Green Cheese

Sawyer was riding in his car seat one night a couple weeks ago, and was looking at the full moon.

"Mommy, the moon doesn't feel well!"

"Really? Why not?"

"Because he has a rash on his face. Poor moon."

Potty Training, Day 3

NO ACCIDENTS!!! No poop, either, but he woke up dry this morning and dry from his nap, and went pee in the potty every couple hours with no problems. We're so proud!

In other news, Sage has her first ear infection. I noticed her left ear was full of crusty yellow stuff (tasty, I know), so she went to the doctor. Poor little one!

Potty Training, Day 2

Two big accidents today, both this morning, and both after I asked him if he had to go, he said no, and then he ran away - and peed on the floor. But we did have more successes, the biggest one this evening when David took him to Circuit City and Sawyer stayed dry the whole time, including when he came home for a snack and an episode or two of Charlie and Lola.

The whole thing has been freakin' exhausting. But hopefully he'll catch on soon. Either that, or his wife can train him...

Some pics

I haven't posted in awhile. I know this. I have no excuse, really. We went away, then my Dad was very ill (thankfully he's rallying), and then the holidays...yada yada yada. Anyway, since I'm back, I'm going to post a couple pics. Woohoo!! We have a shot of Xmas eve (the first decent family shot we've taken awhile), then a few of the kids and one of me with my baby girl.

Potty Training, Day 1

Sawyer woke up this morning and decided he wanted to wear his big boy underwear. The following are emails I sent this morning to my friend L, who potty trained her son this summer.

9:14 a.m. Pee on the floor. Didn't even mention it to me - luckily I saw the puddle!

9:44 a.m. Pee So I asked, Sawyer, do you need to go potty? and he says no, and pees in his underwear 2 seconds later...

10:05 a.m. I had him sit on the potty (20 min. after the accident) and he pulled down his underwear himself, sat down and peed! Woohoo!

10:08 a.m. okay. like 3 minutes after he peed in the potty, he peed on his wiggly car. WTF?

10:25 a.m. He peed AGAIN, and it was enough to get his shirt all wet too (he was sitting on his tricycle). Does this seem like an inordinate amount of pee?

10:53 a.m. More pee! He didn't want to sit on the potty, but we bribed him with kissables and he did more pee. Yegads. This does not seem normal!

11:10 a.m. He peed in his underwear AGAIN! This child has had ONE cup of OJ today and nothing else to drink!

Thankfully, he wore a diaper for his nap. He had only one big pee accident after his nap - he was playing on my computer, and I asked him every 5 seconds if he had to pee. He kept saying no. Then when he was done, I sent him to the potty with Daddy who said his underwear was wet. That's when I noticed the puddle beneath the chair he was sitting on... He was then was dry through dinner and beyond, going to the potty at our urging at least three times. He did at one point cry that he wanted his diaper. I think the poor little guy wants to poop, but he didn't.

I was never more happy to see this kid go to bed!
