Tomorrow is another day

It's early, but so far, today is better than yesterday. Aaron is here, distracting William while I try to get some work done. We created a Good Behavior chart, and so far, William seems eager to live up to it. So cross your fingers.

And I feel it's only fair to report that we did have one small victory yesterday. Frustrated with being alone in the house with William, I ordered him into the car to run some errands with me after an early dinner. It was only when we were about to leave that I remembered he was wearing underpants. But we went out anyway, and guess what? He stayed dry the whole time. We did make a short pitstop in the bathroom of Bed, Bath & Beyond, and William willingly went potty. And we made it home with no incidents (of the potty variety).

One day at a time, one day at a time, da da da da, one day at a time.

You've done exactly the right thing! Call in the Grandparents at these times!
I'm not a parent, but I do have an extremely large minor in early childhood education.
Children are exhausting period! Whether they are being good or pushing you to pull your hair out, they are exhausting.
Your friend is right - time to call in the Grandparents and take a mini vacation. Go get a massage -- something just for you. You deserve it. You're the best mom William could possibly have!
