Do Everything.....

Its been on of those days. Not a bad day, just another crazy day. I am sorta potty training our 2 year old. Actually he is doing most of it but today I decided to put big boy underwear on him. (if only you could see how cute he is in them haha) He has done pretty good. He peed a little once now but yelled "potty", so I take that as a positive. On the downside, he only napped for 45 minutes... Now my little tornado is running through the house and all I could think about was this song.
Maybe you need to hear it too.

Do Everything
by Stevin Curtis Chapman 

You're picking up toys on the living room floor for the 15th time today
Matching up socks
Sweeping up lost cheerios that got away

You put a baby on your hip
Color on your lips and head out the door

While I may not know you,
I bet I know you
Wonder sometimes, does it matter at all?

Well let me remind you, it all matters just as long
As you do everything you do to the glory of the One who made you,
Cause he made you,
To do
Every little thing that you do
To bring a smile to His face
Tell the story of grace
With every move that you make
And every little thing you do

Oh what a day and its only 1:45 pm and I am so thankful its nap time! It has been a Crazy morning! First, this child woke up early- 6:20 (thats early here now). I also didn't get much sleep last night, for various reasons {my husband snores, and last night I got hit a couple times. He doesn't mean to of course, but its a crazy way to be woken up in the middle of the night. You end up sleeping in a defense position just in case he attacks again.} Anyway, so the morning was a bit rough, but it was ok. I got breakfast made for my boys, and by breakfast, I mean popping a waffle in the toaster- Good Morning guys, enjoy! Mommy is going to go drink her breakfast and clean up a bit. I will say though, I do like the mornings when I actually get to be up when my husband leaves for work. {Aw}

So fast-forward a bit and as the morning is going along, there are old christmas movies playing {frosty the snowman, rudolf - those classics} so I can get started on some more orders. I go back and forth between working on orders and playing with my son. I still need to make sure he doesn't get left out, and when I am sitting at my desk he comes over quite often and wants to help. Since he is only two, its not the safest area for him so I quickly turn his attention elsewhere. He has helped before though... He loves it.
I mean look at that face

So between working and my son it was a busy morning. He is acting fine but was having accidents this morning in his diaper and he never has #2 accidents anymore. We were back and forth to the bathroom 3 times in 20 minutes so I finally just left his pants off and put a pull-up back on him.  We played some more and I kept an eye on him. He still seemed fine and is getting his 2 year old molars so could explain it. We got out some stamps out and had fun with stamps and stickers.  He got a popcorn snack and we enjoyed some time together. After some more clean up, it was time to work and he wanted to watch Wonder Pets. The tv went on and he sat watch and then ran around while I worked. It wasn't more than 10 minutes and I hear what sounds like him pouring out his water ALL over the living room floor....
Only, it wasn't water. He had pulled off his pull-up and was PEEING ON MY FLOOR! As soon as I looked at him he ran for the bathroom, but it was mostly too late. I was very upset, kinda shocked...but wanted to stay somewhat calm because I couldn't tell if he was trying to help by pulling it off so he could go to the bathroom, or if once it was off he just went. We had a little talk and it was time for bed.

This momma needs some peace and quiet, with NO sounds of The Wonder Pets, Yo Gabba Gabba or anything else Nick Jr in the background. Just me and my coffee. May do I LOVE this kid, more than anything, but I am very thankful for nap time and coffee breaks!

I am also thankful that this day that feels like a monday, is actually FRIDAY- Woo Hoo!

Happy friday everyone! Take some time to relax and enjoy some "me" time.
