I have one of these pictures up as my Yahoo Messenger avatar. I’ve had a number of people ask me why Brianna is so unhappy. It’s because Josh was scolding her for spitting her food. She does not like it when he gets cross with her. I took a series of pictures to show just how pitiful she is when she pouts. I still haven’t captured the really deep unhappy face, though. The one that makes me laugh because it’s soooo pitiful. The first picture is the closest to that face, so I’m posting it even though it’s fuzzy. I’ll keep trying to get it. I’m sure I haven’t seen it for the last time 😉
Dead Man Rising is the follow-up to Working for the Devil. This is a series and it’s my opinion that they should be read in order, because without the knowledge and emotion of the first book, I don’t think the reader would get the same impact in the second. That said, let me state unequivocably: Dead Man Rising rocked my world.
Brianna got new shoes (and new clothes–I’m jealous) from my in-laws this week. One of the pairs of shoes was a pair of ruby shoes. They’re totally adorable. She likes to wear them around the house. They make nice sounds on the hardwood floors. I took some pictures.
Anyone have any?
I spent all morning yesterday running around after a 20 month old who would rip off her diaper and pee on the floor. Now, in my defense, she peed on the floor three times in an hour. Even if I was potty training, I wouldn’t have put her on the potty every fifteen minutes. Um…would I? Please say no. And when I say rip off her diaper, I mean pull ups, she would take her pull ups off. We switched to those because we thought they might be easier to keep on. Ha!
We have this potty chair for her in the bathroom. She likes to go in and sit on it. And get off. And sit. And get up. And sit. She doesn’t like to just sit on it. I despair that she’ll actually ever tinkle in this potty. Some of you might recall from a previous post that she HAS tinkled on the floor next to the potty.
And I’m happy to report that while she was at my MIL’s on Tuesday, she had a loose bowel movement during naptime, took off her diaper and spread it about. Why does this make me happy? Duh. Because it wasn’t at my house and I didn’t have to clean it up. I hear that most every child has one incident like this and I’m nearly gleeful that it wasn’t at a time when I had to deal with it.
So back to potty. Is it time to start potty training? I’ll be honest. I know potty training is hard work. I’m nearly certain I’m too lazy to successfully potty train a child. It sounds like a lot of work. But *heavy sigh* I’ll perservere and do the work. See? I’m just that kind of nice mommy. No really, do I need to start? How do I start? Can’t I just let her magically potty train herself eventually? That does happen, right?
