Toilet Training Attempt One Day Two

Ok, on Monday I drove a very long distance to Ringwood to talk with a continence nurse about Toilet Training Tova! I was nervous and anxious about the meeting as quite often in the past at appointments I have been asked all sorts of questions that for one reason or another really bug me.. I was also running late and Tova was annoyed about the long drive.. So by the time I got there I was rather stressed.

HOWEVER, the lady that greeted me and then sat down with me for probably 2 hours was unbelievably lovely. I am completely overwhelmed by her compassion, friendliness, knowledge and general loveliness. She was great. She made me so relaxed. Even Tova became relaxed after a while and explored the offices.

She gave us tips on how to Toilet train Tova. It has been a bit of a wee wee journey so far.. just like Nissim was..

One wee in the toilet and the rest on towles on the sofa and in my bed. :-) oh the joys!

So.. Let us see how much I can handle and if I can deal with it, how long it takes to get Tova in undies. She does love wearing undies. She also LOVES sitting on the toilet.

It is very cute to feel her little bum with no nappy when I pick her up to carry her.. hehe.. She is pretty proud of her self so far, even though there really isn't much to be proud of from my point of view, at least from the point of washing view!

Day 3 here we come!

Tassi and Back

Tova, Nissim and I went to Tassi. Yuval stayed at home worked and rested (lucky man).

There were loads of bush fires while we were there. The smoke was terrible, but for some reason, Tova didn't get Croup or any other breathing issue, which means this year on our visit to Tassi, we avoided being admitted to the Royal Hobart! Nice work little Tova!

My mother came down for the last couple of days (we all stayed at dads), and she said the smoke was bothering her, so we were all quite happily surprised that Tova had no issues.

Rick, my brother and his wife and kids also came down. The cousins all had a ball!

I met up with some Tassi clients and hung out with family. Quite a few friends were trapped along the coast due to so many roads being blocked becuase of the fires.

The kids and I went to the taste. It was amazing! Every year it just gets better and better. I hope that next year (if we go) there are more rides and fun things for the kids to do.. however, even if there isn't, it is great just how it is.

We had a ball!

Home now and Nissim is back at creche. Tova is waiting to go to the same creche, but we just found out that all the paper work we had filled out over the past few months was wrong - the wrong forms, so we have to start again (thaks so much for that to the person who is to blame.. nice work! I hope to never meet you for your sake). I am kinda going out of my mind with no respite. But this is the life of a Mother I guess. Hopefully it will all be sorted out in a matter of weeks not months. *sigh*. I think Tova is also pretty bored.

At least Yuval got a break while we were away!
