I hope my child looks back on today, and remembers a Mum who had time to play
There will be years for cleaning and cooking, but children grow up when we are not looking
Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow, cause babies grow fast, much to our sorrow
So settle down cobwebs, dust go to sleep, I'm cuddling my baby, and babies don't keep

"No thanks on the diaper mom, I'll use the potty"

Ok, no my kid didn't say that. I mean, I hear it happens, but I'm pretty sure June Bug wasn't going to announce that anytime soon. But I was ready and let's face it, toddlers are smart. Too smart, really, so why not take advantage?

Day 1: It was so crazy and exhausting I barely remember the events or how I got to bed. And no, there was no booze involved, though it might have made the day less painfully wearing. 

Day 2:  OMG success, he's learned the potty is NOT going to swallow him whole!!!
In a 12mos swimsuit, b/c sans diaper his skinny
booty can't hold up a 2T, I'm not at all envious

Day 3:  By golly I think he's got it

Day 4-5:  My kid's a rockstar, seriously, he must be a genius, right?

Day 6-7:  My kid is 2 and is going to remind he's 2, aka "I've never seen a potty in my life before...no pee mama, that's agua"  ::cries...sobs..cries some more::

Day 8-9:  Put the cork back in the bottle, then get June Bug back on track

Day 10 and on:  OMG the potty just became the coolest thing in the world and mom can leave the room with zero incident.  Heck, mom can even go grocery shopping and run errands and have play dates. 

Life has returned to normal, but without diapers; well as normal as life is with two kids. 
Now I need like 2 weeks of sleep to make up for these past few weeks of chaos.
