Back to topic ... potty training success

In a return to appropriate subject matter at this venue (and calm my one in-house reader who knows more than two dozen sight words), our official announcement of Alysse's potty-trained status.

Well, potty trained in the category of number ones. She still holds out on the number twos until she's safely in a diaper for nap time, and proceeds upon awaking. This is new territory for the potty trainers, as in our previous experiences the two numbers went hand-in-hand.

We're still working on a method by which to get her to spend enough time sitting still on the potty to complete all jobs. However, with the exception of two diapers daily (one during naps and one overnight) she's footloose and diaper free. Yeah Alysse!

P.S. Today I'm grateful for:

  • a little boy who is too cute for words in a baseball cap.
  • Alivia's wonderful behavior today (as of late she's been struggling to keep her birthday/school excitement contained).
  • a trip to, through and home from Jungle Jim's without a potty accident by Alysse.
  • Alena's love of any artsy project (glue, marshmallows and popsicle sticks make her happy).
  • a husband who has researched the pros and cons of Ohio's Issue 6.
  • a mother who reads this blog ... the good, the bad and the ugly.
