I decided to wax my Mother's legs for her the other day - being the kind daughter that I am. So I went about very nicely waxing her first leg....marvelous (apart from the screaming)! But then we ran into a little snag... ran out of wax. Oopsy. Not a problem - went online and got a recipe for sugaring. Had to substitute a few ingredients we didn't have on hand. -- May I just take this moment to suggest that sometimes this doesn't work out. -- We ended up with this tar like substance (actually tasted great on toast) that was thick and sticky and really didn't do much but cause my Mother to look like she was about to be tarred and feathered. Problem was - it didn't really come off. After 3 showers and much scrubbing it did but the hair remained.
No problem. We'll just get more wax... but then life got in the way and I forgot. So Mum went for a week with one leg smooth like a baby's bottom and one yeti style. Finally got back to it so now Mum doesn't have to wear her pants like a rapper. (one leg up, one leg down).
In other news... potty training success! I never thought I'd be so happy to see a poop. (Other than when they are newborn and you fear they might be constipated and then -- tada! This is only close to the relief I felt when I got an hour of consecutive sleep at that point.) I am almost at the point of not having to buy diapers and this a great cause for celebration. What a good kid I have. Unfortunately for me - I have to bribe her with suckers.... anyone ever seen a 2 year old kid at bedtime who has had 5 suckers? Can anyone say sugar high? Lucky for me and my desire to sleep I have found sugarless suckers. I am one happy Mommy today.
