Slice of Life hosted at the
It's been almost two weeks.
Looking back, I can say it was pretty easy. They were ready.
But I can't take all the credit. "They" say not to rush or force the issue.
It started on the one day the girls went to school two weeks ago. They were ready.
"Three other girls were starting, so I included your two girls. Have you started at home?"
"Um, well, no. We've been busy traveling and lots of things going on and . . . "
My excuses poured out. Are they ready now?
The next day we started. It was the push I needed - fearing only the worst.
And we haven't looked back!
We talked about listening to our bodies. Now they tell me when they are ready.
I can't believe I can say this: My three year olds are potty trained! (Almost) no more diapers.
They still need help and our schedule has changed.
Everything takes longer: Before we leave: Let's go to the bathroom and wash hands.
Arrive at destination: Let's go to the bathroom and wash hands.
It's a treat to check out new bathrooms, but we fear those automatic flushers and LOUD dryers!
So, celebrate with us! This is a HUGE milestone and accomplishment.
(A relief too. No pun intended.)
It wasn't so bad -- when they are ready.
We are SO proud of our girls!
(And Momma and Dadda too!)
