Apologies for no posts earlier this week. Monday was my wedding anniversary (7 years!). B spent the night at my in-laws. My husband and I went out to dinner, watched some TV together at home, and enjoyed a night of not having the kid. Tuesday we slept in, walked around the mall, and grabbed some fast food before picking up B. It was very nice.


Potty training has been a success! Last week we had a breakthrough when B actually held his pee and rushed to the bathroom. Still having occasional accidents, and have to make sure he doesn't hold it too long while saying he doesn't need to go, but the hard part is done. He's communicating, and enjoying having more in common with daddy, and only has a couple stickers to go until a prize. He has even used the toilet at both Grandma's and school. Yay!


  1. happy anniversary! and congrats on the potty training with B, I bet that makes your life a lot easier :)

    Good luck with the submission and query writing! I've got my query set (I think) but I'm totally failing at writing a decent synopsis. Arg.

  2. Yay on the potty training. It's so funny a thing to go through. And of course on the anniversary. And the submission. And progress!
    Wow, you've had a great week it seems.
    Queries are hard, but worth the effort put in.

  3. Congratulations, again on the potty training! It's a nice big step for the whole family. Wow - has it really been seven whole years? Happy Anniversary - glad you two had a nice day.
