We have a big girl in the house!

I am doing a happy dance!! My 3 year old is finally potty trained. I am excited, my db is excited and I believe my dd is excited. The sound of "tinkle in the toilet" is the sweetest sound on earth.

I really tried not to push the subject because she was just not interested especially after her baby sister was born. She wanted to be a baby too and she told me so. This past Monday night before bedtime I asked my 3yo to help me "teach" my 9mo to sit on the potty. I put the 3yo on the big potty and my 9 1/2 mo on the potty trainer. This trainer plays music when the child pees in it. I sat on the floor and the three of us sat for awhile and all of the sudden the potty trainer started to play music. My 9 1/2 mo pee' d in the potty. Of course she had no idea what she had done, but her big sister knew and it must of made an impression because she started wearing her big girl panties the very next day.

Although yesterday when we were at the mall she very nicely told me that she had to pee in the potty - yikes - our first public bathroom experience - I guess you have to be careful for what you wish for. LOL. The bathroom was clean and we made it just in time.
