Mommy and Me Monday- The 46th Edition- Do the Potty Dance


It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids.  Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information.

Happy New Year.  I can’t believe it’s 2011 already. 

Did you ring in the new year with a bang?

Us?  We are super exciting.  We drank our champagne, watched The A-Team (with some nice eye candy), kissed at midnight and went to bed.

But, before that, I decided we’d have enough with the diapers.  And, I wasn’t interested in drawing out the potty process for a year like we did the with first.

So, I downloaded the 3 day potty training book, and we started it Friday morning. 

I won’t get into the details now, because I’m not really certain of our results, but I will say, there was a lot of potty dancing this weekend.  And, a lot of laundry washing and carpet cleaning.

But, we’ll focus on the potty dancing and the victories.

(Girls, yes, that is mommy with you.  Trust me, nobody else would be here for these fun-filled three days.  Trust me.  And, the headless mommy? Totally my request, because the last three days don’t photograph well on mommy!)

Mommy and Me Monday at  Really, Are You Serious?

**There really is only one requirement here, a picture of you and your baby or babies; your children, your “baby” (ie significant other) or even your fur babies.  If your picture doesn’t feature you (meaning you must be in the picture), I will have to delete your link.  It’s not fair to the others that follow the rules.**

Make sure you head over and check out all of the other Mommy and Me Monday posts and leave them some comment love.  It makes me sad to go to posts at the end of the day and only see one comment.  Please spread the love!  And, I never mind the comments, either:)

  4. I hope the three day potty training jump started it for you guys! It is so nice now that Tucker is potty trained…when Mike and I took just him out today for his Tucker day I didn’t have to bring a diaper bag & could carry a cute purse instead! It felt almost weird not to have a huge diaper bag full of baby stuff but so good as well!

    Your girls look so cute doing their potty dances!

  5. Good luck with the potty training! I HATED that first weekend of full on training but it was so much easier than all the weeks before where we dragggggggged it out!

  6. Jessica Jones says:

    UGH I HATE potty training!
    Thats prob why Cooper was 3 before he was…unlike the other 2 he actually required guidance and lots of gummie bears!

  7. You are brave to try the 3-day thing. Of course I may be so ready to have K trained that I’d be up for that too! HA! Happy New Year!

  8. Oh no! The potty journey is giving me frustrations… yesterday I wanted to cry of frustration because she wont do it even if we were sitting in the potty for over 30 minutes then when I let her down in less than 5 minutes she peed. It happened 3 times!!! I need to buy more patience!

    1. Maybe you should check out the ebook? It was like $22 and a very quick read with a lot of support. Good luck.

  12. Good luck with the potty training…i just ordered a 3 day potty training book…but there is a downloadable one?

  13. hahhaha…the headless Mommy! awesome shot….:) happy new year!

  14. It is sucha good idea to have the Mommy on camera too. I always have kids’ pictures but almost never my own. This Monday series is a great incentive to put my own pictures up!

    About the potty training, it is just so different for each child. The whole process was dragging for like a year with my older daughter. My second daughter just decided to use a potty when she was 18 months old and never had an accident since. I was not even planning to potty train her until she was two. I guess she was ready earlier.

  15. We’re doing the toilet training thing here, too! Actually my almost three year old has been pretty much poopy toilet trained for many many months now, we are just working on peeing in the toilet all the time now! Happy New Year to you! May 2011 bring you many wonderful things and happy memories!

  16. Love the potty dance photo! I didn’t even know that there was a system of potty training in 3 days… good for you, hope it worked.

  17. love the potty dance photo! such a real mommy moment, great to capture it!
