I certainly don't want this to turn into the "potty blog" but I have to say that amazing things are happening on that potty! Today's score:
Cara: 2 pees, 2 poops
Brady: 1 pee
Eli: 0 pees, 0 poops, 1 snack eaten very slowly while sitting on the potty
I'm not trying to train them at all. They are asking, so I put them on. Cara seems to be able to go on demand. All are still going in their diapers as well. I think it is just a fad with the boys, but I'm wondering if Cara is ready for it. I can tell you that one of the funniest things I have ever experienced is watching three two year olds watching each other go the potty. The commentary is hilarious!!!
No word from Strong about a scan date. I had this sinking feeling today...you know, the what if feeling. While checking out party supplies for the Brady Bash I started asking myself, "What if the scans show something, and we have this big celebration planned...what then?" Those feelings bugged me, nagged at me, all while I was out. On my way home I stopped at Benders and found a book I'd been looking for. It is the follow up book to "When God and Cancer Meet" by Lynn Eib. This book is called "Finding the Light in Cancer's Shadow." The first book is more people dealing with a cancer diagnosis and treatment, and the second is for people done with their treatment. I've only read a few pages, but she likens surviving cancer with driving on black ice. You had completely lost control, not knowing if you would ever stop, but you did. Now you have to keep driving, but you are scared out of your mind that you will loose control and hit the black ice again. That is EXACTLY what I feel like! I haven't gotten to the good stuff yet, the "how to" handle all of these feelings chapters, but when I do, I'll share! I'm just so relieved to read a book by a Christian who acknowledges that the "after" of cancer can be just as terrifying as the going through it stage.
We will be here August 15th...we are celebrating Brady...come what may!
