Dry as a Bone

I think that this blog is going to be dominated with potty-training updates for a while, including a lot of fanfare when Noah finally puts something solid in the potty.  Amanda was laid up yesterday so Lily was my only ally with the Pook.  It took a lot of attention on my part, but he managed to keep his pants dry all day.  In fact, his diaper was dry when I got him up this morning.

Things quickly turned south.  He did not want to go when I put him on the potty first thing.  In fact, I got squirted on my pants for my trouble (I don't think that will be the last time).  It took some fighting, but he did it.  Overall, he's doing pretty well, but there have been two small accidents today.  The good news is that he only let out a little bit instead of making a full puddle.  He still needed new pants, but the mess to clean up wasn't bad.

He didn't eat a very good lunch.  I think he is filling up and eventually will have a bad accident or will finally take care of business.  We're all set to go bowling when he does.  Of course, I'm not sure what will happen for an incentive after that.

Lily is off of school today because of the weather.  The secondary and tertiary roads were legitimately icy this morning because of the sunshine yesterday and low temperatures last night.  Plus, we had no power from about 5:40 - 8:45 this morning.  The good news is that I could work from home.
