Gah-uh go! Gah-uh go!

Yesterday was a very interesting, eventful day for me (as if that's never happened before). At around 1 PM my munchkin and I were going to go do something and I said to the little 2 year old.

"Okay, but Mommy has to go to the bathroom first."

Oh, the reaction! He drops everything and runs to the bathroom stripping down as he goes (not that uncommon). So I let him climb on up there expecting him to do his usual sit there for a minute and then climb down, but he didn't. Instead he actually forced himself to pee! It was so obvious that he was trying to go that I was just blown away.

So I decided then and there, if this kid can make himself go pee then we're going without diapers the rest of the day and seeing what happens.

That was yesterday and as of today we have had 2 accidents in 24 hours. He's even done the other stuff on the toilet as well (lol, the other stuff, how do you say that online?).

I've never had a kid potty train this early or be so freakin' eager to do so, but this guy is determined! He can barely take his undies off by himself but he sure as heck knows when to come get me.

Anyway, we're on day two so we'll see how well this goes, i.e. if I can keep up the pace of helping him onto the toilet every ten minutes.

Tomorrow I have to work and now I'm secretly looking forward to it (an entire potty training free day!), but don't tell Ralexwin. ;)

Wish us luck.

That is great. I hope he continues to have a desire until he is totally trained.

I wish my kids would do that! Rejeanne is finally getting more verbal and a little interested, but she still doesn't seem to notice or care when her diaper is wet. *sigh* I so love your little son right now! I hope he rubs off on Rejeanne.

Altered Shoe Art: Ring Holder Shoe Tutorial

This was my week two craft for So You Think You're Crafty. I placed third that week for this one. I thought you might enjoy finding out how I made it.


I tried about a million different decorations before settling on one that didn't drown out my rings. I wanted them to the focal point. This is also why I went with black fabric and not something more vivid.

Don't be intimidated by the lack of 101 I'm giving you. It really is a straight forward sort of project. If you know how to use a glue gun without burning yourself you can do this. Just be sure to dust off your imaginative brain space first. :)

The one important thing you might be wondering is how I got the pink fabric to stick to the shoe. I really just Mod Podged it on.

There are several different ways to make ring tubes that you can find online. One I saw used that colored foam paper stuff that you find in the kids craft section. I thought that might have been easier, but I had scraps of batting lying around so I …

How-To Pretend You Work For Anthropologie

The problem with Anthropologie is that they cost way too much money. WAY TOO MUCH! I mean, come on--these book boxes:

Cost $68-$188!

Do you have that kind of money?

I don't, but you know what I do have? I have a library with a cart full of free books that no one really cares about! So guess what I did... I made my own (and then I gave them away because I really don't have anywhere to put them).

Here's how.

I Am A Phoenix

This is a drawing I did right after my divorce, when I was trying to discover my life's course and who I was as a person. Divorce is this horrendously nasty thing that leaves a person with little to nothing of who they were before (at least that's how it was for me). My family was gone, at one point I had counted up blood/legal relatives that had stopped talking to me and it was nearly 60. Things were bad, but one of the recurring comments I heard from other divorcee's was 'Get bitter, or get better.' So I aimed for better. I came up with my own personal code of conduct (Quiet Dignity) and my own personal motto.

The motto the drawing is based off of is: 
"I am a Phoenix. I was born for the fire and I will rise from the ashes."
But, that's not all. Each aspect of the drawing has meaning. I researched these... so I hope I got them right. lol
I chose to make my image reminiscent of a mandala with the most significant parts at the very center. The shape i…
