|« Thank you and Goodbye.....||Delicious turkey stew... »|
Today is the first day that I was able to get back to the normal routine. Holidays are wonderful, but they throw off your equilibrium and then some. I ate a semi- lousy breakfast (pumpkn bread made by someone who isn't a BTD fan), fed my children what was easy (gluten free cereal with no nutritional value whatsoever), and whisked ourselves off to the YMCA. Once I got there, it was socially delightful- Everyone is there to 'detox' in their own personalized way. I also pushed myself physically harder than I have in a long time, and I hope to reap the rewards tomorrow (better sleep tonight, sore muscles in the morning!).
Lunch for the A's: peanut butter on lightly salted rice cakes
fresh carrots, celery sticks and green grapes
coffee for Mom about one hour later
Both of us feel full, and I think I managed to consume 2 cups of raw veggies. I think I will prepare tuna, rice, and broccolli tonight - along with sliced gala apples. Who knows if the O's will be brave and join us, and decide on another course of action. I just keep trying to get Dad to 'grill' beef whenever possible!
As for the title of this little blog, I wish you had been there. If we had had a video camera, we would have won the 10,000 or the 100,000 prize on America's funniest videos!
My three year old is very reluctant to toilet train. I have done everything humanely possible to prepare him, and it has gotten to the point where he fights me at every diaper change. I finally decided to keep his little behind naked and encourage him to use the facilities when he has the urge. This morning, he did decide to poop in the corner of the bathroom (and onto the floor) which is better than nothing. But whenever a friendly voice asks him to sit on the toilet, he emphatically replies "NO!" (Imagine a bank president slamming down a stamp onto a loan doucmnents or a judge slamming down a gavel. "Permission denied!"
Early this morning, Dad - in a very funny cartoon voice says to him "Do you have any poops or pees?"
My child runs over to his little potty chair and sticks his head into the opening and his naked butt up into the air. We both just cracked up.
I guess he told us.
