Timmy Peed in the Potty!

Yep, that's right. My big boy Timmy peed in the potty. I have been trying for months to get him to pee in there, but he wouldn't sit there long enough to pee, and my timing must have been off.

I went to library to try to get a book I've been wanting, and ended up looking in the kids' videos section and found Once Upon A Potty-For Him. So, I brought it home and we watched it together with my input. Then I brought his potty out (with apple juice in it, Timmy didn't know) and I put Elmo on the potty and asked him to pee. Then I showed Timmy what Elmo "did". Then we flushed it away and rinsed it out. I put Timmy on the potty with no diaper and replayed the video. It was about halfway over, when I put Timmy's hand in warm water, and then he peed! I was so excited, and so was Timmy. I put big boy underwear on him later in the day which he had an accident in, but he peed in the potty three times that day. I'm so proud of my big boy!

It's Always Sunny Under My Umbrella

See that happy woman on the box? Yep, that's me. I've been taking my Levity vitamin for over two weeks now, and I've never felt better.
That's me too! Yup, it's always sunny under my umbrella! My e-friend Jenny recommended these vitamins, and I am so happy she did.
I am cleaning my house because I want it to be clean, not just because it's in my job description. I've not been as short with my kids as I had been in my sleep-deprived, wanting-my-body-back state. I've been more patient with my hubby. I have the energy to run an arrand AND take my kids to the playground in the same day. Even pushing that giant double stroller across the uneven sometimes wet grass doesn't get me. I've even got other serious issues in my life which would otherwise be the end of the world practically. But, I cannot let other people's actions affect me in my happy Levity bubble.
Bring it!
