on to day 2 of home-lock-down, bare bum style.
aka potty training.
aka i'm losing my mind.
potty training may be easy for some.
but around here, it is not.
so, we've got nothing but the essentials goin' on around here:
and of course, the cute bare bum to do the business:
insert a few tears, wet spots, and extra bribes, and we're good to go.
though exhausted, we ended day one in good spirits.
goals for today:
1. convince Ellie out of her bare bumness and into undies.
2. be patient.
3. have more successes (in-the-potty's) than failures (out-of-the-potty's).
4. be patient.
5. smile and be encouraging.
6. be patient. even if that means spending all. day. long. in the bathroom.
7. be patient.
fingers crossed that day two forecasts just as many cuddles and smiles as day one, and not so much precipitation...
if you know what i mean.
