Select-a-size paper towels almost made me lose my shit this morning. I usually buy the 'normal' paper towels - but grabbed these select-a-size ones. Aaron was whining about it on Sunday, and I was like dude. Get over it. It's freaking paper towels.
This morning, many things went wrong. There was multiple bodily fluids on different surfaces, none of them my own, and none of them unavoidable. But while cleaning up these messes, I kept pulling off these TINY FUCKING PIECES OF PAPER TOWEL. It's a miracle that I kept my cool, and just dealt with it... but seriously!?
Needless to say, I'm not buying those again.
I don't like talking too much about potty training much on the blog. We take a very laissez-faire attitude to potty training that has worked great so far. When the kids were ready, they told me and stopped using diapers. And it worked. We kept nighttime diapers, because neither kid ever has woken up with a dry diaper, but I just don't stress about it. But this morning has made me question my take on night time potty training. When I asked Cam why he pooped in his diaper (when he hasn't done so in YEARS) he told me, "because I was too tired to get out of bed" (and I want a gold star for not losing my shit when he said that). But, I'd love to hear what worked for you all?
Maggie has this big 'show' she puts on before she goes potty - which involves turning on the bathroom light (which she can't reach, and even in the daytime). When I'm home alone with them, I just keep the damn light on. Aaron can't stand leaving lights on, so when he is home, he'll flip off the bathroom lights off - which then results in a puddle of pee because she left it to the last minute but she was more concerned with turning on the light and moving the stool and getting the potty seat (which is all unnecessary and why I call it the 'show'). This resulted in me somewhat losing it on Aaron (JUST LEAVE THE GOD DAMN LIGHT ON).
So he decided to put in a motion light in the bathroom to appease me - and it's awesome. Maggie walks in the bathroom and says 'Momma! The light turned on!' and happily goes about her business (WIN). But we also have a big closet in that bathroom, where I store our larger pots and less used kitchen appliances. I was walking in yesterday to put away the crock pot, and the light just turns on. Love. It.
