My Professional Background - Once upon a time, I wanted to be a motivational speaker. Actually, I was a professional motivational speaker for about 5 years.:
Remember how I said last week that my husband thought maybe I shouldn’t home school our kids because of the damage I could do? You don’t? Okay, well read this first.

So, in an effort to entice our almost 2 1/2-year-old to use the toilet rather than $10,000 worth of diapers or MY LEG, I bought him some nifty, Thomas the Train undies. He loved them. I was convinced this would work.

I said in my sweetest mommy voice, “JJ, you get to WEAR these undies if you go on the potty like a big boy!”

And he screamed, “Noooooooo potty!” And promptly put a pair on his head.

This kept him wildly entertained for at least a good 20 minutes.

Yeah. Homeschooling probably is a good idea. This has “flick my ears until they bleed” written all over it.

    And you restrict what I’m allowed to make for him to wear??? I think my little appliqued outfits would look much better than underwear on the head! Just saying!! He is so adorable!!

    Not only is the kid cute, but I love the rakes on your wall.

      Stalk away, my dear! And I love my rakes. Just make sure if you do this, you put a table in front of them so you don’t impale your head. Handy little tip there.
