So, here we are on the third day of chemo and so far I am very happy and pleased. The chemo is affecting me--I am a bit tired. Also, the wonderful anti-nausea patch I was wearing gave me a GIGANTIC headache this afternoon. However, these side effects are an absolute breeze compared to what chemo has been in the past. If I need to hire/ask for hel, I will do so, but for right now I am ok with being on my own.
I have found a Montessori school I am interested in for Captain Adorable, so we will see if perhaps we can get him enrolled there if this gets harder.
I have also decided that I am done with this pussy-footing around as far as potty training goes. I know that he is perfectly capable of going in the potty every time, so I have decided to resort to bribery. He loves watching Little Bear. Each episode is about 7-8 minutes long. I have told him that he may watch one episode for each pee in the potty and three episodes for each poop in the potty. He's not peed in his pants at all today! In fact, he went to the potty by himself twice! However, he has not pooped yet. He didn't poop yesterday either...I'm getting a bit worried about it... It has been really nice to be able to praise him so much today!
I also put into action a plan I hatched a while ago. This afternoon we sat down with a pair of plain white undies and some fabric markers. Together we (but mostly him) drew on/colored on the undies. He will wear them tomorrow. They are really cute, in my opinion. Capt. Obvious got to color on them a bit as well! I am looking forward to him wearing them tomorrow.
Capt. Adorable has been asking when his Oma is coming to visit him, so we're looking forward to having her here in a couple of weeks.
