When my mom was here helping out with Eden she left a few bags of her favorite tea here. It’s Constant Comment. Yumminess! And with a bit of honey, it’s even better. I bought a whole box this week which is kinda silly because I have so many boxes of tea. If you want a hot cuppa tea come to my house!
I have taken a break on the potty training front. I thought that until Eden was a little bit easier to entertain without my absolute physical attention, I would wait and just communicate with Josiah and talk to him about it. He has begun yanking his diaper off when it’s too wet for him. In fact one morning I found him in his room with no diaper on, and no dirty one to be found! I asked him, “Josiah, where’s you diaper?” He pointed to our Diaper Champ and said, “Garbage Can Mama!” I would like to kiss whoever made the Diaper Champ, because it’s easy enough for the child wearing the diaper to throw it away himself! Yesterday Josiah went potty 3 times all by himself!! He did pee on the floor an aweful lot (Praise God for hardwood floors). Twice today he decided he had to go #2 and he did it all by himself! Yesterday he came to celebrate his achievement and I was on the phone with Joel. I looked in the potty and there was nothing in it, I was kinda disappointed. I said, “Josiah there’s nothing there” He then showed me that he had already emptied it into the toilet and wanted to flush. I celebrated with great fervor!! God has answered my prayer. I was getting so tired, so sad, I had no idea what I was going to do. I had nightmares of my boy being 5 years old and not being potty trained. It’s coming along, and Josiah’s showing me how.
