Crappy Day

I must be PMSsing because I am just having a crappy crappy day.

Andy is still in Potty Training Boot Camp and not doing well.  He wet and dirtied in the potty first thing this morning, but so far, that's it.  He peed on the living room carpet and then on his bed.  I don't know what to do to get through to him.  I find myself wondering what is wrong with him that at FOUR YEARS OLD he just doesn't care.  And that thought makes me cry and I feel guilty and like I'm a horrible mother because we must have just missed some window and he's going to go off to college (at Northwestern, God willing) in PULL UPS!

Joey's nap was messed up today and he was all manic and crazy and whiny in a way that I just could not deal with today.  All I wanted was to sit and read stupid crap online and watch him play but that was not in the cards.  HE went down for a second nap at 5 and he's still asleep, which means he'll be up at 4 this morning.

Wayne's allergies have given him a sinus headache and a case of the weirdness.  He's in bed now too,.

So right now it's me and Andy.  He took a bath and is in a diaper and jammies for an early bed time.  I think he also has allergies because his eyes are all puffy and swollen.

I want to curl up with a margarita and some nachos-- of course we have neither chips nor tequila in the house so my craving will go unsatisfied. I may call and order myself a pizza and an antipasto salad and chow down heartily.  If I eat pizza and a salad, they cancel each other out calorie -ciwise, right?

This post is rambly and whiny and I just don't care.

I'm up and feeling much better after a little darkness and quiet. Damn allergies.

i wish i had some brilliant potty training advice. what if you just tell him there are no more diapers, and that he is too big to fit into them (and if he insists that he is not, get a too-small one to "prove" it)? would that possibly work? might a couple of days of accidents help him figure out that its not really fun peeing on things? im not trying to be annoying, just trying to think of anything that might possibly help.

Hey, Juli, I got this anonymous post on my journal. They said it was for you but they didn't have an LJ account.

"With my one son, I used the Toilet Training in Less Than A Day method. Basically, you ask the child "What do you need to do if you need to go potty." The child is then suppose to do what he would do if he really had to go. Run to the bathroom, pull down pants (or what boys do), pretend to go...you got it everything you would do. Then you go to another spot in the house and do it again. You were suppose to do it 10x's in a row many times a day. Each time from a different spot since you never know where you'll be when you feel the urge to go. Make it like a game. Good Luck"
