I think we all know by now, sleep deprivation makes me do dumb things.
Oh, you didn't know that? Well, welcome to Still Seeking Sanity. You must be new here. Watch out, don't step in that puddle on the floor over there. We're potty training, and, well, you never know.
Today I have errands to run. And I'm sleep deprived. This time, it's not because of the kids, though, it's because I suddenly remembered at ten thirty last night that I needed to make potato salad for thirty people for our Teacher Appreciation week luncheon today.
Ten pounds of potatoes takes a while, so I got to bed late. I know, it's my fault, but I'm still planning on blaming the lack of sleep for the completely idiotic thing that I am about to do.
We are potty training the twins.
And I have to run errands.
So I an going to take two not-quite-potty trained boys out in public in big boy undies.
Because, well, we all know I am stupid.
The good news is, either it's going to go really well, making me feel like a wonderful mother who has finally taught her boys to pee in the potty, or we will have a totally hilariously awesome story to share on the blog later.
I'm betting we will all have a good laugh at my expense.
Which way do you think it's going to go?
We're home. And the boys are still wearing the same pants we went out in. It was a rip-roaring success!!
I did learn, however, that when you let one child use the toilet first, don't let that child start washing their hands before the other kids have gone potty, or the sound of the water running will cause the third child to "leak a little". I can't say that Wolverine came out of the experience totally dry, but Ben's pants stayed dry and that's what counts. Oh, and I also learned to pack plastic baggies. It doesn't matter how many paper towels you wrap wet Wolverine undies in, it's still gross to put them in your purse.
I feel like a million bucks right now. I bet I could do just about anything I wanted to, I'm flying that high on life. This is awesome.
I need a nap.
