Potty training update!

For those of you who are interested in the pee and poop habits of Beanie ;)

Potty training is going very well. Every morning she wants to "wear underwear." Yesterday we had ZERO accidents. Granted, I put her in a diaper for the few hours we were out of the house (is that cheating??) but still! No accidents. Woohoo.

I'm so glad we waited. Seriously, I don't see what the rush is people have with potty training. My friend and I were just talking about it yesterday. Its not like its a race. And, for crying out loud, its much easier just to let your kid go in a diaper anyway! I'm sure once we get it down a little more going on the potty will be easier (or at least not as messy). For now, I feel like I can't take my eyes off her for two seconds for fear she'll cop a squat and poop in her pants (because, truth be told, two of our three accidents over the last three days were poop).

Anyway, *up on my soapbox* it really is easier if you wait till they're ready. You don't get a gold start for having your eleven month old potty trained. But, if that's how you roll more power to you. I'm just so glad we waited, amidst all my mom and dad's repeated cries that we'd better start soon. Puh-lease.
