Potty Training 101

Mostly it's just made me want to have my own accident.



But then, isn't is just like God to grant us beautiful moments of perspective amidst the chaos?

That sweet surprise on her face as she tells me, with enough time to spare, that she needs to go...
Her scrumptiously chubby legs hurrying quickly down the hall...
Her eyes shining with pride as she makes it all the way there...

Oh how silly am I, dear Lord, to forget that you can use even days like these to expand my already full heart. My cup runneth over.

I adore her chubby little legs too! And isn't it a great feeling to realize that your cup runneth over?

Great photo! I totally laughed out loud with your first comment. Don't worry, eventually...she'll get it. But yes, you may gain a few new wrinkles or gray hairs. God will get you both through it.

That must have been where my gray hairs came from. Stay strong. You are doing great. This to shall pass as some like to say. :) She always makes me smile.

Way to go Kelly! Good job on the potty training!

Hang in there. She'll get it. I will say potty training is definitely one of the most frustrating things I've done so far as a mom.
