Bubbles has been “in the process” of potty training for awhile now.  We’ve had a lot of success in certain areas; she’s been nighttime potty trained for probably a year and always goes potty first thing in the morning.  It’s the rest of the day where we have had a few challenges.

I was surprised, because everyone always talks about how girls potty train so early and so easily.  I didn’t really want to press the issue with her because I didn’t want to turn it into something negative that she was going to be even more against trying (did I mention that my curious toddler also has quite the stubborn streak?).  The time has officially come for us to start, though.  Bubbles looked at me the other day and said, “No more diapers, Mama.  I’m a big girl.”  No arguments from me!
