Things On Thursday

Not so exciting things

  • My daughter, K1, has decided to stop being potty trained. She has enough accidents a day to say that she’s not potty trained, but she was. ???
  • It’s cold in our house every day, and every where outside that is not in the direct sun
  • I haven’t done our taxes yet
  • My dog has been limping pretty bad the past few days
  • We haven’t gone on a bike ride to the store yet this week
  • I have yet to find a part time job (not sure if that should be here or under happy thoughts)

Random things

  • I don’t have to buy a new leash for my dog. The first vet that treated her called and said that they have it. (and a $290 bill that I haven’t talked to the attacking dog owner about yet)
  • K1 thinks that all things “Princess” should include Ariel.
  • K1 likes Ariel and Fiona because they “have red hair like me” So cute. (she hasn’t met Meridia yet)
  • M&M’s are crack for kids
  • My kids napped at the same time twice this week
  • A right handed mommy and a left handed daughter make coloring together challenging. My hand is always in her way

Happy Things

  • I had my homework done on Sunday and class is not until Thursday
  • K2 gives kisses now. It is super cute, even when they are slobbery cause he’s laughing
  • K2 loves dancing. He even stomps his feet at the right time to “Happy and you know it”
  • My dog is on the mend, finally. The reaction she had to her medication is clearing up. I might actually feel comfortable sharing a photo of her.
  • Aunt K (K0, Kc … not sure which), sent a gift card our way for Christmas. We ordered the fun box of stuff you see pictured above.
  • Getting packages in the mail! We (like everyone else) love happy mail, and got two packages this week! The box above and a little love from the Grandparents. 
  • We had a great beach day with daddy on his day off. We often don’t take advantage of beautiful sunny days and free time, so it was really nice. 
  • Surprise Valentines from friendly neighbors


Not Winning

We have kinda been potty training lately. I’m not quite sure how you just kinda do something like that, but have definitely have not been hardcore about it.

DD was diaper free pretty much all morning long. She likes to tell me she needs to go potty but won’t relax to actually do it.

We put a diaper on to go to the playground and then eat lunch. When I changed her diaper before nap it was soaked. Like I didn’t know she even drank that much water soaked. This is good because all morning she did not have any messes on the floor, so she was holding it.

Then came the nap time that we changed the diaper for.

She was saying “new diaper, new diaper, new diaper”. I went upstairs. She pooped, a little. When I asked her if she had more poop she said yes. We sat on the potty for 6ish minutes. Nothing. So we cleaned up the room, put a new diaper on, and back to nap.

Then she started saying “mommy in need potty”.

I thought really kid? Didn’t we just do this?

Convinced that she just didn’t want to nap and wanted me to come back up there, I let her be.

The “I need potty”, turned to “I need a new diaper”, which turned into “mommy wipe butt”.

Finally when she sounded upset and started crying saying “mommy wipe hands” I went up there.

Naked baby. Dresser contents all over the floor. Everything from her bed on the floor. Standing on a picture with a glass frame. The glass was wet, tears or urine? not sure. And poop.


She did need to go potty.

She did need a new diaper.

She did need to be wiped. Both her butt and hands.

I am terrible.

Wrong. I was so wrong.

She was not being deceptive as I calculated.

We are getting a potty seat for the big toilet today. Maybe when I don’t have to hold her on/over the seat she will be able to relax and this won’t happen.

I told her I was sorry, and wrong, and that I love her.

Now she’s napping. On her floor, in front of the gate.

What a traumatic afternoon.

Have you had a time where you miscalculated your child’s needs? What happened?
