I have potty trained my youngest!!! Thank GAWD thats over!!!!

This is a major milestone for me.

My youngest and LAST child is potty trained!!!

For those of you with children you know what that means and for those of you without them- imagine the joy of not having to deal with doo doo anymore. Not having to smell somebody elses funk is like heaven, even if that someone is your own child.

I have been changing dookie diapers for almost 8 years strait and God knows I have been tired of it.

Now its time for me to congratulate myself by donating the leftover diapers to charity.

"I love you so much Mom!"

I was laying on the couch dozing off, when my two year old crawled up on me and hugged my neck and said to me, "I love you so much Mom!"

I was like, AAAAAAAAWWWWWW!!!!

My heart melted.

It made me feel all warm and tingly inside to hear her say that.

It makes all the hardships of parenting worthwhile when you get such sweet rewards as that!

Sweet Georgia Brown by Cheryl Robinson

I read this book a week or so ago and it was......ok at best.

The synopsis of this book is about a woman who stands by her man, who wants to go into stand up comedy. They start out dirt poor and living with his parents along with their 2 boys. I dont want to give the story away if you decide to read it but the story line was just too predictable and for some reason I didnt like the main character even though she was a lovable person. I saw her as a weak woman.

I always make it a point to read 50 pages into a book and if its ok keep going, but if its boring me to tears I put it down.

The beginning was pretty good, but as it went along the story went down hill. It has over 300 pages in it but by page 150 I was already not feeling it. Since I had already invested that much in the book I made myself finish it. I would not suggest this book to anyone. I give it 2 out of 5 stars.
