I must appologize in advance for the vulgarity of this post. Only a mother would know how proud I am of my baby girl and her accomplishment today. I have been working with Lindsey for the past two weeks on potty training. I told her on the day before we started that she wouldn't be able to wear diapers anymore starting the next day. When she got up that morning, I asked her if she was ready to start wearing her big girl underwear, and she was really excited about it. We had a few accidents, of course, but for the most part she has done pretty well. The last two days, she has even been going pee-pee without me. The only problem that we had was when it came to going poopy. She would never tell me until after she had gone, which makes for a huge mess and trying to clean that up when she is wearing big girl underwear is NOT FUN!! I finally told her that I wouldn't let her wear big girl underwear again until she could go poopy in the potty because I just don't like cleaning up that mess. Finally, I decided that she needed to have a little incentive to go poopy in the potty. We went to Pamida and she picked out a new baby, but she couldn't open it until she had done a poopy in the potty. She got the new baby on Saturday and finally today she got to open the baby. I should have known something was up with her this afternoon because I was trying to get her to take a nap for a whole hour. I was just about to lay down myself when I heard her get up, again, and go into the bathroom. I went to check on her just to be safe, and when I got in there she said to me, "Mommy, I did a GIANT poopy in the potty!" Sure enough, she had done a giant poopy! I am so proud of her! We called Daddy and then we called both Grandmas and then she got to open her Strawberry Shortcake baby. I am just hoping this continues!
