Writing an introduction for Guess The Theme is always difficult because I usually use the introduction to explain how I got the idea for that day's post. I supposed I could do that with Guess The Theme but it would take a bit of the fun out of the quiz.
It's especially difficult this week as, between the puppy and my little boy, my life entirely revolves around poo. It seems to be when I'm not toilet training, I'm changing a nappy. Glamorous, I know. As those of you who follow me on Twitter (hello!) may know, I've been getting stressed with the toilet training this week. The problem is Merlin hates the rain, so at the first sign of bad weather he stops going in the garden and starts going on the carpet. On Wednesday I decided I wasn't having that, so all day I watched him like a hawk and at the first sign of a squat I'd scoop him up and rush him out to the garden, where he'd sniff about a bit and then look at me as though to say 'what do you want from me?!' After 8.5 hours the deadlock was broken by Merlin sneaking away and pooing on the hall carpet. So I guess he won that battle of wills... I was much more relaxed about things yesterday and, you know what? Apart from one accident he was a little angel all day. I think there must be a moral in there somewhere. Something about not trying too hard perhaps...
