All I’m able to piece together is a list of sorts. And even I am surprised at the randomness of my disjointed thoughts.
#1. Day 2 of Potty Training came to an abrupt halt at about 2:00 in the afternoon. I have concluded that Junior is not ready. To him, the bathroom is nothing more than a trip to Disney Land. Complete with a water fall. And I, in turn, am not ready for the nervous breakdown I most certainly will enjoy, should Potty Training continue.
I have PMS.
PMS + Potty Training = a visit from the children’s services department.
God knew what he was doing when He saved my most strong willed child for last. I do believe that if Jensen had come first. He would be an only child. Dearly loved and cherished. But, an only child.
The end. For now.
But I’m filing all of your suggestions. Except for the one about floating the Cheerios to use as a target. Because, as I said when I was commenting on my own post, um, no, the kid would retrieve and eat them. While my head exploded into a million tiny brain fragments all over the bathroom walls.
#2. Think back. Way back to the early 90’s. Remember a show called “The X Files”? Hmmm? I was quite addicted to that show. Fiddledaddy was as well. And we would watch it in our respective residences when we were “just friends”, and it never failed that he would call me during a pivotal and frightening plot point.
Scaring the bejeebers out of me.
That was some excellent television, my friends. And do you know what I heard today? “The X Files – I Want to Believe” is coming out AS A MOVIE July 25th. I will be standing in line on that day, wearing a black trench coat. My Mulder will be right behind me. Spitting sunflower shells on his shoes.
I cannot wait.
#3. Thank you for all your sweet e-mails concerning Jensen’s allergy testing. We’re on the right track. I’ve had to eliminate eggs & egg whites, wheat, gluten, peanuts, almonds, peas, legumes, lentils, grapes, grapefruit, fish and all soy. The good news is that he did not test high for dairy, so he can have some cheese every 3 days.
Soy, eggs, gluten, peanuts, and peas are the highest allergen. And people, those ingredients are in just about everything. I am going blind from reading ingredients. But, I’ve found some helpful cookbooks, websites, and great support, ALL THANKS TO YOU!
He is improving day by day.
#4. Thank you all for your complements on the new Blog name and header. I wish I could take credit for it. But, it was Mulder. He’s the talented genius behind the technological workings of Fiddledeedee. I’ve gotten comfortable with the change very quickly. For me. Emme, however having inherited my flair for melodrama, sighs wistfully and says, “I miss It Coulda’ Been Worse“, everytime stinkin’ time she passes my computer.
#5. Can I just say how blessed I feel to live in the United States. Despite all our foibles and problems, we are a free nation. GOD BLESS AMERICA.
Have a wonderful 4th of July weekend everyone!!!
