Mmmmmm Maple Syrup!

Today was amazing! It was a balmy 5 degrees C out so I packed up the gals and drove over to Mountsberg Conservation Area for their annual Maple Syrup Festival. Mmmmmm maple syrup! The girls were well behaved, the syrup and pancakes were delicious and all of the animals were cooperative with the camera. All in all a fantastic day. Here are a few of the pics I snapped:

I’m So Proud My Heart Might Burst

See this?  This completely wonderful and adorable little girl?  She is utterly amazing!

Why you might ask?  Because after reading three potty books at "quiet time" she decided she didn’t want to wear her diaper anymore.  So I obliged and let her wear some too big undies that I had bought for her (size 4).  They were loose enough that she could pull them up and down herself.  4 (FOUR!) times she used this:

This is awesome!  She also went all on her own!  Without me asking her, without playing around for 20 min on the potty, without numerous stall tactics that lead her to wet her pants  She stopped playing, said "I have to poo", went over to it, pulled her undies down, lifted the seat and peed!  (She didn’t have to poo – I guess she’s still learning the sensations).  She stayed dry all day – from 2 pm until we put her to bed!  I guess I’ll forgive her for spilling the catch basin of pee all over herself as she so proudly tried to carry it to the toilet to dump it out 😉

Oh yeah, oh yeah!  Happy Potty Dance!  She’s a big girl, oh yeah!
