pottywatch: 07

Here's an update all about the potty:

Sept. 26, 2007- Purchase 2 packs of girl undies, promptly drape them across vintage bus and snap pictures. The girl is unimpressed.

Sept. 27- December 18, 2007- Claire wears the undies some mornings for an hour or so. She sits on the potty every night before her bath and several times throughout the day. When she's tired of sitting there, she throws bits of paper into the bowl, waves bye-bye to the paper and flushes. She does this ten frillion times a day, without actually going into the potty. Occasionally, she'll pull the trainers down and pee freestyle in the corner of the kitchen. Some mornings when I wake her, I'm greeted with, "Mama! Big POOP. Wash!"

Today- Hallelujah! Angels sing. The girl successfully pees into the potty. Later, mama broadcasts this information onto the worldwide web, because of course that is the logical thing to do.

On a totally unrelated note, I'm thinking of cutting off the mullet. I wish she'd let me pony her hair up, but it only lasts like this about 3 seconds. I started to take her to cut it yesterday but I chickened out. Any thoughts?

Woo hoo! And so it begins. Before you know it, you'll be seeing her in her cute undies all the time.

I'm the way wrong person to ask hair advice of. Jason is the hair cutter of our family. He really is. I once cut Maggie's bangs and they looked horrendous, so I am banned from the scissors now.

I kept Isabela's hair pretty short until she turned three. Since then, I haven't cut it at all. She has progressed by leaps and bounds and now ASKS for pony-tails!
Wohoo. It really comes down to what is easiest for you. She is adorable no matter what hairstyle she is sporting.

OK, I'm going to go against the flow and say don't cut her hair. It looked so cute last week when I saw it. My advice would be to get the really small plastic rubber bands and use them just to keep the top up. I used these with Morgan and there was no way for her to get them out. Let me know if you have no idea what I am talking about and I will pick some up for you.

Did you see what I did? Na was the same way, she pulled everything out in the car, so she was just super cute when we would get someplace. Personally I think it might grow in better?? Isn't that what they say?

YEAH for potty, we are going to work on that...soon...seriously...we are.

I vote for the know she'll be beautiful no matter what. And it'll grow back (quickly) if yours and mine are any indication.
Love you,
