The Week of The Potty

As you probably guessed by the title, we are tackling all-out potty-training this week. Little Miss has shown interest in the potty since June or July, and she would go on it sporadically since then. However, for the past few days, she has been telling Curt or me when she needs to go, instead of us constantly asking her if she needs to and hearing, "No, I'm fine." (Not kidding, she really does tell us that. What a character!) So, it's off with the diaper and on with the Dora underwear!

So far so good today. She stayed dry for most of the morning, and there's no pee on my floors, so that's a plus! We figure, if she has an accident, that's okay...she's a newbie at this get-rid-of-the-diaper thing, and she'll eventually learn. The only thing is that we've been giving her Smarties (a.k.a. Farties) as a reward when she goes, and today she's racked up at least 10 so far. Hmmm...time to change the strategy.

She's now waking from her nap, so I better run and get the Dora's on. :o) Pray that this week goes well!

remember when mameta would give us smarties? i'm not even kidding you, but when i have them now, they taste like chalk. but when mameta gave them to me, they tasted like different flavors of fruit.
I'm glad to see danae likes them. keeping tradition alive.
