Potty's and cars

I know it isn't a good thing when your FOUR year old asks you if you want to FEEL his poop. Granted it was dried on his underwear, but still! I know it isn't a good thing when your baby sitter asks how your FOUR year old does with wiping his bum because at her house he doesn't. And when she told him to, he threw the toilet paper on the floor, after he wiped his bum. I still know it isn't a good thing when you walk into the bathroom, smell a poop and inquire if your FOUR year old has wiped his bum and he says, "not yet."

It really isn't his fault, at least I don't think it is, I mean isn't it up to me to TEACH him to wipe his bum? But then after that it is all his fault!

We finally filed our 2007 income tax last week. We are using the refund to purchase a pellet stove so we can afford to heat our most drafty, 140 year old, 1,100 sq ft home, at a reasonable cost to our family.

We are also desperately seeking financing for a "new" car because the Volvo has finally been declared dead. It needs work totalling ~$1,000 and that wouldn't guarantee that it will last.

It has been a stressful week, for sure. In spite of it all , we celebrated a wedding anniversary, the kids are healthy and above all, we will get through this...together.

that all sounds very stressful... I hope that, as today is friday, the weekend is restful and paves the way for a better next week!

That is an extremely stressful week. I am happy for you getting your refund for the stove though. I would like a stove or fireplace as well but we'd have to build one.

Stressful times are no fun, but going through them WITH someone is better than going it alone.
