We're finally on the potty train....

I don't generally talk about potties and poop and stuff unless someone asks. Or if I'm with my mom, or my Mother in law or my friends who have kids....Ok so I guess I talk about poo and potty more than I'd care too.  But as a general rule of thumb I try to keep it off stuff like Facebook, cause let's face it, I may be SUPER thrilled the Miss Lily has pooped in the big girl potty.  But I can pretty much promise that not a lot of other people do, and surely no one cares as much as I do.

With that I will tell you that potty training has terrified me for as long as I can remember.  And no not just since I had my girls.  But, Like, Forever.  It was one of the things I dread about being a mother, but one of those things that is necessary.  I always thought I'd have her trained by the time she was two....BOY WAS I WRONG.  As it seems, when the time came, it just wasn't as important to me as it once was.  Sure she was showing signs of being interested in it, Heck, a lot of times she'd even pee on the potty and she was even pretty into it for a while.  The plan changed to this last fall.  I was going to try to get her potty trained before Claire was born....then she completely seemed to lose her interest.  So we didn't push it.  But it's getting to be that time.  That special time in a kids life where she wants to do things like ride on the school bus and go to school.  Of COURSE she won't go to school for a while.  But I've told her she can't go until she doesn't have to wear diapers anymore.

But I am proud to report that she is doing AWESOME!  She pretty wears big girl undies all the time when we are home now other than during naptime and bedtime.  She has pooped in the potty a few times, though she ISN'T a fan, so any day now I expect an accident in her Dora Undies.  But that's ok.  Hopefully she'll learn from it and we'll move forward.

I'm so proud of my girl!  Next month she'll start wearing pull ups to daycare!  So exciting!


  1. That's awesome Miranda! I can't wait to start doing that with Kayden. It will be nice once he is out of diapers.

  2. That is fantastic Miranda! She needs to give Matthew some lessons. He did so well for 3 weeks and now we're almost back where we started.
    Go Lily!!!
