What's For Dinner Friday Print E-mail
Friday, 21 November 2008

I know, I usually do recipe talk on Wednesday (“What’s For Dinner Wednesday” just sounds better) but I made a new recipe yesterday and wanted to share.

Before I share the recipe, you should know that I’m one of those people who make lasagna from scratch. Yes, I’ve bought frozen lasagna before – definitely not ashamed of that. I’m just cheap, and like to add veggies to it. My stand-by recipe is somewhat labor-intensive; I usually make a double batch, which gives me two giant pans or two pans plus a small one, and will spend a few hours doing the noodle-boiling and sauce-making and so on. I love my lasagna recipe, but it is exhausting and takes much planning.

Me And My Big Mouth Print E-mail

Yeah, of course Maddie didn’t pee in the potty yesterday. What else could I expect, since we went out that morning and got a cool little toy? And since I was so sure she had turned that corner, and was ready to move forward?

Honestly, I don’t get it. She used the potty once yesterday, but deliberately chose to use her diaper every other time. At the toy store, she said she didn’t think they had a bathroom, and during the day at home she said it was just easier. I know she’s not trying to be difficult or naughty; I just can’t figure out the best way to help her over this hurdle. I started asking her to sit on the potty every couple of hours, in case she wasn’t planning ahead enough, and by the end of the day she was crying every time I had her sit down on the toilet. I’m making her miserable on this, and I know that’s not helping the situation.

A No-Hitter Day Print E-mail
Wednesday, 19 November 2008

Yesterday, Maddie used the big-girl potty the entire day.

Yes, we’re back to potty training. Maddie gave up using the potty months ago after an accident, vowing to never again use the big-girl potty. But about a week ago Maddie announced she’d like to use the potty occasionally – “Just to go pee, no poopy!” Then two days ago, Maddie pooped in the big potty. Incredulous, she grinned triumphantly. “That was easy! I’m going to poop in the potty all the time now!”

What's For Dinner Wednesday Print E-mail
Wednesday, 12 November 2008

My being sick last week seriously depleted my stores of frozen casseroles and back-up dinners (think Hamburger Helper and the Blue Box – my children were in culinary heaven) and I’ve got some lost ground to make up here. So this week I’m bringing out one of my favorite staples, which I discovered last spring – Chicken Chili Casserole.

Potty Training? Not In This House! Print E-mail
Thursday, 11 September 2008

Before you get excited by that title, get out the noisemakers and balloons, and throw me a cyber-potty party, let me explain. What I mean by “no potty training” is that there’s no potty, no training. At all.

About two weeks ago Maddie woke up one morning and, as had become her custom, went to go potty. She sat on the training potty for a few minutes, half-awake, and decided she didn’t need to go after all. At which time she stood up and peed all over the floor.
