mom-mode #198 – on a potty training perspective
July 3, 2012 § 6 Comments
I had some posts lined up about potty training and mommyhood, but due to being in the throws of potty training, not much else got done.
I will write more about the lojistics of it all soon. But let me just say it hasn’t been an easy ride.
After a few slightly more successful days, today we hit a bump on the road. After his nap things got smoother, but I still couldn’t shake off the feeling of failure and frustration.
Just as I was about to go into a corner and throw a pity party for myself, God granted me a little perspective.
I heard about a friend of a friend’s little boy, not much older than mine, being very sick in the hospital. So sick he wasn’t even going to the bathroom on his own. So as I did another load of tiny Thomas underwear laundry, I considered myself blessed. Yes, it is hard, but he is getting it. And most of all, he’s healthy. He is working so hard at it actually.
So tomorrow we wake up and start it all up again, only this time this mama will make sure to keep her mind in the right perspective.
So thankful for this little face:
