What happens when husbands cook....

This was what came out of the oven for dinner a few nights ago... would you bet on a male being the chef? :) Hopeless.

Anyway I'm feeling a bit better now, just slow with lack of sleep.
I had a horrible day with a whiny, tantrum throwing 2 yr old yesterday and I was determined it wasn't going to happen today.We needed to do something calming together and I had an idea for a new chart to help us with toilet training, as stickers just don't seem to be cutting it anymore (even if they are Thomas the Tank).
Some foam shapes, felt numbers and letters and sticky velcro dots were called for...

And of course buttons to finish it off...


Ta da! We now have a system where he gets to stick a number up every time he goes to the toilet. If he gets all 5 on there in one day it's ice cream after dinner, or go to the park, or a bubble bath or whatever he so desires. So far it's working, number 1 and 2 are already up for today... and best of all no wet pants!
Ah...
