I Guess It's Time
Wanting to be like big sister today, she asked to wear panties. Not the training underwear though, she wanted Belle underwear. So we started off the day with a pair of training pants under a pair of her sister's princess panties. She had one little accident right off the bat. Then trips to sit on the toilet every 15 minutes, but nothing. She stayed dry all the way until nap time & then back into a diaper she went.
This kid LOVES dum dum suckers. So it was made known that she & Sadie would both get a sucker if Claire could go potty on the toilet. So I kept asking all morning if she needed to go potty & she kept asking is she could have a sucker. We'll get it together, I'm sure.
I've been holding off on potty training this one. Call me lazy. I just was having trouble getting excited about it. But, I'm loving these signs of readiness & training underwear has been added to my shopping list.
Plus, looking at this cute little body in big girl undies & striped socks has really helped cheer me up after I had a really bad mommy moment yelling at my kids for completely recking the cleaning job I spent so much time on this morning. I'll never get ahead with my housework & that just depresses me sometimes. Still, I love my kids like crazy.
