Vacation and Potty

I took a couple of days of vacation after the first. By vacation, I mean I did nothing, not a thing, I hardly moved. It was quite enjoyable. I finished reading Memoirs of a Geisha and Outlander. Outlander took me a while to get into, as I started it back in..October?? but when it got me, it got me.
On the third day of vacation, Randy asked, "So aren't you going to do anything while you are off?"
I glanced up long enough to say, "Are you crazy? First Japan and now Scotland without getting off the couch? I believe I am doing plenty."
So while doing nothing, I finished off my Fall into Reading list!! Sure it is winter, but I finished! Can't we just be happy about that?
Princess H is making small strides in the potty training field. While her Mama was doing nothing she began to insist on using the potty. More often than not, this either means sitting on the potty forever without actually using it or stripping off her clothes and running through the house peeing on the floor. I prefer the first, if you must know. But TWICE now, she has actually USED the potty! There was much celebration and laughter in The House of Madness, I assure you. The princess was praised for her skill. Only Super Z was unimpressed. His one statement was, "So? I poop in the potty AND pee." He just loves sister getting limelight...

So did you HEART Outlander? Like as in it's the best book ever written in the English language? You do realize there are five more after it, right? The first two are the best.

WELCOME BACK!

I'm trying to potty train Aaron now....17 months. I wonder if I'm starting too young. He's managed to pee a couple of times but most of the time I just give up....

Did you like Memoirs of a Geisha? I really enjoyed that book. I thought the movie did a pretty good job of it too.
