AS I SEE IT: Impatiently waiting for spring
Snow is sheeting off my neighbor’s roof as I sit at the desk thumbing through Soft Surroundings’ spring catalog. I can’t find a thing I want, and that’s never a good sign. What’s the use of thumb shopping when it looks like there might not even be a spring this year? But then comes the rolling thunder, and I half expect the snow to rearrange itself into a swirling spring funnel. Hamlet would say the time is out of joint, and I’d have to agree for a number of reasons.
In addition to this ongoing abominable weather, I personally have been plagued by a number of both literal and figurative out-of-joint events including a near-fatal trip to Bed Bath & Beyond.

Stay the course with potty training
Q: I’ve been using the method described in your toilet-training book with my 18-month-old daughter and she’s been doing great during the day. She rarely has an accident. However, I’m still using a diaper at nap-time and during the night (waiting for some consistency in dryness before taking that away). Is that correct? The only problem is she’s figured out the routine and now only poops in her diaper when I put her down to sleep. She has not gone poop on the potty during the day for several weeks. Is that cause for concern? Should I take away the diapers totally? I don’t want to create a bad habit. Thanks!
Iris Lochner remains young at heart
It was a hot humid afternoon in August when my 9-year-old grand daughter had asked me to drive her to the Fine Arts Institute of Edmond to find out about the Edmond Youth Chorus. I didn’t want to go. I was tired, my energy depleted from the 100-degree heat. But I took her, mentally griping the whole way.
