Potty Time

Potty Time

Wow.  It’s Wednesday.  Already!  It almost feels like whole days are going missing.  Ok, maybe not missing, but they are flying by in a sleepy haze.  It was the weekend just yesterday.  Oh well.

So, Saturday we tried our first potty training attempt.  Teagan had found (I hadn’t put away) the potty chair and step stool, and was eager to try them out.  So, we did.  She kept going from sitting on the chair to standing on the stool.  And back again.

After about 30 minutes of her sitting and standing and then sitting and standing again, we decided we had to get her to sit still.  How could she ever go if she kept going?  LOL!  So, we ended up slowing her down by offering to read books.  LaLa sat with her first while I went to help Pop-Pop with the crib, that was still in the garage.

Big Girl!

Big Girl!

Books did slow her down, but not quite enough.  Teagan did pee.  Unfortunately, she must have been so surprised that she was going that she got up peed on the floor and slipped.  LaLa wasn’t sure how she got up, she must have looked away at that moment or looked down at the book.

Teagan started to cry.  We gave her lots and lots of praise about actually going.  I think we were able to make her feel better.  I sat with her for a while after that, and she stayed on the seat, reading with me.

She fell in love with the training pants – not plastic pants, but actual training pants.  We had to tell her that she needed to pull them up and couldn’t walk around with them around her ankles.  Tee hee hee!  She ended up napping in them.  She didn’t wake up dry, but that’s ok too.  We’ll try again.



Sunday was Easter, and we did a mini-egg hunt.  Teagan had a blast!!  LaLa had filled the eggs with raisins.  The piglet was so excited by the raisins in the eggs she would stop after she found one, open it and eat the raisins before going to look for the next one.  LOL!  Eventually we got her to find more than one before stopping to eat the yum yum.

She ate everything – asparagus, london broil, roasted potatoes, spinach and strawberry salad.  She even got cake for dessert.  Special Hop Hop cake made by LaLa!  Yay!

PS.  The baby blues aren’t completely gone,  the Keane  songSomewhere Only We Know“/Welcome back/Goodbye Kurt scene in glee got me all teary today.

    Yeah, not 100% successful, but not a failure either.

    Glee usually doesn’t make me weepy, hence the comment about the baby blues… Glee will make me nostalgic and a bit sad that we didn’t have quite the same high school, less the slushies of course!

      That didn’t get to me. The bird dying, that got to me. LOL!

    Tee hee hee! She did, didn’t she??!! I need to collect all these stories for later… I’ll need some sort of leverage with her, I’m sure. LOL!

    It was too cute watching her find the eggs – I will have some video up soon! It needs a bit of editing by Stu first – she really got into it, princess of oblivion that she is. He heh!

    I’ll have to give her a story eventually of when I was young, we only had hard boiled eggs, that we had to decorate and peel when we wanted to eat them. None of this raisin yum yum stuff for us. LOL!
