Potty Time

Z used the potty for the first time today! and it was at school.  We have been asking for her to move up to the next class for about months now.  She liked her class, but she was in there with babies and it was showing by the fact that she would sometimes not want to feed herself, hold her own drinks, etc.  We wanted her to move up because she was more mobile, vocal and better able to follow directions than most kids in the class.  But the director of the school restructured the classes from 12-18mos and then 19mos-24 months to 1yr-2yrs, 2yrs-3yrs and didn't tell us.

So Liam went into the class to pick her up and they told him one of the other kids had been moved up ahead of her.  Well we sent the director a message and told her under no uncertain terms that she needed to be moved up.  She explained the age grouping shift, but said they would move her up because her teachers felt she should be moved up because she was doing a lot more than the other kids.  I knew it would be a good move for her.  The only way we got her to drink from a sippy cups and use a fork was by having other little kids in her class doing it.  Lo and behold today in her little progress book the note says she used the potty twice today!  I had been trying to get her to do it.  Pretty much sitting on the bathroom floor while she sat on the pot for a good 45 min only to have her hop off and pee on the floor, so I was pumped at this development.  She's a kid that sees other big kids doing something and then she's all over it.  So hopefully it will happen by the time she's 2, that would be awesome.  We have 2 months to get the basics down.

Boo is her usual spit bubble blowing self.  Her legs are getting stronger and I think she'll be looking to crawl soon.  I'm looking forward to that day and also dreading it.  But at least then she'll be able to attack her sister or run away, which ever her preference might be.
