Between 4 cats, 2 kids in a potty training nightmare hell and oh yes, let's no forget moi - yes, my days are full of crap.
Justin is potty training. I can say thank the LORD for that one. Joey, my oldest at 4 1/2 is STILL potty training. If I can get Justin out of diapers by three, I think I may just go out and buy a Mercedes with the money saved from buying diapers (I wish!).
Anyhow, tonight I walk into my bedroom and there is a TURD on the floor. Now I heard Joey say earlier to Joe (who is camped out on the couch watching baseball and was not moving), 'Dad, there is a POOP on the ground'.
Joe thought he was goofing off by the sound of Joey's voice and pretty much ignored him.
I was lucky enough to confirm - Sure enough, there is a round turd on the floor.
I walk over to Justin, and say, 'Justin, can I see your pants?'
He walks over, I peer down and THERE IS NO DIAPER IN SIGHT.
I walk over to Joe, and say, 'Uh honey - Justin doesn't have a diaper on'.
He gets defensive and says, 'I put one on him when he got out of the tub'.
I say, 'Yes, I know that but he doesn't have one on NOW'.
Joe says, 'Well he did bring me a diaper earlier and I thought it may have been one he found and I told him to throw it away'.
Well there we have it. Case solved.
Now there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. The fact that Justin is taking his diaper off when he is DONE pooping means he is recognizing he's done going. Plus if we ask him if he's gone - he will tell us 'yes' with a nod of his head, and he's always right - he really has gone.
Yesterday he actually sat on his potty and peed - all over the floor (we have to work on the sit down and aim issue) and when he got up, he stepped on our tile, which becomes a skating rink when water (or pee) is on it and Justin took a nice triple axel onto his butt right next to the potty. Poor kiddo. We'll have to keep that in mind if he goes again. Note to self, put a towel in FRONT of the potty.
Oh and if that's not enough, I had the joy to clean out both cat litter boxes for my 4 cats tonight. Oh joy.
SO there, that is why my days are full of crap. I know your jealous. Anyone want to swap houses with me? I was thinking, it's Friday night and instead of having fun with the girls, I'm at home dealing with poop. Maybe I should hook up with one of those pooper scooper guys on Friday night and we could have our own party. Ha!
Ok, onto another topic...
So I think I'm driving myself crazy reading diet books. Anyone who's overweight can attest to this. You read a book thinking it's going to be a golden ticket to weight loss. I am so over and done with that but at the same time, I'm sick and tired of being overweight.
Not only that, but I hate the fact that one day something is good for you, and the next something isn't.
I mean seriously, one day fruits and veggies are good for you, then the next they are full of pesticides. So maybe I should go and live off the land. I'll grow my own. Well the rain water is probably polluted and the seeds were genetically conceived.
Then how about this, I'll get a cow. Oh wait the grain it is fed is contaminated, or full of antibiotics. I swear I'm so done with this. Milk is good for you, the next it causes inflammation. Maybe I should eat cat food - or grass. Now, that's probably contaminated too.
It's so hard to peel through the layers and layers of information to find what IS really good for you.
Anyone with me here?
