Products of Digestion (The Potty Training Chronicles)

I have found the reason for all of the road blocks on the path to being diaper free.

Its me.

I am not really ready to admit that Davis is going to be 3. That I should no longer see the bubble of butt waddling behind him. I don't want to talk about watching my youngest gain independence.

I need him to need me.

So I have shed (a very small) part of my attachment to his toddler-ness.

I am ready to admit that I now have 2 preschoolers.

Goodbye ultra absorbancy. Hello extra laundry!

We will get there. And preschool and I have set a date.

Fully potty trained by March 10.

I'll keep you posted!

11 Reasons I Hate kU

1. Even in middle and high school I recognized that the were rude, over proud, and unable to recruit for an sport requiring more than 6 athletes.

2. We have not thumped their mythical asses in Low-Rents since I was in high school.

3. They maintain a level of thuggish behavior that would be acceptable at no other institution, or in any other sport.

4. The Twins. It is hard for me to even watch them on the screen. I am overcome with a desire to strike out at them.

5. Our heart-and-soul basketball team, who strive to be good students and better people, get a fraction of the press attention that the hoodlums to the west receive.

6. Bill Self

7. Mythical bird.

8. Jayhawkers.

9. Crimson colored glasses.

10. They Exist.

11. I am a Missouri Tiger.
