Potty training sucks. Plain and simple. After reading everyone's success stories about the 3 day potty training, I decided to give it a shot. Yesterday was day one. Yesterday consisted of lots of cleaning, laundry and running to the potty. Needless to say we had lots and lots of accidents.
Today has been a little better but she still hasn't gotten the hang of it yet. We've made headway though. This morning I could tell she needed to go so I kept asking her if she needed to. She kept telling me no until she just couldn't hold it anymore. I picked her up, ran to the bathroom tripping over 100 stuffed animals and trying to pull of her panties in the process. We made it to the potty with a puddle in front of it and a few drips inside it. Lily laughed the whole time I was running with her. Apparently it was fun. So I let her flush, we clapped for her and made it a big deal. She was so proud of herself. Even though she technically didn't make it we still made a big deal that she went a little. I thought we were good so I took a break from following her all over the place. Well that was mistake #1. So she was playing quietly, which should have tipped me off, when she ran past the office. I noticed her panties looked a little fuller than earlier. Yep she had another accident. Luckily it cleaned up easily. Accident #3 I asked her if she needed to go and she started running for her potty. She peed on herself the whole way, but I think she's getting the idea. I think she just waits until the last second, like most kids do. We got to the bathroom but it was too late. I still made a big deal about how she new she had to go and ran. Hopefully the rest of the day can only get better.
It's so hard potty training the second one. I know you'd think it would be easier but for me it's not. Emilee is my pleaser. Potty training her was the easiest thing ever. If it hadn't been for her daycare she would have been potty trained months before Lily was born. I'd have her potty trained on the weekend then she'd go to school and regress. It was really annoying. She was so eager to do it, whereas Lily I think could care less. Lily is definitely not a pleaser.
I'm really hoping the rest of today we can get this down because I'm so tired of being stuck at home. I have stuff I need to go do. I think I picked a bad week to start, but then again when is a good week?

Less than a month and I'll finally graduate. I say finally because seeing is how I've been out of high school for 11 years I should have graduated college along time ago. These past 2 years have gone by so fast, I can hardly believe it's the end. I have some amazing people in my class and I hope our friendships last through the years.

I looked at someone's blog the other day and realized that it had been 4 months since I wrote a post. It really doesn't seem that long. Needless to say things have been crazy busy around here.I graduate in May and I am completely overwhelmed. I am terrified that I'm not going to be able to pass my CRT and RRT exams. After having a few dozen panic attacks, I'm sure I'll do just fine. I got accepted into the honor's society, which for me is a HUGE accomplishment. I'm that girl in high school that barely graduated because studying wasn't important. Things have changed alot since then.

Dear sweet Lily happy 2nd birthday. I still can't believe it's been 2 years. I know I say this about Emilee too but it seems like just yesterday you were born. You were the sweetest, easiest baby I have ever been around. You were/are such a cuddler and I could hold you all day long. As a baby you were so laid back, I use to say I could count on one hand how many times you cried in the past month. You were just happy to be around. You were always a good sleeper and eater, there really wasn't much that you wouldn't eat. At around 10 months a new personality came out. You became very strong willed and you knew exactly what you wanted and you'd make sure you'd get it. You were a bit of a handful. There were some days when I missed my sweet laid back baby. But sweet Lily you have turned in to the funniest 2 year old. You act silly and you can always make people laugh. You have the absolute sweetest little voice. You still have your attitude and can throw one mean fit, but you get over it pretty quick and are back to being your goofy self. Lily you have added something to my life that I never new was missing until you were born 2 years ago. You have been a great addition to our family. You adore your older sister as she does you. My hope for the two of you is that you will always be close. Always love each other and be there for each other. I love you sweet lily. Happy birthday baby.
