It's Potty Time!

About 3 weeks ago I decided to try and potty train Aris. I thought she was ready. She thought otherwise. After two days of crying when put on the potty and peeing on the floor I was not ready to force the issue. Monday morning you could have heard the angels singing! Aris woke up, asked for big girl panties and well the rest is history. Don't get me wrong, there have been a few accidents here and there, but for the most part she has done great. She looks so small on the potty. I have to help her up and she wants so badly to use the potty without the big girl seat. She has tried only to find that she almost falls in! Her buns are just too tiny. After a few close calls she is now okay to sit on the little seat. I Can hardly wait to have all my girls in panties. It will be so nice to only buy diapers for night time. I'm really glad I didn't push the issue. It's nice to know she is ready for this next stage. It does make me the slightest bit sad that we will no longer have a baby in our home. Sniff sniff.

So, you totally inspired me to buy big girl panties for B! She loves them - we have had 2 liquid accidents - but one was my fault because she was in the bathroom saying 'potty' and I was to distracted to comprehend - way to go mom ~ LOL
Talk to you soon, oh, and the pumpkin illustrations are better than I had imagined!

we are still rather hit or miss here, but on our way and that is good enough for me!
