It's going to be one of those days
Potty training has officially begun in our household. We are VERY relaxed about this process, but Shaya is interested, so we encourage that. She has gone potty 2 times this morning, all of her own free will. Someone else has had to go, and she decided she wanted to also. Well, I did ask her if she wanted to first thing this morning, but that's beside the point. I'm generally of the opinion when it comes to potty training, that there's no point in even trying it until the kid in question understands that they need to go. Otherwise, you're only training yourself to watch them closely for signs, or training yourself to take them every 30 minutes or so. I'm WAY too lazy to take my child to the potty every 30 minutes. If she needs to go, she can go, or tell me, and I'll be happy to sit on the bucket next to her and say "OH, GOOD JOB SHAYA!" I'll ask her if she needs to go when she wakes up in the morning, and after her nap, as well as before nap and before bed, but that's about the extent of my scheduled potty stops. I suppose this Laze Fair philosophy is the reason why my 4 1/2 yr old still wears pull ups at night.
Wow, well, it's Saturday morning and you all have gotten to read about boogers and potty training... if you didn't know I was a stay at home mom, you probably do now...lol Let's move into the realm of adult topics now... My new house! Well, it's not mine yet, and it's not even built, or really picked out, but it's coming along. We are preaproved for a construction loan for more than we intend to spend, and our building company is referring a general contractor for us. We should be speaking with him in the next couple of days. The building company is also going to look and see if there are any investors interested in buying our condo in a quick sale so that our selling/building project goes smoothly. Once our contractor gives us some firm bids on our ground work, we can decide finally on a floor plan, and a home to build! At the moment, this is the home that I am leaning towards (click on image to enlarge):
It's amazing. I turned on cartoons, and sat down to write on my blog and I am feeling better now. I think I'm going to go take a shower. That'll make me feel even better :D
