"The Impossible"


I may have potty-trained our third child.

Without totally losing my mind.

I would have bet millions that Lillie would have been astronomically hard to potty train. That she would test all limits, set the earth askew and send me rolling down a steep embankment to take away the pain.

But she was fairly easy. She took to it. She was motivated. She was organized. She was clean.

So I'd say after three weeks of it, she's about 95%.

Most of us know that potty training is never really over, not until they're four. Give or take two years.

But for now, Mama's happy.

Yeah Lillie! It so much nicer having them potty trained and so much better on the pocket book. Good mama for getting it done!

Leanne said...

What?! Lillie is old enough to be potty trained?! Wow!

What? I don't even want to "hear" it. We are 3 months in.

What's your secret? Seriously. Also, what qualifies being potty trained. I seriously don't know.

Jennifer said...

Oh yeah...voodoo Lillie!! Good Job! ;)

Okay that was supposed to be woohoo not voodoo.

Good for you Sarah! Seriously, my daughter is about a month younger than Lillie, and I am SO NOT GOING THERE YET. After training 4, I am so tired. But I am sure she will thank me once she's in school. ☺ Or vise versa.

Wow. I'm thinking Lias is a few months older than Lillie and he is in no what interested at all. I don't think I've ever even had him pee on the potty. Yeah for you and Lillie and living through it all to tell the tale.

No way. What an independent, fabulously adorable little girl. Way to go Sarah.

Potty training is hard and now you've got three under your belt? Teach me as I gear up for Coco:)

that's lucky that she was pretty easy. every kid i guess has their challenges and their easy-breezies i guess. since she gives you a hard time in other areas, you deserve this!
my 3 1/2 year old is still struggling. so i was glad to hear you say that it is not til they are 4, or so. glad that is sorta normal.
