We were wrong. Monster is not ready to potty train at all. He likes to sit on the toilet, but fails to recognize urges to go. So we will wait and try again in a few weeks. I hate this stage, but I know it will pass. We have three kids who are successfully managing to use the toilet, so I know eventually Monster will too.
I still haven't composed a post about him turning three and how I am in complete denial. I was distracted by a little football game. And also by these books. But don't go to that site if you are reading the last book (Breaking Dawn) because I noticed a few spoilers on the front page. Shannon already posted about the grip these books can have on a person, so go read her post and you'll know why I'm scarce around the internet right now.
Also, this is my 500th post. I was going to do something cool to mark the occassion, but I'm not cool.
