New Blog Button and Potty Training Cry For Help

What do you guys think?  It’s one of my favorite pictures with my coconut.  It’s blown up a little on this post, so please put the resolution aside.

If you want to blog swap with me feel free to grab a badge from my left sidebar, and let me know so I can do the same :)

As soon as we settled back into a routine, after our trip to WA, I decided to potty train the coconut.  It is hands down the hardest thing I have done as a parent.  I’ve been trying to get him interested since the summer.  I got to the point where I said no more diapers and made him wear underwear.  I swear I went through two packages of underwear a day. Underwear that was soaked in urine or pooped in like a diaper.  Ugh.  I was finally able to get my son excited to go potty and with his own free will.  He pees sitting down and aims while standing like a pro.  He tells me he has to go potty, and hasn’t had a wet diaper in almost a week.  However, and this is a big however, he will NOT drop the kids off at the pool.  Mama is sick of cleaning up poopy underwear.  Today I started putting him in PullUps.  Luckily, he’s staying on track and keeping them dry…except when he drops the deuce.  That’s where you readers who have potty training experience come in.  I NEED HELP!  Any tips on getting a boy to poop?

On a completely random side note: I recently learned I only like extra bold, dark roast coffee unless it happens to contain espresso.  The flavor is just so much better and less watered down.  I guess I like it strong!   What’s your favorite coffee?
