Potty Training

Well I have finally done it... i bought 24 pair of underwear, pullups and 35 dollars worth of juice and treats so I am now on my second day of potty training Seth... he is already 2 1/2 and I have been putting it off for too long already. Steve is in California taking his own training course and I needed to stay home so I could stop spending money on needless things (see above!) So far it hasn't been horrible. I am sure Steve thinks he is coming home to a fully trained boy but I keep reminding him that its really just training me to watch for the tell tale signs and that he will need to be 'trained' also. I can't remember with the other boys how long you have tgo deal with the constant worry of an accident but I am in it for the long haul and when Steve gets back I am so going for a massage and a pedicure and letting him take a crazh course in Potty time!
Speaking of training, We are now the proud owners of a Play-n-trade franchise so that is why he is gone, to get the beginners course they offer, hopefully we will have it up and running in the next couple of months. Keep your fingers crossed... its a big step away from the Real Estate business.
I am also in the middle of baseball and soccer games so my evenings are a little crazy right now, tonight I have 2 ball games, and a soccer practice, tomorrow the same but with Scouts and a Primary activity added to the mix... all without Steve so needless to say I am in bed as soon as I get everybody else down. I would not want to be a single mom again. Although with the new business I will be on my own alot more. Thank goodness for my mother in law who's just down the road :)
Yeah I really shouldn't even bother with a blog, I have nothing exciting to say and just reading over it... I even bore myself! Oh well what can you do, the least amount of excitement is a wlecome thing in my life with everything that has happened over the last few years!
