One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident

A So-Much-to-Tell-You-So-Little-Time Sensational Sunday!

This weekend along with the previous week have been a blur! I’m in the potty training trenches, peak FitBloggin‘ planning, self-publishing a book and pitching another book proposal to a publisher.

All super, super fun stuff!!

First the book because if I don’t tell you now I may just explode. It’s DONE!

It was so amazing to hold it in my hand but even more amazing to sit back and watch this…

Little Bean’s Funderwear Day! exists because of their inspiration and to see them reading it brought a tear to my eye.

If you are interested, the book is now on sale — click here. I know this sounds like a pitch but it’s worth the buy just for the artwork. David really did an amazing job. I really can’t wait to work on another project with him!

The picture above was taken Friday night — Funderwear Eve as I like to call it. Little Bean was wearing the last diaper of his toddler career.

Saturday was trying to say the least. I almost lost it twice.

Oh, who am I kidding. I lost it. The Husband had to talk me off the ledge just like he did on Big Brother’s Funderwear Day six years ago.

Today is going much better! He made it overnight and freely went on the potty first thing this morning!

Then I put him to work.  :)

We started the laundry first thing to hit the ground running.

They are both really good helpers, although the 8-Year-Old is getting whinier and whinier about it.

After the laundry was in we played a bit and I practiced my handstands.

I never thought I’d be able to get myself into a handstand. Ever. It’s not that I’m not strong enough, I just have a phobia about things like this. Even has a child I could never do tumbles or cartwheels. I blame my height. I have a lot of body to throw around!

Anyway, I did it and I’m freakin’ proud of myself. One day I’ll stop selling myself short.

One day.

Breakfast was new pancakes I made the kids.

I jam packed it with every healthy thing I could think of. I’ll post more about them on GreenLiteBites this week because both kids loved them…

And yes, that’s Little Bean having breakfast in bed. It was a potty reward. :)

For myself I made a scramble.

For some reason I can’t make omelets anymore. I think I need a new pan.

After breakfast a little pull-up practice, and this time The Husband even joined in.

The 8-Year-Old was amused. This ISN’T Dad’s thing. lol

We continued cleaning, playing and potty-sitting until lunch.

I made spinach pizza on sandwich thins, broccoli and hummus wraps for myself.

After lunch the 8-Year-Old and I had a date at the go-kart place.

20140518_H

That’s me chasing him.

Yeah, we had a blast!

20140518_I

I must admit, I had more fun than I thought I would. I never drove a go-kart before but I will again. That’s for sure!

For the next hour the 8-Year-Old and I ate our way through Costco. The sample tables were everywhere and we had fun trying them all.

Dinner was a store-bought rotisserie chicken, roasted beets and a side salad. It was so hectic I forgot to take a photo but here’s my leftovers for a fabulous lunch tomorrow!

While cleaning up the 3-Year-Old — NOT wearing a diaper I may add! — introduced me to his new friend:

Mr. Caterpillar.

I was actually kind of proud of him because he’s been pretty squeamish about bugs lately.

The day ended with an unhappy laundry folder, a trip to Target and some ice cream.

I would have more photos but I didn’t bring my camera and my phone died. Double whammy.

Regardless, I was super proud of the 3-Year-Old who only had one accident today and is now sleeping in “big boy underwear ” for the second night. He made the trip to Target, told us he had to “pee pee” on the drive home and held it without a problem.

That’s it, ladies and gentlemen, this handstand-loving mom is done with diapers forever! Yay for Funderwear Day! 

Hope you had a great weekend. I’m up much later than I want to be. Got to go!

    Congratulations on the book! I just bought a copy for my nephew, who is already potty-training but who could probably use more reinforcement — and who might just like reading about FUNDERWEAR.
