Lo hicimos! We Did It!

September 16, 2008

We did it, we did it, we did it, hooray! (Sorry, it’s been a lot of Dora the Explorer books/movies/games/pretend play these days.) So it’s been a week and things are looking good.

On Monday we made it out of the house with no accidents. We went to our favorite wholesale club to purchase more wipes and pull-ups, among other things. After entering the store, A. said she wanted to go home. When I asked her why, it came out that what she really wanted was to go potty. So we had our first experience at a public potty. The best news ever – both girls stayed dry the ENTIRE morning of errands AND went without prompting from me when we got home.

Which mean today is the third day in a row that they’ve stayed dry all morning. Things kind of break down at naptime where someone will inevitably poop or pee in their pull up. Which is fine because night/sleep training is a whole ‘nother ball of wax. But the fact that I can’t remember the last accident is probably a good sign, right? I can, however, clearly remember every.single.time. I’ve had to clean out the potties. Did I mention we have three? Two downstairs and one in the bathroom upstairs. Did I mention that we don’t have a bathroom on the first floor? So every time someone pees I have to run upstairs, empty the potty, clean the potty and run downstairs just in time for potty #2 to be filled. I think I’ve found a new weightloss program. It would be a huge success if potty candy wasn’t distributed in the following manner: 1 for pee, 2 for poo, and 3 for mommy.

    YOU DID IT! Whooo Hoooo!
    So proud of all of you.
    (Does potty candy continue even after all the training is over??)

    At this rate you better have a good dental plan.

    Thanks for the comment. It means a lot since I’m not really involved in the “kid world” in our area.
