Our house has reached a new milestone this last week. I had a goal of P-otty training my youngest, little Ny, right after I finished with my book work. My little one needed very little help. She was ready. Apparently, all she needed was someone to pay close attention to her and someone to be there to sing Hip Hip Hurray for her after she went pee. Today, marks 7 days straight of her using her pretty princess panties. In all 7 days, she has had only a few close calls. Even when we go out, she quickly comes and tells us when she has to go. I just feel so proud of her.
We followed a different p-o-t-t-y approach with her. With our Wonderboy, we tried so hard, we push him, and placed him on the pot for weeks on end. His body wasn't ready and we tried so hard to make him understand. At the end, we ended up all frustrated and we finally gave up and let him do it on his own time. When we found out that we were having a second child, we had made up our minds that we would not push him or her, we would just let them do it on their own terms. The second child came and we did just that and to our surprise, it has worked! Hip Hip Hurray for Ny!
We have reached a few milestones this year: she is no longer in nursery at church, which means that I have no children in the little classes nor I have any little ones going in. My children are growing! Both of them are in primary (at church) and now I don't have any of them in diapers! My oldest is in school and my youngest will be entering pre-school in the fall (had to pre-register her last week). What does all this mean? I am getting old!
Another milestone we have reached: My desire to knit has returned. We have a Chevron scarf in progress. The yarn: yummy Koigu. The pinks was given to me by Mom when we went to Rhinebeck in 2006 and the other I bought to go with the pinks. I was hoping for a more neon green but it is a bit more subdue than what I saw on the screen, but it looks good with the pink. The scarf is making nice progress right now that I am down with a nasty cold/cough.
Picture of Ny: she is wearing her Dad's snow boots and Dad's hat!
