Wishes do come true

I kid you not everytime I found an eyelash or drove over train tracks I made the same wish:

I wish Diva would be potty trained before her third birthday.

She turns three in 9 days and as you could see from my last post, the future was looking bleak.

During the past several days she has been wearing her underwear but still wouldn't "perform" on the potty.  Today she came to me and said, "Mommy I need a diaper!"

me: "Oh but sweetie, the diapers are all gone!" I dashed into her room and stashed away the goods to where she couldn't find them. She sauntered in a few minutes later, looked around to make sure it was true and then exclaimed, "I go pee pee on the potty and then I get chocolate ice-cream!" (I have been telling her this for WEEKS)

me: "Yes honey that's right!"

Diva: "Okay let's go!" *runs over to the potty and pees like she has been doing it for years*

WHAT?!!  Is this for real?  Am I dreaming?  

Of course I freaked out and we danced and clapped and she kept shouting, "I GET CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM!"  ha ha.  I held true to my promise.

The rest of the day she has peed on the potty without any hesitation.  HALLELUJAH!

Now you might be saying, "Why didn't you just try hiding the diapers like months ago?"

I did.  Didn't work.  For some reason it did today and I am so grateful.  We are never ever turning back to diapers.  In fact she is asleep, in her bed, in her undies.  

Tomorrow we can hopefully conquer going #2.  And by "we" I mean her.

She did it! I knew she'd do it. Stubborn little stinker. :)

YAY!! See, something just had to click in her mind, whatever it was. That's great! I wish I could have seen the whole thing--not necessarily the peeing part, but her expressions and everything. She's so funny. Yay, Diva!

Hallelujah!!! I'm sure that tinkling was a beautiful sound.

I hope Cadence finally got that ice cream cone you have been promising her for the past 6 months. I knew she would do it sooner or later. Way to go Cadence and Carly for your patience. XOXOXXO

Hah typical Diva! Stubborn but knows how to negotiate.

So hellooo! What happened? Is she back to diapers yet or what?

The Greenwoods said...

Congratulations! There is nothing better than the sweet feeling of success! Now maybe some of that good potty behavior will rub off on Brandon while they are in the nursery together! Yeah for Diva!
