Failures and Triumphs

I was potty training Molly this weekend, we gave it a great effort and will keep going but let's just say it was not a success (and that eating Molly poop makes Max barf).

BUT, as easy as it would be to wallow at home, just the 2 of us for 5 days without cooking or cleaning - I didn't do that (well maybe yesterday I did, but not today)!

Today's Menu:
Breakfast: Eggs with Dill and Pepper scrambled

Lunch: Whole wheat tortillas with Low Fast Vidalia Onion Dressing, chicken, lettuce, tomatoes, and cucumbers (served with Pirates Booty and Apple)

Dinner: Marinated Flank Steak, new red potatoes with rosemary, sauteed mushrooms and cheesy rolls

Dessert: Molly and I are making cookie icing sandwiches.

Tomorrow: Shrimp, penne, asparagus

Tuesday: Spaghetti and Meatballs with Caesar salad

Wednesday: Bertolli Froze Meal (9 minutes to make)

Thursday: Pizza Night

Friday: Burgers and Sweet Potato Fries and Green Beans

Besides meal planning, cooking, some baking, I also put together a Consignment pile of clothes and cleaned out my closet for the fall! I may start on Aubrey's closet when Molly goes down for a nap! Did I mention the 17 loads of laundry? That is how many you have to do when your child pees on everything, everywhere, all day.

I do have to say that a few days of just me and Molly is quite eye opening - she is the sweetest cuddliest kid when she isn't trying to keep up with her sister and follow her everywhere!

Oh, and in order to complete the randomness that is this post... I won a pair of pink Uggs for Aubrey on ebay last night... 40 bucks baby!

LOVE the picture of Molly. My mouth is watering at your menu. Missed you guys last night!

Am I the only one who was a little thrown off by the eggs with dill? Guess we don't eat much dill around here.

It amazes me how different my kids are when their sibling is not around!

I got my Old Bay yesterday! Yaaaaa!!! Thank you!

Don't give up on Molly, she'll catch on soon. We went cold turkey after we figured our daughter had adhesions. The she had to wear panties and she jsut didn't like wet or dirty panties. It works. Needless to say we don't believe in pull-up. They're just a way for Pampers to prolong the profit.

Good menu planning! I"m totally impressed.

Isn't it amazing how different kids can be when you take their sibling out of the picture for a bit? It's always nice to be able to have one on one time with each child :)
