It just got better.

Which means that I'm pretty darned happy right now. I have heard so many moms with other "older" children tell me that things will get better. Well. It's kind of hard when my 16 month old daughter constantly wants to sit on the potty. Not so bad in itself, but she dunked her left foot in the toilet, sock, shoe pant leg and all. And just moments before walking out the door to leave. It also wasn't too bad when she told me she needed, "potty, ca-ca" but only after she had already pooped. She proceeded to take off said dirty diaper, stepped in it in an effort to get to the toilet also. Oh well. I guess it comes with the territory. I wasn't really pushing the potty training issue with her, but she is constantly seeing Eddie sitting there. So of course, monkey see, monkey do.

Totally unrelated as to why I'm happy. But like I said. Things with kids are hard. Busy. Interesting, and fun. So. Moms keep telling me it will get better. And then my perfect sleeper stopped being perfect. For nearly 7 months, or was it 7 already? Eddie stopped sleeping and he wrecked my nights. He wouldn't go to bed, stay in bed and he wouldn't sleep all night.

Well tonight he went to bed. He was put down once!!! ONCE! He said goodnight, and he went to sleep. I don't know how to act. I'm happy, and my life just got a little better. Seasoned moms know a thing or two about kids. I think I'm getting seasoned a bit right now. Going to go have some "ME" time! Ciao~~~
