Do Everything

I heard this song on the radio, and I can definitely relate to the first verse, so I decided to share:
Steven Curtis Chapman- Do Everything

You’re picking up toys on the living room floor
for the 15th time today
Matching up socks and sweeping up lost
Cheerios that got away
You put a baby on your hip and color on your lips
and head out the door
And while I may not know you I bet I know you
Wonder sometimes does it matter at all
We’ll let me remind you it all matters just as long as you
Do everything you do to the glory of the One who made you
Cause He made you to do
Every little thing that you do to bring a smile to His face
And tell the story of grace
With every move that you make
And every little thing you do

Potty Training!

Seriously, how are you supposed to potty train a kid when it's something you've never trained anyone to do before, and you yourself learned like 27 years ago?!

I know everyone has hints, and suggestions, but since no 2 kids are alike none of the hints and suggestions are always going to work.

Ryleigh no longer likes having a wet diaper, and will take hers off if it is wet. But she does not want big girl underwear on. She has no problems peeing or pooping in the potty when we stick her on it, but she won't tell us she needs to go until after the fact. No amount of M&M's or stickers have seemed to help.

I'm pretty sure my kid will still be in diapers at her high school graduation. (Okay, not really. I just like to exaggerate :-)
