It's Potty Time...Kinda

Ty has been resistant all summer to sitting on the potty, locking up and screaming when I tried to get him to sit down. I had all but thrown in the towel when one day I asked Ty if he wanted to sit on the potty and he said "yes". I was elated! Although we use a bit of bribery (gummy bears) he continues to sit sporadically on the potty. It's usually at night and in the morning, as he has continued to refuse to sit on the potty at daycare. I think it's the lack of gummy bears :) However, we are thankful for some progress. This week was a big one, as Ty told us that he had to go "pee pee" and asked us to take off his diaper so he could sit. His diaper was dry, he sat down, went pee pee, and then asked for a diaper. It was a sight I felt like I'd never see. Everyone keeps telling me he's still young and boys train later, but Mike and I are trudging on with trying. Hopefully it'll catch on one of these days and we'll be free from the expensive prison of diapers. Here's hoping!

School Days, School Days

Ty and I are both back in school. He is happily back at the Children's Academy with his old friends and teachers, and I am pounding it out back at the high school. I'm also back into the thick of being a cheerleading coach, so most of my "free time" is spent with high school girls at high school football games. I try to take Ty with me for a few games, so as to not lose too much of my time at home without spending it with him. This year Loveland got a new addition to our Varsity pregame, a huge blow-up tiger head and tunnel. Needless to say Tyler was obsessed with the tiger, running through it over and over again. Mommy and Ty had a great time bonding over Loveland football, popcorn, "cream" as he calls it (ice cream), cheers and blow-up animals:) GO TIGERS!
