We've been potty training Jaina for a couple of weeks. It's amazing what waiting can do. The first time we tried, things did not go well. It was three days of pure torture. She's doing awesome this time around. We've only have a couple of accidents. It's still diapers or Pull-Ups for sleeping and outings (except for a couple of meetings when she's kept her undies on). The only problem is the #2. She hasn't quite got the hang of that yet. :( She's also very, very stubborn. Sometimes she flat out refuses to put underwear on.
Funny things she's said while potty training:
"Mom! It's not coming out!"
"It's empty. It's not coming out"
Ask her if she has to go and she says, "No, I'm good!"
One cool thing this time around is that she already takes herself potty and does everything herself. Sometimes Ava helps her which is sweet.
"Don't hug me! You have icky, gross fingers!"
"I won't never do dat never never never again!"
Sleeping Beauty is "Feeping Gooey"
"What er doing?"
"Why you so bossy, Ava? I mean, princess."
"Jaina, don't pull of of the toys out. That's naughty."
"Of course it's naughty. Don't bank (spank) me."
"She's feeping in she's bed."
"She's putting she's clothes on."
"I wanna giant watte!" (latte)
This girl is something else. When you tell her not to do something she laughs and thinks it's super funny. Drives us crazy. If you discipline further, she melts down and cries and cries. No happy medium.
She loves loves loves to go on walks with Daddy.
Ava kissed a boy - on the lips.
"Ava, why did you kiss Kaleb?"
"Well, I tried to stop but I couldn't because he was just so handsome! And then he ran away because I was so beautiful."
"Thanks for running with me tonight."
"You're welcome. It was actually kind of fun!"
"I just wish you would wear tennis shoes..."
"Umm yeah. That's not gonna happen. Kids are just full of life, aren't they Mom?"
"So Mom, is Victoria going to be your pretend sister?"
"Mom, can you turn on some classical music? Like violin music? And turn it up real loud."
(For some reason this makes me very, very happy)
Both girls are in bed by at 8 pm (or earlier depending how I'm feeling) and up at 7 am. Jaina takes one nap in the afternoon.
Oscar is so very close to crawling.
