AJ wasn't feeling all that great this week and by the time Friday rolled around, we all were ready for a nice, relaxing weekend at home. I'm glad we didn't make any real plans because she ended up coming down with some sniffles yesterday and was pretty sad.
I was really considering going to the Commissary for my groceries because its much, much cheaper than our local grocery store, but luckily decided to just stick close to home. I'm glad I did, because I totally forgot that the Commissary was having a case lot sale this weekend and I heard it was a total madhouse!
After I got home I made the snacks real fast and we got to watch the second half of the Army v. Northern Illinois game while munching on Buffalo Chicken Dip and Lil Smokies in BBQ sauce. It was super yummy!
Today has been the official starting day of potty training, take 50. AJ has just been having so much trouble with it, mostly because of the power struggle. Every time we start to try it I decide she isn't ready and we go back to diapers. Well, this time is starting out a lot like all the other times, but D and I are ready for her to be done with diapers, so we're going to really stick with it. She has the ability to do it, but she doesn't care, so that has been our struggle so far. Not to mention that she wants to do what she wants to do, when she wants to do it. Have I mentioned she's 2?
Cross your fingers for us and if you have any helpful tips or words of advice for us on the whole potty training a strong-willed child, please, pass them along!
This afternoon we're heading across the street for a birthday party. AJ's BFF turned 2 last weekend and today is her party. With potty training and the sniffles, I'm not sure how long we'll last over there, hopefully long enough for some cake!
