Toddler Tuesday

I was introduced to Toddler Tuesday over at Minnesota Mama Must Haves . And thought "hey, I have one of them". And with my toddler everyday is an adventure so I'm sure she will give me plenty to share about. We are also exploring potty training this week. We have been diaper free ( well except overnight) for almost a week. I can't believe it! I have been trying on and off since about 16mths and finally had decided to let her go at her own pace. After struggling with my boys I learned that they are going to go when ready, know matter how much YOU may want or think them to be ready.
 I had one average boy, one early, and one who took FOREVER!!! But you know what the Best thing ever said to me was.. "Relax,You don't see any 18yr olds is diapers..Do you?" They all learn eventually and you don't always have to keep up with the Jones. So this time around I thought why not wait it out. Every now and then I would ask about her underwear, show her the potty, ask some "potty time" questions. And this week she said I want my underwear.. I put them on and it has been magic ever since. This is SO exciting to me this will be the first time in TEN YEARS I haven't had a kid in diapers. I don't know what it's like not to be wiping butts all day.
Which brings up a question I have. Gia is my first girl, so I have never had this issue. Maybe TMI but when she sits to pee she "sprays" up and out every place. How do I teach her to IDK, to control it I guess? At this point I would rather be washing the floor a million times a day then picking up a fresh pack of pampers. And with three boys I'm washing that floor a awful lot anyhow.

Don't you love potty training?! I'm hoping Danika keeps doing great too. She is doing awesome. She too wears diapers just at nighttime. I guess I don't know what you mean by Gia spraying all over. I haven't had that sort of problem at all with Danika. Not sure what would be causing that. Anyway, Thanks for linking up to Toddler Tuesday!
