Not Enough Time...

I swear - there just isn't enough time, is there? I think that I could get more accomplished if I were to awake early, but I'm not willing to sacrifice precious sleep. So what's a girl to do?

Instead of nest-feathering all week, I chose to read a good book instead! I finally started a project today, but only out of guilt and the desire to rid myself of this bulky box full of parts.

I found the coolest kids' table & chair set at Ikea a few weeks ago and the only hitch is that I have to paint it myself. NO problem, I say to myself. Three weeks later, after kicking the box around in the closet, I'm dragging myself to Home Depot for paint only to discover that because I want a red color to match my boys' room, I have to FIRST apply a gray primer to the entire thing. GRRRREAT. So this "simple" project is going to take me a lot longer than I anticipated.

So this picture shows how far I got today with a 2-year-old "helping" me. He was driving me nuts so bad that I had to pack it up for a while - hopefully returning when he's napping.

Oh, and did I mention that since I'm not busy enough, I decided to potty train the 2-year-old this week? He has no choice in the matter, really, he has to. I am not buying anymore diapers. I'm all done with diapers. He tells me every time he needs a diaper change, therefore he's smart enough to know how to do the deed in flushable fashion.

So day #2 - only 3 wet undies and 2 successful trips to the toilet! Bring on the liquids!

Sounds like my youngest..Brooke turned 3 the end of April. She too would tell me when she was "soggy". We are finally potty trained as of last month, but it was a LONG road. Good luck!
