Here we go again!

My little girl is getting so big! At 2 ½, T.G. has learned how to pump her legs on the swing. Th didn’t learn until he was 4, and Ta was 3. I suppose having older siblings to model the skill definitely had an influence on her learning. Her vocabulary is also blossoming. She cracks me up with all that she says. She even reprimands the boys when she knows they are doing wrong; it must be her natural instinct to “mother” them. What’s even funnier is that they listen to her!

Today we are embarking upon a new skill, one of which is my least favorite: potty training. Alas, I know it is a skill that is a necessity for independent living. In spite of all the benefits and such, I still hate it! But, my little girl is a trooper, and she’s done excellent today. She went potty on the toilet when she first woke this morning, before her nap, and twice after her nap. We had some errands to run this morning before lunch so she did wear a diaper, but since we’ve been home, she’s worn her panties. I am happy for this outcome yet I know an accident is bound to happen.

*I am thankful for my children, 2 boys who add excitement and energy to our house and 2 girls who help keep things calm.*
