Ashley, congratulations on your job interview, and good luck!
Kate, I don't know what to say about you not taking your meds because you don't like the blood draws and don't want to give up the glass of wine. I have to admit, dh started a new med that doesn't allow drinking, and he waited until after all the family visits were over because he really wanted to be able to self-medicate like that. I totally understand that. But I have been depressed in my life, and although it was hard to get motivated when I was there, I would have done anything to try to feel better because I was so miserable.
Potty training has been a success! DH and I keep beaming at each other and talking about how brilliant and adorable our children are. There was only one accident yesterday, and it was probably deliberate. Claire always hides when she poos, and even though we put her potty chair in "Pooh Corner" she still wouldn't go while she was sitting on it. But everything else was magnificent. We even rewarded them by taking them to a farm in the afternoon, and the whole two hours we were gone they didn't have any accidents. We did offer them potty time in the car--we weren't torturing them. Ro has left whatever he's playing with to sprint to the potty and pull his pants down, so it's not just that I'm catching them at the right time. They are getting the signals that it's time, and acting on them. I'm so happy. Even in the past four days, I can't imagine how much $ we've saved on diapers. And it's so nice to think about a couple of months without any diapers before the baby comes along.
