A note from the writers

Blogger seems to be having some trouble with its videos. They've been uploaded correctly and will run sometimes. If you can't see them now, come back another time and try again. It's totally a game of chance to get them to run. If anyone out there has a fix, I'd love to hear about it. Thanks!

Potty Trained Princess

Just a quick update on potty training. I think it's fair to say we have a graduate! Ava has been doing great going on the potty, both at school and at home. And, I have to say, it was a relatively painless experience. She was ready, we had plenty of time, and we were lucky things worked out so well. We haven't tackled nighttimes yet, but school nearly has naptime under control.

All that glowing news aside, I wouldn't really be a mommy-blogger if I didn't ever post some "will be embarrassing in high school" pictures of my kid. Ava did have a few accidents during the first couple of weeks and, sometimes, if it was close to bedtime, we didn't bother with more clean clothes before her bath.

On this particular evening, our very beautiful princess had wet herself, but then decided running bare wasn't going to cut it. So, naturally, she chose the only scratchy skirt in her dress-up arsenal to put against her bare skin - the skirt she won't wear over clothes because it bothers her. Oh, the logic and hilarity of toddlerhood!

Our pretty, potty-trained princess checking herself out in the mirror!
