my adventures

There was a little girl who had a little curl right in the middle of her forehead.
When she was good, she was very good indeed, but when she was bad, she was horrid.

"Elmo's Potty Time is brought to you by the letter P and the number 2!"

What's motivating Alex to become potty-trained:
1. Popsicles
2. His mother
3. Popsicles
4. Jelly Bellies
5. Popsicles
6. M&M's
7. Popsicles
8. His mother
9. Popsicles

(The moral of this story is that my child will pee for an ice cream.)

What's keeping me going during this somewhat messy adventure: 
1. The musical stylings of Kelly Hernandez
2. Popsicles
3. The firm belief that my son will figure this out at least by the time he turns 18.
4. Jelly Bellies
5. With the money I save on diapers, I can buy a new purse (which I don't need but definitely deserve).
6. Ice Cream

And finally, something new that I've said and am a little horrified by:

"Stop jumping like a frog so I can wipe your bottom."


  1. After surviving potty training, EVERY mother deserves a new purse! And, I'm glad to see you're rewarding yourself along the way for all your efforts! :)

  2. Keep the "Horrified sayings" coming. They are my favorite.
