Learning a new trick...

Claire is FINALLY potty trained. Hopefully I have not spoken to soon! Apparently, princess pull-ups are magical and did the trick! However, I might add that having a toddler who is very proud of her newly learned trick can be quite embarrassing!

Yesterday, we went to lunch with some friends. Claire announced that she needed to use it (not in those exact words!). So I got up and took her... she went, and then I proceeded with the "GOOD JOB, I'm SOOO proud of you" speech. She runs out of the bathroom yelling "Benj, Peyton, I tee-teed, I TEE-TEED!!!" Most everyone smiled and laughed, but there were a few odd looks thrown my way. OK, that one wasn't so bad... today's incident was almost to much to deal with. I took the kids on a shopping quest to find pants that Claire could pull on and off by herself. No pesky buttons and snaps. We are in the store and Claire yells "MOM, THE POOP IS COMING OUT!!!" ! Oh, my goodness, what do you say or do in that situation? We ran to the bathroom. I guess that's all you can do.

I hope I haven't grossed anyone out! I'm trying to find humor in all of this!

Have I mentioned that we are taking Claire to the audiologist on Friday. She failed her hearing test at her 3 year check up. Maybe that's why she seems to be yelling so much! :)

We are SO proud of you princess Claire!

YIPEE!!! Isn't it great to have a potty trained kiddo?!?!? That is a huge accomplishment for you as well as Claire! We've had our fair share of toddler "potty talk" at our house, too. I think it just comes with the territory. :)
