“I have to go potty” is what I’ve been hearing a lot lately from Alyssa. I really am in no mood to potty train her, so I’ve been ignoring her pleas. She won’t relent on her desire to potty, so I have been letting her go without a diaper.
So far the score is:
1 for the coffee table
1 for the sit and spin
1 for poo in the corner
1 for poo on the hard wood floor in front of Emma’s room
0 for the potty
Everytime she “goes” potty wherever it might be she runs to me and tells me “I did it” YUP you did it all right. I recently bought a Costco sized box of diapers so I have a while… I think we are making progress though she came to me today while wandering naked and demanded I put a diaper on her because she had to go potty. I’m not sure what this kid is thinking, but I’m patiently playing her game for a while, although I’m keeping my expectations low.
Yesterday was Aubrey’s birthday of course. So I’ll throw a few pictures of her opening gifts and blowing out candles. The pictures of her opening her gifts are after we got home from Lake Tahoe and I had just pulled her out of the bath so excuse the messy wet bath head.
I made Aubrey a Barbie skirt cake. It was an interesting adventure. I had a hard time getting it high enough, so I had to keep baking more cakes. I think I baked 3 total to get it the right height. I was just about to saw off Barbie’s legs to get it the right height but Danny thought that could be a warping situation. It turned out alright, not fabulous, but alright!
