2 down, 1 to go

I was blown away this weekend with an unexpected shock.....JORDYN POTTY-TRAINED HERSELF. Friday afternoon Jordyn pulled out her little toilet and pooped ON the toilet, literally. She didn't open the lid to poop in it. Even though there was a mess to clean up we still praised her like crazy doing the "pooh-pooh dance" and giving her potty candy. (The things parents make up to motivate kids.) We kept her naked pretty much the rest of the day and then Saturday. Sunday Jeff thought I was a little nuts that I put underwear on Jordyn to church instead of a pull-up or diaper, but I thought I would take her to the bathroom every 30-45 minutes. During nursery the teacher said Jordyn came up to her to tell her she had to go pee several times and she took her and all was well. I was stoked that she didn't have an accident and asked an adult, her nursery teacher, to help her go to the bathroom. She's done great today and we've had no accidents. I'm sure we'll have some accidents in the future, but she has the concept down and I have one less child that I need to buy diapers for and need to change. It is like Jordyn's favorite book, Mooseltoe says, "it was so simple, so easy, so perfectly perfect." This experience was a breath of fresh air unlike Sydney's potty-training days when she had her bowel issues. Two down, 1 to go (in 2-3 years of course and a BOY. That will be a whole new experience with a boy).

YAY!!! That is awesome! Boys are not fun to potty train. I am not looking forward to training the next one.

Cherish this because boys are the worst to potty train- at least mine were. Congrats though- that's awesome!

What can I say? She is brilliant! The boy issue… ah yes. You need to get one of those boy potty seats. They take care of unpredictable trajectories.
