Today started off well for me. I did the laundry, I did the dishes, I had a clean house and baked a batch of brownies that now I’m addicted to eating all by myself. Oh how I love anything with chocolate, I never should have made the brownies. They are so good, Ghirardelli from Costco.
Then we preceded to potty training as we are trying to work on really hard this week and my daughter came up stairs and said I went poo poo. Oh man, I was in the process of taking off her Pull Ups and then I found that no she had not. So we went into the bathroom and she went on the potty. This was a wonderful day. She then went potty on the potty again, but then we had to accidents and needed new clothes. Then for the rest of the day any time I mentioned potty she threw a big huge fit. She was rolling around on the floor for 20 minutes. I know because I set the timer for when it was time to try to go pp again.

Do you ever think that the things we write about your children will come to haunt them when they go to school? I write a lot about my kids, but I try to only post happy photos. I’d hate to scare/embarrass my children too much, you know!
The bed company Select Comfort has been sending me sleep tips and I asked them if I could give one of their beds away. They were kind enough to say, well, your stats are good but not quite good enough. I’m actually missing a zero at the end of the amount of unique visitors they want a site to have every month. So instead of 25,000 they want 250,000. WOW, I’m out of their league but I’m going to pitch something to them anyways. The worst they can do is say no. 😉 I don’t hear no very often and I’ve always wondered why? I finally found a site where I can compare my stats to other sites and WOW, i’m in shock of where I’m standing. People do read me!!!
Wait, where are those sleep tips. Here they are:
Nine out of 10 couples do not agree on mattress firmness. In fact, men usually prefer a more firm mattress than women, which can lead to one very happy partner and one sleep deprived partner. Below is a way to overcome mattress firmness issues for a better night’s rest for you and your partner.
According to Sleep Expert and Select Comfort’s Director of Sleep Innovation and Clinical Research, Pete Bils, your bed is the most important piece of furniture in the bedroom and has the greatest impact on the quality of sleep you get each night. If you prefer a softer mattress and your partner requires a firm mattress, consider a bed that allows each of you to choose your own firmness preference for your side of the bed.
