Midweek Confessions

It has been a frustrating few hours and then I realized it's "Midweek Confession Day" on E, myself and I so I figured lets air it all out over a LARGE slice of peanut butter pie and my keyboard.

1. Parker has regressed with potty training... and when I say regressed, I mean today he peed on himself 3 times at school and never once made a big deal out of it. He sat in his own pee at circle time until the teacher noticed he was wet. He didn't care at all. He came home in a friend's accident clothes since he already peed in his own. When he came home, he immediately peed on the couch and then again on the floor in my bedroom 20 minutes later. I was SO frustrated, I put him in a pull up and put him in bed for a nap. I just couldn't handle it. We've worked SO hard and now I feel mega frustrated and discouraged.

2. I don't recognize myself in the mirror. I'm tired. I don't do my hair as cute as I used to, my eye brows look like Octomom's (those things are SCARY), and I only shave my legs when I know I'm going to wear a dress. I can't remember the last shower I've taken without Avery on the floor. I LOVE my children but I need a "Taylor self improvement day." .... and a few extra hundred dollars to fall from the sky for new some new clothes that actually fit this post kids body of mine I'm still trying to figure out.

3. Avery turns 1 in less than 2 weeks. I'm in such denial that I haven't sent out all of the invitations.

4. I may let Parker only wear a shirt around the house right now to reduce the amount of laundry I have to do.

5. Avery is starting to have meltdowns that Parker didn't start having until 2. She's my BABY... my baby who is walking and eating big girl food and climbing.... and throwing her body on the ground and rolling when she doesn't get her way. SOOO.... my fiery, red headed, cinco de mayo baby toddler has a temper.... and it scares me. I thought Parker was going to be my difficult child.... I'm 100% sure I was WRONG.

6. Parker has been the sweetest snuggle bug at night and 1st thing in the morning. The day that Avery decided to stop being a baby, he started back. I have to admit, I don't mind it.

7. Sometimes in the car on the way to school, I listen to a morning talk show while the kids watch Curious George. I change it to a Children's Christian Praise CD when I pull in the car pool line.... unless the deaf teacher's aid gets Parker out of the car... then I don't... and I feel odd about that as I waive awkwardly.

Your turn!


  1. These are great! I dread potty training. How do you do it?

  2. Potty training is the pits!! My friends and I always joked that we wished we could send our kids away to a potty training camp and when we pick them up they are good to go!! I think there is a money making opportunity there. LOL

    Seriously though, hang in there!! Potty training is full of ups and downs for sometimes a year or longer. He will get it.
