Potty tales.


My little Teag is growing so fast.

He is constantly moving and talking.

Trying to grow up so fast.

Last night, I put him to bed, put Arlo to bed and left the room.

I went downstairs, and listened to him sing.

“Moooommmmmmyyy. Mommmmyyy. winniepooh. pupppppyyy.”

After a while, he started to sing about the potty

[that’s what happens when you start to potty train, it’s all about the potty and the treats (candy, not poop)]

then he started to cry.

But I was going to hold my ground.

He was going to soothe himself.

Then it was hysterics.


Still, I held off.

Then after a few minutes of the potty screams, I went upstairs.

I found him at the gate of his room (he has a gate, not a door.)

completely naked.

Holding his dry diaper and jammies in one hand,

and his bankie in his other hand.

With a puddle of pee on the floor.

Lesson learned.

From now on, when he calls,

I answer.

Even if it is the nine millionth time for the potty.


Yesterday night, it was bath night.

Teag was in the tub.

I was changing Arlo’s diaper when I saw that he had pooped.

I sat him down on Teags potty (it was clean, don’t worry)

while I waited for Rich to grab the wipes.

Rookie move, i know.

Wipes were brought, then I saw it.

He peed in the potty.

Teag did a happy dance.

We dance after a child goes pee in the potty.

 It was crazy.


My babies are growing up so fast.

I feel amazing.

1) I went to get my pump (from our bedroom) and this is what I found when I got back. He was saying “cheese” for me.

2) Ari is trying to roll over, hence the blurry picture.

3) I am so glad movember is over. He had a beard for a few month, and then shaved it off like this. joyous.

4. Teag didn’t know what to do with himself when he was given a sucker at a local restaurant.
