Daily Post Challenge 5 (Friday)

Nervous! Anxious! Excited!

Just a few words of how I am feeling right now. Tomorrow will be the first post for my Fun Fit Saturday Series.

I just hope people read and leave comments. Comments are a blogger's validation. I like to know that people are reading what I am writing. I wonder if people think I am as funny as I think I am? To tell you the truth, I crack myself up!!



And that's a good thing.....



.....I think......


Yes, yes, it is.



Right?

Come closer, I don't want to type this too loudly....



I have nothing to blog about today.





So, that's all.

Have a great rest of the week!!

Day Post Challenge Day Two (Tuesday)

Jaime over at I have a Coupon for that! is another friend I met at What To Expect. We both have toddlers born in Dec. '07 and have gotten to know each other better through Facebook. I think the night we really "talked" was the night we both stayed up and tried to get one of those elusive Old Navy coupons (remember that, Jaime?). I don't think either one of us got one, but we did find a partner in bargain hunting.

Not too long ago, she started a blog and now has over 200 followers!! She hosts lots of giveaways and always has a post about deals to be found. She also includes recipes, freebies, reviews, and crafts. (Told you there was a bunch of stuff on there!)

You can find here on twitter and facebook.

Daily Post Challenge Day 1 (Monday)

I am so excited to announce that I have partnered with Frugal Little Thing and will be posting a weekly health/fitness post on Saturdays.

I met Frugal Little Thing (FLT) back in 2007. We both frequented the What To Expect Dec. 07 baby board. Like many of the people on that board we carried our friendship over to facebook. I have met some great ladies through that board and have had so much fun watching our little ones grow up.

FLT is a master money saver and decided to start a blog a few months ago. It is a wonderful site with tons of couponing, money-saving, and going green information.

Click here for a post about her weekly schedule.
When she talks about her Saturday guest poster, that's me!!

Tomorrow, I will be highlighting another money saving blog. I met her on the WTE board too!

You can also find FTL on facebook.

List

A friend of mine does her posts as lists. I thought I would steal the idea. She'll never know.

1. I have a goal this week. I will post one thing each day. Monday through Friday. One post a day. I will do it. I will. Maybe.

2. I lost weight this week.

3. This blog started as a weight loss blog, but I think it's now just a blog.

4. I keep saying I'm going to move everything to the new blog, but keep forgetting about it. Does that make me a bad blogger? Do I care? **Update: This is the new blog. Getting closer!!**

5. My list is not as deep and thoughtful as my friend's. That's okay.

6. I love storms. The sounds, the smell, the colors, the rain, the wind. It's all so beautiful.

7. I wish I had more than two followers.

8. I wish people would make comments on my posts.

9. The end.

Potty Training Woes

The Boy has no interest in being potty trained.

None, nada, zilch.

The Nephew who is 16 months older is potty trained and determined to help The Boy along the way. Whenever they are together, The Nephew takes him to the bathroom and goes through the routine, step by step. The Boy has no interest and it frustrates The Nephew to no end. It's actually quite comical to watch.

Today The Brother and The Nephew were visiting. They brought dinner and after eating, the boys were playing when all of the sudden, The Nephew freezes and stops what he is doing. In all the excitement of playing, he didn't notice that he needed to pee until it was too late.

He thought he was in trouble and didn't want us to notice. The Brother kept telling him it was alright and accidents happen, but The Nephew wasn't sure whether to believe him.

Finally after he was cleaned up, and we were walking back to the living room, I heard The Nephew ask The Brother, "Daddy, are you happy?"

How sweet. It was his way of making sure that his daddy wasn't mad at him.

Ofcourse, The Brother reassured him that all was fine and we all went on our merry way.

The Boy still isn't interested in the potty and I'm not going to force it. That day will come and until then, we'll pay out the wazoo for diapers.
