I had a somewhat successful day yesterday. The Muffin and I started out by going to get groceries. We were almost finished when she said she needed to use the bathroom. By the time we got to the bathrooms, she didn't have to go. We arrived back at home a little after 11:00 and decided to put groceries away and then have a picnic in the backyard. She was thrilled!
It started getting windy and then it started sprinkling. We skipped our after lunch walk and went inside. Then The Muffin started going to the bathroom every few minutes. She had to get up and go a couple of times before she fell asleep for her nap and then a couple of times during her nap and then a bunch after her nap. Let's just say this mommy is happy that her two and a half year old has been potty-trained for a long time and that she was able to make it to the bathroom.
Between all of the pottying I managed to edit the B.abies R Us registry and start a T.arget registry (which I'm not sure I'll even use). We decided the best way to keep track of our "needs" was to do a registry and that way if anyone wanted to give us gifts they could have a resource too. I'm hoping to use cloth diapers after the first couple of months, so I still have to decide on the exact kind I'll be using. I'm pretty sure that I love the kind that I used with Muff, but we'll see. I did all of this during naptime so I missed my nap. I'm trying to wean myself off of an after-lunch nap so that I'll be more productive and get a few extra things accomplished. When I miss my nap I tend to fall asleep later in the day and I've been known to leave The Muffin somewhat unattended. I can usually hear her, but I'm asleep. Last night I had a 30 minute nap and therefore The Muffin went to bed about 15 minutes later than normal. Big Daddy claims that he tried to wake me, but I have my doubts. After my siesta I managed to stay up until 11:00 so that we could watch "My Own Worst Enemy". I slept like a rock last night, but I may try to catch a few zzz's today with The Muffin. I've discovered that I really love naps!
