Today we finally got the Nissan Sentra fixed. The problem turned out to be something tiny - a pin was loose on the pressure switch. That resulted in the car not starting - no clicking, nothing.

Brennan is getting increasingly stubborn about having his own way. He's a sweetheart most of the time, especially when he has an audience, but then there are those dark times he will absolutely will not listen and get in to as much trouble as he can. Those are the times he spends a lot of time in his room because it's always my final resort when he just won't cooperate. Plus we can't use the gate any more because he climbs over it. Arghhh. It makes me feel like such a bad parent when I put him in his room and shut the door but I don't know what else to do when he gets unmanageable. And it used to work - a few minutes spent playing on his own usually cured whatever bug bit him. But now it's no use - I let him back out and he's right back at it again. So the entire day is spent chasing him around keeping him out of trouble and letting him back in and out of his room. Arghhh. Is there a better way? If not, will it end soon?

He's been pulling his diaper off for a while now and I'm told that means he's ready to start potty training so we've been letting him watch us in the bathroom but he seems to have no interest in it. I guess the next thing to try will be a potty chair and a potty training doll. The best thing to probably do is just wait for him to show interest in doing it, though. In the mean time we need to start making sure he goes to bed with pants on so he can't take off his diaper in the morning.
