Menu Plan and Potty Parties

(This is an older picture of Ellie, but I want to try to include more pictures in my posts.)

Last week's menu was a bit of a flop, and I didn't follow it all that closely. Oh well. Some weeks are like that, and that's okay. There are a few repeats this week because of that.

Here`s the plan for this week:

Sunday
Went out to eat

Monday
Hamburgers on the BBQ, Grilled Veggie Salad

Tuesday
Leftover Hamburgers (I don`t know why my computer is acting weird and underlining this)

Wednesday
Grilled Chicken Salad with Honey Citrus Marinade, Baked Potatoes, One-Hour Focaccia Bread

Thursday
Baked Fettuccine Alfredo with Mushrooms, Caesar Salad

Friday
Sausage, Perogies, Cooked Mixed Veggies

Saturday
Chicken Fingers, Tater Tots, Veggies & Dip

In other news....this morning we threw a Potty Party for Ellie in hopes of getting her excited about trying potty training again. It wasn't really that big of a thing. I just threw some balloons in the bathroom and strung a couple of streamers. I also wrapped up her training underwear and let her open it. She was super excited at first, but the excitement kind of wore off quickly. She's going diaper-free (except at nap and bedtime), and I have the timer set for every 30 minutes or so to remind her to try. I'm going to give it an honest go again this week and if it still isn't clicking, I'll hold off totally for another month or so. She will be 2 soon, so I think it's a good time to try, but no pressure really.Believe it or not, the best success we`ve had so far was when she was about 16 months old and she was really into it and telling me when she had to go. I can tell you this much...potty training isn't exactly my favourite thing so far. It`s kind of interesting because she knows when she`s had an accident because she`ll come to me and say ``uh oh. Big mess!`` Lol. (I don`t know why my computer suddenly is typing my apostrophes all weirdly.).
