    The Pee Files #5 –

    A good few weeks have passed since I last wrote… As most of you know, our house is in utter chaos at the moment! We left the US on June 8th, and our container of furniture and household items only arrived 4 days ago. Adding to our craziness is the fact that my husband (darling of note!) decided to get the kids a puppy… OK, she is adorable, I have to admit, but it’s like having another baby in the house (like I need that:) ). And to top it all off, I decided to start potty training my almost 3 yo. Don’t ask me why? I should be a…

    The Pee Files

    Why is it that boys just cannot pee straight? We have two little guys, and I can tell you from experience… no amount of “training” helps. Yes, I know using the word ‘training’ might make it sound like we think they’re puppies, but that’s exactly what it is – ‘training’. Day after day we keep hoping they’ll stay focused on the task at hand and just aim straight, but still, no progress… How long will we have to wait!? I guess until they’re teenagers, no wait… GROWN MEN! Oh Lord Help ME! I bet they’re going to be absolutely mortified one day; when they realize I shared this story, but…
