someone asked me a potty training question recently and i almost couldn’t remember what it was like. this reminds me. back from march 2008.

so, this is my third child and i forgot a very important step in the potty training (toilet teaching, elimination independence, diaper diss…whatever you choose to call it) journey.
i fall into the category of i’d-rather-change-a-diaper-than-wet-clothes mamas so my kids leave diapers when that is no longer true. this morning as we were getting ready for the preschoolers, it became no longer true. i told eliza that now since she is three she doesn’t have to wear diapers anymore (like lucca and annie and isabel and elsie don’t either). great. she was good with it. she went commando the rest of the day, one accident that ms. shannon helped with, but general delight with the process.
after school she eagerly told naomi and micah about her not wearing diapers anymore and we went to the porch to eat snack. during that time, she stood up, peed and said, see! no me wear diapers anymore. i’m a big girl. i don’t have to pee in diapers, just in my pants.
oops. i forgot the toilet part, i guess. but as i type she sits on the pot waiting.
