Ahhh! You guys, I might start keeping my cousin's baby in a few weeks when his wife goes back to work. It would only be 2-4 days a week, but... 12 week old baby in my house OMGOMGOMG! The squishiness!

My neighbor left this morning to drive his son (and only child) off to college, and he is just heartbroken. This guy was a stay a home dad for many years, and his kid is clearly the center of his universe. They run errands and do yard work together, and I always see them playing basketball after dinner. They're really, really close. As he was loading up the car, the dad said to me "it went by so fast," and almost started crying. So then I went inside and read Walter his Thomas the Train book for the billionth time. *sniffle*

Today is our first day with no accidents! Everytime L has needed to go, she has asked to go to the toilet. Its way to STFU Parents to share anywhere else, but MAN THIS IS FREAKING AWESOME!

Elliot has made up his own word for nursing. We usually say milkies or boobies. He has started saying nyah nyah. No idea where it came from or if he is trying to say an actual word. He is pretty behind with talking.

Henry says "nope" for milk, which is pretty confusing. Soymilk sounds like "nanope".

The one about "what a luxury" it is really hit home with me. People have said that to me so many times and it drives me nuts. We make tons of sacrifices to have me home with each kid until they reach school age, it isn't some magical luxury that happened to me.

Sorry you're having a rough day, Lisapunk.

yeah the "you must be loaded" one i feel alot.
all i could think about all morning while trying to wrangle the Punklet is my best friend who had a baby a month before me and went back to work and repeatedly tells me how lucky i am and how she would give anything to stay home etc etc.
i totally feel extremely fortunate we are able to swing this at least for the moment but it's a huge sacrifice and it's not easy living on one paycheck. and my day isnt all smiles and snuggles and happy baby times.
we cut out alot of stuff out of our lives to be able to do this.

also she has a job she loves and worked very hard to get to where she is and i would give anything to have that or to know what the hell i want to do with my life. so i think all moms work hard, we all have our own shiitake to deal with. none of us are sitting at home eating bonbons getting a foot massage (ok maybe the celeb moms)

I really liked the article, and the best line for me was "The Mommy Wars are Over." There are no clear lines between women who work outside the home and women who stay at home. Most women have been in the work place at some point, and as 85% of mothers in this country work outside the home, even many of us who are at home now will be working outside the home at some point.

Where parenting is concerned, we are all independent adults, who can make our own choices, and I assume that everyone is doing the best they can for their children and families. I know that I don't know enough to be able to pass judgement on them and there are so many better things I could do with my time than tear another person down. I really like the quote that "Be kind for everyone you know is fighting a hard battle."

And, on a completely unrelated note, after 2 days with no accidents, Leela pooped on the floor. And the dog ate it before I could clean it up. And this is how I felt on the inside.

I am pretty sure I can never kiss my dog again.

that's exactly why my beagle grosses me out when he licks me. he's such a poop scrounger. he would totally eat human poop if he had the chance.

is it sad that tofu's post about the poop clean up makes me wish we had gotten a dog before we potty trained? not that we are "trained", my four year old refuses to poop in the potty, he requests and uses a diaper a day. whatever, i figure no one ever graduated college voluntarily pooping in a diaper. Setting my standards low.

Haha jildez! FWIW, I taught 4-6 year olds for a long while and we fairly often had kids coming into the class with poop issues (only going at home, needing a nappy, going in pants, etc.)

F's completely intrigued by the potty but no action yet.

Leela is back to using the toilet properly! This morning she got up, walked to the toilet (with the baby seat and step) and got on it and peed like it was no big deal. Its kind of amazing.

Before we go anywhere, she always asks to use the potty now, which blows my mind too. We keep a potty in the car, but for the most part she is even really good at using public toilets.

I still can't even think of kissing my dog without feeling gross.

Miles's word for train was "Nyah nyah". It made no sense! :) He was behind in talking because of fluid that wouldn't drain in his ears. He's had the tubes in his ears for less then a month and now says choo choo train very clearly. He also called Reno "mimi" and now says "reno". If you haven't already I would get E's ears checked out. Its a very easy fix if that's what is causing a delay.
