Potty News

I think the day has finally come where my little Ethan is ready to use the potty. I've been talking to him about using the potty now that he needs to give up his diapers to his little cousins Brody and Chloe. Finally after trying 5 times to potty train he is getting it. This morning he came into our room at about 6:30 am and asked to go pee and I took him. I also removed the pull up and he went running to his room. He opened the drawer that contains all those cute itty bitty underpants and put his Thomas ones on. I thought ok let's go with the flow today. I asked him to go back to bed. I knew in my heart that this could end up in a huge mess but hey what's life without some drama early in the morning. He slept for another hour and woke up dry. Today the whole day he tried his best and only had one accident.

I can not tell you how happy I am that he decided to do it because now I know he is ready. We always try to push them because their older siblings did it before they did and I am so happy that our pediatrician always encourages us to listen to our children and only do things when they are ready. Let's see what tomorrow brings. I have explained that after we drop off Tristan at school that he will be able to change to his underwear.

You are one busy person. I really think it would take atleast 3 of me to do what you alone do!! Gosh! you are amazing. Keep up your good work and great spirit. I have a few recipes that I wanted to share with you too. Maybe next time you come in!. I don't measure and make so didn't want to post them. Take care.

Hi Veronica,
Thanks for replying and all the nice things you said. I wish I knew how to make those muffins but one of these days I will try to make them! My husband mostly eats chicken as his protein or once or twice a week, he eats salmon. It is so hard to come up with a variety of chicken recipes !! I made breaded chicken using the same process as one would do in normal breaded chicken . Except for the coating, i used the crispbread. I ground it up, added garlic powder, onion powder, some dried parsley, some half salt and some crushed red pepper. Cut up the chicken breast into 2 inch pieces, dunked them in egg white then coated with the ground cripsbread mix. Place them on a baking tray with some cooking spray on them. Bake at 375 F for around 20 minutes turning them once in between. I made a dipping with it using the walden farm apricot spread, some dijon mustard and the mayo(if needed). It comes out quite good actually. Try it!! and let me know. I also made turkey burgers will give u the recipe in the next comment.. Have a great long weekend!
