Potty Training: Day 2: Two BIG thumbs up!
Cara is just awesome! She went on the potty about 20 times today, no accidents at all! We still have to conquer using the potty for well, you know, but I'm not pushing her and just trying to keep things really light and positive!
We even went out to dinner tonight and she didn't have an accident! We put her in a pull-up just because I didn't want her to panic if we were driving and she couldn't get to a potty. She kept the pull-up dry and went potty at the restaurant two times! She is making the whole thing look way too easy:) But my friends, trust me when I tell you, that the boys are going to be harder, much harder to train! She is quite the independent girl and doesn't fall apart when confronted with a challenge. The boys on the other hand will whine and cry when things are hard, and are quick to say, "I can't!" I think Eli will be okay with lots of reminders and encouragement...our dearest Brady on the other hand...there will be battles, many battles!!!
Tomorrow the big kids are taking a little road trip to visit Great Grandma Vera about an hour away. I'm very excited to see how Cara does away from home for so long. I didn't anticipate so many outings when I started this project earlier in the week, but she is doing so well that we will just roll with it!
I am sad to report that our awesome camera is not working right now. I love that camera and it has been so great to have for the past 8 months, but something isn't right with the button you push to take the pictures. I'm looking into it, but sadly will not be able to share pictures for a while:(
Lastly I wanted to share a video from the CNCF (Children's Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation). It is our goal to continually raise awareness about Neuroblastoma and funding for research aimed at improved treatment outcomes for children with this disease. I shared this video on Facebook and wrote that I had never heard of Neuroblastoma before January 21, 2009. My goal is for everyone I know to understand the warning signs and tell at least one other person about this disease. Please take a few minutes to watch this video. It just may save the life of someone you love...
