This and That

I've sat down numerous times the past fews days ready to blog about something cute and then would get interrupted (imagine that!) so I gave up. So here I sit ready to give it a shot. I'll make it short and sweet.
*****************
Saw the best bumper sticker today....."If ignorance is bliss, why aren't more people happy?" Loved it. Too many stupid people in the world and a heck of a lot of bitchy ones. It doesn't make sense.
*****************
Aiden became obsessed with the toilet. He now has his little potty in the bathroom. I have no high hopes of him potty training at 23 months, but miracles happen. He's happy as a clam to sit on it. And since he now likes to strip all of his clothes off, including his diaper, it's good he has a place to park that bottom.
*****************
Noah had his first full day of school yesterday which means his first day of eating lunch at school. He was a bit nervous about it. I had to make a lunch that required no refrigeration since he wanted to bring his metal Diego lunchbox and Todd had taken the ice pack with his lunch. So I packed a PB&J sandwhich, a banana, and a baggie of dried berries. The poor kid thought I gave him strawberries that rotted and shriveled up to look like raisins so he threw them away. I showed him the big bag of dried fruit and explained that's what I gave him. He must have thought I was poisoning him on his first day of cold lunch. He gave hot lunch a try today.
*****************
Things I am thankful for today:
Air conditioning and the brownies that Todd made for us. Sometimes you just need chocolate......really BAD!!

Wouldn't it be wonderful if Aiden really WAS ready to potty train and he just took care of it all on his own?????? I think I am living in the world with the "ignorance is bliss" people! Good luck...maybe it will happen sooner than later

If you have any tricks let me know. Mallory sat on the potty for about five minutes the other day-we counted toes, read books, and sang songs...nothing. She said "no tee tee" so I took her off and she peed on the bathmat.

I saw on tv that there is a potty training service in Hollywierd...I'll look into it for us.
