France is the country where the money falls apart and you can't tear the toilet paper.-Billy Wilder

We've pretty much got Fiona potty trained and boy howdy was that the most fun ever? No, no it wasn't.

Now we are working on some more related issues like remembering to flush and turn off the light when you leave the room.

I spent today repeatedly giving step by step instructions on how to use toilet paper. Take a moment to think about that.

First grab the paper, now pull. No! No not that much, just a little. Yes just like that now tear it off. No. No stop. Put one hand on the roll to keep it from moving, yes like that. Now use your other hand to tear it. No from the top. The top Fiona. TOP not bottom. Yes that top sheesh. Okay now tear. Yay! Okay now kinda fold it up...

Good grief!

In unrelated news I have a job interview today. Wish me luck.

I know you hate it when people give you advice when you didn't ask for it (who doesn't?), but...

We'll call this, What Roses Did Wrong and How You Can Avoid It.

Is that okay?

By the time my boys were potty trained, we were so excited and eager to reinforce their training that at the mere mention of a boy needing the potty, we cleared out of the bathroom. It never occured to us to say, "I'm sorry, I was here first. You'll have to wait until I'm done."
Shaving, brushing teeth, putting on makeup... nothing was more important than a boy needing the potty, right?

Now they are teenagers. And they are still accustomed to barging into the bathroom and declaring, "I need the bathroom."


I apologize in advance to their future wives.
