Potty Training

Last week we decided to start the potty training process. I had NO idea what I was in for... A friend had recommended . I think it would work if you had an adult for each child. But my hubby has to work. And we had something going on every weekend in the month of December. I read her book and used her technique as best I could.

The first 3 days were HELL!! I have never cleaned up so much pee in my life!! I was ready to give up. Actually at one point I put diapers back on them. But there was no way I was going to let this get the best of me. So I took the diapers off, reach out to some friends for tips and tried again.

By day 4 something clicked with Charlotte. She didn't have ANY accidents!! I couldn't believe it!! Maggie was still having accidents. But day 5 came and it clicked for her. We haven't looked back!! Pooping is still an issue. Charlotte is kind of getting it. Maggie not so much.

Night time is something we haven't tackled yet either. We started out putting them in undies for bed. They were having accidents left and right. Charlotte wasn't waking up when she peed. So they are in pull ups at night. Last night Maggie woke up around 1. She has a habit of sleeping with me... But last night I went and got her and out her in my bed. She told she had to pee on the potty. And she did!! I am thinking that's what woke her up!! We may be onto something there!!

This has been by far the hardest thing I have ever had to do. I thought waking up every 3 hours to feed them was hard... That has nothing on this!!

I can't believe we are 2 days away from Christmas!! Where did this year go?? The girls are super excited that Santa is coming! I don't think they have any idea what they are in for!! I went a little overboard this year and I know my mom did too!! Oh well!! Christmas is for kids right?

I don't have any new pictures to post :( But I am sure I will have some for Christmas ;)

Merry Christmas my blog friends!!
