Too much Fluid for One Morning

Its day two for Joseph and potty training. So far, nothing disastrous. We only went through eight pairs of underwear yesterday. But like I said, just little things, nothing bad.
Today started out just fine. However, I wasn't feeling too great. The new vitamins my doctor gave me makes me very nauseous, which consequently causes headaches. So, I decided to sit for a minute. Something told me I should take Joseph to the bathroom first but, hey, I was already lounging, no point getting up again if he wasn't going to go, so I thought I would wait a few more minutes. About 5.7 seconds after I shut my eyes I hear the sound of splashing liquid against the carpet. My eyes fly open and there is Joseph, bent over in an arch, hands and head on the floor, watching his homemade waterfall bring... joy and happiness to the living room.
I leap off the couch, whisk Joseph into the bathroom, strip him down and toss him into the tub. After turning the water on for him, I go back out and start scrubbing away at the carpet. I had barely started cleaning up the artistic endeavors of my son when Savannah suddenly yells, "Mommy! Jacob is in the bathtub!"
Once again, I leap up and race to the bathroom. Sure enough...


As I felt my temperature rise, my breathing increase, and my fists clench, it suddenly occurred to me that this should actually be funny! I stared at him for a second, then stormed down the hallway and grabbed that camera. By the time I took the photos, I was actually smiling. I remember being a kid, and well, a teenager too, and finding it really fun to get all wet or go swimming while in my clothes. So, I let Jacob have his moment, for about 10 more seconds, before removing his newly washed, yet now need to be washed again clothes.
Perhaps its a good thing we still live in an apartment. The more kids we get potty trained before moving into a house, the better!

I totally agree with the renting thing. Might as well ruin the thing you won't have for much longer instead of the finer things down the road.

Way to implement Elder Wirthlin's counsel to laugh!

TRUST me, Sarah...TOILET training is SO MUCH EASIER...than teaching your children to DRIVE!!! Noticed I DID turn WHITE-HAIRED when the DRIVING-TRAINING started...NOT during TOILET TRAINING...(smile) I just noticed something in the word...TOILET..."TOIL"ET...(smile)

Isaac climbed into the tub right after I had put on his jammies! I didn't drain the tub and he ran back in and got right back in! AAHAHH Silly boys

Way to be optimistic!

--bytheway, my prenatals always make me nauseous too and the doctor suggested I take them right before bed--helps a ton because by the time any nausea has the chance to creep in, I'm hopefully asleep.
