Life is Grand!!!

That's Life

Okay, my job just got twice as hard. Since the oldest red head is now in big boy underwear, I have to make sure to take him to the potty every 45 min. And even then he is not guaranteed to be dry (since he just peed his pants). So I have to check him all the time!

I knew this time would come eventually, and I guess it's better than changing diapers...but it's still a pain! And then again, this is what I signed up for since I'm his care giver (during the hours of 7:15-5:30). So I guess I have no room to complain, do I?

Oh well, this too shall pass...life is grand that way!

I came over from Wendy's site--a bit out of sequence, but wanted to see what Trinity was all about.

And I see you're from Columbus. Me too. Toilet training? Been there done that.

I get Sulu to change mine. He seems to love it.

I'm too busy with important Captaining issues.

Don't think you were complaining. You were only airing out. I admire you for the hard work you have in taking care of that boy. I know you are a God loving person. Depend on it, God's work done in God's way will never lack God's supplies.

I don't understand how that could POSSIBLY be better than diapers.

hopefully, he'll get the hang of it in a few weeks and then you'll see how worth it all those trips to the bathroom are.

Ugh, toilet training. Going through that with my 3 year old right now. I don't think I could deal with someone else's kid! Good luck!

Hey, I am going to offer advice, again. LOL! If the redhead is still wet even with 45 minute potty trips, take him every 15 to 20 minutes. I know it creates more work, but maybe you did this consistently for a couple of days he will start recognizing he needs to go. Also, he will start to like feeling dry.

My first one did what the redhead is doing and that is what I did for him. Ben ended up being potty trained within a couple of days.

Okay, so I thought you were a new comer to my blog with the new name of Trin and the new receipe blog (which I am dying to see...like how the movies go along with the blog name...fried green tomatoes, charlie and the chocolate factory! Ha!) Anyway, I see it is my old friend Trinity13! Oh, that quote..."This too shall pass" is one of my favorites! Have you ever heard of the Christian Comedian, Mark Lowry? He has a hilarious skit about that quote.

I understand about the underwear...Evan is potty trained except for overnight he still needs diapers for. But he does naps with underwear and rarely has an accident. At least I have no worries about Keegan! It did pass for him and Evan will pass out of it soon too. Can I hear an Amen?

I really admire what you are doing. I see a lot of handicapped children where I work so I know how you feel. While taking care of him, just think of your normal and healthy child and be thankful to God.
