Potty Training and Pull Ups

It's Shaping up to be a crappy day.

Timmy has had 3 pee-pee accidents and it's not even 10:00am. The last one was a doozie; it was the kind that runs down the legs, gets the socks wet and leaves a puddle on the floor - which led to him walking to the bathroom in his wet socks on my hardwood floor. He took off his undies and pants, then I instructed him to go get new underwear upstairs. He didn't take his socks off, so the wet trail went all the way upstairs.

I was on my hands and knees cleaning the floor, when I got to the bathroom I found the pile of clothes. I took a break from cleaning the floor to take the clothes to the laundry. There was a load ready for the dryer, so I decided to throw that in. I opened the washing machine to switch it over to discover I washed a pull-up! Have you ever done this? All the gel that absorbs the pee was on every inch of every item of clothing in the wash...ARGHHHHH!!!!

What the F am I supposed to do with that?

Before I can figure that out, I need to clean each stair on the stair case and the hall leading to his room.

Anyone want to trade lives with me for the morning?

Oh no! I am so sorry you've had a bad potty day. We are working on potty training right now. I am calling this week, Potty Training Bootcamp. We have had one accident and one success today. I hope your day gets better!

I hate potty training. I feel your potty pain - it totally sucks and I wish it were over and done with.

Oy. I'm not looking forward to potty training again, but it's coming. My mom just told me yesterday that my niece potty trained herself. Can you believe that? Well, actually it's not that surprising.. The kid has kind of had to do everything herself since she was born because my brother and her mother are both idiots.

Yet 15 years from now you can tell his girlfriend that story...to pay him back for you scrubbing the floor. :) Bry-onicle wasn't fully potty trained until he was 3 1/2 and then it was only because Fatty McChuckles got him to pee on trees. Monkey Butt was WAY easier. He came up to me at 18 months old naked as the day he was born and just said, "NO MORE DIAPERS! BIG BOY PEE TOILET!" I'm sure you are fluent in toddler and understand the last sentence.

You have to admit - a pee trail is way better than a trail of crumbs...at least birds can't take off with his trail. ;)

Why and how can you call yourself a Christian and put Christ's name on yours...yet swear and use the f word in your blog entry for the world to read. God is not pleased when his children talk like that. Something to think about...

Found it...

How can you do that- hmm, let me guess, because you are human and as a human you are not perfect nor are you expected ever to be perfect. What it all comes down to is your faith and God's judgement in the end - what this chick says makes no difference.

Frankly, if she were to say she never used a naughty word then I would say she is a liar...even thr word "brocolli" can be hideous if used in the right context - words are words and cultural objections are what makes them bad. You do not curse God, you do not use His name as a swear word - you expressed yourself and you are as faithful as ever - how can you use the letter F - yeah, you used the letter F, big deal - how can you do it, because you are human....

"Christian's" with such pious attitudes are the reason so many people despise our faith. Having faith and living it is one thing - saying "Why and how can you call yourself a Christian" is another - remove that plank from your own eye sister...I seriously doubt your mouth has been clean since birth.
