Wow, without the toilet training thing dominating my life, I don't know what to blog about anymore.
It's so crazy. A friend had told me that once your child is toilet trained, "it's a whole new world". She's totally right! It's so nice not having to lug a diaper bag everywhere now. Also, I have all this disposable income now that I don't have to drop a ton of money on diapers and wipes. Vic and I saw two movies - in the theater, mind you - in the span of two weeks shortly after Nico was potty trained. Yahoo! Let the good times roll!
Beyond the toilet-training front, Nico is doing really well. Now that he has moved up to the toilet-trained kids' class at preschool, he is learning a ton. In his new class, they already do science experiments! They made a volcano a few weeks ago. And it was really cool during Black History Month when Nico showed me a photo of a baseball player and said, "That's Jackie Robinson."
As for me, I'm feeling better about myself as a parent right now. For a while, especially last semester when Vic was working and taking a full load of graduate classes, I was perpetually overwhelmed and stressed out. This semester has been a lot better. Then again, Vic is on spring break, so things might get crazy again starting next week. We'll see!
