Kids and The College Parent

School has started again, both of us parents are getting back into the swing of things. Our daughter is still not in day care, and probably will not be by the end of the year at the rate we are going right now. I forgot how exhausting taking a full course load, taking care of our daughter, cooking, cleaning, and all the menial tasks can be. In addition, financial aid is not as strong this year. Books cost a small fortune on top of all other bills so it may be a skimpy 6 months ahead. Since it has been a while since the last post, our current kid situation is the following:

Potty Training:
Daughter is so adamant about not potty training right now, she has gone from telling us when she has used the bathroom on herself to loudly replying "Nooo" every time we ask her if she peed or poo'd.

Sleeping through the night without a pacifier:
Remarkably well. We let her watch a movie as she's going to sleep, and when it's over one of us kiss her goodnight, turn the lights out, and that's that. Such a good girl :)
