Mother's Day is Officially Over - Back to Work!

Claire decided that today was a good day to wake up when the clock still read 5:something. She is currently asleep in her high chair. But the rest of us, we are awake. Good thing I got to sleep in yesterday.

I have decided that I have been too much of a pushover with the potty training issue, so I told MG a couple of days ago that Today Is The Day. We had to scream and cry to get the panties on her, and she is currently sitting on the potty watching Disney Channel. I told her that she could watch Cinderella if she peed in the potty. She has a drink over there, and I'm not sure WHY it has taken her 45 minutes (and counting) to make a drop of pee, but, hey, at least she's quiet and entertained. I got breakfast together, checked my e-mail and blogs, and now I'm posting. I should've thought of this months ago. She can just live on the throne while we're at home. No problem.

I think we're in a battle of wits right now, though. She is saying, "You can lead me to the potty, but you can't make me pee," and I'm saying, "You're going to sit there until you pee," and so we'll see what happens.

I've just had it. I'm through being wishy washy. She's been trying to change her own diapers. Clearly she's ready. I've explained that no one changes her own diapers - the next step is using the big girl potty - but she just does not agree. Supernanny would say that the reason she is not yet trained is because I haven't put my foot down. Well, Supernanny, the foot is down. The panties are on. The diapers are only for nap and bedtime. We'll see.

I need to postpone my Mother's Day Giveaway because my mother-in-law is out of town, so she hasn't received hers yet and I don't want to spoil the surprise. So.... We'll do it next Monday, to commemorate my One Year Blogging Anniversary!

I hope you all have a great, accident free day!

I beg to differ - my great-grandmother changes her own diapers. :o)

Obviously I'm not to this point yet, but certainly don't look forward to it! I've always heard that if it's a nice day, take them in the back yard and let them run around naked all day with a potty chair on the patio.

Good luck with your potty day!
