I have to start off by letting my handful of readers know that Alyssa is in no way completely potty trained. For part of the day I let her run around in her panties. And like I did with Christopher, every few minutes I ask her if she needs to go potty. Right now she thinks it's a game but anything is better than nothing. I didn't force her the first time so that is good. We'll take this one at whatever pace she wishes as it will help me from becoming frustrated like I did with Christopher.
Now this morning, I woke up minus some skin on my forehead. I don't know how it happened but my husband had a late work day so he gave the kids breakfast and let them loose downstairs. I had fallen asleep on the sofa since last night. When I woke up they were playing nicely but my forehead was hurting. I felt the spot that was sore. I didn't know it at the time but there was some dried blood there. I am thinking maybe Alyssa and her long nails scratched me somehow. See how these kids beat me up?
