You Win Some, You Lose Some

You win some and you lose some. Such is life. Such is parenting.

Win: Miss D, who turns 2 in December, has gone potty in the potty six or seven times in the past two weeks. Most of the time she decides to sit on the potty all by herself. She is so independent!

Lose: Miss D thinks she should change her own diaper. A wet diaper is a mess. A dirty one is a major mess. The first time she took her dirty diaper off she required a bath not even 10 minutes after she got out of the bath tub. Since this incident she has gotten better at letting me know she needs to be changed.

Lose: I sometimes get overwhelmed and react in ways that are :::human::: I have to forgive myself to acting and reacting in ways that are imperfect. Life happens.

Win: My little ones still take naps and some times this means that I get to take naps too!

Win: Miss D came to me and pointed at her diaper. I thought she needed changed but it turns out she was dry. So I asked if she needed to go potty. She shook her head yes and ran to the bathroom.  A few minutes later she was calling MOM, MOM, Moooommmy! She had gone in the little potty. After dumping it out I let her flush! Hooray!
