Progress

Potty Training-The Eagle Has Landed. REPEAT: The Eagle Has Landed!!!! Woo hoo. After much torture, whining, begging, crying, yelling, and discomfort (and not just on the part of the trainee) we seem to be getting somewhere. I'm not saying it's all perfect yet, but we're definitely making progress. THANK GOD. There wasn't a magic moment where it all came together, but I planted the seed by telling him that he couldn't have his 4th birthday party if things didn't improve, that he'd have to stay 3 until he was out of diapers. That got his brain working and I think he's decided that mom is much more fun and happy and his life is much easier when Mommy isn't changing poopy diapers. Here's to more success.

Moving-Although we're making headway, things, as usual, are moving way too slowly for my taste. 90% of the work inside the house is done. Now it's all about getting this house organized, packed, and moved. Life is definitely getting in the way of that; there's always a lot going on and it's impossible to devote big chunks of time to that stuff when 3 kids need your care and attention. Standards must be lowered and time lines extended. That's all there is to it. Otherwise the stress will go up while the productiveness doesn't and we all know that is a recipe for my head exploding.

Btw, for what it's worth, I think your whole idea about what is going on in your life, is a good one. Nice to have a good head on your shoulders!

Good luck with the move Hon!
