Gray hair, ice cream, and potty training

Today I colored my hair, and then highlighted it -- what I want to know is how in the HECK I could do two processes to my hair and STILL miss that big old gray hair that is in the front of my head????

We got Zack a potty chair today and he loves it but I am not entirely sure he realizes what it's for. No successes yet, as we're more interested in his getting used to it, but it's funny to see him push it all over the house and sit on it to watch television.

This whole motherhood thing -- it's the most fun, and the most frustrating thing I've ever done. I have NO idea what the heck I'm doing (still) and am in constant fear that I'm doing it all wrong. Especially when I see that my friend's kids are doing things Zack isn't yet. I know, I know, "all kids do things in their own time" but it doesn't stop me from worrying.

Oh, and finally tried to exercise today -- first time since surgery. That was short-lived, but at least I didn't have any huge expectations for how long I could keep it up. I guess the important thing is that I've started again.

And what to do with a husband who could care less what I weigh? I tell him, please don't buy any more ice cream, I have no will power. So for two weeks, I've had no ice cream, and been soooo good about it. Then yesterday, Rick comes home with a pint of Ben and Jerry's "The Gobfather" and well hell. And what's even worse -- I just saw on their web site that my favorite flavor of all time, "Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough", may be resurrected from their Flavor Graveyard.


So I guess it's good that I started exercising again.
