So much suffering

Once again I find myself heartbroken about a tragedy somewhere away from where I live. I want to help - I can give money and blood - but I want to help more. I want to fix the levees. I want to carry people to high ground. I want to do things I could never do.

Here's a collection of places where we can help the people of the Gulf coast.

Tales of a potty

I have bitten the bullet regarding use of the potty in this house. There will be no more diapers. My daughter is down to between zero and two accidents a day.

I didn't want to have to force the issue but preschool starts next week and I think she'd regret missing preschool more than she'll hate the serious potty training. She's a social little girl and is very excited about school.

The frustrating thing is that TWICE I have thought she was potty trained because she went for about a week with almost no accidents, and she fell back out of it.

This time is it though.

The in-laws are visiting

My in-laws are visiting. We're having a lot of fun and going all sorts of fun places, but I am too busy to write about much here.

My next blog will be about the trials and tribulations of potty training. Why will my daughter not use the potty? She was doing so well and now she refuses. *sigh*

See you in a couple of weeks!
