Gray has had diarrhea all day and his bottom is a hot mess. Red, itchy and raw. Open sores. SO all day I’ve been doing kitchen sink baths and letting him soak in baking soda+water. Then I would let him run around naked for as long as I could to dry it out. And it is working slowly but surely!
So this afternoon he had just gotten out of the sink and was in a towel watching Little League on ESPN when I got a call from a client. I went in my office and 5 minutes later he comes walking in with poop dripping down his legs. Naked. Of course I get off the phone FAST and find drops and puddles of liquid poo from the family room to my office.
I get him cleaned up, the house cleaned up and while he watched me he peed.
SO I clean THAT up and put him on the potty where he poops in the potty! (Hear in my voice that this was the highlight of my 30 minutes!)
Then I find some big boy underwear someone passed down to us and think WHY THE HELL NOT just start potty training right now? I’m two accidents in, I might as well!
I ask him if he wants to sit on the potty again and he RUNS in front of me to the upstairs potty and before I can get there he’s holding up a dripping tennis ball and is saying “ball in potty!” with a HUGE smile.
And as I am washing his hands (and my hands for the one millionth time) at the sink from the toilet ball he pees. Seriously. How could I make this up?

I SUCK at dinner. Like SUCK. Tonight we had rice a roni, frozen broccoli, apple slices and chicken strips and they all thought it was a gourmet meal! HA! At least I have efficiently lowered my family’s dinner expectations!
Anyway, when I came across THIS site I about died! They plan your meals AND give you a shopping list AND it’s endorsed by Dave Ramsey? Where can I sign?
So I did. I signed up for 3 months for all of $15 and I hope it will be my cure for last minute crap dinners and too much fast food when I don’t want to cook!
