Georgie's 1st Potty Pee!

I just HAD to share that huge grin!

Georgie has been showing an interest in his potty for ages. We had no plans to start him potty training just yet because he's only 2 1/4, but if he's keen we're not about to stop him either.

He has been fighting nappies for ages, much preferring the "pull up pants" that Tom wears for bed. Sometimes we oblige him, sometimes we don't. Mainly because they are much more expensive than his nappies... But if he really wants to use them and try to use his potty more I guess we should go with the flow!

This evening Hubby was changing Georgie's nappy and George was fighting him as usual. He got up and wondered off asking for the potty. We've had it out for a while because he likes to play at using it, but we've not put any pressure on him. So I showed him where it was and off he toddled. He sat down, as he often does, and we thought nothing of it.

Only this time when he got up, he DIDN'T wave it around like he normally does. Just stood there, pointing, and saying "Look Mummy!" and sure enough.... there was a wee! So we made a fuss of him, gave him a chocolate coin, and he grinned from ear to ear!

We're still not putting any pressure on, and he's still in nappies for a while -  nursery tomorrow and on Thu Hubby will be home alone all day with ALL THREE BOYS thanks to the Teacher's Strike - but I'm thinking on Friday I might let him wonder about without any nappy or pants on and see how he gets on. Take it nice and slow. It's over a year before we really need him to be out of nappies and pull ups for Big Nursery, and with a new baby imminent I am aware that now it not the best time to start a major routine change. But it would be foolish to stop him from trying if he really wants to!

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on
