I like positive energy, and to me that's not just a phrase or emoticon. I like when people around me are happy and having fun, and I do my best to bring a lightness of being and a good vibe to the table.
After the dinner at Joanne's and the uncomfortable bus ride I just wanted to relax and have some fun and make the most of the weekend at Mohegan Sun. I'm not the type to hold grudges or let my personal feelings ruin a trip for everyone around me. Well karma didn't fail me, and I was on fire at the blackjack table! Even Carole stayed out without Bethenny to hang out with me and Lady Luck!
After avoiding one sh--storm, I went home to another: potty training, the least enjoyable milestone of all toddler milestones. I potty trained Jagger with the help of some parenting books and lots of unsolicited advice from friends and family, but this time around I brought in the big guns! I'm aware of the negative comments that are on their way about this and my son's sudden potty mouth (it's always great when your kid says something horrifying in public, let alone national television!). Mom fails and judgments aside, with the help of Samantha Allen, the potty whisperer, Rio was potty trained in two days flat, never another diaper, pull-up or accident during the day or night! I mean, say what you will about hiring a professional potty trainer but that is impressive! We all had fun with the process and definitely some laughs along the way. If there's anything my friends know about me is that I try to live life to the fullest and with as much love and laughter as possible. Never underestimate the power of my kindness and lighthearted humor in life. It goes a long way.
