I Have to Admit, It's Getting Better...

It's getting better, every day. Remember when the very first flat panel TV came out and Phillips had those great commercials with those songs? I always wanted to find a career where I could watch commercials. I don't want to be in advertising, because I can't actually think of the great ideas...don't they have a job where you can watch them and tell them if you like it? Just wondering.

Anyway, it really is getting better and better. Warren still gets up once or twice a night, but I just pop that boppy back in and head back to my room. He's been consistently napping in the mornings for two hours (Friday he took a THREE HOUR am nap, and a two hour afternooner!) and we can usually get another hour out of him in the early afternoons, and sometimes another one right around dinner time. Don't worry, the Lord is making sure that I don't get too prideful. He's been super super fussy lately, sometimes crying literally, for an hour at a time. We're stuck in the recliner holding him, but the big kids seem to understand. My neighbor is going to loan me her Ergo baby carrier, I might invest in one if he keeps this up. I still LOVE my Moby wrap, but he sort of wiggles out of it now...

This Thursday I start my new Beth Moore study! Hooray! I was on the fence about our new church, until they announced one morning that we were gonna do this! Hooray! Did I already say that? We'll be doing Believing God, and to say that I'm excited would be a complete understatement.

I'm also socializing just a tiny bit more. My neighbor is great, and I'm meeting a lot of other women through her. I've got a Pampered Chef party this Friday that I'm going to, and another Girl's Night next Wednesday, at a paint your own pottery place. Not very artistic, but I'm still gonna go, just to talk to other adults, you know? I'll just get a small bowl and paint it all one color (light brown) and then see if my little sister can fix it later.

Scott is maybe eighty percent potty trained. Nick and I finally decided to just do it, so we did. We started letting him run naked a few days ago, for a few hours a day, then Friday I only let him wear a diaper to school and during naps. He never has accidents, so I know that he gets it, he just doesn't really like it. And just like with Ava, he's resisting pooping on the potty. He'd rather use a diaper. NOT GONNA HAPPEN BUDDY. He did poop yesterday, and he almost did today. We'll see how that goes. Let me tell you. Roughly thirty four cents per diaper, about six to eight diapers a day PER CHILD, for the last FOUR YEARS...I'm tired of buying diapers ya'll. I'm just sick of it. So. Again, two steps forward, one step back, but hey, I'll totally take it! Looking better every day ya'll...
