Just a quick update on the potty training saga -- because I know you all are interested. (ha!)
I have to admit, I am pleasantly surprised by how well it is going. Sure, we have an accident here or there, but that is to be expected. For the most part, however, things are working.
But -- that is maybe because I am so paranoid of Anna having an accident that I take her about every 1.5 - 2 hours. I am sure she can go longer, but just find it easier to take her, than to change her after an accident. And, pretty much every time I take her she goes - so it is not like a wasted trip.
Also, since mid-April we have spent just about every evening and weekend at baseball and softball games. Talk about a potty training challenge! Some ballparks have adequately clean facilities. But others -- gag!! I would almost rather Anna have an accident than have to take her into one of those port-a-potties.
But we are persevering and rewarding ourselves for a job well done so far! :)
Our next big potty training challenge will be when we go on vacation. We will be traveling by car, and I have no idea how frequently we are going to have to stop to avoid accidents. And should I put a plastic bag or a towel on the seat of her carseat just in case? We will be pulling our camper, so finding a potty will not be an issue -- we just have to pull over. I am sure this will make for an interesting update when we get back. :)
Happy 8th Birthday Colin!
