Potty Training Wars

Here she is the potty girl! This is another meltdown that has occured today but had to snap as it is a half on/off chair pic. Mind you she just got a quick bath after taking her cloth diaper off and having another accident. Then she says I have to go potty so she went to the chair after I said let's go on the big girl potty.

Why am I feeling like my 2 yr. daughter is somehow at a war with the potty? She detests it and does not want anything to do with it other then sitting on it with her big sisters big girl underwares.
I read and re-read the potty book although the potty in the book looks like a drinking pitcher and the way were going right now I don't want to give her ideas on peeing in places other then the potty.
Here's a rundown on toilet training my children. Well my 14 yr. old was already potty trained at age 4 yrs. when I met my husband and him, yet had the evening wets which I dealt with pretty well. My first born now 6 yr. old daughter had a few accidents but eventually learned to be at peace with the potty. Now my now 4 yr. old he had a musical potty and it scared him so much that I took the batteries out and on he went. Now this little sweet girl-ey-o of mine just does not want to be free of her disposables, and cloth diapers just yet. I hear ya honey loud and clear! Please give me a sign when you will be ok with your potty.
I have a trick today up my sleeve that I thought of. I will take another picture of this great trial that maybe you are going through or have went through yourself as a momma with your little tyke, or tykers
I am open for advice for that and.....
skin pinching (2 yr. old)
ear playing (4 yr. old)

Blog Love

Every week I thought I would share the blog loves that I like to visit that serve inspiration, a laugh, a good recipe or two, or even a blog that shows purpose at it's best. There are many hundreds of millions and I will never be able to read them all in my lifetime.

I will put the title of the blog along with my love note of worthiness with the specific post that pulled me to these dear people.

And don't you just love the picture that I took this morning of my homemade rooster. It's homemade so you have to love it for what it is. Get use to it if you can as it will be up every week for this special occasion.

Front Door How Neglected You Are...

Oh how embaressed , yet so relieved that I am planning to paint this neglected front door. This is the door that is suppose to welcome people?

I think not in this condition! It says many words and it will say welcome very soon! No great dane teeth marks, chewed door handle, or missing paint really sounds beautiful to me. After reading a post over at the Nester I am for sure selling or not selling a house my front entry needs a lot of lovin.

What color should I choose to welcome someone to stay and chat and have a cup of tea?

Post your front welcoming, or not so welcoming entry and put the plans of what you want to do if there needs to be a change in the very near future.
