After 2 weeks of pretty much potty training perfection, I was calling Lily the easiest kid to potty-train in history.
Today, however, she has made up her mind to go to the bathroom ANYWHERE but in the bathroom.
Running total for today: So far... she's gone in her bedroom, in my mom's new classroom, on the living room rug, in Jeff's office, and on the living room floor lamp... and unfortunately they weren't all numero uno.
We are officially out of undies until this load of laundry finishes. I was informed by a parent of a similar child that there might be a battle of wills to see who would give up first. Therefore… I WILL NOT put her back in a diaper. We’re on a reward system again. Once Lily fills this chart… she gets to make cookies with me. She’s already confused by this and the reward system for sleeping in her bed (not rolling into ours at 2 am).
Yesterday, I decided to try to stop drinking cokes since our supply had run out.
Today, I had a true addict moment.
After the 3rd potty accident in 30 minutes, I yelled, "Get your shoes on pee-pants, Mama needs a COKE."
While driving to Sonic, I observed that the drive through liquor store is much more conveniently located right at the entrance of our neighborhood (...classy, I know!)
… but I digress.
In other matters...
I've had so much fun with not one, but 2 visits from old friends in the same week. Laura and Kelli, my roommates at UT and BFFs, came to stay in Casa de Olson both at separate times Tuesday through Sun
day. It was so much fun to reminisce and catch up in person.
Laura took 2 year pictures of Lily while here... can't wait to see how they turned out.
…Especially since our NEW camera is in a cardboard coffin bound for the Nikon warehouse. Someone, who shall remain nameless, dropped it in the garage while taking a photo of his Bowflex to place on Craigslist. It stopped working just as the first bid on ebay was placed on our old Olympus. I start twitching and sweating when I think about having no camera… correction… no DSLR camera… for who knows how long and through who knows how many important events in my daughter’s life.
How will we survive without slightly blurred photos of MAJOR happenings…
Like watching deer in our backyard…
… or painting with Lukie B.
Hurry home little Nikon. Hurry home.
