My brother is getting married.

So, my younger brother...okay they are all younger...is getting married. I believe it will be a big wedding. The other 2 had been married through the justice o the peace and are now divorced.

Anyhoo, his wedding is in less than 2 months. I haven't received an invitation to the wedding or the rehearsal dinner. In fact, I am the only sibling on both sides not in the wedding! My little one isn't the flower girl and I am the only one with children of flower girl age. My mom hasn't even been told what type of dress to wear.

I have emailed him twice and no response yet. I would call, but I don't have long distance. This is frustrating. He told me he really wants me to be there...well, I need to know where and when! Would be nice. Our family is going to Disney two weeks before the wedding. Our little one's birthday is a week before the wedding. There is alot going on that month.

I would assume I am going to the rehearsal dinner since I am a sibling. Ugghhh...I am just so frustrated!

2 Dry days in a Row!

WE have gone two whole days in a row keeping dry! She really has got this down. Both days she has done ALL her business in a potty. We bought her a playhouse and she thinks it is her "prize" for being a big girl! HE he! I hope this is going to stay this well. She has even stayed dry overnight and at nap time. I pray this is it.

A semi-successful day!

She did much better yesterday. She wore a pull-up over her panties at her friends house and got to me too late, but went in the potty after that. She did pee on the carpet again, but otherwise went in the potty every other time! She is getting better but still has a hard time knowing when it is coming. Usually I just make her sit on the potty when I think she has to go.

Today she has been awesome. No accidents at all yet. We went to the park for a while and she stayed dry and went to the potty when we got home! She even ate a sandwich, which is another first for her. She said big girls eat sandwiches! I know we are no where near the home stretch, but it definitely feels good to have some successes!

Toilet training is hard!

Another day with no luck at all. In fact, she hasn't peed in the potty since this weekend. Today she wore just panties a few times, but went into a pull-up when we went out and went to the park and peed at those times. This evening, I was out watering flowers while daddy stayed inside with her and yep, she peed all over the carpet. He is yelling, she is balling, and I am cleaning....not fair. Her new thing is to sit on the potty for 10 min and then as soon as you put the panties or pull-ups on, she pees. This is stressful and frustrating. I bought her a little crown to wear while she sits on her "thrown", but she just plays with it. I guess tomorrow will be another day of wet panties and a crying mommy. I am so tempted to throw in the towel and wait another month, but I am worried that she is getting older and more strong-willed! Ugghhh....

Will she ever be toliet trained?

I feel like I have been trying to get her to use the potty forever. She will be 3 in just about 2 months. Today, I put real panties on her and those plastic like covers. Within 2 minutes she was wet. So, I got another pair of panties and another cover up. Made her sit on the potty every 30 minutes or so. She stayed dry for 3 hours! I was excited. I thought...this is going to work... NOPE! 2 minutes after her last unsuccessful attempt, she wet herself and told me. I don't know what to do. I put a regular diaper on her. Said some things I probably shouldn't have and cried for a little while. I tried to talk to her seriously...has anyone tried this with a 2 year old? She kept smiling and laughing and playing and I got more mad and frustrated. So, what is the secret in potty training? How is it that there are no kids in diapers in kindergarten? I think mine will go to the prom in a diaper. :(
