Alright, I am feeling a bit more energetic today and I don't feel like I am going to end up crashed on my computer. Well... if you don't know, I am a nanny 5 days a week. The kids are 9, 7, 5, and 2. I have been nannying for the same family for three years. I aided in potty training the five year old, but being pregnant I was DETERMINED to get the two (she really isn't two until tomorrow) potty trained. After a few weeks of "lets try to sit on the potty" and "make the poopy face" I decided to go FULL THROTTLE! Well... I did a bit of research, because I am determined to have her potty trained before little baby Edmonds arrives. I read a post (via Pinterest) about it taking a few days, and she literally became a nudist. haha. Stella was showing definite signs that she was ready, so Karmon and I made a plan! No diapers, Pull-Ups during travel, and naked at home. Well.. I was prepared to be cleaning pee and poo off the floor the first couple of days. I must say, we are blessed that Stella doesn't enjoy messes. She tinkled a few times on the floor, but ran to the potty to finish peeing. We had NO poo on the floor!!! WOO HOO! So, after three days of success at home, I decided we should venture out. She knew when she had to go, and she wasn't afraid to do it in public places. So... we headed to Lattes and Lollipops, peed before we left, peed when we got there, and she stayed DRY while playing for an hour, and peed when she was done playing. SUCCESS!!! It is so amazing to me how much easier it was to work with Stella than it was with Hudson three years ago. I went into it prepared and ready to clean. I stuck to my guns, and she is officially potty trained. Karmon is still working on the night time potty training, and if I can catch her before she falls asleep (usually in the car) she can stay dry during her nap. I am relieved! We still have 4.5 MONTHS to perfect it! YAY! It was eventful and full of hilarious runs to the potty, but successful. Just some funny photos from the potty training success. She enjoys the nakedness. Next we need to work on taking off our panties. It is harder than you think!
And... we must end on this adorable picture of Stella wearing Shrek ears. How cute... <3
