Hibernating

Hey readers,

My word of the week is:




This is because I am just so tired this week due to the weather being meh and sucking all my energy out. It’s so dark and grey that I just can’t muster the motivation to get a single thing done. If it weren’t for the responsibilities of having children I would spend my time drinking copious amounts of tea and reading the kindle in bed. One can dream though hey, but in reality I am mere a bouncing trampoline for my sons!
On a more positive note I have finally worked out how to use the reward chart properly for the boys albeit with help form a professional. Now it is a lot more cleared to understand and better to manage. I definately have seen an improvement in the boys behaviour since we have introduced the reward chart.  More so in my eldest but that is understandable as my youngest is not fully aware what the heck is happening other then shinny stickers!  Luckily however my youngest likes to copy my eldest so he is pretty much well behaved in the grand scheme of things.
Now on to more pressing matters in my household: POTTY TRAINING!!!
We have started to do some potty training in a relaxed way so that my youngest gets used it the whole idea. He is now aware when he needs a wee and loves washing his hands. That is his favourite thing to do at nursery, haha! He also promptly tells me when he has done a poo, announcing ewwwww and then points to his bottom!
He did his first poo in his potty this week which we all celebrated and danced to. I never thought that I would ever get so excited about poo. My youngest does love to explore his potty. I am very proud of him as he is so good and helpful which  makes the job a lot easier to tackle.

Cheers for reading X

  1. Hehe, before we have kids we can’t imagine ever being excited about the contents of a potty, can we?! But once the kiddies arrive and potty training starts then it becomes the most exciting thing ever! Xxx #Wotw

  2. The cold weather and really dark mornings are rather pants. Still we’re half way thru January already…
    The last part of your post made me laugh. As parents we spend so much time talking about wee and poo – I’ve sometimes carried this blasé attitude to poo into conversation with people who don’t have children and they all think I’m crazy!!
    Best of luck with the potty training xx
