Two pictures today, I thought this fit together appropriately. Heee heee heee, Ho, ho ho!!
A quick update on baby Dels, we are on hawk mode- yeah, they said to keep an eye on her. Hopefully it was the milk I drank. I think she has a bit of a cold, but it's hard to tell because it's not like she's talking and playing yet, she's sleeping, pooping and eating- typical. She is still eating so that is a good sign. She's had a bit of a stuffy nose, so we are going to plug in the humidifier thing and see if that helps. She's still smiling at me so that is reassuring. Thanks for all the concern. It's nice to be reminded that I'm not the only one.
Oh and I have my car back- $200 later. The same thing happened last year, the coil pack needed to be replaced. We replaced 2 last year and now another one this year, there are 6 total, so to look on the good side of things...you know the glass half full... I am halfway done with replacing them, only 3 more to go! Yippee!! Ha yeah right.
On yet another note, I have been trying to get my 2 year old potty trained, she is being pretty darn stubborn. I was told by my mom that we were all potty trained before this age, she's too smart for diapers. I tried over the summer, but in my own exhaustion I put it all on hold. I could barely reach my own toes much less help Annie on a small potty. So here we go, I can reach my toes again and we are giving potty training another go at it. We took the pullups off and put on big girl panties. After being dry one day, going through 3 pairs of pants the next day and then 1 pair of pants, socks and slippers the next, I wasn't enjoying this much. My mom watched the smaller kids yesterday and I ran to the grocery store. Annie was in her big girl panties and Nana was putting her on the potty about every 20 minutes or so. As soon as I walk in the door, hands full of groceries, my mom turns around and looks at Annie: "Oh you little stinker, I was so diligent with putting you on the potty and I turn around and you go in your pants, you little stinker, I can't believe this, you're too smart for this, Annie why did you go in your pants...you go sit on that potty!" I am sorry, but I had to laugh. Here is my mom standing there in disbelief that such a cute little girl would do this. It felt good to know I am not the only one who can't get that child to go on the potty! Hee hee hee, Ho ho ho!!! *smiling smugly*
Writing this reminded me of what happened with Annie the other night. She had just gotten off the potty and I told her to put her panties back on. I was cleaning up dinner and since our bathroom is still completely demo, her potty is off to the side in the kitchen. So I am "kinda" watching her get herself dressed. She is having trouble with the jeans, so she runs over and asks for help. I start putting the jeans on and realize she has no panties on. So it goes like this...
"Annie, where are your panties?" Looking around puzzled, where the heck did she manage to hide them this time. I looked in the kitchen dining room, living room, Ah- they have to be in the toy room- that's where she puts everything, it's a mysterious room everything disappears in there. Anyways, I can't find them.
"Annie, where are your panties?" "Where did you put them?"
"Right here." *standing tall, very sure of herself, yet pointing to nothing*
"Annie, where are your big girl panties?" *hoping if it is rephrased differently she will instantly remember*
You can see where this is going. NOWHERE. So because it is so close to pj time I decide what the heck, it's not going to hurt anything, put the pants on without panties. As I am doing this I lift her shirt up to fasten the pants. As I do this I see her panties...around her waist!! She shimmied through the leg hole all the way up to her waist! As I notice them, she looks at me and smiles..."Right here Mom!" *I'm so proud*
