My girl likes to potty all the time...

We've introduced underwear. We've done it.

Scarlett is getting moved to the potty training room in daycare a month earlier than anticipated. (This is due to her being "developmentally ready." Woo-hoo Bubsy! I'm very proud of you!) We've had a potty in our house for about 6 months now, but would only put Scarlett on it if she asked. She peed in it a couple of times - she pooped in it once - but we were waiting for her to get moved into this particular daycare room before we decided to really work on potty training. In this room they have official "potty time" built into the daily schedule. Every hour, they line up and walk down the hall to the cutest set of miniature toilets you'll ever see.

So, come next Monday, the potty training wheels will be in FULL motion. Because of this, we purchased some fun new underwear for Bubs. Observe...


Apparently, diapers must weigh Scarlett down or something. We took her diaper off and put her in underwear - and she took off. I have about a dozen pictures of Scarlett sprinting around the house in her new Cinderella underwear.

And what better way to potty train than to sit on your potty watching Cinderella...with your new Cinderella underwear around your ankles? Scarlett sat on the potty for the whole movie. And she peed! Woo-hoo Bubs. I know we have a long way to go. Scarlett will have to remain in diapers at daycare until she can prove to be potty trained - but when she gets home, the diapers will come off and the new underwear goes on.

But that is not to suggest that the underwear will stay on...


Oh Bubs.

Yay, Scarlett! And can I just say...and I apologize if this sounds weird or inappropriate, but...Scarlett has the cutest little booty I think I have ever seen! It's just adorable!
