alternate title: How we spent our New Years.
Friday, December 31st, I decided (very much on a whim) to purchase the 3 day potty training e-book and go for it. A friend on facebook did it, so I knew we could do it, too.
We spent a lot of time doing mad dashes to the potty…and the entire weekend in the house. In fact, I didn’t leave. And, I stayed in PJs all weekend long.
And, I sound like a broken record "tell mommy when you need to pee, okay?"
We seemed to have a breakthrough Sunday afternoon (when daddy and #1 went to the store…why didn’t I think to kick them out sooner).
I was nervous, but I had to go back to work Monday, so there wasn’t anymore time. I took her to school Monday morning with a bag full of clothes and prayed for the best.
I nervously called at lunch time Monday.
It really worked.
(Well, a couple caveats. Naptimes haven’t been accident free, and after three nights, we went to pullups at night. And, the poo? Still working on that.)
So basically, we crammed all of the accidents and crazy running to the potty trips into one weekend.
And, this is how the weekend was spent. Pants-less. With a drink and a parent nearby. And puzzles. Lots and lots of puzzles.
**I say all of this hoping not to jinx us and this continues!
