"Your body is the first thing any child of man ever wanted. Therefore dispose yourself to be loved, to be wanted, to be available. Be there for them with a vengeance. Be a gracious, bending woman. Incline your ear, your heart, your hands to them.... To be a Mother is to be the sacrament - the effective symbol - of place. Mothers do not make homes, they are our home." from Bed and Board, Robert Farrar Capon

This may seem normal to an outsider but around here it's pretty life altering.
How can I keep from singing? (Or blogging). 

That's all for today.  I know.  It's not much of a post. But sometimes it's the little things in life that seem pretty important. Maybe it will encourage someone else who feels like they may never win the potty training battle.


  1. I think the smiling face should be yours!

    Our Pastor reminded me the other day (by message through my husband). "The most important thing I could be doing is taking care of o the blessings/children, God has given me; so there is no pressure to do any big things outside of my home.

  2. I know exactly what you mean and it's a pretty big deal! There has been much celebrating at our house as well over a certain almost 3 yr old who has traded in undies for pull-ups.
    Now i can add to my resume, Mother of Potty Trained Toddler. ; )

  3. Life altering indeed - money-wise, time-wise, and mother-sanity-wise
    You go Lu ;)

  4. Good job Mary. Your persistence finally paid off.
