Tuesday's little adventures...

The day started with me in the bathroom getting ready for my 6 mos. checkup appt. post weight loss surgery. Luke was in the bathtub while I was drying my hair, applying makeup, etc....I noticed he was straining so I said, "Do you need to goo poo poo in the potty"? He said, "No poo poo Mommy". Not 1 minute later I got a nice little surprise in the tub. I spoke too soon as I had just told our friends the night before in a conversation about kids that Luke NEVER has pooped in the tub. Well, guess I have to eat those words...

While at Nana's Luke caught a little frog in her backyard. It was so funny he kept chasing it around saying, "Come ear frog" "come ear"....When he picked it up it jumped out of his hand. Nana and I said, let's go wash our hands now frogs are icky dirty. This morning he came in my room and woke me up telling me, "frogs are icky". At least he's got a better memory than his daddy!

Then...last night Jason was sitting on the couch with him and was reading an object picture book. Daddy kept saying, "what is that"? and Luke would tell him what the object was...airplane, apple, giraffe, car, blah..blah..blah. Then they got to a picture of a wooden spoon and Jason burst into laughter. I said, "What did he just say?" Jason said, "Mr. No No". That's the name of the wooden spoon that he get's his spankings with when he's a bad boy. It was so funny. He didn't identify it as a wooden spoon, but rather Mr. No No.

No telling what adventures today will bring us. We already had the "no mommy no poo poo" followed by a nice shoo-eee diaper. It's time to start potty training. Maybe I should go get the little potty at WalMart. I hope he learns quick, I'm not looking forward to this.

In other appt. went well. The Dr. said I look great and am losing weight on track. They said I will probably lose another 20-30 lbs. in the next 6 mos. and then taper off. I'm honestly fine with what I look like now at a size 14 ,but I guess if my body is still wanting to lose more weight that's a bonus. I'll let it.

That's it from Rice-a-roni-ville today.

I think you look great! It was great to see you last week (even under sad circumstances). I'm glad your appointment went well. If you ever need any potty training advice, let me know! :-)

Hay Heather, at least he did not try to go behind the couch. When I was potty training my little one, I bought him a potty book. We would only read it in the bathroom when he would sit on the potty. It helped. J-

Heather, get Luke the DVD called ELMO'S POTTY TIME! Our little granddaughter, Maddie, is almost exactly Luke's age and is now completely potty trained, thanks to Elmo!
Congrats on the weight loss. You are looking GREAT!
