So, Rozz has now gone two nights in a row sans
Pull-ups and woken with a dry bed. Hooray!
He has, however, been quite adverse to the concept of underwear. Both sets of grandparents have purchased underdrawers for him... one set ranging from dinosaurs to camouflage and the other with Lightning McQueen. Both sets met first with vague interest which quickly turned to scorn. Left me scratching my head. I
thought they were cute.
So, in light of the potty trained achievement, I figured I'd take him shopping and let him choose some underpants. And there, I discovered the problem. He wanted nothing
to do with skivvies that had 'cute' little pictures or designs on them. No cartoon characters. Nothing. He was only interested in solid colors or very simple stripes. Those of you who don't have little boys won't be aware of this... I wasn't 'till today... but it is basically impossible hard to find solid colored boy's knickers in his size. And I have a personal loathing
of tighty whiteys and will not see my little boy's Perfect Butt in such atrocious things. We ended up with 3 pair of these
, but I fear they'll still be a bit too large. It's a start, I suppose. They're in the wash right now.
So, while I was out today, I was horrified by the weather. We're still in January and it feels like Summer outside. It has for days. Bright, sunny and warm. Not a cloud in the sky. We drove past the reservoir yesterday and it was woefully low. This time of year, it should be full... trees partially submerged, but no. I think we're in for a rough year. ::sigh:: Oh... wait... President Change is in power now! Hrmmmmm...
Dear Mr. President... please use your amazing Powers to open up the heavens and send California the rain it desperately needs. Amen.
