Caroline took it upon herself to potty train this week! The boys often close themselves up in the bathroom while one or the other does their business, and Caroline feels SO left out. Weird, but true. So one day she asked me to hold her on the potty so she could join in the "fun"; seizing the opportunity I brought out our training potty instead.
SUCCESS! The first time! I'm calling it beginners luck, but it's been a few mostly-successful days, so maybe it's more... While SHE seems very happy at this turn of events, I feel like I'm not ready for this! It's been so long since I've had to worry about accidents, about remembering to ask if someone needed to go so they wouldn't forget, about doing extra laundry when accidents happen anyway... so I have a bit of a mental block, anticipating that potty training will be TORTURE. Training Patrick went well, Eli was a BREEZE, so I'm not entirely sure WHY the mental block, but there it is. We'll see how this goes.
