Re-potty training??

Yes, I know. I put the question marks there because I question why this has happened, but Mason (our 4 year old) has reverted back to peeing on himself. For the most part he can BM in the potty, but on occasion he has those accidents. Yesterday alone he had 6 pee accidents. I call it lazy but doctors might call it a small bladder.

My question is: Do I put him back in Pull-ups to save on having to wash many underwear or do I leave him in the underwear and just set a timer so that he goes/tries every 30 minutes?

Hayden's NEW set of glasses!

Hayden at 2 years old

Hayden at 18 months

I have 2 boys that have strabismus and bad vision. They both wear bifocals. We ordered Hayden's last sunday because the last pair he had, the dog chewed up. These will hopefully be better since they are metal frames instead of plastic frames. It's a blessing that we have really good insurance that we were able to splurge and get him Tommy Hilfiger brand glasses. He's one cute little boys with that fro of red curly hair and freckles but once you add those glasses, instantly an adorable little boys!

We have scheduled their eye appointment, which is the best pediactric opthamologist in Texas. It takes us 4 months to get in. Cody (6 year old) will most likely have surgery to correct his eye muscle. In the mean time we are having to be tough mommy and daddy and patch the good eye and allow him to work the bad eye out! That is our goal to do that an hour at the least everyday until that June appointment. Please pray for immediate help.

*Strabismus, more commonly known as cross-eyed or wall-eyed, is a vision condition in which a person can not align both eyes simultaneously under normal conditions. One or both of the eyes may turn in, out, up or down. An eye turn may be constant (when the eye turns all of the time) or intermittent (turning only some of the time, such as, under stressful conditions or when ill). Whether constant or intermittent, strabismus always requires appropriate evaluation and treatment.

Day one

Today I started my new goal for this month. I have picked up a habit of drinking way too much sweet tea. I love it. So for this month I have challenged myself to drink ONLY water. NO sweet tea, sodas (which I don't have a problem with that), beer, wine, or anything except WATER. I know I don't know why I did this to myself but again this is day one and I have craved sweet tea all day. But I am hoping for a good outcome!

I also did a small goal for the week to work out everyday. So far it's 9pm and I still haven't done my workout. I am still sore from yesterday's ass kicking from Jillian. Today I got a new Jillian (Biggest Loser) DVD workout called CARDIO BLAST. So, I am going to go do that whenever I get off here and the Texas basketball game is off (per my husbands request!).
