But surprise, surprise, I lost weight. So weird. But awesome. This means that since I started 'trying' to lose the baby weight, I've lost 9lbs. Yep. Only 9lbs. But I've also lost a total of 5.5", mainly in my waist and hips (as expected). I'm down 19 pounds total from the day I had Lucy, and it also means I have 12lbs to go until my pre-Lucy weight.
Halloween...what? I'm skipping to Christmas. Sometimes when life is so dang busy and overwhelming you just have to put all your stupid (read: important) "to-do list" stuff aside and just do something totally brainless. Like, make a Christmas craft. On Sunday afternoon I did just that. (and can't share it yet...since it's part of a special blog contribution...but I want to! it's so cute!)
So, yep, I've made a christmas craft when neither of my kids have a costume nor have I even thought about it yet. And, YES I've noticed that all the stores are completely picked over by now. Because they're basically sold out of everything the same day Pumpkin Spice Latte's come out, let's be honest. Peeps go crazy over that Fall stuff.
My kid is totally annoyed with me. She does not want nor need me to ask her 9038240932 times a day to "tell mommy when you need to go potty", because she's proven me time and time again that she will tell me WHEN she needs to go. Or better yet, just go in there and do it herself (miss independent say what?) But yet I still ask. And now? When I ask her to let me know when she needs to go, she tells me "No. No I don't tell you". Because she's that annoyed with me. So, basically I need to stop asking her.
Also. She is successful 100% of the time when she has no panties on. Put the panties on? And dribble. dribble. dribble.
I may have bought 17 new pairs of panties last night, and I *might* not be exaggerating, AT ALL. Usually she can catch it and finish the rest on the potty, but stillllll. (Yes I'm talking about pee on my blog, get over it). Or I just have to watch her like a hawk, and that's kind of hard with Lucy, too. What the heck do I do? I mean, it's not socially acceptable to go nude from the waist down--and, umm...preschool. So. HELP! I've read this is common and everything basically has said just.stick.with.it. But I need a success story. STAT. Someone give me a success story, for the love.
Happy Tuesday (how is it only Tuesday???)!
