Mommy Moment Mondays! brought to you by Frugal Vicki over at Frugal Mom Knows Best. You know we all have them. That beautiful moment that makes you realize you are a mom, the moment that something you swore you would never say comes out of your mouth, those moments you couldn't even make up if you tried? Well, let's share shall we? Those moments in which we are pulling our hair out, trying not to cry, laugh, or scream. Moments we think we would never see, and moments we think we will never laugh at? LINK UP or I think Frugal Vicki said something about becoming the spam queen.....
So…here’s one of my moments.
And I must add, this moment has happened over and over and OVER since beginning the potty-training with Lil Lady. It starts off with me being the organized mom….I have a bag of prizes, I have tons of stickers, I have a potty that will play music…..and I also have a Little Man who thinks HE needs to sit on the potty. Lil Lady is 3 1/2 and Little Man just turned 2.
Me to Lil Lady: "Time to pottyyyyyyyyy!! Are you ready?" (said in my sing-songy voice I use to make it sound like something fun)
Lil Lady: "No."
Me: "Oh come on…..I have stickerrrrrs!" (sing-songy voice again)
Lil Lady: "nuh-uh."
Little Man: "Me Me Me!!!"
Me: "Don’t you wanna hear it play musicccc???" (Sing-songy voice getting a bit weaker)
So I take Lil Lady’s hand and
Lil Lady is already starting to pull away, Little Man is getting all excited and trying to pull his pants down. Lil Lady has her knees clamped together so I CAN’T get HER pants down. I’m tackling Lil Lady…..Little Man has his pants and diaper half off….Lil Lady is getting louder and more insistent that she is NOT sitting on the pot….Little Man is still saying “Me Me Me!!”
I am breaking a sweat now.
Me: "Lil Lady!!! I have a
Little Man: "Me Me!!!!"
Oh. Good. Lord. You. Have. Got. To. Be. Fucking. Kidding. Me.
I finally get a hold of Lil Lady
But what does she do?? The sweet Lil Lady that didn’t want to sit on the potty in the first place? She goes over to Little Man, uses all her power and basically karate chops him off the pot and then says, “It’s MY turn!!”
He’s laying on the floor, she’s towering over him, and she adds….”and YOU don’t PUSH!!”
It ends with neither one of them peeing on the potty, Lil Lady is ticked off, Little Man is planning his revenge and I’m ready for some caffeine and Xanax.
Can potty training be any more fun??
