Potty Learning

Oh man, this is going to be so hard! But I know it has to happen. Boo has shown interest when we go potty. And he wants to get on the big potty. So I broke out the little potty he got at my baby shower. And he loves sitting on it. He has peed on it 3 times, which is great. But he always wants to sit on it forever. And he doesn't want to put his diaper back on. So we will have to work on that. And... he doesn't understand that his teetee has to stay in the potty, so he pees on the floor! So let's hear any potty learning advice you've got. At this point, we're just going to see how it goes and let him lead the way. I'm not sure that he will understand to ask to go to the potty and not in his pants, but 3 times since last night is pretty good. And for some reason, he doesn't pee in his diaper sometimes through the night or a nap. So we'll see.

Daddy and ice cream





I can't believe I never went back and fixed the post with these pics. Well, here there are again.

A busy weekend

Whew. This weekend is going to be way busier than normal for us. Hopefully we can make it through without stress. Today we drive one hour to Lake Charles, LA for a birthday party and to see family for the day. Tomorrow, we go to Houston (2 hours) for a funeral. Nathan's friend's mom passed away sadly from a battle with cancer. And I worked yesterday to make up for Monday, so I'm not spending much time at home like normal. But I think today will be fun, and I think it's good for Nathan to be with his friend and provide support during a hard time.

Kicked out

Chesley got kicked out of daycare today with 3 times diarrehea. I guess that is the limit for one day. So I went and got him and took him home. He seems ok to me, but now he can't go to daycare tomorrow. My dad will be off to keep him, so that works out. Nathan's truck is broken down. Hopefully it won't be too hard to fix or too expensive. Boo is crying now because Nathan went outside without him. It's rainy. Poor Boo. Come see Momma.

Poor Boo

Is sick again. He coughed all night last night, like really all night long. Barely got any rest. Today he had moments of happiness and times of coughing and throwing up. But I'll do whatever it takes for this little guy.

If you're happy

Chesley new favorite song,

"If you're happy and you know it
If you're happy and you know it
If you're happy and you know it
Then your face will surely show it.
If you're happy and you know it

We try do "clap your hands" and sometimes we do "shout HURRAY!" but his favorite is "STOMP YOUR FEET!" He starts stomping one foot as soon as you start singing and stomps the whole time.

The Princess

This is too funny not to post. Here is Nathan trying to listen to music on the computer and hold Chesley. Mya is close by at Mom and Dad's house, so princess crowns are to be found.

Seems like depression and sadness are abounding in my blogs I read and in the lives of people I care about. One of the sufferers has bravely admitted her sad dark feelings and is seeking help. One of the sufferers attempted to end his life but was rescued and is recovering. I hope and pray that anyone suffering in silence will reach out for help. I have never suffered depression, so I can't understand what it feels like. I have felt low many times in my life, but never so low to want to end my life or not be able to function. I have suffered as a family member of someone with depression and a family problem with substance abuse. So I know how that kind of pain and betrayal feels. Please don't suffer in silence. Be brave. Step out and get help.

The sweetest words

I don't know that he really knows what he is saying, but it is still sweet to hear "I love you" from your child. It sounds more like "I uh ee you ee" and it is usually followed by much hugging and kissing. It makes it all worth it.
