Panties today:
Today I send Emma to daycare in panties. I am tired of her not careing and knowing it's no big deal if she pees adn poops in her pull up. So we are attempting panties now. SHe wore panties all day today (except naptime and now bed time) she had 4 accidents at daycare (on poopy one) but no other accidents the rest of the day. She even wore panties to Boo at The Zoo and staed dry the whole time and all the way home before I put her on the potty and she went. Sweet! I know it's still going to take some time before we are accident free and telling people on her own that she needs to go but it's a start at least. It has helped that Kellie is doing the same thing with Isaac. We can both sympathize with each other, give each other encouragement and use it to our advantage with the kids (positive peer pressure). We are also useing candy as positive reinforcement. They get 1 skittle if they sit and try, 2 skittles if the go pee pee, and 3 skittles if they poop. Neither one has yet to get 3. But that's usually the hardest to learn and make happen. I was just so proud of her making it this evening without any accidents at the Zoo. She's growing up so fast these days. :)

That is a good start. There still may be days long after they are potty trained that will have many accidents. That is awsome that they startingto do well...next thing you know it will be time to train #2! :) (get started Kellie!!:)
