no more “old nonsense,” got it?


“Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could; Some blunders and absurdities crept in; Forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”

–Ralph Waldo Emerson, writer and philosopher (1803-1882)

I have a question for y’all — did any of you ever have a kid who insisted on peeing all over the house? No special reason, just wondering.

    I don’t have an answer to your question, however, these worked really good for a friend of mine that had a similar problem with her toddler….”toilet time targets”…here’s the site:

    Then you just flush ’em down, or what? Cuz that would be grim to pluck them from the bowl. I’ve heard Cheerios are good for “target practice,” too. Thank God for Cheerios. Teething, car trips, toddler snacks, target practice, midnight snack for Mommy when she’s nursing AND HAS TO EAT SOMETHING RIGHT NOW, DAMMIT. A bowl of cereal with sliced banana on top has gotten me through many a rough moment.

    Get this — After he whizzed all OVER the carpet, he stood back and said “That made a *big* mess.” As if he’d had absolutely nothing to do with it. What’s it in Spanish? Se rompio, I think. (“It was broken.” Not “I broke it.”)

    Also, about 10 minutes later he asked me, “Would you like to see what looks like pee in the kitchen, Mommy?” The only correct answer to that is “No.” Foolishly I said, “Yes.” (It was two piles of cat puke.) Tired of furry cats, furry dog, and puddlin’ preschooler.

    Stick him outside and let him pee all over the place. It’s supposed to get up to 70 today. I heard about these little fishies at Target for little boys to throw in the toilet and aim for. At 3 my boy still liked to pee sitting down, so we never used them.
