POTTY TRAINING DRIVES MOM TO OD ON DING DONGS!

Okay, so I wasn't totally honest about the death by DING DONGS... BUT this potty training thing has got me about ready to be that mom. Yes, I'm thankful they are out of diapers but with the MADNESS of potty training 4 little ones, it could make a mom desperate enough do almost anything to include submitting to the box of Ding Dongs calling from the hidden spot up in the MOMMY ONLY area of the highest cabinet.

I have consciously noticed that I've spent a crap load (crap load-get it?) of time in the bathroom lately. But yesterday I felt like I should just do school, laundry and move my pillow and blankie into the crapper and just work from there. I kept a tally of my time spent in there yesterday-OVER 30 times & almost 2 1/2 hours total-I plopped those 4 babes on the pot, wiped those little hineys and washed those darling little paws UGH! The main problem is PEER PRESSURE! When one of those little boogers has to go, they all just drop their drawers like it's the coolest new idea on the block! Then..the peer pressure even trickles down to me and before you know it I'm on the doggone pot too!

We have a "waiting line" outside the potty and as you can see, it's usually a full line!


I have shared & confessed my 2 a day "Ding Dong DIET" with people closest to me so I figured I would share it with my closest blog friends too. I normally eat 2 a night (after the kids are SOUNDLY sleeping-I ain't sharin' my Dongs peeps) and after the first one, my nerves IMMEDIATELY CALM! The last couple of days spent in the privy I have been tempted to go for 3 and I'm proud of me that I didn't fall into temptation-yay me. So, for all you moms out there who ate Ding Dongs in your childhood....Ding Dongs are making a come back!! I've eaten 2 a day since October and darn it, it makes me feel so good inside! What's worse eating Ding Dongs every day or being a ding dong? Okay so both apply to me! Seems the more kids I have the ding dongier I get! Glad I got that off my chest. Goodnight!

very funny! I am not a Ding Dong eater anymore... but I do bake a cake just about every other day and tend to down a nice piece after the kids go to bed with either some coffee or a tall glass of milk. YUM! Good to know I'm not alone....

PS How old are all of the kiddies you are potty training? I am re-starting my twins next week....

OK that was funny!

I just got done with potty training one and it was a fun three months. One day Joshua who was 2.5 said no more diapers. Then the next month we went potty I am telling you like 50 times each day. I finally was like no more little man. You go alone. And he stopped going so much - he was having a good ole time having Mommy all to himself.

No ding dong here - can't even imagine eating all of those unreal ingredients. We bake cookies and brownies that call my name! Not alone in that one at all.

Hugs and blessings for a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I hear ya, girl. Doing the potty training thing myself. Yesterday...BIG NEWS!!! Our 2 year old did a poopie. Woo hoo! (When did that become the most exciting thing to happen to me?)She was terrified. Then, it dawned on me...she has never actually seen it in all its glory.After I explainedwhat it was exactly..and that it wanted to be out...We said good-bye to that poopie. And wished it well!

Isn't it amazing what chocolate can do to calm the nerves? Best of luck with the potty training--4 at a time? You deserve the whold darn box!

Thanks for the encouragement on both the potty training and the Ding Dongs. I am in month 2 or 3 (I've lost count) of this wonderful adventure with my 2.5 yr old. Some days I think we are making progress others I don't know.

As for the ding dongs: #1 my mom's nick name for me growing up was an affectionate "Dingy". #2 I eat all kinds of sweets - processed and homemade by me! My current addiction outside of my normal Pepsi is a candy bar every time I go to the grocery store or gas station.

You go ahead enjoy every morsel of those Ding Dongs! Personally I am a Ho Ho gal. (Ho-now that didn't sound good)I always say if it works for you and isn't hurting anyone else...go for it! Good self control on your part, by the way!

Thanks for your comment on my blog-you totally do get it. I'm enjoying reading yours too!

I laughed the whole time I read this.....TOO FUNNY....I know you're probably pulling your hair out potty training 4 toddlers...WOW...and I thought one at a time was tough!!! I'm not a Ding Dong eater, but I do loves me the chocolate!! Good luck with the potty training! We'd love to come visit sometime, but I understand if it doesn't work right now with the holidays and such.
