Mister is going to be so surprised at how much his son has changed. Munchkin is making great strides on the potty training front. He is only having 1-2 accidents a day, usually toward evening when he is tired, but he is staying dry all day at school, and today for the first time came and got me to go potty. I am so proud of. Of course, since I am doing most of the training he is peeing like a girl, but it is nice that I don't the messy toilet thing to clean..LOL
He is talking so much better, clearer, and pronouncing words better than when Mister left to go to the Philippines in August. We are only about a week out now till Mister comes home, and he thinks that Munchkin will be the same, and he is not believing me about how much he has changed just in 6 weeks. LOL
I love my husband, but with him gone these weeks, it is making a huge difference on how I think this house should be run. Unfortunately, it won't be around him. I think that is going to be the biggest struggle for him. I know he will overcome, but it will be a struggle.
Munchkin, is getting excited to see his Daddy soon. Well better to get to bed, it was a really late night last night, as Munchkin was not feeling the best. I am exhausted.
I have become obessed with this series...it is so well written and Stephanie Meyers is able to take your imagination to new levels, would definately recommend it...:)

Well the Munchkin turned 3 today. I can not believe it, my little baby is growing up so fast. He is still the polite little boy that we are attempting to raise. His newest thing is when I explain why we can not do something, he comes back with "Oh, Right", like he knew it all along. He is such a little ham. He had a ball at Chuck E. Cheese, the only thing missing was his Daddy, who is still in out of the country. Mister is going to be so surprised at how much Munchkin has changed in 6 weeks.
Munchkin is also starting the potty training thing, and at school with his teacher he is doing great, to the point they are telling me no more pullups, at home is another story. He will hardly sit on the toilet. I am not giving up, but at least now we are making some progress, this time 3 weeks ago he would not even sit on a toilet. LOL
The other big thing in life, is I applied for a new job as a Nursing Supervisor at a Family Pratice Clinic in a town about 7 miles from my home. I was not going to do it, but they announced on Monday, that our group was not going to be allowed to Telecommute most likely until after 2009, and the reason was because they could not verify our productivity. I nearly blew a gasket, I have given my heart and soul to this company and this is the thanks I get. So it was easy to hit the submit button Monday night. I did not expect to hear anything until a couple of weeks, but I got a call on Thursday and I have an interview on this Monday. The pay could definately be more than I am making, plus the added benefit of commuting 7 miles vs 30 miles one way with today's gas prices would be great.
I am still really torn about leaving my current job, as I love all my coworkers and I have a lot of great friends. I just can't pretend to love it there anymore. I am bored, and I need some new challenges. I know they think I am the glue that holds that team together, but I have faith they can do it on their own. They have to when I leave for whatever new position whether sooner or later.
Well, going to go and sit and play with Munchkin...leave you with some of his pictures...

Well I am surviving, barely. I have decided I am not a tough woman anymore that can do anything. I am freely handing over the mowing of the yard duties back to hubby as of Sept 30th. Vacuuming is killing my back, ever since my herniated disc that is one part of housekeeping that has never been good. My little Munchkin has obviously turned into the Little Monster. I found a cavity while brushing his teeth the other day and would he cooperate with the dentist? NOOOOO, now we will have to go back and try conscious sedation and try and get that cavity filled. One minute he is crying he misses his Daddy, and the next he will not talk to him on the phone...I have not had one moment of peace since 8/21/08 and all I all I really want is a long hot bath to soak without a little voice yelling Mommy for some silly reason.
Now don't get me wrong..I love the Little Monster...um the Little Munchkin..but I truly believe I should get some type of gold medal for this single mom stint. Considering I have never done it before...and after this...I am not going to do it again. There is a reason Heavenly Father says that both a mother and father should raise a family. LOL
Other than that we are now down to 26 days until Mister comes home..and I can not wait for that to happen and being able to take a long hot bath...alone....ahhhh now that would be heaven..
