It just occurred to me. This year will be the first year Gage will actually want to eat his Halloween candy. Last year he ate one lollipop and went to bed since he was a little over a year old. That means I am going to have to check EVERY piece for razors and poison…
Today I woke up with allergies and all gross and full of sinus congestion. So I was all like school:
So I slept in a little and woke up to my child raging about something and throwing chairs and a golf club at my grandmother.
The potty training begun at this time and it appeared to be going NO WHERE. It actually seemed like we were moving backwards. Yesterday he would tell me AFTER he peed and he would sit on his potty AFTER he peed in his underwear. He was at least making an effort. It seemed like he was getting the concept just wasn’t able to hold it long enough to get to the potty in time. This morning he just didn’t seem to be trying. So I didn’t feel good, I was tired so this morning I just wanted to give up. His dad was supposed to come over and help but then he called that he was sick so he wasn’t coming so by like noon I was just super stressed because I didn’t feel good and I didn’t know if Gage was ready or not.
I had a bag full of new cars I had saved to bribe him into peeing in the potty. He had raged because I refused to give him one for no reason earlier in the day. So I had him running around the house naked and finally he said “Mom! PEEP!” and I ran grabbed him and sat him on the potty and he peed! Then he did it the rest of the day!!
We went to Target and I bought him an Elmo potty coloring book that comes with a Potty chart and an Elmo potty DVD. I am so proud. I don’t know what tomorrow brings. If we have to start all over tomorrow or if he remembers to go in the potty.
