The Stench of Dirty Diapers!!!

Never gets me moving, sad, but true. A naked baby with the look of fear and concentration, that will get me running!!! I'm talking about potty training for you out there who would like to help and chime in...

I think when I child is ready for potty training there a certain tell-tell signs.
*The kid hides when they poop in their diaper.
*They tell you when they go potty in their pants &/or in freaks them out after they do their number.

I'm easy going about potty training. I don't push the child. Maren's 2 years old and we have started the process of potty training. We go potty if she asks or if I see her working her magic. I reward her and praise her and make a big ordeal. My favorite technique is let walk around the house naked, you and they will learn real quick when they need to go the the bathroom.

Some of you are doing this for the first time and some are doing this with a different flavor. For my first time mommy readers out there lets give them our secrets of the trade.

I love my children, I do. They are cute, look the pictures prove it! They are smart. They are funny- they have to be to survive in this family. Maybe it is the challenges of being momma that makes it hard not to leave that television on all day long and stay in my office and play on this computer. It's really a great babysitter for these children of mine right now. Don't get me wrong I do get up, I do clean the house, and I do talk to and hug the children. Is it just me??? What do you do get yourself motivated?

My new favorite...

Confessions of a Pioneer Woman. Now that I've told you, you might be doomed to several hours surfing and looking around into what she has created. Don't blame me you asked! What is so great, you ask? Not only does she archive the past articles that she has written and link them all to relatable topics, she tells them with humor. Oh, and my favorite part she has a link to another blog of hers of simple delicious meals!!!!!!

They call it "Blog Surfing"

...but I know it's because I am just plain nosy. It's almost like a mini-novel and if I'm lucky I might know somebody. One of my most favorite blogs is a woman I don't even know, but does that stop me? Nope. How often do you go through your friend's/ favorite blogs to see if they have updated? For me it's at least every time I check the email.
