On a Roll

And today makes three days in a row:O)

No pee though, which I guess is kind of unusual??? But hey, I'm totally okay with pee in the diaper, and poo in the potty. Makes it a heck of a lot easier...

Oh, and Holland has completely lost interest in potty training. She was pretty jealous of all the excitement with Eden the past two days...but today she seemed over it. Don't know what we'll do with that one.

Congrats on Eden's awesome successes! My niece did the same thing, twice. First she would go pee in the potty but poop in her diaper and then she changed her mind and reversed it. Took awhile but she is mostly potty trained... at 4 and a half... Mostly she has not wanted to be potty trained, it would involve stopping what she is doing to go potty, and she is a busy busy person, there is not time for such nonsense!

Yes Potty training is like a roller coaster ride-- some days they are dry all day and teh next not a single trip to the bathroom is succesful-- I cannot wait to be done!

Wonderful! What a great celebration - kbreints is right - potty training is like the rhythm of the ocean - there is ebb and there is flow. Just wanted to share that my daughter began with pooping in the potty too. Once she figured that out she moved onto peeing, which took a bit more time, but did come!

Wow...I go away for surgery and the girls catapult their way into potty training world! It sounds like things are certainly moving in the right direction. I am so proud of Eden. Carson was pee trained at 2.5 but not poop trained until 3.5 years. It seemed like forever changing poopy diapers and cleaning up poopy pants accidents. Eden sounds like she loves the poopy parties and is going to catch right on.

YAY girls...keep it up!

Hi, I think I may have emailed you before....not sure....have you heard of/tried Cranio Sacral Therapy on your girls? My baby (13 months) has CP and it has been a god send!! I want to let as many people know about this, as I can. The med professionals won't tell you...

I don't know if you have seen this but I read it and instantly thought about your blog.

Welcome to Holland
by Emily Pearl Kingsley

I am often asked to describe the experience of raising a child with a disability----
to try to help people who have not shared that unique experience to understand it,
to imagine how it would feel. It's like this...

When you're going to have a baby, it's like planning a fabulous vacation trip - to Italy.
You buy a bunch of guide books and make your wonderful plans. The coliseum.
The Michelangelo David. The gondolas in Venice. You may learn some handy phrases
in Italian. It's all very exciting.

After months of eager anticipation, the day finally arrives. You pack your bags and
off you go. Several hours later, the plane lands. The stewardess comes in and says,
"Welcome To Holland".

"Holland?!?" you say, "What do you mean "Holland"??? I signed up for Italy!
I'm supposed to be in Italy. All my life I've dreamed of going to Italy"

But there's been a change in the flight plan. They've landed in Holland and there you must stay.

The important thing is that they haven't taken you to a horrible, disgusting, filthy place,
full of pestilence, famine and disease. It's just a different place.

So you must go and buy new guide books. And you must learn a whole new language.
And you will meet a whole new group of people you would never have met.

It's just a different place. It's slower-paced than Italy, less flashy than Italy. But after you've
been there for a while and you catch your breath, you look around…and you begin to notice
that Holland has windmills...Holland has tulips. Holland even has Rembrandts.

But everyone you know is busy coming and going from Italy...and they're all bragging about
what a wonderful time they had there. And for the rest of your life, you will say "Yes that's
where I was supposed to go. That's what I had planned".

And the pain of that will never, ever, ever, ever go away...because the loss of that dream is a
very significant loss.

But...if you spend your life mourning the fact that you didn't get to Italy, you may never be
free to enjoy the very special, the very lovely things...about Holland.

Congrats on having fewer diapers to deal with! :-)

I saw this site & thought of you: http://members.aol.com/pumpkinave/costumes/handicapped.htm

Well, the link I just posted doesn't seem to work, so let's try it this way: http://www.knowledgehound.com/topics/costumes.htm

It's a website with ideas for making lots of costumes (I know how much little girls love to play dress-up) and has several that are compatible with being in a wheelchair, etc.
