Reward system in potty training

Doing potty training is such a challenging work for a full-time stay at home mother. As per my experience with the kid, he is already potty trained. So glad to find about this baby prepping. He can pee on his own by visiting the bathroom anytime he wants to. He also says that pull up diapers is yucky to wear. But there is one more thing that he needs to do, and that is to p** whenever he needs to. He doesn’t like p**ping for the reason that it’s icky and yucky (according to him). He also says that he is scared of pooping and he doesn’t like it. So, I told him that even if he doesn’t like it, but he needs to do it because it cleans up his body from the revolting poop. So, to help him do his thing, I need to give him rewards because if I just leave him alone in going from one corner to another in trying to hold his p**, it will reach him days before he will let go of it. What I will usually trick him is I will give him some nice band-aid like Dora band-aid that he calls it as his sticker. Though sometimes if he is not being rewarded with candies before doing his bathroom work, I will also reward him with two pieces of candies!

All in all, I am so thankful that he is already a potty trained kid. And hope he will not hold his p** anymore. Hope he will go whenever he needs to p** in the bathroom without saying he doesn’t like it.

MacDonalds Filmore Colorado Springs

I took this photos when my kids and I were able to pass by at Filmore Colorado springs. My kids were planning that if this MacDonald will open again this September (hopefully), they will be dining in there. They are also hoping to have a play area in this fast food branch. Hope this will have a play area as kids love to play and it will be a great attraction to this busy MacDonald’s branch.

Thanks jet dot com for the quick refund

Thanks, Jet.com for the refund of my returned items. I appreciate it a lot. It was nice shopping in this online store that offers discounts for every item. I will be purchasing more stuff in this store soonest. I love shopping at jet dot com as it offers free shipping and free return.

Talking of return, I just visited the nearby FedEx store at Citadel Colorado Springs, gave them my items, and they printed the acceptance receipt. Then I waited for this refund. And at that particular date (screenshot belo), jet dot com refunded me. It is always fun to shop online!

New bedroom look

Now, this is the new look kids’ bedroom! The girl loves the loft bed except that she’s not safe on it as there are times that she will stand up and get down from her bed in the middle of the night. I just bought a 30″ wide day bed for her. I tried to check the update of my order, and it says that it will arrive this Friday. I hope the mattress is not cheap as it is not a twin mattress and I cannot just buy a replacement here in town as it will just an online order. To make it a little feminine looking bed, I’ll try to find and buy pink day bed accessories for it.

Returning another mattress in a box and a pink day bed

Yesterday I returned one day bed through FedEx and today I will return this mattress in a box again. Online shopping is convenient, but then I cannot feel the texture and see the original product. Since the return is free, I’ll just send this today. With the pink day bed, I love that one except that it won’t fit under the loft bed. How I wish the house is bigger so that my kids can have a bigger room for each of them. On the other hand, I am thankful that there is a house for my family to live with the hope that someday somehow we can have a better place to stay.

Returning the twin quilted mattress

I ordered loft bed and a day bed online the other week with mattresses in Jet. The one that arrived yesterday was the mattress, but since the price was low, the materials were cheap. The mattress wasn’t packed with plastic as it was just folded thrice and placed it inside this big box. The top and the bottom of the box was lacking tape. When I returned it, I made sure that there’s a tape around the box so that the mattress will be clean enough upon receipt of the seller of Jet. Another thing was that I kept on sneezing whenever I get near the mattress. I just didn’t know why. Oh well!

And so I printed a return address last Saturday and shipped the box to the FedEx office before 6 pm last Sunday. I just carried the box in the office by myself as it wasn’t heavy. Then the female staff thought that I was so strong because I just carried the big box without using the trolley. I told her that the box wasn’t heavy. And yes I am strong because I can carry 50kgs or more. Anyway, I returned the mattress for free. I hope I can have the refund as soon as possible.

Room clean up – my kids are happy to use this room

This is the then and now photo of the extra room in the house. I did my best to clean it before the school year starts last Monday. I am thankful that my kids are able to use it these days. Though, they are still trying to adjust to the aura of the room but I know they are happy to use this space. They are still using their old beds. In the coming days, there will be a mini loft bed and a day bed for them. Hopefully, it will arrive soon so that I can assemble it. I hope it will fit in this area coz I cannot remove the closet on the other side. I’d love to remove the closet to give them more space but well, it’s not my house. Also, it says that if closet is removed it will lessen the value of the house. So, I’d better utilize the space that is available and I am thankful for it because this house gives us comfort to live whole year round for all these years. Thank God that I am able to clean this room after all the years of living in this place. Blessings!

#Lightdow LD4000 1080P #HD #SportsActionCamera Bundle

I bought this #Lightdow LD4000 1080P #HD #SportsActionCamera Bundle with DSP:NT96650 Chip, 1.5-Inch LPS-TFT LCD, 170° Wide Angle Lens and Bonus Battery as a gift for my daughter. I also bought a blue one for my son. They love to take videos and with this, they can do it anytime they want. With these #sportsactioncamera, they will not be begging to borrow some cellphone for the videos that they are going to make.

I love these #actioncamera coz it’s small and it will just fit in the palm. It will take good movies and good photos but it will depend on the person that’s using it. With this video, it’s my daughter and my son who’s testing it when they visited the park yesterday. And they’re having fun.

Anyway, these cameras are so affordable and within my budget. I am so glad my kids love these.

Recycling – an environmentally friendly act

When others are posting about how they renovated their house and all of the good things, me, I am posting that I am recycling things. In fact, I posted that I bring all of the unused goodies at a junk shop and I earned $3.50. I am not shy of recycling. At least I am making an environmentally friendly act of throwing the trash at the right place. I cannot get back the original price of my treadmill because it was a rotten thing that’s been sitting outside since 2010. That treadmill cost me almost 600 bucks, and I hadn’t use it because the day that plugged it, it was not functioning. And that time, I did not know how to return things because I still didn’t know how to drive. My exercise bike cost me almost a 100 bucks, but it was okay. Lots of stuff I brought to junk shop today, and I think that will be it for the year. I could throw it at the dumpster, but I was curious of the fee that the junk shop will give to me because those were heavy metals. Even if it didn’t pay for my gasoline, but I was happy with my experience. At least, I am wiser on my next purchases.

$3.50 from recycling some unwanted things – Thank you Lord God for the blessings

Oh dear, from May to August

This was my last post about my own expenses. OMG, from that time, I over spent and over shared. This has to stop from now on until I can recover from my finances. I just love to share a lot but with my case, I need to recover first from what I’ve been through. I am just thankful that God is sending good people who are giving me work to do. But I need to save more. Until then, I’ve got to keep things to pay off everything! Oh dear God, please be with me always!
