It was a rough three days but we all managed to get through it with Tyler having less accidents and Tyler coming up with gems such as, “Pee pee coming out!” and “I’m listening to my body.”
I sent him to school in Pull-ups today but spoke with his teacher and she said we should try “big boy” underwear tomorrow! This is a victory because he does better at school than he does at home. So tomorrow, armed with several pairs of underwear, socks, shoes and clothes, we will give it a go!
Something very cute to come out of this weekend: Tyler insisted on standing up to pee, and we have never taught him that! And his aim seems even better than his father’s! I’m so proud of my little man.

Emily Cullen is a pen-name.
I suffer from chronic illnesses and diseases which include Bipolar Disorder, Asthma, Diabetes and Fibromyalgia. I had battled Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis but there is no longer evidence of me having these diseases and my Rheumatologist has declared them to be "burnt out" of my system.
I am separated from my husband, “Grant”. Our son, “Tyler” was born in September of 2006 and suffers from tics and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and is delayed in fine and gross motor skills.
In my blog I seek to let sick moms know that they are not the only ones going through this, and to educate people about what can happens when one becomes catastrophically ill. I also strive to break down stereotypes of what a “Welfare Mom” is like. Anything that I have gone through due to being sick, is written on the pages of Mama Sick.
