Microblog Monday: Our Crappy Morning
So many of my posts these past few months have been about my potty training woes. Well, as a stay-at-home-mom, that seems to be what my life is revolving around these days.
We are entering week 3 of potty training with Ayden. He has been doing very good when naked and goes in on his own almost every time to pee. Poop has been a work in progress, but yesterday he actually did go in all on his own, unprompted, and pooped. Hip hip hooray!
So this morning I relaxed my guard. I went into our master bathroom to take care of my own business. Of course Rylee and Ayden both had to follow. On his way in, Ayden said "sorry Mommy," which I assumed meant he peed a little on the carpet. Sigh. When I asked him if he peed, he said yes. I told him to hurry to the other bathroom and finish.
When I walked out of the bathroom, I discovered that he had actually pooped. It looked like one of them had stepped on it. Bigger sigh. When I got to the living room, I found Ayden covered elbow to toe in poop, and it was all over one of his blankets. I got Ayden to the bathroom and instructed Rylee to stay out of the poop. Thank God she listened. I got him cleaned up the best I could, then got them both into the bathtub. I can't give one a bath without the other. Then I mopped up both the bathroom floor and the entire living room, because don't forget, he had stepped in it...
Once they were out of the bathtub, I turned on Mickey Mouse Clubhouse for them, so they would be occupied enough for me to scrub out the blanket and throw it in the wash, and then scrub my bedroom carpet.
It was literally a crappy way to start a Monday morning.
