Is it bad that I'm currently using the shower as a means of giving myself a few minutes of "me" time? I'm not IN the shower. The kids are. It's 3 PM and we just picked up Cameron from pre-school. It's day 2 of potty-training Miles and while it's going pretty well overall I had forgotten just how messy and EXHAUSTING it is! It's even WORSE when you have a baby crawling around! You have to be ON every minute the kid is awake. If you lose your focus for even a minute all the sudden the kid who "didn't need to pee" five minutes ago has developed an overly full bladder and is relieving it in every corner of the house...while laughing. Who says a 2 year-old doesn't understand the meaning of "spite?"
So in an effort to just sit down and relax for five minutes I put the boys in the shower and here I sit checking my email and writing a blog.
Only 4.5 more hours until we start the bedtime wind-down.
Okay, but seriously, I have to add that Miles is doing REALLY well. He's kept the REALLY messy stuff in the potty and had only minor accidents on the carpet. For that I thank him.
