I have good news and well great news to share. First of all the good news...I quit coffee like a champ. Well I was more like a heroin addict comming off of a 10day bender but who cares. I still quit. Let me give you a brief list of my withdrawl symotoms. They are as follows. Migraine headache, nausea, vomiting, sweats, chills, extreme fatigue. You may think I'm just being dramatic, but ask my poor husband he will tell you. He looked at me before he left for work with a look of concern and maybe a little, has my wife completely and utterly lost her marbles? He even had the nerve to say. "Why don't you just drink a little coffee." HA I laugh in the face of the most commonly used drug in the worlds withdrawl symptoms Donny. I will not give in. I didn't give in and voila, I am no longer a caffeine addict. Charlie and Donny deserve gold stars for putting up with me this week. Now onto the Great news.
This week my 2 year old, potty trained himself. I did not prompt that child in the least bit. He just woke up one morning( 5am), and said "Mommy potty." We go in he sits on the pot, and well I'm sure you can put the rest together. However, my child perefers to linger while on the comode at 5am, and now tells me to "sit" I guess he knows that this is going to take a while so I may as well get nice and comfy on that cold tile floor. The other morning (4:30) to be exact, he spent 20 minutes pooping, I am sorry if this is too graphic but seriously why does it ever take anyone that long to do their business. With all of this said, I must tell you I am kind of sad that his last bit of "baby-ness" has gone. I now have a little boy who no longer needs his mommy to change his diapers. Sniff sniff. Ok, now that I got that out of the way I need your help. My little boy is not ashamed of his private areas in the least bit, and prefers to drop trou in the middle of restaurants, and pee. It's something that has happened twice now, and I'm not sure how to keep it from happening again. It really dosen't help that the majority of the restaurants are open air, and outside here. He prefers to pee on the beach or on trees and such. Anyone who has ever dealt with this please feel free to e-mail me or leave me a comment and let me know what on earth I can do about this. Wow, I know one teacher who is going to be happy come Monday. Miss Gaby won't know what to do, now that this will soon be a problem she too has to deal with.
Hope everyone is happy and enjoying their fall and harvest season. If you know me you know that fall is one of my favorite times of the year...Pumpkin spice candles, windows open, nice brisk evening walks, fires in the fire pit, making oven roasted squash, potatoes, zuchinni and carrots with a nice pot roast, apple crumbles, and oatmeal rasin cookies, sitting outside on a nice fall evening, and enjoying a nice glass of pinot noir, enjoying latte and going to the kirkwood farmers market, the fall lineup of network tv shows...the list goes on.
That's all for now everyone, hope you all enjoy the weekend!
