Finally!!!

I never, ever, EVER thought I'd see this day...and I'm not exaggerating here. I think my girls are potty trained, and that means no more diapers for us!!! We've been a diaper family for the past 6 years. And one of those years all four of our kids were in diapers! I've been putting off the potty training because the thought of training 2 at one time was overwhelming for me. Last Sunday the girls realized that they were still in the 2 year old class at church. They have to be out of diapers to be in the 3 year old class. This motivated them to want to wear the big girl underwear that Auntie Emy gave them for their 3rd birthday in November. They've worked hard all week, and I think they'll be ready to go to the big girl class tomorrow morning. What a great award for their efforts! Now, is there a potty training award for mommies?

Congratulations! I'd send you an award myself if I knew how. Instead I'll just say "GREAT JOB"!
I know that it is truly an accomplishment. What will you do with all the money you save from not buying diapers? I think your reward should be a great new dress.

Congratulations! No more diapers is defiantly something to celebrate! We are in the midsts of potty training at our house and it has been two steps forward and 1 and 3/4 step back process. How wonderful to be done with it all, and see the fruit of your hard work!

I also think you deserve an award for having four little ones in diapers all at once! It makes me tired just thinking about it. :-)

No more diapers! I'm still dreaming of that happy day.

Congrats! My almost 4 year old boy is finally potty trained, and his 3 year old brother is halfway there. The 2 year old sister is halfway there, too - it takes so much longer for boys than girls! I can't wait until they are all potty trained, too!

You take the money saved on diapers and spend it on yourself at Starbucks! You deserve a reward, too.
