Potty training celebration: Throw out the pull ups

Two weeks ago I bit the bullet and ditched the pull ups on Dariya.  I knew she was being lazy and not stopping to go to the potty when she needed.

The first day at preschool she had two accidents but, after that has had no more accidents! As in not at school, home, church NO more accidents! She has rocked panties with being dry and going to the potty when she needs to.

YAY Dariya!  Extra ice cream scoops for you tonight big stuff!  We are super proud of you!

In another potty training/independence note....this morning before we headed out to walk to our park I told the girls we needed to go potty first.  Alayna marched in to the bathroom, put the potty seat on the toilet, moved the step stool  in front of the toilet, got undressed, got on the potty and went all by herself. She then was so proud she got off and remembered to move the step stool to wash her hands. Dariya followed suit and I sat back and watched.  One happy mom!

YAY Dariya!!! Way to go big girl!

I'm totally with you on the pull-ups. We usually go "cold turkey" from diapers to panties, except for nap and night time. Hopefully, Elijah will be ready to start sometime soon.

Yay! That is wonderful news!
Zeb is still in training pants (padded underwear) but hasn't had an accident in a couple of weeks. We have not conquered nighttime dryness yet though.
Love the picture of Dariya. She is such a cutie.
