Potty Update

The good new: The sisters are in full potty train mode.
The bad news: Daddy is leaving in a couple of days and I will be ON MY OWN! With them. Not completely potty trained! Oh man, oh man.

Joseph has been AMAZING and has worked so hard potty training the sisters this past week. I have always been impressed and in awe of the fact that he trained both boys, but am even more impressed and in awe that he can also add the twins to his resume!

Love pretty much used the same methods that he implemented with the boys, with the exception of rewards. The boys were rewarded with anything with sugar. The sisters have an affection for chocolate. they are motivated by chocolate.

Works when you are 2 and training for the potty.
Doesn't work when you are 32 and training for a marathon.

In case you were wondering.

Now, I wouldn't say that the girlies are 100% potty trained, but I they are doing really well. Ella even told me that she had to go potty while in the bath tub last night! Initially, Ella was the one who was rockin' the potty. She has since digressed and Lily Kate is rockin' it now.

So, yes they are both still a little shaky, but we have progressed WAY too far to go back now.

I will not let my man down.

I can do this.
I can do this.
I can do this...
...I think.

YAY for potty progress! I was wondering how it was going. Sorry to hear Joseph will be leaving in a couple of days, but.....

You CAN do this, you CAN do this, you CAN do this. *wink*

Yeah - hang it there!!! It went way faster and easier then I was dreading that it would go...although we do have our accidents still... Mina peed on Alex's pillow this morning...for example (was watching Sesame Street while I showered).
