It’s been a rough month, but it seems like we are coming out of the end of it. Between the leaves…oh my goodness…the LEAVES. Will it never end!? And the body restructuring going on with the littles, I am not sure where I am, who I am, and what year it is. Even the cats are keeping a wide berth.

I couldn’t find a Velma outfit for Itty Bitty that was her size. I did manage to find a red floral skirt that I can turn inside out to make solid red. I had to go searching in the “boy” department to find an orange sweater. I couldn’t find orange socks ANYWHERE. Luckily we have red socks and Itty Bitty can wear her black dress shoes. We had some old 3D glasses that kind of look like Velma’s specktacles. I will put Itty Bitty’s hair in a faux bob after I straighten it a bit with a flat iron and it will look Scoobtastic.

Happy Halloween! The Scoobies are ready! Daddy Man is supposed to be Shaggy but didn’t buy any acceories. He did wear a green shirt and khaki’s, though Itty Bitty and I agreed that the green shirt wasn’t green enough! I was pinkified with my wig, heavy makeup, flower child inspired design on my cheek, and I even had fake lashes! Itty Bitty looked just like Velma and I even put on fake freckles. Mini Moose wanted hiss face done too, so he got a Scooby inspired face paint to go with his costume. We makde a last minute addition to his costume. Daddy Man opened an old cereal box, turned it inside out, scrawled “Scooby Snaks” on it — and that was Mini Mooses’ trick or treat container! The boy wouldn’t let it go even when it got heavy. I was holder of the pillow case for holding the excess loot.

It was a brisk night…a little cold but clear. Itty Bitty refused to wear pants or a jacket over her costume, so I just layered extra shirts under the sweater and made sure he knee socks were pulled high. Some people knew we were Scooby and the Gang, and others took a while. Are we really that old!? Yeah…we are.

Much candy was collected for Daddy Man and I to loot later. Muahahahaha.


11/1 Saturday Day 986

Night EC: 1 night and 1 morning catch

It is now November and since it is clear that we don’t have any Day EC issues worth mentioning at all, I’ve cut down our daily report to nights. Even that is pretty routine. Dull dull dull…is what we want though! Most of the time now, I don’t even know when Mini Moose has gone potty, since he doesn’t need to tell me unless he’s having a problem, or we are out and he can’t go by himself. He prefers to rear mount the toilet still, so he’s usually without pants since that is easiest for him. It’s not that he can’t take his pants off, it is just more convenient. He can’t put them on yet, though if they are already on he can pull them up. Somtimes when Itty Bitty is going, Mini Moose will decided it needs to be a joint effort. I really don’t like cleaning out the Little Potty when that happens! I really could just put it away, but it doesn’t hurt to have it out. We don’t use the little potty at night, we are still using a jumbo, plastic soda cup for night pee. With a boy, it is really easiest and less likely to miss fire! Mini Moose has tried to pee himself in a cup on his own, however, he has not yet learned the utmost importance of aiming first (he aims when he uses the big toilet, but forgets elsewhere)! He does like to empty it too, though, I (being a tired parent, recovering from a double growth spurt of a five year old and 2.5 year old) don’t encourage it — I’m just tired of cleaning the backsplash on toilet.

I still have Mini Moose in his Imse Vimse training pants at night just in case of a miss. I do put him in traning pants under his clothes, not because of mishaps (which don’t happen anymore), but because they fit him well and they aren’t good enough to pass on to anyone else. Several of them, after two rounds of EC, are getting holes! I can put him in regular underwear with confidence, just trying to get as much life out of these as possible!


11/2 Sunday Day 987

Night EC: 1 night and 1 morning catch


11/3 Monday Day 988

Night EC: 1 night and 1 morning catch

How does Mini Moose aim in the toilet? Does he stand? No. He sits facing the toilet with his legs straddled wide, both hands holding him steady, leans forward so he can aim, and pees free style. He’ll even do a number to this way, but he prefers to face the proper direction for that.

11/8 Saturday Day 993

Night EC: 1 night miss (I was really out of it) and 1 morning catch

Dear Mini Moose…I would appreciate it if you switched to a verbal, “I have to pee,” rather than crawling on my face and sreeching as your potty signal. Thanks.


11/9 Sunday Day 994

Night EC: 1 night and 1 morning catch

Night EC: 1 night and 1 morning catch

Mini Moose almost lost an eye!

All I wanted to do was…rake…again. It was a nice day. The kids were at each other’s throats. So we went outside. It was okay for about an hour, then I moved down the driveway while the kids were playing with their trikes. The area I was raking was not an area with much visibility and had a lot of debris. I don’t mind the kids climbing on rock and things, but we have an area for that where you can actually see where you are going. I had JUST finished telling the kid, “Not safe over there. Not for climbing!” A few seconds later, Mini Moose decides to jump off into a ground cover, and pops back up with a bloody eye! My heart was in my throat! I tossed the rake, leaped over debris, scooped up the boy, called the girl, ran into the house, and applied ice.

After the initial adrenalin rush, I could see that he was a very lucky little boy. Half an inch higher and he’d have been blinded. It wan’t bleeding much and he gouged out some skin, but I now know why our eyes are set inside bony sockets that protrude! He stopped crying after three minute, and after five minutes acted like nothing happened except for wanting ice on it and asking to nurse. Instead of going to the ER, I took him into the peditrician’s office. We still waited an hour and a half, but that is way less than we would have been at the ER. By the time we were seen, the swelling was down a bit. The eye itself was undamaged. The doctor said a stitch wouldn’t help the flesh injury, and to just leave it alone. We got some topical antibiotic prescribed that he said we probably wouldn’t need.

What is it with this boy and his eyes!? This is the second eye injury, and I think it is the same eye!


11/11 Tuesday Day 996

Night EC: 1 night and 1 morning catch

Day 2: The swelling is mostly all gone today. The injury is scabbed over and look ugly, but is already healing fast. I put some of the ointment on it today because he was touching it with a finger, and some vitamin E oil. I doubt it will get infected, but toddler fingers are dirty beasts.

We stayed inside and played with play doh. I am just not up for going out. I’m more shaken about yesterday, while the kids are back to normal.


11/12 Wednesday Day 997

Night EC: 1 night and 1 morning catch

Day 3: The eye is healing really well, and I swear that this lucky little bug is probably not even going to scar!


11/13 Thursday Day 998

Night EC: 1 night and 1 morning catch

Day 4: Everything is going well. Healing fast, no sign of infection, no swelling. Kids are fighting again. More leaves fell.


11/14 Friday Day 999

Night EC: 1 night and 1 morning catch

Day 5: Scab fell off and bled a little. It look like little more than a scratch. “Boo-Boo eye” will soon be an after thought.


11/15 Saturday Day 1000

Night EC: 1 night and 1 morning catch

Day 6: Happy 1000th Entry! Wow. What is there to say, except I think it is time to think about starting another blog that isn’t dedicated to …output. I can’t believe I’ve been doing diary entries about EC for FIVE years now and only had each child in a diaper for a year or less! It doesn’t seem like it has been that long, yet, Itty Bitty is five years old. Wish I had something profound to say. How about: “In your face, critics!”


11/16 Sunday Day 1001

Night EC: 1 night and 1 morning catch

Day 7: Eye looks great, the second scab over is also healing well.


11/17 Monday Day 1002

Night EC: 1 night and 1 morning catch

Day 8: He picked his eye and left fresh skin exposed. THAT might scar. If he had left it alone, it probably wouldn’t have at all. We’ll see in a few weeks. But for now, I consider it fully healed.


It was a groovy Halloween this year.
