We've been doing lots of the potty dance at our house this weekend!!!
We've been talking about the potty, sitting on the potty, and even letting our rubber ducky practice pottying in the bathtub! But this weekend, I think things finally started clicking for Lila. Lila stayed with Mim and Pop on Friday night. Saturday before Clay picked her up, she told Mim she needed to "pah-pah", or potty! They rushed in, got her onto the potty seat, and Lila actually tinkled!! They did the potty dance, told Pop and Daddy all about it, and even called me at the hairstylist to share the good news! Lila definitely knew she'd done a GREAT job!!
I rushed to Target on my way home from the salon and picked up a new potty seat that goes on the big potty because that's what Mim has. I always said I'd never use a little potty OR a potty ring, but these aren't the first words of parenting wisdom I've eaten! While at Target, I went on and got another pack of panties, a little stool, and a bag of peanut butter Mim&M's (thus named because we always eat them at Mim's house!). Lila was VERY excited about all of her new potty accessories, but didn't have any success on Saturday night. We woke up today, though and went straight to the potty. She made a tinkle in the potty and got a Mim&M treat!!!! Even better, though, is that Lila is allowed to get her own toilet paper and wipe if she makes a tinkle! Funny enough, that's the biggest treat of all!
Lila had TWO more successful potty trips today! She's definitely still wetting her diapers, and we're nowhere near actually switching to panties yet, but I'm SHOCKED that she's doing this much already! I really thought I was being optimistic thinking she might be ready by Labor Day, but at this rate, who knows what she'll be doing by then!
Lila Jane, Mommy and Daddy are SOOO VERY proud of you!!!
