Friday Night Leftovers

  • More times than not I look forward to the weekend because Cody is home to help or completely handle the morning madness.  This weekend is not really a weekend. 
  • Cody has to work tomorrow, is off Sunday,  and Monday he will be acting as the color guard for a memorial service on post.  So the morning madness will continue to be me and only me.  
  • Eligh picked out new big boy underwear and matching stickers this week to begin potty training shortly.  Any guesses on what he chose?  
  • As much as I want the diaper days to be long gone, I am NOT looking forward to training Eligh.  He takes a lot longer than the girls to really "get" things.  For example, he CANNOT spit toothpaste out, no matter how hard I try to keep his mouth open to stop him from gulping down the paste.  He will have to go back to the baby toothpaste for a tad longer.  Yep, this is going to suck.  
  • We have some interesting sleeping arrangements this week.  Two nap days turned into Eligh sleeping in our bed, Kinsley sleeping in Eligh's bed, and Addy staying in her bed.  PIA.  
  • On one of Addy's many trips to the bathroom before finally falling asleep she said the following, "Mommy, just relax.  I am ONLY going potty.  Ok?"  Woah...who runs this house?  Not me. 
  • I really want/NEED to have a yard sale, but don't know if my neighborhood is conducive to this.  If I put up enough signs, people would find it, I think.  What do you think?
  • We are supposed to go see a free showing of "Hop" tonight, but these kids may change my mind.  
Got some randomness you need to get rid of?  Click on over to Danifred and enjoy. 


  1. Stopping by from FNL - I am in the same boat with needing to have a yard sale, and I know they would find the house, but man... it's a lot of work!

  2. Here from FNL - I've thought about a yard sale but decided it wasn't worth it. I'll just take it to Goodwill and take teh tax write off.

    The kids run the asylum around here too.

  3. i alos need a yard sale have a great time at the movies

  4. Good luck to Eligh (and Mommy) with the potty training!

    I was gonna hve a yard sale too but decided it probably wasn't worth it so I donated or threw stuff away.

    Argh! Getting so annoyed with blogger lately...I can't seem to post my darn info when I am commdenting!

  5. Good luck with potty training... I'm currently attempting with my 2 year old daughter but she's stubborn and doesn't want to, so I feel your pain.

  6. We decided during our last yard sale that we would never do it again. These days we donate to the Purple Heart. I love bagging stuff up and having it picked up to never return :)

  7. I'll admit it...I caved and did NOTHING about potty training this weekend (as I promised myself that I would). At least you got underwear and stickers.

    I'm pretty sure I'm losing my grip on running my house too :(
