Spring Break 2012

Well, it is spring break week and we are not doing anything fun or crazy. No beach trips or other exciting things for us. This is how we are spending our week...We are in potty training boot camp! Oh so much fun. I think I would rather have my toenails pulled off than to potty train a child. If you have read this blog for very long you may remember how much trouble it was to potty train Ben. So needless to say I was not looking forward to potty training Kate. But I figured it couldn't be any worse.

Since the kids were out of school for the week I decided to arrange my work schedule so I only had to work 1 day late in the week (I love that I can do that) and hit the potty training hard. First thing Monday morning we hit the ground running. Kate was so excited to wear big girl panties. First day went pretty well. Some successes and some failures. Day 2 was really long but we ended with some big success. She is doing fairly well. She is still excited and really wants to do it but I am just not sure if she is physically ready yet. We are going to stick it out for the week and see if we can get it down though. If not we will try again in a few months (just shoot me though)!

This means we have not left the house in 2 days and all we do is go to the bathroom every 10 minutes. It is brutal! I think I might pull my hair out. But we are surviving! This might go down as the worst spring break ever!! So if you don't hear from me over the next few days it might be because I have totally lost my mind.
