Potty Training Update

Well, it seems like the bootcamp just may have worked. Caroline is in training pants (not Pull Ups) when we're at home. She still has a few accidents but will tell you when she has to potty...sometimes. She sleeps in a diaper and naps/runs errands with me in a Pull Up. She's still in diapers at daycare because I'm not ready for them to have to follow her around with a rag to clean up her puddles. :-) It's not too bad at home since our downstairs is all tile and hardwood. And she usually stands in her self-made puddle until I can get it cleaned up. One day last week she told me that she had to poop, so we hurried to the potty (grabbing her sippy cup of milk and a couple of stuffed animals along the way--she doesn't like to potty empty handed). I thought it was probably a false alarm (her MO has been to tell me this, sit on the potty for a few minutes, and poop almost as soon as training pants are pulled back up), but I almost fell over when she stood up and there was poop in the potty! I sang, did the "you pooped in the potty dance", and gave her a big hug! She got to put 2 stickers on her chart and got 2 Reeces Pieces! I had promised her earlier that morning that she would get the Mickey Mouse balloon she's been eyeing at Publix for a couple of months now if she pooped in the potty. So, that evening after work, we unloaded in the rain and bought the $7 balloon (which she was scared of as soon as we got it home--this was after hugging it in the car). We're heading to Hernando for a few days, so I'm hoping the success continues there...especially since my mom has a lot of carpet!
