Word of the Week, it rhymes with tree.

What’s the story in my world? Well, the word of the week would be pee.

Yes, I said pee. As in urine. As in pee pee. As in I’m potty training a 2 year old who is obsessed with pee, loves to pee on the potty and doesn’t seem to care if she is sitting in pee. I forgot what this was like! What a world of difference it is with a girl. She is truly interested in the potty, when my son could have care less. 

Okay, back to my week of pee and why I am writing about this stinky subject…

This peeing thing has begun to spread throughout the house. Literally! A few nights ago, my cat was shut in our media room, for goodness knows how long. Well, by the time I realized this, he had peed AND pooped on our new couch. Of all the places he could go in that room, he went on our FAVORITE seat on the couch!! Rrrrrrrrrrrrr! Why not the floor? Under the table? On the chair we never sit in? If you have never smelled cat pee, please be very thankful!! 

That same evening, my 5 year old son who has been sleeping through the night with absolutely no trouble, pees his bed! Of course the pee pad was not on the mattress and it soaked through to the bone. Rrrrrrrrrrrrr!

Okay, I’ve had it with pee!

The next morning, I remove my 2 year old’s diaper when she woke up. As I’m walking from her crib to the changing table (just 2 steps away), she is standing in her bed and “Let’s say it together”… she PEES! She did have the pee pad on, so it was not that big of deal, but I still thought. Rrrrrrrrrrrrr!

Right now I’m taking a break from, you guessed it, cleaning up pee. I accidentally put a swim diaper on my daughter instead of a pull-up. (for those of you without little ones, the swim diaper was made to hold in poop… not pee because the water just goes right through them) Guess what she did in her car seat while we drove to get ice cream? You guessed it!! This was not just a little pee, it was like someone had poured a bucket in her lap. So after the trouble of taking off the soaking pee filled car seat cover in the 108° car, cleaning up the drips on the floor from carrying it to the laundry room and washing it. I’m taking a break to write about my pee filled week.

I feel like poop and going to bed! Have a nice weekend.

We had some new friends over for a play date yesterday. I was talking with another mom during VBS and our little girls became fast friends by following each other around the church lobby, then switching shoes. A bond that only a 2 year old with a passion for shoes can understand. It was really sweet, they even held hands. I couldn’t believe it, I had to have this sweet girl over to play. 
Remember, we rarely have girls over, since most of our friends are boys. So it was a whole different can of worms when our new friend showed up. Right off the bat, LOTS of drama!! There were times of sweetness, but mostly a lot of shouting “MINE!!!!” then crying, stomping and flopping on the floor. This was happening on both girl’s part. It was hilarious. What happened to that cute girl play time in the church lobby? ha. I don’t think she knew what do with a little person who was interested in her girl toys (which is very slim in a house ruled by Batman, swords and light sabers). Also, because they both have big brothers, I think shouting MINE just becomes habit. Those pesky big brothers!!
It ended up being a fun morning and I was happy to have made a new friend myself. I just wasn’t used to all the fuss that goes on in the little girl world. I guess I got my first taste of much more drama to come! It will all be worth it someday when I get to go through this with her and her daughter. I will remind her about that dramatic, terrible two’s screech “MINE!”, assure her that it’s normal, then I’ll chuckle and go home to my nice and quiet, screech free home. 

Girls are fun!

Okay… I can’t believe my baby girl will be 2 years old soon! I splurged and bought this cute pink tutu for her birthday. Of course, she LOVES it and cries when I take it off. Her favorite thing is to wear ONLY the tutu. ha. I got creative and made her a shirt for her party. It was so easy. Now I’m addicted to these iron on rhinestones! Why haven’t I done this before? ha. I’m so happy God blessed us with this precious little girl.
