The South

Where tea is sweet and accents are sweeter; summer starts in April; front porches are wide and words are long; macaroni and cheese is a vegetable; pecan pie is a staple; Y’all is the only proper pronoun; chicken is fried and biscuits come with gravy; everything is darling and someone is always getting their heart blessed. -unknown

Potty Talk

How many years will it be before my children will understand the following concept?

When I ask, "Do you have to go to the bathroom?" ....that means do you have any urge to go to the bathroom. Do you have any feeling at all?

When will they stop waiting until the very last possible second to run into the bathroom, just barely making it to the potty.

I am growing weary of my children telling me, in the car, that they have to go to the bathroom REALLY BAD! Every time I explain that if they have to go to the bathroom really bad, then they had to go 10 minutes ago when I asked them (before we got in the car.)

Sorry to those who are reading this and don't care about our potty situation. I just had to get it off my chest. No joke, I have had the same discussion with them about 20 times. When will it end?
Well, I do know there is an end in sight. I can't foresee having this discussion with Brooks when he is 15, but you never know.

Peyton will do that to me when I pick him up from school. All the sudden it is an emergency! Drives me crazy!
