When you can’t even bribe your 2yo to pee on the potty but know he’s got A+ aim

There are tons of potty training memes out there, but none capture it so perfectly as Brian Gordon at Fowl Language Comics. We've still got two in diapers, for the record. So we gave the two littler guys a bath and allowed Graham a bit of free reign by letting him cruise around sans diaper until… Continue reading When you can’t even bribe your 2yo to pee on the potty but know he’s got A+ aim

Ranking the NFL’s 1-2 Teams; Nolan Rules!

After watching my beloved Oakland Raiders get manhandled by Peyton Manning and the Broncos last night (and lose QB Terrell Pryor to a concussion in the process), I thought it was time to rank the eleven 1-2 teams in the NFL, since that's the only place my Raiders fit in. 11.

Another Potty Training Post (Worth Reading!)

Let me just say this -- I am just as stressed with this potty training as I was tired during Nolan's first six-plus months of life (I cannot and will not speak for Linds).

I expected a lot of fake-ish stuff and bad acting but was pretty impressed with the product--at least for Week 1. I just got done watching it on DVR and there are two points of emphasis… Continue reading Modern Dads, Yankees Surging, Nolan’s a Boss

Day Games, Pure Wander and Day 2 of Potty Training

It's by far better than yesterday when he blew through 6 pairs of undies, four more than me. Today he's 5.5/7 on making it to his toilet on time. Unfortunately, he got up a little too soon from his guacamole and, well...you get it. I just put him down for a nap and plowed through… Continue reading Day Games, Pure Wander and Day 2 of Potty Training

Potty Training Time

The simple thought of this post reminds me how fast these past 28 months have gone. This post might be a little too graphic for some but if you're curious as to my methods of potty training, proceed. If not, better luck next time. Nolan is starting to show some interest in going "pee pee… Continue reading Potty Training Time
