I need to shout to someone. It's been a great day and truly, a reflection of how limited my life has become.

1. Baby Bean only woke up to feed once last night!!!! Of course, like all mothers of children who, to put it kindly, aren't great night sleepers, I woke up and checked that he was alive several times and I woke up with one breast that felt like it was going to rupture at any moment BUT I GOT 5 HOURS SLEEP UNINTERRUPTED!!! Please let this be a foreshadowing of things to come.

2. Pk pooped on the potty twice yesterday and 3 times today. It's hard to explain the significance this has for me. I had just about resigned myself to changing her diapers when she is in high school and whenever the subject of poop came up, she would dig in. Wednesday evening, we did what you aren't supposed to do and took her diapers away (she gets one at night to sleep in). She was HYSTERICAL and begged and pleaded to have it back but then went on to have no accidents, yesterday she did two poops and had no accidents with only her nap and bedtime in a diaper and today, there was only one accident. I had called my mother, despondent about the potty situation and my prayer warrior went to work. Dad called yesterday to tell me that mom had gotten him on the praying bandwagon as well and that he was fairly certain that it was the first and last time in his life that he will pray that someone poops.

It's amazing what pleases small minds these days.


  1. woo hoo for poop and full breasts!!

  2. It's not about having a small mind, honey, it's about the fact that these things have a major impact on your day-to-day. SO glad for the sleeping! Amazing what a huge difference that makes. Yay!

  3. I am so happy for you! I haven't started potty training.

  4. Congrats for you and your kids! Awesome!

    Ugh... potty training... I gave up a while back and am not sure when I want to attempt it again. Yet, I HATE changing M's poopy diapers. Ugh...

    Hopefully your girl is now out of diapers for good! :)
