Ready or not



Remember when I was going to potty train the twins like forever ago? Well that got put on hold, since I got pregnant and sick and didn't have the motivation to do it. Well looks like Jayci is ready whether I am or not!

She as already gone in the potty 5 times without me even telling her! Two mornings in a row the girls were up watchin cartoons eating cereal, and I take my time getting out of bed in the mornings lately, so I eventually came down and there was two naked little girls and one potty with pee in it. This happened 2 days in a row! I thought it was fluke the first time and even the second I wasn't sure if I was ready. But today, she didn't go all morning in her diaper, and then I threw them in the bath and they both told me they peed in the bath. Awesome. So after their nap I heard Jayci upstairs coming out of her room saying "I pee, I pee." but she was crying, so I went up and she was naked. So I thought she peed in her bed. Nope no pee in the bed. So we came down and I asked her if she needed to go on the potty, she said "yes" so she sat down and went! For real?! Will it really be this easy? So about an hour or so later I gave them juice boxes and she was walking around naked. (It's just easier) and she goes, "I pee" so I said, "oh good girl you need to go? K sit on the potty!" She pointed to the potty again, "I pee" So I look in and she already went, ALL BY HERSELF! That's 3 times today! So I guess we ARE doing this. Good thing my sickness had subsided and I can actually do this with them. DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH MONEY WE WILL SAVE?!?! Even just with ONE!

I read online with twins, sometimes one will train before the other one and to just give all the dedication to that one, so you don't loose them, then pretty soon the other one will follow. So that's what i'm gonna do, but Presley still sits on it here and there, but no pee so far.

I do give Jayc a candy and I am all about it, she loves that she gets a reward for doing it. I don't know if me screaming yahoo's in her face and jumping around is good enough, she needs the candy. So here's hoping.

My friend lent me an Elmo potty movie for them, so I stuck it in today for them.

I was dreading doing this, but maybe it won't be too bad after all! Wish me luck!

Edit to add: Presley has now gone 3 times! Also Jayci went #2!!!! This is A HUGE DEAL!!!!

CELEBRATION TIME!!!!!!!

geeez I just re-read my comment and I made it sound like you wear diapers, I MEAN no more CHANGING diapers for you for a while. Unless you really do wear diapers then that last comment would be relevant I guess....

I only have one and I think it's hard enough. Actually Kinsey does pretty well if we're at home. Going out...that's harder.
