Once the weather started to get warm, I came up with the oh so bright idea of not turning the air conditioning on. I'm saving some serious cash (like, cut my electric bill in half) and now it's 80 inside my house. But we're halfway through the summer and it's too late to chicken out now! So we've been spending a ton of time outside, the kid in the pool and mama in her KICKASS reclining lawn chair.
(Yes, the pool is shaped like a whale. And it was well worth the 20 bucks.)
(The view from my totally kickass lawn chair.)
I LOVE my new lawn chair. It was on sale for 30 bucks (down from 75) at Tarjay. And they're so damn comfortable I feel like buying two more and putting the suckers in my living room. Screw sitting on a boring old couch, I've got RECLINING LAWN CHAIRS bitches!
In totally unrelated news, hubby and I have decided to postpone fertility treatments (at least for the immediate future). I did not make that decision willingly. Yes I'm pissed, and no I don't want to talk about it. Dammit.
For all my experienced mamas out there, I need your wisdom! I'm still struggling to potty train a kid who will be THREE in less than three weeks. SIGH. The kid is so damn tall she's wearing a 5T, but she still wants to poop in her pants. And for those of you who are unaware, toddler poop is like elephant poop- in size, smell, and quantity. Therein lies my desperation.
We went to the store and picked out Big Girl Underwear, in the much coveted Tinkerbell and Dora designs. And the wearing of the Big Girl Underwear seems to help a great deal. The kid seems very reluctant to "...mess up my faeries!" and she actually pooped in the potty today. But there has been much peeing of pants in my household lately.
But I figure that if my biggest worry lately is my kid's poop, I'm doin pretty good right?
