Tired, but happy!

So, lots of little things have been happening as of late. Our little house is finally starting to look like a house and not an over-sized storage unit.for one! It's been a long process, having a Velcro Baby who REALLY hates when you put her down, a three year old who can destroy a room in about one-fourth of the time it takes for you to clean it, and being the only person home long enough to DO said cleaning. It's taking me awhile...

Also, after getting sick of Adie making progress in potty training, only to start all over from scratch a day or two later, we decided to rid ourselves of all pull ups/night time training pants, ect. Instead, real panties and pads on the bed. (Almost like house training a puppy lol) So far, I've had a couple messes to clean, but that's life I guess! We were going to the potty every hour, and she was doing good, then decided she'd rather play than potty, so now we're going to start going every 15 minutes. That way, she gets that playing can wait, and potty is most important right now. At least she can't stand the feel of messy undies (she probably could tolerate a wet pull up for hours if we let her...)

I'm trying to get Velcro Baby to be just a TEENY bit more independent. I would really like to have her be able to take a nap by herself, so I'm not confined to my bed while she's one reason I can't get as much around here as I'd like to. But if she stirs while I'm even getting out of my bed, she throws a major fit until I climb back into the bed with her. Don't get me wrong...I LOVE that I have a momma's girl...esp since Adie was so independent, but I can't have her constantly attached to me, or I'll lose what tiny shred of sanity I have left!
