progress report

i didn't do it.  promise.  velzy and ivy had been finding airsoft pellets a.k.a. "little balls" and had been shoving them into ivy's pockets.  shoving so hard that her little pants fell off her little bum, exposing the little bum and her little big girl undies.  ah yes, the undies.  potty training.  i have to say she surprises me.  most of the time in good ways- like how she is pretty happy to go on the potty and has the cutest little things to say when she is done, things like: "i did IT" "tiny shi-shi" "just little shi-shi"  i guess they are not so cute when typing them, but when she says them in her little voice, they are really cute.  and she can go for long amounts of time without going to the bathroom.  and she is not afraid to us public restrooms.
and then there are the not so fun surprises.  like yesterday when she peed on my bed while jumping on it.  or how she has the ability to not go pee for hours but as soon as we are outside playing, she has an accident.  i have done a lot of laundry.  in fact, if there were not flowers covering up her pants in the pictures from the last post you would see she had had an accident.  we just kept on walking.
oh, but the best is that she has figured out how to work me over using this new skill she is trying to master- when placed in timeout she will ever so conveniently all of the sudden have to use the bathroom.  she knows i won't make her stay in time out so she runs to the potty, time out dodged.
i love it when a not even 2 year old outsmarts me.

I can' believe she's that far along. My boys are so uninterested and I am dreading the laundry so we're not doing much with it right now but their pottys are outand they sit on them sometimes, mostly at bath time.

i wrote this on my comments, but i never know if people go back to check so here is the down low...
xanthan gum is a substitution for wheat gluten. must take its place pretty well because that is the first time i used it and it was fabulous. someone gave me some, but i'm guessing you could get it at the health food store....
