I don't like racing with music either (I'd rather have, say, eksmom or HBM with me chatting!) but I did bring my little teeny mp3 player with me for the full marathon. there were some parts where I just needed my girls (indigo, that is) and I was all alone and dragging. although heavily stalked by the dingoes, as I remember, which meant a lot!
running with food has several times now meant escaping from the ILs to "pick up some groceries"
after a three mile run, of course. if it means I have to run with chicken, so be it.
and they are coming again next week to stay for another SEVEN. DAYS. so errand runs, here I come.
woo hoo, congrats, shanti!!!! Hope you enjoyed that walk!
I don't think I'll get in on the buddy thing this time...afraid I would drop the ball...but I totally would respond to eksmom's ad.
inspired by y'all, I got out the potty for ds (almost 19 months). he is way into it!
he sat on it with his clothes on and pooped.
so, maybe there is something to the "window." he has been talking about the potty for a while, so that's what made it all come together...he says, "mee mee (big sis) potty, mama potty, dada potty!"
