Superstar

I don't mean to brag here about my little girl...but uh, I guess that all a blog really is? Okay, it's more than that. But here's what I want to say:

This past week, Lucy has been a superstar at our house. She really impressed me.
She was potty trained by DAY 2! She hasn't had an accident since! The first day we went through 8 pairs of underwear. And since then, 1 pair a day. She tells me, "mom, I need to go potty"....and we go. She's even gone at the nasty park bathrooms a few times.
Great job Lucy!
I was prepared for THE worst (poop on the floor, pee all over the couch). And though I know that kids can regress even months after they're trained, I just can't believe how easy it all was with her. The candy incentive helped. But overall I think she was just older and ready for it. We packed the little potty away this weekend and now she's only going on the big toilet.

She's still wearing a pull-up at night, so we'll be tackling that one of these days. Thank you little lady for making my life a little easier!

I am SO happy for you, that is not common! That sounds like a fairytale potty training story right there, sweet though for you! I wish Marce would get potty trained. He's almost ready, I know it, just not quite commited. I envy you for the money you're saving on those dumb size 6 diapers...ENVY!

Wow, you are a potty pro. Can you come train mine?

Joe and Marci said...

You should be proud :) What a huge milestone...I'm sure it'll stick too, with no accidents. Usually once my kids get it, they get it...well, at least the girls...

She really has done amazingly well!! YAY Lucy!!

I am all for potty training at 3 years--it worked for us with no accidents. It just seems like they're old enough to get it at that age.

YAY for not having to buy diapers...well, except for Owen.

That's awesome. Every mom likes to hear success stories like this one! Congrats to little Lucy.

btw, we're still in pull ups at night and she's been potty trained for more than 8 months now.

That is so great! I haven't had a whole day to sit and do it with Jillian. I think I need to take some vacation time to make it happen for our little one. I am so happy for you and Lucy. Great job!!

Congrats! I waited until both of the boys were almost three and had a similar experience.

Lettie said...

Is it ok if I say I want to punch you? ;) If only it could be that easy for all of us! Ahhhh!
Seriously though, that is so awesome. Congratulations to both of you. That is an impressive feat. Maybe I should try again.
