RTT: Potties, babies, and bodies
*I have an announcement to make:
Miles William has peed in the potty. Just once, and just a little bit, but he did it by request and intentionally and once he was done he was running around shouting, "I DID IT! I DID IT!" AND he did it again this morning. I was so proud. I'm pretty sure I now know how the parents of Olympic athletes feel as they watch their children compete.
All that said, he's not really ready for potty training. He just sits on it until he goes. He does not have the bladder control yet, but I'm glad he's interested and trying.
*I destroyed five minute intervals this weekend. On to eight minute intervals. Oh, and I'm participating in my first 5K this weekend. I won't be able to run the whole thing, but I'm am excited about my first race. Goal: not to come in last.
*Last night I dreamed that I had a baby girl and that I named her Mallory Anne. Or rather Nelson named her Mallory Anne and I was a little annoyed because 1) My sister's step-daughter has a daughter named Mallory so while that is a lovely name, we see her often enough that we could never use the same name, and 2) "Anne" is also a lovely name, but my mom is Ann with no "e" and why the heck would we give our baby the middle name "Anne" and NOT "Ann?" Also in the dream I was frantic because we seemed to own no ridiculously cute hair clips for her very short hair (it was a little baby pixie cut) and if I had a little girl there would BE ridiculously cute hair clips. Gobs of them.
* I read this great article about women and body image and weight shame. You should read it, and you should look at all the photos of the beautiful women who shared their real, actual weight. It's eye opening, and it is really empowering.
*My birthday is a week from today. A week! Apparently Oscar has a big idea for my gift. I'm thinking light saber wielding, superhero themed, monster truck.
*I am wearing my very skinniest jeans today. And they look awesome. I look awesome. I feel awesome.
