Katie's Random Thoughts

Last night we went to IHOP for National Pancake Day. They were giving a free short stack of pancakes to every customer. We couldn’t pass up that kind of deal, especially since Ella loves pancakes. I loved my short stack, and Ella ate a little bit of hers, but Joe decided to order a sandwich instead and Ella really loved his French fries. I think the only reason she likes them is because she can dip them in ketchup.

I’ve really been thinking a lot about potty training lately. I’m trying to map out our course of action. I think I’ll go get the Elmo Potty Time video this weekend and possibly some books, and we’ll start with that and see how things go. I hear that when they are ready they pretty much let you know. I hope that’s true.

On an unrelated note, does anyone out there in blogland feel like the entire world of women age 25-35 is pregnant? I told Joe that everywhere I turn there is another pregnant woman. No offense to all you pregnant women out there…I’m happy for you. It just makes me feel a lot of pressure…like something is wrong with me because I’m not pregnant and not planning on getting pregnant anytime soon. You know what would make me feel better? If one of you named your kid after me…Katie…it’s a good, strong name and I can honestly say that I’ve never met a Katie I didn’t like!

Don't get me started on this one. I'm in that age range and can't even find a man to marry me so I get have a baby. Talk about pressure! (sigh)

For the record, Katie was one of those little girls who potty trained herself around age 2. I'm sure no one is surprised to hear this.

Katie -

If it makes you feel better, we named Katie Lynne after you... even though we hadn't met you yet.

Katie, Don't feel bad I am in that age range too and still have no kids. (You have 1 that is a good start!) Everyone in Wyoming is pregnant too. So you are not the only must be in the water or something......I need to find the secret......Nicole
