Poor kids, I was stressed potty training the two oldest. i took a slightly different approach with the two youngest, and it was soooo easy :D Good Luck!

My UPS guy leaves a dog treat for my dog, now she expects it from the mail man and Fed Ex guy too, she is often left depressed when it's not UPS delivering <---True story

I so hated potty training. It's ALL behind me now. But I *kinda* miss those days.

As for Mr. UPS Dude...he needs to learn reciprocal manners!

A goldfish? Make them clean the dirty thing too. [the library that is]

A library that gives out goldfish to kids? Who thought that one through?

The pottytraining bit cracked me up.

Ugh, my 2 yr. old wants nothing to do with potty training right now! I never used Pull-Ups with my first & don't think I'll be using them now.

Going to check out the Back to School giveaways. Happy PINT! :)

What's next? The library giving away puppies?!? That does seem like a really strange prize!

Glad to hear your laptop and blackberry are all better now.

What was the UPS man thinking,lol?

Getting a goldfish at the library as a prize is a bit bizarre. What ever happened to books, bookmarks or little toys?

August 3, 2010 at 10:41 AM

What the frick-frack? Blogging makes time pass faster than having a newborn baby! I swear I was here yesterday and it was like a week until giveaway time. sheesh. Well, I better adjust my pull-ups and go enter!

Oh...I love the idea of hubs potty training! You should let him do that!!!! And, it's so true when adults say weird things to kids that confuses them. My Emma-Kay has to ALWAYS know a persons name...no matter who it is, she HAS to know your name...well at dinner the other night, she kept asking the waitress what her name was, and she kept getting ignored...it annoyed the crap out of me!!!!!

Ah, husbands.

Mine says "I thought we sleep trained him months ago."

Then, when the babe cries for 4 minutes in the middle of the night he says "I can't believe you're letting him cry. You KNOW I can't sleep like this."

I can't wait for potty training.

I vote for Daddy taking his turn with potty training also!

LOL at hubs having no idea how the kids were PT'd. We are starting right now, and daycare wants us to use pull-ups. I sent in some training pants and plastic pants to go over them. They only tried once so far. LOL

I can only imagine how much money I would have wasted putting him in pull-ups.

I wouldn't have paired libraries and goldfish. hm.

I think I would've been confused if the UPS man said 'thank you' instead of 'you're welcome' too lol

How DO you potty train a kid? You're gonna have to do a post on that . . . I have no clue how I would even go about it or start.

August 3, 2010 at 2:23 PM  
Blogger Nancy C said...

When somebody doesn't say, "You're welcome" back to my kid, he'll keep saying, "Thank You," thinking they didn't hear him.

I'm not ready to have the "Honey, some people are just assholes" talk yet.

Goldfish? I would have said, "sorry...we're allergic. Do you have a puppy instead?" That's bad...

I hate when people don't use appropriate manners with kids...it's so important!!!

I need to potty train my youngest but I am super scared to get rid of all the pull ups. I know it needs to be done but I keep hoping the Potty Fairy will show up and *poof* my boy goes potty!

Wanna know what's worse than the library giving out goldfish as a reading incentive? Having it die the day after your kid brings it home. Uh-huh. Good luck with that!

That is so weird that the library is giving out goldfish as a prize.
Our kids do grow up so fast. It makes me sad...

Well, there's a reason right there why I will never do a summer reading program:) The last goldfish we had in our house committed suicide!

All I can say to the goldfish is - Really? Are you kidding me?

I refuse to even think about potty training since I know it was a nightmare with me!

Oh man, I so feel your pain on the potty training!! I'm in the midst of PT hell right now myself!

Can't believe the librarian gave your kids a goldfish!!! That's just plain cruel...doesn't she know you're the one who's gonna get stuck taking care of it!

My kids always notice when someone doesn't use their manners or use their manners correctly. It can be kinda confusing for them!
