Good morning.  Leaving in a bit to have brunch with my mom and to drop off alot of stuff from the house that we don't want that she does.  Then Zeph and I are having our hair cut ( mine colored too).  He went from a buzz cut to long and shaggy so I hope my stylist can do something with it to make it more presentable, but still 'cool'. 

Lots of last minute vacation stuff- bank, post office, packing, giving the kitchen a good clean so if the micey come calling, they won't find anything, pet sitter stuff out, etc.  DH comes home tonight-finally.  This was a hrd trip on me.  Too much to do on my own.

Long morning already, DH came in around 4 a.m., Madison woke up aftering peeing in the bed again, I am really rethinking this whole night training thing...  Jordyn got Emma up and around for school today since DH worked most of the night, and then she had an NHS meeting at 8:10 before school.  She has work tonight and then practice.  I have a few errands to run at lunch and a meeting at 2:00.  Nothing planned tonight other than some more laundry and some paperwork for DH. 

We are having Zucchini & Chicken Sausage pie tonight for dinner.

Zeph was day trained at 18 months (peeing/pooping, dressing/undressing) but not night trained until almost 5. He slept soundly an dthe feeling just dind;t wake him. I went the pull up route until he noticed he was waking up dry consistently at night. It frustrated me to no end, but he just wasn't ready for nights.

So sorry you had a rough night Tracy. Megan wore pull-ups and Goodnights until she was 9. We even had medication from the dr. sleepovers and overnight camp. I just decided I didn't want to deal with all the laundry and interrupted nights. The subject never even comes up now.

Taking it easy today. I'll work on my parent's photo books and straighten up around the house but that's about it. Kids have swim practice tonight and dinner will probably be something chicken. Oh, I do have a few phone calls to make too.

Madison has been potty trained for almost a year now and she hasn't been 3 long, and I was really in no rush to night train her at all. But she was waking up dry at least 50% of the time, and I only originally started doing it because I had ran out of diapers and it was the end of the month, money was tight and I figured we could manage to hold off buying more. LOL! The first week it was about 50/50, and she wasn't waking up at all even if she did pee in the bed, and just about the time I went to buy another bag of diapers she went 3 straight nights dry and one night actually got up in the middle to go. Since then its been about ever 3rd night she has an accident, if DH gets home late into the night, he will actually wake her up and take her to the potty to get her into the habit. I just dont know if its worth the extra effort for me right now being woke up at 4 a.m. every time, which seems to be when she figures out she's wet, have to strip her bed down, do laundry, etc.

Emma didn't potty train until 3 1/1, she was stubborn about it, but when she trained, it was within 2 or 3 days and no accidents. She decided about a week later she wanted to night train, again I wasn't in a hurry, but she wanted to, and I think she only had 2 or 3 accidents that first 3 weeks and hasn't had any since. I need to get a back up pair of sheets for her bed this weekend at least.

Hi everyone, hope you're all having a good Wednesday.  It's a gorgeous day here, all week has been beautiful.

It was a good work day for me. Our most difficult student had a really great day.  I've been being good and exercising twice a day, yay me. 

Kayleigh had a regular school day, then went to a drama club meeting (she hasn't belonged to drama club since sometime freshman year) and now she's out riding her bike.  Ian had a regular school day too, and has no plans for tonight other than cooking us dinner (quesadillas).

Dh is meeting a friend for dinner, so it'll just be the teens and me.  I hope to get a few things done, read, catch up on tivo'd shows and have a couple of college related things to go over with Kayleigh

It was a good day.  I haven't been feeling too hot for a couple of days.  I slept most of the day.  Skipped lunch and took books back to the library and picked up a soda.  Came home and put a call into Natalie's PT.  At practice she had some pain but it was quick and didn't last but just a few minutes and was fine after about 10 minutes.  So we chatted about that and what it might have meant.  She is fine and we see her Doctor tomorrow.  Picked Katie up from school cause she isn't comfortable on the bus.  Matthew stayed for Robotics meeting and I picked him up just before 4pm.   I did finally get to cook the kids their back to school cake.  

Making a roast chicken in the crock pot with new potatoes pan roasted.  Of course cake later.
