Have you seen that crazy show on TLC? I am, by no means, endorsing it, but if you choose to watch it, it’s hard to look away. It’s like watching a train wreck happen in slow motion, and there’s nothing that you can do about it. Just try not to think about the fact that these are real children because that will just make you said, and try to keep their little souls in your prayers because that’s all you can do.
If you see my child in the next few days, please do not judge us and assume that I’m one of those stage moms. I know she’s sporting very dark, nearly black, purple fingernail polish. Trust me, I would have painted them a soft pink if I could have. However, I promised Cecilia that I would paint her fingernails if she pooped in the potty. In fact, I’ve been promising her this for nearly two weeks without any success. But today, she told me she needed to go, and she peed AND pooped on the potty. When she got off the potty, she was very excited and told me she wanted “Purple!!” Unfortunately, the only purple I had was dark, emo purple.
Basically what I’m saying is that my desire to potty train my child outweighs my desire to get your approval as a good mom. Amen.
