I have found it very hard to train Cougar to close the bathroom door behind him when he's done. He just can't be bothered with something as time consuming as shutting a door! So I find myself yelling "Phoenix! No! No toilets!" quite frequently while running to try and stop him before he gets his hands in the water. It came as a surprise today when roles were reversed.
I was scrubbing the toilet. (I know, Yay for me!) When in toddles Phoenix. He looks at me. He looks at the toilet. He looks back at me and shakes his head in a very silent, but understandable "Mommy, no, no, no." Then wobbly he turns around and heads back out of the bathroom.
Cougar was watching some obnoxious commercial and we had the following conversation.
Cougar: "Why do they try to get us to buy their christmas stuff?"
Me: "Because they'll make lots of money if they can get people to buy their junk."
Cougar: "Mom! It's not junk. If it was junk it would have dirt on it."
I can't tell you how many different times he's quoted commercials at me. He watches Qubo and they tend to have the infomercial type commercials. He's told me all about Snuggies, Hollywood Bumpits and the Perfect Brownie Pan. If you no idea what I just said then, lucky you. Time to turn off the TV and read some books. Books never have commercial interruptions. :)
I got married to Mark Davis in January of 2004 became a mommy in May of 2005. I stay at home and raise our sweet (most of the time) son Cougar. I am patiently awaiting the arrival of our second bundle of joy. (Due in October)
I really don't have very many links to everyone else's blogs, because I don't know that many. If you'll send me an email I'll be sure to include yours!! firstname.lastname@example.org
This is a system I wholeheartedly believe in! It is slowly, but surely changing my life. I have never been a good housekeeper and am perpetually unorganized, but my kitchen and living room have been pretty much spotless for almost a month (and it's spreading to the rest of the house). Check out what she says, try it, all of it and see what happens in your home.
