I certainly didn't want to start the process before Disney World, and once our KY road trip was finished I felt like I needed to suck it up and give it a go before I came up with another excuse.
So today was day one. And it sucked. Well, mostly.
By dinner time the score card looked like this:
Carpeted Floor: 1
Carpeted Stairs: 1
Dining Room Chair: 1
Nap time diaper: 1
Potty Chair: 0
I was completely discouraged and ready to (already) throw in the towel for now and try again in a few months. That was exactly my plan if nothing happened by the end of the night. The girls and I had prayed that Rosie would have at least one successful "catch" today, so I figured if it didn't happen it was a sign from God, right? :)
And then it happened. Just before bedtime, Rosie peed in the little potty chair! Our prayer had been answered. One success. I was encouraged. The big girls were ecstatic.
Then as we were heading upstairs to put on their pajamas, she started whining "potty" again. I didn't have the little chair with me upstairs, so I set her on the big potty and I couldn't believe it -- she pooped in the big potty! Two successes!
