So Kirtis and I took a "day off" together and it was heaven!
He leaves for China for ten days on Wednesday, so it was perfect timing.
He had friday off work, and his mom is in town visiting, so she babysat while we went to the temple, shopping, movies, lunch, dinner etc. etc.! It was so nice to do grown-up stuff and not worry about Jackson running around, getting lost, getting hit by a car, or touching and breaking things when we are out and about.
I just feel so relaxed and ready to take on the next couple of weeks while Kirtis is gone.
As for Potty training, it is down the tube for the moment. Jackson is such a strong willed little guy right now, that we just have too many battles. Just getting dressed in the morning is such a fighting-screaming-kicking ordeal, that I can't bring one more fight between the two of us! Plus I can't for the moment handle the thought of any more uncontained poo. Ah, but sometimes when I think I'd like to just trade him in for a 4 year old, he'll sing me a song and put his little arms around my neck and smack a big one right on my lips and say I wuv-oo mommy, and then I think this whole mommy thing is not half bad.
