Potty Training and Lights

Martin has decided that peeing and pooping in the potty is tons of fun!! We have had some troubles with pooping in the potty because it hurts when Martin poops because they are HUGE!! OH and Martin likes to inform everyone of his HUGE POOPS...Yes I know its Gross but after three years of diapers I'm so excited when he poops in the potty. WE decided to put pulls up on at night because he is hit or miss at night. We have been waking him up right before we go to bed and putting him on the potty and again it is hit or miss if he pee in the potty. He has also been telling everyone he pooped in the McDonald's Bathroom in the BIG potty. I was really proud of him because I was a little worried he would be scared of the big potty.

Doug and I have been looking at buying some new lights for the front door entry way and the dinning table. The lights that we had work well and they were nice but a little dated so Doug went out and found these two because Chandeliers. The Pictures do not do them justice. I LOVE OUR HOUSE!! Now I just need to find time and the right paint for Martin, Roxie and My bed Rooms. Also we are thinking of staining the kitchen cupboards a dark wood color. That I will need help with because I will need to strip off the current gloss and color and it will be a really big project. Good thing the cupboards are already a light wood so hopefully it won't be to hard.


Oh and the little Princess is walking or should I say RUNNING all over the house.

“A child can go only so far in life without potty training. It is not mere coincidence that six of the last seven presidents were potty trained, not to mention nearly half of the nation's state legislators.”


  1. I can tell you stripping is no fun plus that is when I started all the skin problems I have had for years now. Staining won't be bad but you might want to wait until you can afford to have someone professionally strip them.

  2. congrats to martin and you!! Logan is potty trained too and I am so excited that I only have to change one diaper instead of two! I am sure you feel the same way. I love being a home owner too! there are so many things I want to still do to my house but we are running out of room in our house so I think we aren't going to be here forever. I decided not to put anymore money into something I am not going to have hopefully in like two years!! I love the lights beautiful. I wanted to do something with my cupboards but decided not to. This lady took some gloss of her kitchen chairs just read the post it might help with your cabinets... and also you can check out here for ideas too....
    I really want to use these. Hope this helps!!
