Potty Training and SNOT

Molly has shown some interest in potty training so today* is d-day for us. Since Thursday is my stay home and clean day Jon and I decided today would be a good day to start. We will see how committed I am if there is an accident on my newly cleaned floors. Molly and I had a pep talk and then she got her Dora underwear and put it on all by herself. I think she is more excited about Dora than the whole bathroom thing but lets hope she motivates her.

Riley has had some snot the past few days and decided at midnight she didn't want to sleep in her bed anymore and at 2am she and I went to the couch for the rest of the night. Laying on my stomach helped her be able to breath better and I am sure she was glad b/c that meant I fell asleep and the sucker no longer entered her nose ripping out her snot. When she cries from the sucker she literally says whaaa which cracks me up but I don't think Jon was too happy about it from 12- 2am. Let's hope we are almost done with this snot attack!!

*That was short lived - while nursing - Molly used the kitchen as her personal bathroom. Back to diapers I am not ready to be as persistent about her using the bathroom and I can't handle cleaning up pee all the time. My goal is to have her potty trained by 3 so we have 11 more months to get this down.

I vote that surviving a two year old and newborn make for a successful day! :) potty training can wait :) but that is coming from a Mom who is currently dreading the thought so it may only count as a half vote!

Potty training stinks.
