-O-T-T-Y potty
P-O-T-T-Y potty
I'm gonna shout it all night potty
I'm gonna shout it every day potty
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah,
Looks so fun potty
All right, feel so good potty
All right, yeah now

(Do you think K will buy it?)

We've managed a few times (what am I saying, K has managed) to sit on the potty seat. He likes it some times and other times has such an aversion to it you'd think it ate his cookie. So, I'm making a chart and every time he sits on the potty (regardless of if anything actually happens) he gets a sticker. Then, after so many stickers (10 maybe?) he gets to pick something out of a toy bucket (toys, suckers, etc). I'm hoping to get him to WANT to sit on the potty and I'm not above bribing him to do it. LOL.

If he p*es or p*ops in the potty, well that will be cause for celebration and I'll figure out what to do for that when it happens. At this point, I don't forsee that anytime soon.

Word to the J-O-B

J has gotten a job. It's not at the exact place that he wanted, but it's in his field and a job and we are both relieved at having the second income.

The p*sser of it all (well, other than him loosing the previous job) is that the unemployment office is a month behind in processing claims. That means he JUST got a call with the unemployment information this past Monday! Seriously, WTF?! If I was a month behind on any of my work I'd be sh*t-canned in less than a second, Y-E-T the government can take their sweet-a*s time. Needless to say, we didn't get sh*t from unemployment and I consider them to be a big f*cking joke!

Huggies Overnights 3:0

So far, so good on the Huggies Overnights. Granted, he's still desperately in need of a change when he wakes up, but at least it's contained.

Crunchy Frog

Yesterday in daycare, K was playing with rubber frogs.
He took them over to the play kitchen, put them in the toy microwave:

"Cook frog".

He then pushed the buttons:

"Beep. Frog all done. Mmmm, yummy!"

To be or not to be.....?

Opportunity has it's hand raised to knock on the door, however will it follow through and tap-tap-tap on our door . . . . . or will it change it's mind?

Good Riddence!

I don't recall ever in my life being so glad a month was over! July can kiss my a*s!

There may be something brewing but, like a watched pot, it's taking a while to really boil and produce something.

K seems to be handling it pretty well. While we don't talk about it infront of him (not that he'd understand anyway), he is pretty intuitive and has sensed that something has changed.

Anyway, we're hanging in there. By the hair of our chinny-chin-chin, we are hanging in there.
