Okay, I'm hoping to be done with the potty-training posts after this. But for those of you who may not have been reading my "Operation: Panties" updates on my side-bar, I thought I'd quickly fill you in on the what's-what over here.
The first two days were h-o-r-r-i-b-l-e and very discouraging as I cleaned up accident after accident all over my kitchen and living room floors -- thank goodness for laminate and linoleum! I was wondering how we were ever going to get this feat accomplished and I thought maybe we had started too soon.
But I wasn't going back!
And then, suddenly, the light got turned on. And it just clicked for her. Well, except for -- pardon the terminology -- pooping (although she insists that today she will NOT poop in her panties...we'll see).
But I haven't cleaned up a wet accident since Thursday, which means that she has been dry for five days in a row (including her naps)! And that means I can now let her roam around the house again with her sister. No more keeping her confined to the main floor so she's always within arm's reach of me and the bathroom.
And you know what else? I don't even have to take her to the potty every hour to make sure she doesn't have an accident. She tells me when she needs to go. She will suddenly smile and say, "Go potty!" and we'll rush off to the bathroom and she'll do her thing.
Whoo-hoo! Nearly potty-trained within one week. I'm so proud of my big girl. As much as I sometimes wish time would stand still -- see the post below for a perfect example of this -- the diaper stage is one that I will never miss!!
