I know everyone is on pins and needles waiting to hear about the progress of the girls’ potty training. Hahaha just indulge me please! Writing about it helps ease my frustrations! Arlene is CLOSE but Lydia is not. I have placed that HigglyTown Hero toy I wrote about on top of the fridge and I told the girls that when they can keep their pullups completely dry for an entire day they can have it! Arlene will get it first, but it might be awhile. She does really good but then craps out (literally) toward the end of the day. I wish there was a potty-training academy that I could send them to. I’d pay. I’d pay lots. How awesome would it be to take them somewhere where someone can perform magic and suddenly, the girls say, “Mommy, I have to go pee-pee!” BEFORE they actually go and they actually MAKE it to the toilet and I don’t have to change diapers or pull ups anymore and I don’t have to buy diapers or pull ups or wipes any more and I don’t have to keep asking, every 17 minutes, “do you have to go potty? do you? did you already go?!?!” Ooooo, sweet fantasies. Sweet, sweet fantasies.
