Guess What Lily Did!
That's right, folks, she went pee pee on the potty!! (And, yes, one day, years and years from now, she will be very angry with me for this post, but for now, I'm just a proud Mama!)
Lily has recently begun to show interest in the potty so I decided it was time to try. With Han we were able to use the toilet insert-thingy. When you are as tiny as Lil, the toilet is rather big and well, Lil wanted nothing to do with it. To get past this, we instead bought a potty seat. In fact, we bought one for downstairs and one for upstairs. While we were looking for the potty (may I tell you how hard it was to find a nice, simple, PLAIN one? I found this one and this one. Could I find a nice, simple plain one with no bells and whistles? Not without a good deal of searching. Finally, we found a simple, plain one and as I was loading it in the cart, Lil noticed the "big girl panties" on the other side of the cart. She demanded the Tinkerbell panties and couldn't wait to get home and put them on!
Lil stripped the diaper off as soon as we got in the door and DEMANDED the panties. As I was putting them on her, I reminded her again and again that if she needed to go pee pee she needed to go to the potty. I showed her where the potty was and once again reminded her she needed to use the potty if she had to pee pee. Dani and I hit the road to pick up lunch and left a panties-clad Lil is Brien's care. When we returned we noticed Lily had on a new pair of pants...um, yeah. No sooner had we left the house than Lil had her first accident.
We put her in a diaper for nap time and after her nap she DEMANDED her "Tinker panties" once again. :oP Dani and I had to dash out again while B prepared dinner, but not before once again reminding Lil that if she needed to pee pee she needed to use the potty. When Dani and I returned, we were greeted with a naked bum winking at us as Lily helped her Daddy cook. It seems Lily objected to wet pants and Croc-Crocs...
We sent her upstairs for a diaper and she returned with...her third and final pair of panties. Hm. She made it accident free for the rest of the evening. We didn't ask if she had to use the potty, we just told her she needed to sit on the potty for a few minutes. Before we watched "Shaun the Sheep" we put her on her potty and she sat for a moment, stood up and said, "Dere's the pee pee!" And, there it was indeed. To all the family we called, thank you for your enthusiasm. I'm hoping this keeps up! :fingers crossed:
My baby is growing up. She's wearing panties, sleeping in her big girl bed again tonight, jabbering away. I'm so proud, and yet, I miss my baby.
1. Lil picked up one of the DS games this evening, and very scarily, managed to get Mario to move and jump. It's quite frightening how quickly kiddos are picking up on technology these days!
2. Dani's here!!
3. Lil got a new hat today--one she selected. :o) As we were walking through Target, she said, "I need a hat." "Which hat, Lil?" "Dis one!" "Um, which one? This one?" "No, DAT one. The one with the sparklies!" Yup. I have another sparkly girl! :o)
4. The world's best margarita. Ahhhhh. There is nothing like them anywhere. I'm so spoiled I will no longer order a margarita in a restaurant.
5. "My Big Fat Greek Wedding". This movie makes me laugh so much--I LOVE it! :o)
Speaking of which, I'm off to enjoy the movie! :o)
