What a Day

Yesterday was quite a day. We are back to potty training Carson. He was doing so well until Nanny passed away. We went off of our routine then. Since I have this week off from school, I thought I'd try again. Everyone has 500 ways of potty training. I finally just decided to create my own way of doing it. Carson has a little seat on the toilet (that means I don't have to empty out a little potty YAY!). He has his little step stool so he can get on the potty by himself. I decided to just go straight to underwear instead of pullups because then he can feel when he is wet. (Plus this morning I asked him which he wanted a pullup or underwear and he grabbed the underwear.) Yesterday we went through 4 pairs of underwear. Potty training has got to be one of the most frustrating things ever! Carson can sit on the potty for 15 minutes and as soon as he gets up, he goes in his underwear. It's especially frustrating because I know he knows how to go on the potty because we were doing good earlier. Anyway, the rest of the day he was in pullups. That night, he helped me make a chicken pot pie. I kept smelling it. It smelt like it was burning but it had only been in the oven for 20 minutes and it takes 50 to cook. Finally I checked it, and of course it was burnt. That is the first meal in almost three years of marriage that I have burnt. I looked at the temperature of the oven. Somehow I decided to up the temperature by 100 degrees from 375 to 475. Oh my goodness it was crazy!! I scrambled to put together another meal because Jordan was coming home in like 10 minutes. So I pulled out the trusty DiGiorno and popped it in the oven. Caron helped me make a salad to go with it (which really means he ate everything that I cut up and threw in the salad bowl). Dinner was a few minutes late so Jordan showered before eating, but it was still good. I am hoping for a better day today. So far it has been good. Carson is still wearing the pair of underwear from right after he got up so underwear count at 10:35 is 1! He's gone potty twice and done his morning poop so hooray!! We'll see how the rest of the day goes.
