A Happy Post

I just wanted to put a little update on here that since we bought Mariah a little potty seat with a step up onto the potty and handles on the side, she has not had an accident (even a dribble) for two days.

I don't actually like how flimsy the one we bought is (link above if you click the title to the post) but Mariah LOVES it. She still has a really hard time getting onto it herself but the idea that she can go into the bathroom, take her pants off, and attempt to get on the potty herself has transformed her behavior.

Its like she had no idea that SHE could just go in there and try to do it herself. She even wipes herself which is more than I can get Wes to do right now lol

So... after horrible day of having her pee, poop, and force herself to throw up ALL in one day, we've had a great rest of the week. She isn't even rocking herself back and forth or throwing her head around to get attention when she "has" to pee, or if I've told her to hold it a little while. Seriously, "Moi Steps!" have transformed the idea of the potty and how she is supposed to use it.

Phillip is off tomorrow too so its an early weekend. I'm going to hide the eggs that the kids and I colored and we're gonna have a little Easter Celebration tomorrow complete with baskets in the morning. They'll be so surprised :)

We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life; but those who make their journey home across time and miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them,are carried on the wings of destiny; and placed among us by God's very own hands. --Kristi Larson
