I am truly beat.
It takes a lot of will power for me to get through my days these days. I have to just take a deep breath and push through until 7 PM bed time when I can say goodbye to the chilly willies. I think part of it is the fact that I am still relatively under the weather but trying to live my regularly-paced life. Another part is that I have not returned to exercise yet, which in my getting-older age really affects my energy level.
The best part of my day today was the potty-training moments. We took away the pull-ups on Friday afternoon and have been doing cold-turkey potty training since. This morning Lil Sis was hilarious...she yelled:
Lil Sis: "Emergency! Emergency!"
I replied: "What?" (even though I already suspected)
Lil Sis: "Lil Sis pee-peed on the ground!" I loved that she called herself her own name and took a page out of Big Sis' book by yelling EMERGENCY! EMERGENCY!
Later that day she RUNS past me into the bathroom as fast as she can. I said: "What?" She said: "I'm going big-giants" (big giants=poop). So onto the toilet she went! Yes!
Later in the afternoon I was at my fitting for the Pull-ups commercial and I stepped into my holding room's bathroom. When I finished she ran in: "I have to go bathroom too!" Eureka!
And finally tonight as she was trying to confiscate one of her potty prizes, I explained to her that she couldn't have a prize unless she went to the bathroom in the potty. She said: "OK!" and I heard the pee. When I went in to check on her she was sitting on the toilet peeing THROUGH her panties.
