So NOT your typical motivation Monday but…I am not typical. Sometimes you just have do deal with some ish to get to the good stuff. After 4 whole days of potty training and just 1 accident…we had and accident…and a messy one at that. We had just finished our workout and I was making a video when Audrey started to cry and yell down for us. She had made a “mess” all over her floor in her room and I think she was so upset that she tried to clean it up herself…which in turn made an even bigger mess. Lol. Since my husband doesn’t deal with bodily fluids and such very well…I am busy scribing the floors and the rails on our steps and my kid!
I fortunately am the kind of person who isn’t flustered or upset by much. I could have been really upset about it or I do what I do best and just roll with it. You can’t change the things that happen to you. But you can change how you react to them. You can choose to let it ruin your day or you just “clean up the mess” with a smile on your face always finding the positive and what the lesson learned is from each experience. How can you become better.
In this particular experience…I learned to put up the gate to the stairs when I am not paying FULL attention to audrey while she is potty training so if this happens again it will be on a tile floor and not the carpet. Lol. And the positive is that she learned from it and was upset by it and is probably NOT going to do it again as she just told us she had to go on the potty. Soon enough she will be a big girl and this phase will be over. Which actually makes me kind of sad and happy at the same time.
Anyway…Happy MONDAY and enjoy your day off!! We will be spending good quality family time together playing board games and doing low key things since my little man Quin is not feeling well.
FIND YOUR SILVER LINING IN EVERYTHING YOU DO AND THAT HAPPENS TO YOU!
