Toddlers and poop.

Y’all . I think Nate, Samuel & I will be spending the day tomorrow in the bathroom. Why, you ask??!!! I’ll post today’s shenanigans below:

I changed his diaper this morning, then he went to go put on his clothes for the day.
He looked “so nice”, we told him. So, we go visit a church member & then go to the store.

All of a sudden Tom sees a puddle at Nate’s feet, “Ashlee! Nate doesn’t have on a diaper!” He said, quietly. 😳 I said, “do what!!?? I put one on him before he put his pants on!”
Well, apparently Nate took his diaper off this morning and decided to wear underwear. (We will now be checking to see what undergarments Nate has on before leaving the house, lesson learned.)
So, I took Nate to the bathroom, put a diaper on him & got him a pair of shorts, he needed a new pair anyway.

Fast forward to this evening at home.
He kept undressing, diaper and all. We’d put it back on, he’d end up naked. This went on for a couple hours probably. 😳 fast forward to bedtime. We’re heading out of the living room and Nate stops to pick up a balled up hand towel. “There’s poopy in it.”, He says very matter-of-factly. “What?!”, I said. Again, Nate says “There’s poopy in it.” No big deal, 😳😳😳😳😳😳. At this point we’re just flabbergasted, really. “Son, did you poop in that towel????”, tom asked. (I had to leave the room for laughing, and to throw the towel away – because there was indeed poop in it.) “No, I not poopy in it” said Nate. So, tom asked again, “Nate, did you poop on that towel??” “No” said Nate. “Well, what happened then?” Asked Tom. (He had to ask that one a few times … & how’d poop get in the towel?)
Nate finally points to the floor ” I I I I poopy on da floor …. first. And pooot it in da towel.” 😳😳😳💩💩💩💩

There you have it folks, tomorrow this kid will be king of the throne. We will read books, play games, etc … But by golly, he’s going to sit on that toilet! 😂💩🚽

Mamas, how’d you potty train a child who simply doesn’t care ? I’ll assume the one who doesn’t care about using the toilet was also your strong-willed child as well.

This is my precious middle child (the first one is from this morning, in his outfit he was so proud of picking out and putting on by himself! The second was the other day, not even sure that he was aware of what he was crying over at that point, but his eyes looked so blue, so I had to take his picture.)


He does have a super sweet side too, can’t leave that out 😉 Here are our boys with my (Ashlee) mom, “Gaga”, when she came to visit for the weekend!

When you need help with your bible study …

Word to the wise (you think I would’ve learned by now….) if you want help on your bible study, simply leave it open on the couch with the pen nearby & have to step out of the room for something ….. your 2 yr old will be sure to assist! 🙂 thankful for colored ink … i just switched pens for this session. (At least my bible was closed while i was out of the room, and he only marked a little on the cover)

Can I be honest? There was a time when I would have been LIVID. I mean, like I wouldve fussed at Nate, yelled at him, attempted to put him in time-out, maybe even popped his behind – I am so thankful that God is constantly working on my heart – to be more like His. Yeah, there will be moments when I’m sure I will lose my cool; I am only human. But today, I am thankful He let me see it as He does – my child simply saw an open book and a pen and wanted to draw mommy a picture.



It’s a Toy Story-ific Day

Buzz & Woody have been MIA ALL WEEK! There have been meltdowns at every nap and bedtime, & some just out of the blue. It’s been a hard week for our Isaac! His friends were MISSING! (I had Jesse hidden for Christmas.) Hubby found a quick solution to ease Isaac’s sorrows, we told him Buzz & Woody were on a special mission to save Jesse – & it worked!
So, this morning Isaac & I found them!!!! Under a pile of toys! And so, guess who they “found” – JESSE!
Now, I have one HAPPY boy!!!
{if only Nate’s teeth would come in so I could have TWO happy happy happy boys!}





still here

I promise I didn’t abandon you fellow bloggers & my few readers 🙂

It’s been a super busy week and I’ve thought of you often, very often. I just had other priorities that came first!

I have soooo many topics to blog about – so I’m going to spread them out instead of bombarding you in one day 🙂

My mommy came to visit last week (through Wednesday) we went through baby clothes and turned the playroom into a preschool setting 🙂 then aunt Lucy (my MIL’s sister) came Thursday – Saturday – it was so nice to catch up! 🙂

Also, my little artist painted 4 canvases for his new preschool room 🙂

I can’t wait to share with you more about my week and the topics God has laid upon my heart to share with you!!!
