A Change Gonna Come

July Blogging Challenge

Over at Paula's Place is a monthly blog challenge for July.  Today is the 8th and the topic at hand is:  
How will your life be different in five years?


Better.  It WILL be better.  It HAS to be better.  

Well, I can say that... but more specifically I'm gonna SWEAR IT!  GOOD LORD IT BETTER BE.

I have a Benji.  He is three.  In five years he will be EIGHT.  That means he will be IN SCHOOL FIVE DAYS A WEEK and, more importantly, POTTY TRAINED!  (Shut up... he WILL be... He BETTER BE!)

Eight years old!  That will be lovely because we can DO THINGS... like... go ANY where without the worry of him --ooooooh, I don't know pulling out weaves or screaming at the top of his lungs in the grocery store or running away from you down the aisles of Target.... 

Better because VACATIONS will NOT be a thing of the past.  He will be transportable.  It'll be much easier since he will understand.

Yes, that ... THAT in and of itself will be SO WONDERFUL!

In five years, however, I will have one kiddo going into his SENIOR YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL and THAT makes me... sad!  :(

So, we're not going to focus on that.  We're going to focus on the GOOD and POSITIVE potty trained not harassing the four-legged-fur-babies-at-every-cost aspect of this question.  Yes.  Yes we are!

Poor, poor baby! He must be a handful!
