“Potty training bites!!” Yes I wrote this titled article and ironically within a few days of publishing it, Lily decided to pretty much be fully potty trained and be done with Pull-Ups. Hey, I am not complaining that they made me out to be the fool, because this type of being wrong is the kind I like!!
Most know I have two little girls and they are again only 16 months apart. But since starting this blog, I chronicled their potty training efforts here and will not bore the reader with what I have said already rather in this post I am going to be quite possibly concluding our potty training journey with today’s latest milestone.
For the past few days, Lily has not had a wet pull-up, morning, noon or during the night. She has been dry and no real accidents. She has also told me on a few occasions that she has to go to the potty for both peeing and pooping. It is like some Christmas miracle that just happened to come a little late, but who am I to turn a gift away late or not.Proud Day for Potty Training–No More Pull-Ups!!
I seriously thought I would be supporting Huggies Princess/Minnie Mouse Pull-ups for the rest of my life at the rate I was going, but after seeing her recent accomplishments, we decided to let her stay in just her new Minnie Mouse Underwear that Santa brought for her.
Lily was so very proud of this and also so happy, because the kid is cuckoo for Minnie Mouse, so to be able to wear Minnie all day without the possibility of having to change to wear Princess was, I suppose, quite appealing.
No joke, whoever in Huggies got the bright idea to make the Pull-Ups bag half Minnie Mouse and half Cinderella should be shot, because Lily loves both, but seems to have more of an obsession (bordering on stalking) with Minnie Mouse. Do you know how many times she would need to change her pull-up for wetting it in the past and would throw an absolute fit of mega proportions, because we only had Cinderella, not Minnie Mouse left? Oh I seriously kid you not that I was so close to calling Huggies to file a complaint and even contemplated tape recording her screaming to let them hear what I have heard too many times that I lost count.
But alas, it looks like those days are behind us and thank you Santa Claus for bringing us Minnie Mouse underwear from Target for Christmas this year, because they seem to have done the trick.
Now I have two little girls, who are for the most part potty trained. After, Emma was potty trained, I saw I was spending less on diapers and pull-ups. That was a nice drop in money spent, but was still buying for Lily, diapers at first and then pull-ups. Now, I can hopefully not have to spend anymore money on pull-ups. Sorry Huggies (not really), but thank god this family will no longer be supporting you anymore! So checkmate, we are done with Huggies Pull-ups!!
That said dear readers fear not, because even though my girls are potty trained or house broken for those of you will pets (hey I am trying to relate to all!), I am sure we will have more toilet tales to tell in the New Year. So fear not, because this is so not the end of the bathroom adventures and probably just the beginning!!
