"My belly hurts"

I have heard Summer say those words numerous times over the past week or so. She doesn't really have any other symptoms and is still a rambunctious 2 year old despite the hurting tummy. Yesterday, I decided to take her to the doctor since I also noticed her urine seems a little dark. The doctor didn't really tell us anything, but they are doing a culture and should call tomorrow hopefully. Either way we have to go back in a week for another urine test. In the meantime, I am not really doing anything for her belly because I don't know what to do. I do know that it is a good time to get some good cuddling in. :)

We have been on the go all day and she was asleep when we got home about 20 minutes ago. I carried her to her bed and she asked me why she has to take a nap. I told her because she was sleepy and she said she wasn't, but laid her head down and drifted back off to sleep. I know she is gonna be hungry when she gets up because on the way home she asked if we could go to another restaurant. Of course earlier at Longhorns, she was all "I'm not hungry. When are they going to bring the bread?" She asked that about ten times before we actually got any (which was pretty quickly btw). We don't usually order her a meal because at this point in time, she eats it about 10% of the time. So she eats off mine and Clint's plates. Today she had some chicken and a few well-placed (snuck in :) ) bites of broccoli. She ate at least half the loaf of bread with butter of course. She butters it herself if she can help it. She loves bread (and butter), especially the crusts of pop-tarts. I really wish they made a pop-tart without the fruit. She would be in heaven! I tried to give her some grapes with her lunch, but she had already had some (and 2 turkey slices) on the way to the Rush. So we gave the rest to Daddy. She did not want the banana I offered her on the way home from Target either. Rather, I think she would've preferred a Krystal with ketchup and pickle only. :p I'll see if I can get her to go for the banana again on the way to my Jazzercise class in a few minutes. She has to go with me today which will be a nice surprise for my mom & Tre. Then we will come back home and cook some supper. After that, I hope to sit around and play with her until time for Greys Anatomy.

I might even have a surprise for her because she has not wet the bed since we have been back from Vegas! She has had a few dribbles in her panties when she is too involved in something to stop and pee, but she always apologizes by saying, "I peed in my panties, but I'm sorry." She is so cute when she says it. Today I did tell her no candy today since she didn't stop to go pee when she needed to. She took it like a big girl and has not asked for any since. Even when she saw the peppermints (her favorite) at Longhorn. What a good girl she is! Well, most of the time anyway.

ahhh, we are fighting with the potty training also. If I can get everyone else to follow my liquid's routine, then Emily, would be fine. We do pull ups at night because I cant' deal with cleaning sheets every morning.

Autumn hasn't wet the bed for about 3 or 4 weeks now. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. :)
