Sixth Day's The Charm

Both kids have colds now, so I'm awfully glad Jim's been home the last few days. It helps to have another adult to talk to when you're handing out tissues twice a minute and washing crusty layers of snot off the sleeves of kids' clothing.

Despite being ill, Adelay has made it through her first day without a single accident. Both of them napped frequently and at odd times today, so she slept until seven and is currently still awake, splashing away in a bath (mission: remove mucous from hair.) Which means that from eight thirty this morning (when she woke up DRY) to nine PM tonight, I have not had one disappointing incident of peeling wet underpants off and administering the dreaded let's-quickly-wash-your-bum bath! Whoo hoo!

In other news, I have resisted the urge to snort down in one sitting the massive amounts of clearanced Christmas chocolates which my husband once again purchased in the first week of the New Year, in a gesture of apparent kindness and generosity, but which I secretly suspect to be an act of sabotage. Exhibit A:

YAY Addy!!

OMG - I would kill my husband if he brought home that much chocolate. It might not even last a week around here.

First off -- congrats on the successful potty day!

Second -- That's an INSANE amount of chocolate! (simply divine, but still - INSANE!) And... can I have some??? :)

Mimi said...

Dude, that's a LOT of chocolate. I don't think I could resist.

And yea for Addy!

Kelsey said...

Oh look at all that chocolate!

Sending good "dry pants" vibes your way.

Erin said...

That is SO great about Addy. And encouraging to me that it CAN happen. Wasn't it just last month that you were frustrated about it? And now you had a whole accident free day? Very awesome. We are struggling with it, but I have CONFIDENCE when I read this post.

Jess said...

Oh MY. So MUCH chocolate!

Mommy Daisy said...

Yay for Addy! I was going to post on your last blog post about potty training, but I never got around to it. We've been doing some serious potty training around here too. It's going well for us, but no days without accidents. And we're not even close to staying dry all night. Enjoy the no diapers for me!

Yay for the potty training! I'm still getting up the nerve, thinking of waiting until summer and doing it outside.

I believe that is the most beautiful picture I've ever seen in my entire life. :)

Shelly said...

Dude, give him my address. That is a ridiculous amount of chocolate.

Astarte said...

Holy crap!!!! That's a LOT of candy!!!! I would be in a cocoa-coma by now.

Hooray for Adelay!!!! What a big girl!!!!

Once Maggie got through her first whole day of no pee accidents, she was done with wet accidents. It was another couple of weeks for the other end, but once she figured that out, potty training was done, even at night. We've been gloriously diaper-free ever since.

Your husband has excellent taste in chocolate!

Remember, chocolate is proven to help reduce heart disease. ( :
