April 6 07

at 8:16 am i gave my 18-and-a-half-month old daughter chocolate for breakfast.

why…you ask?

because at 8:05 she asked for the toilet, we put her on, and bingo…both pee and poo.

and we are so proud.

we are not getting too excited just yet. she asked for the toilet 10 times yesterday, and we had only one successful pee. we aren’t pushing the toilet training thing. sure, i said she needed to be trained…but i was mostly kidding. (i’m likely more ready to stop changing diapers than she is to actually be out of them)

just to give you a little update…yesterday and today Isabella slept in until 6. and my husband, heaven bless him, let me sleep in until almost 7:30 yesterday and until 6:30 this morning. so…Houston, we have improvement. usually, the two of us fight while we are at my parents. we are tired, and cranky, and tend to take it out on each other. but this time, for whatever reason, we are getting along GREAT (no…it’s not because he let me sleep in…not at all…) go team martell (which is kind of like team jolie, only a little less humanitarian and a little less good looking)!!

It’s that time of the month again…no, not THAT time (you sickos!), it’s ROFL time. There are many a blogger who make me smirk. smile. giggle. even laugh. but this month, this post over at Oh, The Joys, had me laughing out loud and peeing in my pants.

i find toilet humor funny. i giggle whenever someone says ‘duty’ and i lose my shit when i see the ‘Golden Flow’ brand orange juice (can you imagine?) and i am a sucker for jokes about body parts, including the infamous ‘vagine’ (said in a very Borat-like way). If you are really a twelve-year-old at heart, this post is for you. Trust me…the picture of Captain Kirk fondling many ‘puitas’ will have you snorting your milk out of your nose.

  1. My wife and I laugh every time someone says something like, “so what I do do is…” One time during a Bible study someone said it. I kept it together. She lost it. They thought she was crying. She was trying to hold back laughter! Then I lost it.

    But ‘dookie’ has got to be the best word for it all. I giggle every time.

  3. Thank you so much for the ROFL. I deeply appreciate it and am blushing four shades of red. (But I love potty humor too!!)

  4. Toilet training is more than a good reason to celebrate. Hell, I’d be giving her chocolate too!

  5. No Idol talk this week? Disappointing, I must say. . .

  6. Did she know she was going to get chocolate? I need to know because it’s a “No Go”, so to speak, in the potty training department around here.

    So, congrats on the potty and great choice of the potty humor!

  7. Thanks for turning me on to “Oh, The Joys!” She is a stitch!

    (Good grief – when do you find time to read all those “favorite blog?”)

  8. Anytime anyone says “fart” on tv or in a movie I cannot stop laughing. Not sure why. We’ve had to actually pause live tv so I can get over it.

  9. The monkey peed in the toilet yesterday. But, I don’t count it because she was with Josh, and she was crying the whole time…. (yikes…).

    Glad things are going well!!!! Come home soon!

  12. YAY! And, WAHOO!

    DEFINITELY cause for chocolate.

    Comment by Her Bad Mother on April 7, 2007
  13. I agree that chocolate at 8:16 AM was definitely justified in that case. 🙂

  14. It’s a rough time of year for those of us with early risers. Glad to hear yours is getting a little better.

  19. It’s funny I made the “time of the month – no not that” reference when I posted about ROFL yesterday!!!

    How great that Easter is tomorrow & you’ll be stocked up on chocolate!
