Potty-Training Miss Baby

So Miss Baby turned 2 in January.  Right afterwards I started to work a little on potty training her, but then Spiderman came to live with us and was 3.5 but still in diapers, so I had 3 kids in diapers and I just didn't care at that point.  At the beginning of June Spiderman when to live with his mom, and so I decided I needed to work harder potty training Miss Baby.

Although she is doing really well, we have had a few mishaps.  Like when my Michael, my mom, and I were sitting watching TV while Miss Baby played with blocks on the floor and I noticed it smelled bad.  I figured Little Guy (who is NOT potty training, but has had a number of mishaps of his own *shudder*) had pooped and I would change it after the show.  Then Michael was like "Um, guys, she is covered in poop."  Which she was.

Some how, Miss Baby had neglected to notice that she was cover in poop, and went right on playing.  She was NOT pleased to be stuck in the empty bath and have poop cleaned off of most of her body (even squished in her belly button).  She was also pretty sad that night when she couldn't have Baa (her lamb) sleep with her, cause she had got poop on that too.  The next time she pooped in her underpants again, but this time I caught it before it was a disaster.  Finally today she was upstairs playing in her room and I went to check on her and the room smelled bad.  I was pretty worried, but I looked in her potty (yes, she has a potty in her room.  She likes to try to do stuff herself in the bathroom and makes messes, so I just put a potty in her room so she can play without a problem.) and she had gone all by herself!

We have had some wins too.  She wakes up from nap dry everyday, and went all afternoon without going in her diaper while we were shopping.  Plus after the poop fiasco it really sped up the time it took to get Michael to pick up my carpet shampooer.

If you are easily grossed out, or hearing personal stories will make it so you can no longer look me in the eye when we are talking please STOP READING NOW!  The next story is horribly gross and embarrassing, but also terribly funny.

Last night we went to dinner with my family.  Miss Baby and Little Guy had been super good, but they had been sitting at dinner for a good 2 hours, after sitting in church for an hour or so.  When I got up to use the bathroom, Miss Baby wanted to come with me, and I figured that she should be able to get up and stretch her legs a little so I took her with me.

It is currently my "time of the month" (a major misnomer in my case, as it comes much less than once a month and seems to stay as long as it feels like), and I was wearing a pad.  Of course since Miss Baby is potty training she is quite curious as to what goes on in the bathroom and was staring at me as I went pee (awkward!).  Then she noticed my pad.  And proceeded to call it "Mama's diaper?" and then said "You pooped!"  I was like, "No, I didn't.".  Then she said one of her most coherent sentences to date: "You pooped in your diaper!" in a tone of voice that was equal parts shock and amusement.  Now she thinks I am a incontinent liar, all because I was trying to be nice and let her walk around.

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs

- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…

Is Mother Goose Time Worth The Money?

Last night my husband asked me if I thought that Mother Goose Time was worth the money if I didn't get it for free.  I think this is an excellent question, and one that people probably want to know.

How Much Does It Cost?:
Mother Goose Time costs $75 a month for one child, including shipping if you buy it month to month.  If you can order and pre-pay ahead of time, you can save up to 15%, depending on how far ahead you pre-pay.  If you have more than one child using the curriculum it is only about $5 a month to add a child.  Many of the products provided cover the entire class, including manipulatives and story books.  The things that each child needs come packaged in their own bag for each child.

What I Think of the Curriculum:
The curriculum is great.  It is thorough and engaging.  It provides me with ideas and supplies to teach my son things I never would have thought to teach him, but will make him a very well rounded person.  He now talks about things he never would have talked…
