A REALLY Big One

"That was a really big one!"
"It won't come out!"
"Silly poop, it's in my pee!"

Just some of the gems the noodle has come up with lately.  BUT....it's official!  We are potty-trained!  All the way, I'm talking about.  Daytime, night-time, going out in public - ALL OF IT.  FINALLY!!!!!!!!!

So lots of people had been pressuring us for a while to get her trained.  Well, I have my own way of doing things.  I read all of the books, and lets not forget that little psych degree I have, but regardless, I know my kid.  She wasn't ready.  She regressed so much when we brought the twins home that every time we tried to train her, she just wasn't interested.  But now that the twins are older it was a breeze.  They don't get babied so much and so she doesn't think she needs to be either.  It took a solid month, but wow, we don't even do pull-ups anymore.  Woo-hoo!!!!!

I think it was the old-school training pants that did it.  My sister-in-law gave us some cloth ones, and they really seemed to do the trick.  Pull-ups are just too much like diapers - the cool alert and learning designs just don't do the same trick as being soaking wet.

ANYWAY, we are one down, and two to go.  Diaper free is the way to be!!!!
