The Potty Training That Wasn’t

Day 1 April 23

We are insane.

Selah has been ready to potty train for quite some time now.

We delayed because it was simply too cold to let her run around in her skim-pees.

Over the past week, Selah has taken off her diaper and begged to go on the potty.

China is wearing me out

Lately, I’ve felt like I can’t win.

The Chengdu Airport Manager wouldn’t let us get on a plane because Senna was 13 days old instead of 14 days old.

Senna and Mommy grabbed a one hour nap too.

That early morning + afternoon sleep made all the difference in my day… and

I’m on day 5 sleep deprivation.

Schäfer and Sianna went to school. Hubs fixed the toilet.

The dryer belt broke.

Mt. laundry has returned.

It is very difficult to sit and nurse when there is so much that needs to be done.
