The Potty

I decided that Saturday was the BEST day to potty train. We had nothing on our schedules and Ginger seemed ready. In case you're wondering, "nothing on our schedules" means "big kids were totally bored" and "Ginger seemed ready" means "more accidents and staying within 2 feet of the potty than I had anticipated." On Day 2 we had success, and were able to venture out from the kitchen into the living room for a bit. It's hard work to go pee pee in the potty. It's also hard work to be the mom. My quads are killing me from all the squatting.

But, I did manage to get the binding put on a mini table runner. I got the American Jane mini charm pack from Quilt Market in May. Well, I say "I," but I really mean Candice's mom Robbie got it for me. She was the queen of Market Swag. I thought the little 2.5" squares were perfect as they were, and just added some white squares in between. I bound it in a the gold print from DS Quilts last line at Joann's. It's a favorite and I will be sad when I use the last of it.

It measures about 24x14, which is why I call it "mini." I put it on my buffet with my other seasonal decor. I just need to find my Muffy, which is a whole other post.

And today, I am reveling in the fact that all my kids are diaper free. It feels oh so good. Better than a ribbon at the county fair.

I am in the midst of Potty Training myself but it is not going as quickly for me. Any tips? :)

Those mini charm packs are so cute! Love your runner.

Potty training is not one of the things about mothering that I was promised would bring "the greatest joy that has ever happened in my life." ;0)

the potty training in one day book and some divine inspiration worked charms!

Yay for success!
