Some are going to have to be kept secret for the time being (no, I'm not pregnant! ;). But I promise to fill you in soon when it's permissible...
|Hard to imagine that this little bit of snow gave us a snow day! Love living in VA! ;)|

I put the word in quotes because the jury's still out whether or not we will actually conquer anything anytime soon. I admit to being a poor potty trainer. Any sign of failure and I lose hope and head running for the diapers.
Our first day was actually the most successful. I was able to get MG to sit on the potty while watching a favorite show (this was the only negotiation she would go for!) My sister came up with the idea for bribery and voila! first productive potty time!! woo hoo! For the rest of the day MG would go running back to her potty and only had one accident. We were off to a great start.

Day 3 yesterday started out with MG in diapers per her request. It was a Saturday morning and GG and I did not feel like dealing with potty clean-ups. She went about her morning play. At one point, I randomly asked if she wanted to sit on the potty and she agreed (a surprising change) and produced! We left her without underwear or diaper and later I could tell she was doing a potty dance and suggested she try sitting again. She was a bit defiant and so I walked away only to hear M yell, "Mom, MG did poopy!" Are you kidding me??? I never expected #2 happening so easily! Woo hoo!! We were definitely on a roll!
Since then we've had both successes and failures, but she's still been requesting diapers. Hmm... How to bring the interest back to underwear?? The journey continues. Because tomorrow is a school and work holiday, GG and I are hoping to join forces to really bring this one home. I hope to report back in with more successes...
Overall, MG is becoming such a little person, talking languidly and making GG and I laugh a lot. She is a little ray of sunshine who brightens our world so. I love, love, love to see her interact with her daddy. They are precious together and bring me such joy.
So there's a slice of life about town this weekend.
Blessings to you from our little corner of the world,
