When Tuesday is Really Wednesday

We are still waiting for the call from the cath lab at Texas Children’s Hospital to schedule Colman’s next heart cath. I am hoping I will hear from them by the end of the week, so we can get that on our schedule in the next four to six weeks.

On a fun note, we started potty-training Rowan yesterday. I think two-and-a-half is still a little young, especially for a boy, but his teachers at daycare think he’s ready. He’s really interested in the potty.

(Aren’t all boys?)

(I seem to remember having to call a plumber to the house a number of times because Colman had thrown all sorts of stuff down our toilets, including, but not limited to, Hot Wheels cars, washcloths, legos and wooden blocks.)

So I took six changes of clothes to school yesterday and wished Rowan’s teachers the best of luck. When I picked him up at five o’clock, he was in his last pair of dry pants and a diaper. Needless to say, I am not surprised at how that went, although they did say he went on the potty.

Then this morning I dressed Rowan before I sat him down to eat breakfast. Against my better judgment, I put the little guy in underwear. I should have just put him in a diaper and changed him right before I put him in the car to take the boys to school, but I signed this Potty Training Contract in which I promised to only put him in underwear except right before bed time to avoid confusion.

That was a mistake.  He whizzed sometime between eating his cereal and banana. And now he’s wearing Wednesday underwear on Tuesday.  I knew I never should have bought day-of-the-week underwear for him.  My borderline OCD, Type A personality cannot handle that kind of stress.

I’m just going to pretend it’s Wednesday.

  1. I rarely leave a response, but i did a few searching and wound up here When Tuesday is Really Wednesday
    | Crazy Heart Mama. And I do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright.
    Could it be only me or does it look as if like some of these comments appear as if they are left
    by brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are writing at additional sites, I’d like to follow anything
    new you have to post. Could you list of every one of all your
    community sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook
    page or twitter feed?

    • Lol! If only I could control everyone and everything. Mwuhahaha! (Evil, wicked witch laugh.)

      I tweet (sometimes) @crazyheartmama and I have a Facebook page Heather Maloy -Crazy Heart Mama. I’ve also written an op-ed piece for the Houston Chronicle about organ donation that was published on December 24th. I linked it in a post here dated that day. I also wrote a guest blog for Alamo City Moms Blog for CHD Awareness Week and linked that to a blog at this site in the February 7 – 14 time frame. If I write anything else, such as guest posts, I will definitely post them here so my readers can check them out.

      Thanks so much for following and appreciating my sense of humor. You made my day! 😉
