Tonight I was laying in bed and my 2.5 year old daughter came in the room and announced "I'm all done going potty". I was busy catching up on my blog reading and frankly didn't think too much of it. Then I happened to look at her and saw that she was naked from the waist down. So I scooped her up and ran downstairs to look at the small potty in the guest bathroom. Sure enough: she had peed in it! I was so ecstatic. For months now everyone has been berating me for not trying to train her. I maintained (given my vast experience on this subject of course!) that she was the type that would use it as a battleground until she was ready if I tried to push her. So I haven't pushed her. I keep the potty out and we talk about it a lot. She proved me right today by doing it the first time all alone, all by herself. So you'll excuse me if I take a few moments to brag on her. And on me for being right. Although time will tell about that!

As a side note, some of you may be unable to post comments on my blog because blogger is in the midst of switching over login stuff. I am unable to leave comments on blogs that have not switched to the beta and I guess you can't leave comments on beta blogs without a google login. Hopefully they will get this all resolved soon - it's a real pain in the butt. In the meantime, I have an email address over there to the side and if I am MIA from commenting on your blog, you'll know why.

I don't know anything about potty training so I'll just say congrats.

The Google/Blogger thing is kinda frustrating me right now because I blog "anonymously" but have a Google account in my real last name - doesn't show up on the comments but who knows what it does in the background... I may have to email them. *sigh*

Oh, BTW, I've been able to switch from my Google account to my Blogger account... it's just a hassle.
