Ask and Ye Shall Receive.

The task of potty training the Munchkin has really taken a back seat lately. It's been too difficult to find a few days in a row where things aren't completely chaotic with appointments, or at home visits from the Nurse.

On Sunday, I knew that we would be home all day, and the Munchkin was asking for Big Girl Panties. This request came from seeing BFF take Lil' Pimp to the potty like a big boy. She suddenly seemed interested. So I put her in her big girl pants and proceeded to take her to the potty every 20-30 minutes, asking in between if she needed to go. We went upstairs, sat, waited, and read books like always. After a little while the Munchkin bent over to look between her legs and tell her Girlie Parts, "Come on, you can do it, just think about it." A few minutes later, the Munchkin says to me, "I think I hear something" and sure enough - Pee!

Who knew? All you have to do is ask.
