Pottie Time, Excellent....

Well, our new system seems to be working. Last Wednesday, before I went on my trip to Oklahoma we started putting Oda Mae on the potty every 15 minutes. Yes, that's a lot of times on the potty every day. Since then, she has only had about 4 "accidents" and the rest of the time she has been going on the potty! We are very proud of her. She has her own little potty chart with stickers that she gets to keep track of. Occasionally, she'll tell us she needs to go, but usually not. I hope we get to that part soon.

Yesterday, we went to every 20 minutes. This morning, (after she hadn't pooped in 3 days) we went to every five minutes. We still missed the big event. I think there's more coming though. We'll go back to every 20 minutes after she wakes up from her nap.

During nap time we wear our "Cowboy" panties. They're pull-ups with Woodie and Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story on the front.

Oh, and the timer. We bought a "special" kitchen timer for Oda Mae to hear when it was time to go potty. Apparently the joke now is that when she grows up, every time she hears a bell ring, she'll have to go pee. Wont that be a fun when she grows up!
