Who needs an epidemiologist?

Here's the story of me - a well-educated (but broke) woman trying to raise two wee boys, a husband, be Martha Stewart, Ty Pennington, and Rachel Ray all rolled into one, while desparately seeking a career in epidemiology (which is NOT the study of the skin).

I Swear This is the TRUTH (but no indication of future events)

Jonathan WAS present, so he can verify my story.

After spending 7 hours at church preparing for Bible School, Jonathan, kids, and I went to dinner. During the course of dinner, Charlie (my clearly genius not yet 15 month old) said, "I gotta tee tee". Jonathan and I stared at each other in disbelief as this is his first (and only) sentence.

"Charlie, what do you need?"

"tee tee"

"Charlie do you need to go to the potty?"

[fervent nodding of head in the affirmative] (another new trick)

I decided to go with it. I took him to the bathroom, took off his diaper and tried to put him on the potty. He cried and appeared to be frightened by this experience. I took him off the potty and he immediately peed all over the floor with my trying to catch it in my Target brand diaper - though a great improv tool for catching pee - it didn't really work that well.

I'm trying so hard not to have those sweet, sweet images of not buying anymore diapers from running through my mind. He probably won't be accepted to kindergarten because he still wears diapers. :)

    you're right, he is a genius...i'm sure he'll be the youngest person ever to be potty trained.
