Potty Training Day 3: Oops and Yay!

We've had a few slip-ups today; a few "almost got there but had to change the underwear" anyway.

And then there was one big Oops when Mummy decided she needed some alone time reading and having a chai while everyone else chilled in the basement.  Not long after that, Hope appeared sobbing, underwear and pants soaked.  It took a lot of coaxing (read: bribery) to get her back in her underwear. She was begging me for a diaper and saying she didn't like being a big girl.  A bit heartbreaking to hear but I persevered and forced those underwear back on her.  

We were almost through a game of hide and seek when I noticed a wet spot (again... ugh!) on the back of Hope's pants.  I whisked her into the bathroom and put her on the toilet where she deposited..... a poop!  Hurray Hope!  Too bad about the pee but so great about the poop!

I sure hope that it turns around for the peeing.  I want to spend a day out of this GD house!  I've been locked in for three days straight and tomorrow is Mother's Day and my birthday and dammit if if I'm spending it inside these four walls.

The potty training thing is tricky. For our daughter, it was very quick and relatively easy. For our son, a whole difference ballgame...GOod luck! And Happy Birthday!
