I would like to announce that Paige has conquered the potty - insert cheers, applause and whoops here!!
It has been a long road that started back this past March. Which, really, isn't all that long...but, it feels like FOREVER to me.
About a month ago she finally started to go to the bathroom all on her own. She saw a friend of hers do it, and I guess she figured that she might as well give it a try. I truly tried to put the whole notion that she was near the finish line out of my head. We didn't speak about it. We didn't even exchange big smiles when she trotted off to the bathroom to go - all on her own. It's not that I wasn't happy - I was screaming happy, joyous things in my head - I was just so afraid that it was all some sort of dream, and my screaming would make it all go away.
Well, after one month of going all on her own, conquering the whole #2 thing, and nighttime dryness, I think it's time to shout from the rooftop. Skywrite it. Do the dance. whatever.
She. is. done.
And, yes, I said nighttime dryness....she wakes up in the middle of the night, gets out of bed, and goes all on her own....I can't believe it myself. It took Emily 1.5 years to do that!
Baby girl, your Momma is SO PROUD!
Now let's just have a bit of a break before the next hurdle please.....
