Red Paint

What a weekend

Lessons learned this weekend:

  • little matchbox cars do not really flush down the toilet – they go part of the way and then back everything else up
  • it is not MORE fun to try to unclog a toilet that has poop in it
  • Once a princess starts potty training, she will continuosly take off her pull up in bed after she pees in it
  • paint should not be moved from one room to another without securing the lid
  • not even if it is just a quart of paint
  • especially if it is RED paint
  • being carried over beige carpet
  • and you have a toddler underfoot
  • a little red paint goes a looooooong way on beige carpet
  • red paint spilled just right can look like someone was murdered in your son’s nursery
  • nothing, i repeat NOTHING gets red paint out of beige carpet
  • no matter how hard you try, even if you get most of it out, red paint still looks really bad on beige carpet and will have to be replaced or covered, so why bother with all the work trying to get it out?
  • when a pacifier “pappy” becomes a casuality of spilled red paint, owner of the pappy will throw a fit like you have never seen before
  • said toddler will remind you and ask you why you spilled red paint on the deceased pappy
  • everything you use to try and clean red paint will just end up red
  • if you move everything onto the capet in the denΒ to clean the most embarassing parts of your floor, an old neighbor and her three grandkids will stop by unannounced to catch you in the act while your kids run amuck in the excitement
  • red paint does not come out of beige carpet
  • do not attempt to relocate red paint until it is properly secured
  • even the most beautifully decorated nursery looks like crap with red paint on top of beige carpet
  • if you do not put a diaper on baby Isaac and put him back in daddy’s lap to finish eating (instead of going straight to bath which is why no diaper in the first place), he will pee on daddy and daddy will not think it is nearly as funny as you think it is
  • no matter how funny it really is
  • red paint
  • beige carpet
  • bad combination

Changes Abound

So not too much is going on with us lately. We have only been caring for an infant, redecorating two rooms, transitioning toddler to “big girl” room…..since we haven’t had much going on, we thought we’d throw in a little potty training, too.

Actually, Princedd has decided it is time. She peed on the potty four times yesterday and told me this morning she needed to go. It has totally been hee thing, I just put the potty in front of the tv and she decided to run around naked and pee.

Why am I awake at 1am? I just fed Isaac and did the dishes – we have to run the washer every night now so we don’t run out of bottles! But I should be asleep. Or at least going to sleep. It’s hard to ignore the quiet, even when I know I will pay for it tomorrow. Things are still going well, though we are counting the days until we can start trying to “sleep train” little Isaac. It worked perfectly with Princess and she was sleeping through the night at 6 weeks but I’m afraid it may not go as smoothly this time. Guess we’ll see. πŸ˜€

I have to say that while I still think he is the most adorable baby, I definitely do not think its cute when Isaac poops when I’m changing his diaper. It’s like I crank it out of him every time I pull his legs back to put a new diaper underneath him. Today: 3 diapers! FIVE minutes! What is that about?

We still haven’t decided on a middle name for Isaac and Speedy and Princess still call him “baby Isaac”. So maybe his first name will just be baby. That’s mean, isn’t it?

I have absolutely nothing worthwhile to say tonight.
