I have been a total absentee blogger lately.
No wait. I take that back.
That would imply that I have been doing some blogging.
I have just been absent.
We have been insanely busy the last two weeks. And not the good kind of busy that provides interesting blog material...just busy.
The potty training thing has been wearing me out but I feel confident saying that Emma Jane is about 95% potty trained.
Which is 95 times better than the 0% she was pulling in a week ago! The creepy froggy potty is still in my kitchen. I am afraid to take it away because she is totally independent on it. She even dumps it out herself!
It's probably time to at least move it into the bathroom, though.
So I took Emma Jane with me to the grocery store tonight and of course, two thirds of the way through the store she has to go potty. So we make our way to the restroom. And considering the minuscule amount of pee that actually made it into the potty, I probably should have just forgone the revolting public toilet and let her wet herself!
For those of you with only boys, let me clear up a common misconception about little girls and the potty. Girls have to be taught to aim too! You would think, given the female anatomy, that little girls would just naturally pee straight down into the toilet. You would think.
But no...little girls (mine anyways) need to see what is happening. And so they lean back with their little legs open and pee shoots straight forward into their panties and onto the floor.
And if mommy happens to be standing in front of the toilet...onto to my shoes as well.
I comforted myself by buying some Nutella.
