Potty training is suppose to make you free. Free from the extra expense of diapers. But have you ever been in Walmart with three kids when all of a sudden one of them needs to go to the bathroom, NOW! So, you hurry everyone over to the front of the store find out the bathroom is being cleaned. Now we have to walk all the way to the back of the store gather up all of the coats and diaper bag, and as we enter the restroom I announce everyone needs to try to go to the bathroom because we are NOT going again.
A few days ago my son had used the bathroom, and sat there on the pot crying for probably twenty minutes that someone needed to come and wipe him. The reason he cried for so long was because this task is something he knows how to take care of, so Paul nicely tells him Connor you know how, you need to do it. Connor then cries out "But it is too gross!" Hello, like it isn't disgusting for anyone else to have to take care of that.
It has not been uncommon to find yucky stuff all over the toilet. I would much rather have all that nasty stuff confined into one spot stuck to their cute little bottom. I guess the big problem is that the bottom gets bigger and just isn't as cute any more.
As I write I answer the question for myself. Yes, the time will come that you must potty train. It is simply a part of life. But, it would also be helpful to simply realize that potty training does not end when your child learns the function of simply using the bathroom, but must also learn bathroom etiquette. Use the toilet, clean up after you self, and remember to wash!
And in the end you can be happy that you are saving a bit of money simply because you no longer have to buy diaper and wipes, but make sure to keep those disinfectant wipes close by!

Have you ever heard of the Rainbow (Vacuum)?
The rainbow is a very well thought out system that will continually simplify house cleaning. A few things it does specifically.
Vacuums: (Never losing suction because of airflow) it has a water basin rather than a bag or filter. The dirt is trapped in the water, so each time you turn your vacuum on you are not having the bacteria built up in your system coming back into the air. You may no know that a bag or filter is clogged in 15 min. of vacuuming. Most of us do not change the bag every fifteen min. This makes it impossible to get the dirt that settles down at the bottom of our carpets. Water is something we all ready have available, so simply changing the water is cost efficient, and allows us to clean more effectively. Because are able to get more dirt from your carpet and furniture than your typical vacuum you no longer have to dust as often. Cutting down on house cleaning all together.
Sweep and Mop: It has a wet hose that allows you to sweep up crumbs and liquid messes. Once the crumbs are up you can mop. The water can then be sucked up allowing the floor to dry within minutes. The wet hose allows you to clean up any wet mess that you would have no desire to touch such as Vomit.
Air purifier, Disinfect, and add fragrances: The system can be used as an air purifier it can take out unwanted smells such as: burnt food, bad Oder's, and paint fumes. It has a disinfectant that you can add to the water, so while you vacuum or have it on to purify your home it can also disinfect. If you like your home to smell good you can add a fragrance to the water.
It comes with attachments to make dusting and cleaning easy, and a special attachment that allows you to blow. You can use it to inflate objects, or blow glitter out of your computer keyboard put there by your beautiful two year old.
Best of all the company has an amazing opportunity that allows you to earn it.
I am getting close to earning my system, and am currently looking for couples that would be interested in seeing a demo to see if this machine is something you would love to have for your family. If not you maybe you have a friend or family member who would be interested.
Let me know!

All three of the kids did a great job balancing on the balance beam.
This is one of the cousin gift exchange presents. I was really excited to be able to figure out how to make these cute little tutus.
We had a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!
