Parenting little kids again, Oh my! Draicoe is 3 1/2 and Daxis is almost 2. Duncan and I are their legal guardians for two months so that their mom can get stable enough to get them back.
I can hardly believe I am so tired, or am I sick? I KNOW I am insane.
This morning I felt so weary. Was my heart going to stop? Then, I realized I hadn’t eaten yet this morning. I ate something with a lot of protein that wouldn’t take very much time to eat: 3 fried eggs, 2 pieces of toast and a protein shake. Hopefully that will last me a while.
Draco is 31/2, still wearing a diaper. He is smart, so I talked to him about going potty in the toilet, he was comfortable on it, so I put big boy pants on him.
I put him on the toilet 3 or 4 times, every 30 minutes and he didn’t go once. I told him he could have candy if he went in the toilet. We made whizzing sounds, I gave him a drink of water every time he sat on the toilet. He wanted to flush, but I didn’t give him the pleasure until he had “gone.”
Well, we were in the backyard getting muddy. After taking off our shoes and I was about to sweep up the grass we had tracked in, he calls me from the hallway. Momma! Wet! I ran to him and sure enough he had gone in his pants.
What do you think? He was smart enough to tell me as soon as he had gone in his pants, right? He was sweet every time I asked him to sit on the toilet. …. But I think this is too much for me. They just got here. I AM insane. Why did I want to tackle potty training when I have so much other details to worry about? Honestly, to save money on diapers and to help him qualify for preschool.
I’ll think about it and let you know.
They are coloring on paper at the kitchen table right now…every second they are happy I am running to the computer to get this entry finished.
