I have been away for a long time. We got rid of home internet for a while< and when we finally crawled our way back out of the 16th century I have been really busy. I have had a lot of work to do< my normal job has had a lot of overtime lately, and when I haven’t been working I have just wanted some quality time with the family.
Things have been going great around here though. We found out recently that Rose is well ahead of the curve when it comes to reading, math, and problem solving. It is the problem solving part i figured I would talk about today. A few months back we started potty training, and it started off great! We figured that she was going to breeze through this milestone as she had others, and in her own
i’m gonna do things my fucking way no matter what y’all think way she did.
She would tell us when she needed to potty and then she would go no fuss. Number two was a little more tricky. She wouldn’t go and us asking seemed to just offend ever fiber of her being. Then one night, Natalie and I were sitting in the living room watching some t.v.. We heard the door open and
Insidious our sweet daughter walked in buck naked. She then outstretched her little hand as if to make an offering and said, “here daddy, here”. You can guess what she was holding, no? oh, well I’ll let you in then. She was holding a turd. This happened a few nights in a row dubbing her The Shit Giver. We didn’t know what to do. We tried everything. Including naked dancing and sacrificing a chicken some off the wall tactics. Finally we got her to stop taking her pull up off. luckily the past week she has told us when she needs to go every time she needs to, and we haven’t had to ask her. Hopefully she has it under control.
I am going to try to keep up with the blog, but i make no promises
here is and update on what Rose looks like now.
