It's JUST a Refill!!!!

Okay, remember when refills on your soda used to be like $.25!! I went to the gas station the other day to get my cup refilled because I LOVE fountain soda, and it was over $1.00! I was like, uh, hello, I have MY OWN cup and it only costs you guys like 2 cents for this crap. I even had to take a few pennies from the penny jar because I had what I thought was enough change. I felt like such a dork. So, today I went to this place right around the corner from me and they only charged me $.50. Whew! That is a little better.

Can you tell I have nothing exciting to blog about?

Oh, more poop and pee news. Ryley has been waking up at the crack of dawn lately (for me anyway); like around 7am. It is so early for me. So this morning she wakes up at 6:45 and I was like, uh, I don't think so. But I figured it out. She has to go to the bathroom and doesn't want to pee in her diaper. Personally, I would rather have her pee her bed just to get the extra sleep. Actually, she has done that plenty of times when she takes off her diaper (we had to start using duct tape) and it is way too much work to pull off all the sheets and blankets and wash them every day.

Here is the poop news: So we went swimming today with her little friend Ana (Ah-na). Next thing I know she has pooped in her stinkin' "swimmer" diaper. As you may or may not know, those diapers are like pull ups, so when you pull them down all the poop falls out. That is exactly what happened when I tried to change her. It was disgusting! So, some of the poop falls on the counter, and I am like, oh crap (no pun intended). So I have to get a paper towel and scoop up the poop. Then I felt really bad because I didn't have any of my handy sanitizing wipes with me, so I put a bunch of soap on the counter and tried to wash it. Then I had to put Ryley in the sink because there was poop all over her and....yuck yuck yuck!!!
This, my friends, is my life in a nutshell!!

Do you use the word "pop" or "soda" when describing a carbonated drink? Check out this survey....

I used to say pop until my good friend Swishy looked at me like I was crazy. According to her, the proper term is "soda."

Here in Chicago we call it pop.

It seems the farther south you go it becomes soda.

Potty training is the worst. I hate doing it. I have been kind of hoping my son will just learn by watching his big brother. He turns 3 in September and he hasn't shown any interest in it yet. My oldest son starts Kindergarten on Monday and I am kind of hoping my other son makes the comment about going to school too so I can say that boys who use the big potty go to school.

We will see.

Good luck!

2 things.....
1) no offense, but i hate ot when people call it pop. i think it sounds a little country and wehn we lived it utah, it drove me crazy so i'm with swishy on that one. i call it soda and when i was younger, i called it coke, no matter what kind it was. there was a survey on the food network and i found out that some people call it pop some soda and some call it coke like i did when i was a kid. weird!!
2) my cousin taught me an awesome trick about swimmers and pull ups. She used to work at a day care and when the kids were potty training and would wear their pull ups and poop in them it was a horrible mess, she found out that you can just rip the sides of the diaper at the hip and down. i think there is a little seam there and it's super easy to pull apart. i have used this many times with ahnika this summer with her swimmers. i guess it works for pull ups too so try it next time and let me know what you think. it's the best!

I say soda, but then again, I'm from the south where they call it a coke no matter what kind of soda it may be. A Dr. Pepper is a coke. A Mountain Dew is a coke. A Sprite is a coke. And of course, a Coke is a coke.

My kiddo wakes me at 7AM, too. I now use her as my alarm clock, which really sucks when she decides 5AM is a good time to be up.

OK, remember when we used to go to Harts and get Dr Pepper and chocolate and then drive around and listen to that radio show Bitch and Moan? That is like one of my favorite memories EVER!! That was soooo fun.

I say pop and I did not learn it from living in Utah - Cory:) I think I picked it up in Iowa.
