Since I seem to have, um, misplaced (in my brain) the post I had planned today, here's what is going on:
After no poop for 72 hours, we have ignition. In the potty even. Three times! There's still lots of "I'm not feeling well" associated with the poop, but I think we're making progress. Oliver woke up an hour after going to bed and asked to go to the potty. Once there, he said he needed to poop and that I needed to go away for a little bit. He asked me to come back before he finished so I'm not sure what is up with that, but I'll do anything he asks at this point. I did take the opportunity to explain that if he pooped a little bit each day we wouldn't be having all this drama.
The social calendar is heating up. We have a sitter tomorrow night so we can go to a reception and concert. This weekend we have a few families coming for brunch, a date night to celebrate CD's birthday, and a baseball game on his actual birthday. We're also plotting for a regular date night with one of our sitters. I'll be shocked if we pull it off, but it's a worthy goal.
I finally contacted a professional about a blog re-design. Shut up...I'm really doing it this time. Stay tuned.
