The funniest story yet....
Yesterday I took her to Whole Foods because Neil was sick and it is so difficult to get rest with a little one running around. So I had her sit on the potty twice before we left and right when we arrived at Whole Foods. She didn't go either time...so I'm starting to sweat it, thinking she's going to pee in the buggy at Whole Foods. She didn't. So we went again at Whole Foods before we left and no pee pee.
So, I loaded up the car and off we went. As soon as I got on the highway, she yelled out "Pee pee mommy". I made a quick exit and noticed a Hardee's right off the highway. Little did I know, it was the ghetto Hardees. The bathroom was clean by fast food joint standards, but it reeked of peach air fresheners and old cigarette smoke. When we entered the restroom, Layla looked at me and said, "ummmm mommy...it smells good in here...like some peaches". HA, my eternal little optimist. I wiped the potty down at least three times with a wipe covered in anti bacterial soap and popped her on top. We sat for about 10 minutes and no pee pee. Out to the car we went. As soon as she was buckled in her car seat, she told me she had to go potty again.
In we went...to the fabulous Hardees...this time for about 15 minutes and then SUCCESS. We both laughed like crazy...I laughed because I had never spent so much time in a public restroom and I guess she was laughing because I was laughing. All in all, I was so proud of her for telling me she needed to go potty and then actually doing it.
Fingers crossed that this attempt at potty training is a success :-)
Finally, as promised...a belly picture. Its somewhat disappointing, I know. I told Neil to make sure he was at an angle that made it look the biggest. I don't think you'd ever hear a female ask her husband to take a picture of her belly and try to make it look big. Oh well. We tried--I even arched my back a little. I guess this little one is going to be a tiny baby like Layla....I was really hoping for a big belly this time around...I still have five months to make it happen though :-) Bring on the milkshakes.
Layla thought it amusing that I was having a picture of my belly made, so she wanted in on the action.
