Sick Monday... but Supercalifragilistic Sunday!

What an deliciousdelightfuldivine weekend we had.  We did nothing.  
Oh gracious nothing how I've missed you.  Oh slow Sunday how I've ached for you.  
We ate.  We drank.  We slept.  We did it again.  And again.

We were slow to rise Sunday morning -- it looked a little something like this:

Back to bed.
Good Morning Part 2 was more like this:

And slowly progressed to this:

Yup! The stinky prince pooped -- on the TOILET.  We were reading a little bit on Infant Potty Training -- not planning to do much with it, but just interested.  It goes a little something like this:

  • Anticipate when your infant needs to go 

  • Make a watery sound such as "sssss" or say "pee pee"  when he seems like he is about to go (we missed this step but...





  • When you think he needs to go, hold him over the toilet while making the 'sound'
Apparently the baby is supposed to pick up on the sound cue and within a short time associate it with elimination -- meaning he will be able to make this sound and/or point when he needs to use the bathroom.  

And so we tried it.  Well Stefano tried it -- I was sleeping when the scream of his voice beckoning me to the washroom with my camera awoke me from the intense cookie dream I was having (an entirely different story all together).  Rushing to the bathroom I found a proud papa holding a piccolo poopie prince on the toilet -- and yes, he was pooping.  

Oh! Almost forgot... Stefano added this step to the Infant Potty Training -  Italian Style:


Then we cut our nails.

Annnnnd.... back to sleep.

The difference between sleeping and SNOOZING!
Entered this one in A Sorta Fairytale Challenge!

Good Morning Part 3 was a little more permanent:

Our afternoon went pretty much like this:

While I cooked

Seba did a little of this:
Is he saying "naa naa naa boo boo"?  Is he saying "ciao ciao"?  Is he singing "Skidamarink a dinky dink"?  
Who knows?!

And papà did a lot of that:

Stop stealing the pancetta! Slap!

We ate a lot of this for lunch and a whole lot of this for dinner.

Seba ate this: 

And then 


Not for the dinner, not for the poop.  Maybe he clapped for nothing? -- Maybe he too loved our nothingness Sunday?

We had a lovely day....even if now I am having a sick Monday.  Through my stuffy sniffles I smile  thinking of my Supercalifragilistic Sunday and look forward to millions of Sundays to come.  

It's not that unusual

When everything is beautiful

It's just another ordinary miracle today

The sky knows when it's time to snow

Don't need to teach a seed to grow

It's just another ordinary miracle today

Life is like a gift they say

Wrapped up for you everyday

Open up and find a way

To give some of your own

Isn't it remarkable

Like every time a raindrop falls

It's just another ordinary miracle today

Birds in winter have their fling

Will always make it home by spring

It's just another ordinary miracle today

When you wake up everyday

Please don't throw your dreams away

Hold them close to your heart

'Cause we're all a part of the ordinary miracle

Ordinary miracle

Do you want to see a miracle?

It seems so exceptional

The things just work out after all

It's just another ordinary miracle today

Sun comes up and shines so bright

And disappears again at night

It's just another ordinary miracle today

It's just another ordinary miracle today

A special shout out to my awesome boyfriend Stefano for taking care of us while I'm sick... and above all, shedding tears to cut my onions at lunchtime. I love you so much... and more.  Yes Seba... mommy loves you too, you little miracle you.


  1. Oooh all of these photos are adorable!! I can't believe he fell asleep like that! Cute cute cute! Thanks for linking up!

  2. Oooh whoops! I totally meant to comment about the 'infant potty training', that is amazing! I wonder how successful it is! I kinda want to try it. Is 8 months old too young?

  3. Hi Mandy =)
    From what I've read, 8 months is definitely not too young! Most sites say you can start between birth and 4 months -- birth? Uhhh... a million pees/poops a day? BRAVE.
    We just started trying it out occasionally.. we're not fully committed with a no diaper wearing baby...yet?!
