Bitsy made her first trip out of the house in big girl panties today. Not Pull-Ups mind you, real, honest-to-goodness underpants. We didn't go far, only to Uncle E's house to visit with Ray-ray & Beffie. On the way, I reminded Bitsy that she was wearing her panties & couldn't pee in them. As soon as Ray-ray opened the door, Bitsy bolted in shouting, "Poop! Me poop!" made a bee line for the bathroom, and did.....nothing.
When Beffie got home from school I told Bitsy to tell her why we were at their house. We'd gone to borrow their Tinkerbell DVD. Bitsy said, "Poop!" Yes, we came over to poop at your house. We do that. Wait until we have to go, then hop in the car, drive to an unsuspecting family member's home, and ask to use the commode.
But, she did use the potty there (without telling anyone she needed to go!! She hollered at me when she was done) and stayed dry the entire time we were gone. Up until now, things have been just too exciting at Ray-ray's house for her to bother paying attention to her bladder. She could make it all the way home from Tennessee dry, but 20 minutes at Uncle E's & her Pull-Up needed changing.
This is a recipe for one happy mama.
