Hodge podge

** So... I changed my background and whatnot (That's for you Nobo.) What do y'all think??

** Y'all know I am shamefully a Rock Of Love fan right? S and I are sisters of skank and watch the show. This season it all takes place on tour with Bret Michaels. I watched the premiere and you know what? They may have met my limit of skank for the season in the very 1st episode. I told S that I think I got a blackeye from all the 3-D boobs. Thankfully other shows are back like my beloved "24" so I may be able to pull my eyes away from the ROL train wreck. I think.

** Liv successfully wore panties to Alec's basketball game on Saturday and to church on Sunday if you don't count her pooping her pants at church. :P Any ideas with getting her to do it in the toilet?? She's got the pee down, just not the #2.

** Well, I was totally against going back on Atkins, but I have not budged a pound since mid-November. I have been working out at least 5 times a week for an hour each time, toning with weights 2x week, taking weight loss products and trying not to eat too horribly and the weight is all still there. And then some. What is up with that? I keep telling myself I've built muscle which is heavier and any day now my thighs and butt will just start melting off. But I'm tired of waiting for that day so I am doing what I know has worked for me in the past. As much as I hate it. I'll letcha know how it goes.

** Remember the Jones family who are expecting quintuplets? She will probably deliver any day now. She's been in the hospital for a couple of days and will stay til she delivers. They made it past their 1st goal of 28 weeks. Now she is about 29.5 weeks. They would love to make it 32 but it's probably not gonna happen. Please pray for their family. Pray for Casey to feel comfort- she is miserable right now. Pray for the babies to be healthy when they come.

** Livie will be 3 on the 25th (Millie's bday). She informed me she would love a "Balloon Birthday" party. So... we're gonna have balloons all over even though she probably has no clue what she was talking about when she said that.

** In July we are taking a family vacation to Florida. I am like already counting down the days. I CAN NOT wait!! I think I probably daydream about hanging out of a beach more than my surfer hubby. (Probably because he gets to run off to Cali and Hawaii on a whim...;)

And... that's all I've got. Sorry this is lame.

You could try taking away a favorite toy every time she poops in her pants. You keep them, and she can earn one back for each time she goes on the toilet. It worked for both of my nephews. Good luck.

Millie said...

Excuse me? Livie and me sharing a birthday is NOT lame.

I saw the pics of the quints' parents on your FB... wow. She looks absolutely wonderful still. No pregnancy face or anything. Hoping the babies will all be in great shape!

How fun, planning a vacation! We're thinking of D-land next year sometime... our kids have no idea. We want to surprise them. :)

Millie said...

GM's tip sounds really useful. I wish I'd known about it when I was potty-training mine.

Lauren said...

I LOVE the new layout and header! Girl...you are hawt!

Yay for Florida vaca!

Mel said...

I like the new look. I shouldn't say anything because you have more experience toileting than I do but I would be careful not to turn it into a negative experience for Liv. I totally messed things up with one of my boys and he still (age 9) has problems (not his fault) because he would hold it until it stretched out the bowel which in turn causes serious long-term problems. Besides, she's only two. Your doing great. Don't sweat it.

chellie said...

Wow, quints. crazy!!

Florida sounds fun! yay for vacations!

Tori :) said...

GM- That may work. She runs to the toilet after she does it so she's gettin there.

Millie- Of course you and Livie having the same birthday is not lame news to report. What was I thinking?!?

Lauren- Thanks Lauren. I can't wait for Florida. 6 more months haha!

Mel- Alec had the same problem. (Not bc of potty training, but when I got divorced he got all screwy.) So I totally understand that. She's only been training for a week so I'm sure she'll get it eventually.

Chellie- Yep FIVE babies. It's amazing.

No Cool Story said...

Ok firstly (thanks Noboo) do not call this post lame. My Twin is not lame, ever.

2nd, "S and I are sisters of skank" made me get LOL/teary/LOL, something like that. My boyfriend Joel told me all I need it to know about the supah skakified show. Looks like a winner.

I like the new colors and super mega Torific banner.

Working out (Join Wynne and myself on this), check it out: workout 6x a week, 2 hours 3x a week, the rest a minimum of 1, doing kick boxing (2x) and boot camp (2x), 30 elliptical and the dumb treadmill on 6...Since September.
Ask me how much weight I have lost.

Actually don't becuase I don't know either. After I weighed my self back in October I decided I was going to stop checking.
BAH!

No Cool Story said...

On the plus side I can kick and strech and kick.

On the down side my comment came out waaaay to long.
:( sorry :(

No Cool Story said...

Ok, one more thing. OOOH FLORIDA!!
I might be there in July also ;)

okbai.

Klin said...

I'm thinking a balloon party sounds fun and cheap. That would be my kind of party.

Livie will figure it out. It seems like forever when you go through it. I thought AJ would never get it, but when I looked back it was only 3 months.

I'm going over to the Jones blog now. You got me hooked.

Klin said...

Oh yeah. Like the new look. It's fun. I love your picture up top. You rock.

Methodical wormer said...

BL had privacy issues with going poo so when I knew he had to go I'd put him in the bathroom w/o pants on and hoped he'd put it where it needed to go. He didn't like it too much at first but switching to the big potty helped a lot. Good luck!

Liam's Mom said...

Very cool blog design! Great job!

I am due to start the "3 day" potty training with Liam on the 17th. I will let you know how the poop part goes. If there is success, I will certainly pass on the tactics.

Yvonne said...

I LOVE the new look.

Hooray for family vacations--they are the best.

A balloon birthday party would be fun

Karina said...

Woohoo! Florida!! Where in Florida? I'm in Tampa.

Tori, thank you sooo soooo much for your gift to Mariah yesterday! You are such a sweetheart! Thank you for thinking of her.

I love the new look. You're so silly and fun loving!

Hugs to you!

Stacey said...

I love the new look!

Your posts are nevah lame!

5 babies = WOW! I will keep them in my prayers.

Love the sisters of skank thing..another meaning for S.O.S.

Yay for the vacay! I would love to take the kids to the beach some time. The hubs went to Florida last year...I don't think I'll ever get there.
We'll be lucky if we have enough money for Lagoon or Seven Peaks this year.

Stacey said...

Sorry that I ended my post on a "woe is me" note. I should count my blessings and not be all pouty.

MommyJ said...

Love the new look... hate potty training.

Physcokity said...

LOVE your kickace banner! :D It's hard core. In other news this post isn't lame it's informative. If I had a rockin' family vacation to look forward too I'd be pumped as well.

AND to make a long commenter longer. I used to be on teh same workout schedule as NCS 2-1-2 workout two hours in the morning one day and then one then two again. Not sure that makes much sense, but you can ask me about it later if you want.

Physcokity said...

*comment I meant comment

S said...

I think as a whole we have created a monster just one year ago you were MS Brady:) what the heck!

Sista in skank, girl I can't hardly take it this time around. Which I am proud to say......I must still have a limit!

"Here Bret, I hope you keep me around long enough to find out where it goes" "Wahhhahhhahh I just wanna get married to bret and have a family waaahhhahawah"

IF NCS is going and You are going then I must go! Wait that didn't work last year and this year is NOT looking any better:)

Great post!

S said...

Love the new header btw LOOOOOOOOOOOVE it!

S said...

Calorie count or cut out sugar 100% and the lbs will fly off of you!

S said...

Please whatever you do not even need to have lbs flying what am I saying! You look marvolous darling and now you are tough to boot!

S said...

K I am done cuz I am on a blog strike to get some things done around here and I can honestly say I haven't gotten anything done today. Not even breakfast:0 I think this computer has powers!

Kimberly said...

I really like the new look too! It rox. With my kids it was all about really celebrating when they pooped in the potty. Like I would get toys at the dollar store each time they would poop in the potty we would just about have a poop party - make it a big celebration... then once they do it a few times they "get it" and don't want to go in their dipe anymore...
