The Real Housewife of Claycord – Every Thursday at 2pm on Claycord.com
Mr. Mayor has renewed my $0 (that’s zero dollar) contract for another two weeks! Yay for me!
A few weeks ago I told you my son was in the middle of being potty trained, and my house smelled like my son was in the middle of being potty trained.
The training is complete!
With the magic of carpet cleaner and a few air fresheners, my house is slowly getting back to its normal smell (although I’m not sure which smell is better).
Potty training for my son came pretty easy. He had a few accidents on the carpet and a few in his pants when he couldn’t make it to the bathroom in time, but overall, he’s excited about this new adventure.
Many parents with boys will be able to relate to me when I say “holy cow my bathroom floor is slowly turning yellow”.
I had no idea boys were so messy. This kid, when he goes to the bathroom (#1), wants to stand up, and only about 10% of the #1 makes it into the toilet. The rest is on the floor, on the toilet seat, on the toilet paper hanging on the wall and on the wall. It pretty much lands everywhere but where it’s supposed to land. I find myself cleaning the bathroom multiple times a day, which is probably a good thing, but wow, I wish he could just hit the water once in a while!
Any parents out there have any good suggestions on how to train your child to actually pee in the toilet? I’d love to hear any suggestions/tips!
Enough about pee, let’s talk about things I saw around Claycord this week….
- Has anybody else noticed all the new “massage” places around town. These places are the ones that are open past 10pm and offer the cheap “foot massage”. Interesting. There are a ton of them popping up around Claycord (pardon the pun).
- I saw a kid, who was no older than 15, purchase a 40-ounce beer from a local grocery store this week. When the clerk asked him for his ID, he said “I left it in the car”, and the person still sold it to him! I hate being a “rat”, but I told the store manager, who said he would talk to the employee.
- Has anybody seen the guy with the monkey in downtown Concord? He was walking around the other day in Todos Santos Plaza with a monkey on his shoulder. Cute little thing (the monkey, not the guy). I wonder if the City of Concord will now pass a “no monkeys in Todos Santos Plaza” law?
The Real Housewife of Claycord Housetip of the Week:
- Using corks is a great way to organize small sharp objects such as corn cob holders, tacks or push pins. Just stick them into a cork and you’ll be able to find them in your drawer easily, without poking yourself with the sharp ends in the process. (source, http://theseasonalgourmet.ca)
That’s it for this week.
I hope you all have a wonderful week, and since my contract has been renewed for two more weeks, I will see you next Thursday at 2pm!
It’s time for me to go make a pie! Yummy Yummy!
