I just couldn’t get it together enough to get the girls out of the house, but they did have a highlight occur when David, Olivia, and Isabella drove all the way down from Salt Lake just to babysit them tonight! We are practically speechless with gratitude. What a gesture of kindness! Abe and I were able to go to the temple, and we had the most uplifting time there.
Abe and I were about to throw in the towel on the potty training front, but Mary peed in the potty TWICE today! The thing about Mary is that she doesn’t pee often. Lydia pees approximately every twenty seconds. Grandma, Abe and I were remembering on how you commented that we changed her diaper ALL the time when she was a baby. Weren’t we changing her every five minutes? At any rate, because her internal system is so efficient, she had lots of practice in the three-day potty training system. Even though she still has accidents, by the end of the system we at least felt confident she knew how and when to go to the potty.
Mary, on the other hand, pees about four times a day. And it seems that when faced with the prospect of pooping on the potty, she can constipate her system indefinitely. Add those factors to her four hour mid-day naps, and potty training just got pretty hard. So today was cause for celebration! And two full paragraphs on the subject of my daughters’ bodily functions extends that celebration more than enough on the blog. Full stop to potty talk here.
David and Isabella took some great pictures from their babysitting which they will send over tomorrow. In the meantime, here’s what I have today!
