On The Phone All Day

Sigh, sigh, sigh. Well, as is quite common, we're experiencing some unexpected unhappiness here at the last minute before the closing on the new house. Blah. I am not going to go into the details, but Captain Obvious has spent days trying to resolve some issues and today I spent all day on the phone (except for about an hour in which I sifted clay) also trying to resolve the issues. Fingers crossed! We might just work everything out...but I wouldn't be at all surprised if it went the other way...


In other news, this afternoon an interesting thing happened. Captain Adorable left the building site to walk up the hill to the house because he needed to poop. He did not tell anyone where he was going--just hiked himself u the hill, went in the house, and did a poop...much to the surprise of his Opa, who was on a business call at the time he realised what was going on. Opa quickly asked if he could call the person back and helped Captain Adorable clean up (he had already dumped the potty, just needed to be wiped!). I arrived (having missed my son down at the building site) just as the resolution was occurring. I was very surprised! And proud! That my not-quite-three year old walked all the way up the hill to do a poop in the potty. I guess I'm going to have to take that thing to Costa Rica. ;)

Tomorrow we drive back to Maryland. Hopefully on Friday we will close on the new house. Keep your fingers crossed for us.

Fingers and toes crossed that everything goes well and you'll be enjoying your new home soon.

Love, Ms. Breadwinner.

oh... I can just see this little boy, climbing back up to the house, concentrating. This is a milestone moment :-)
Was wondering if you take a travel potty when you go away, but I can imagine those ones with bags probably don't feel very nice.

I will cross my fingers for you about the house. If it;s right, it will work. You should be feeling strong again after time with your parents in the bush ;-)

Amina--I do indeed have a travel potty and he poops in it as well, but the red potty is the absolute favorite. I was planning to take just the travel potty but now that I understand the lengths to which Capt. Adorable will go to poop in it, I think maybe it is important enough to take along!
