YAY! - A Movement In Time And Space
Moving through time and space in our own way

Lately, Nadia has woken up with completely dry diapers in the morning. I mean, not even one drip. So, today I put her on the potty right after she woke up. She didn't want to sit there, somehow it has become a traumatic experience with her. I know partly that its my fault because I calmed her down and said, "I won't be mad at all, I promise." and she agreed to sit then.

Bad mommy!

Anyway, I sat her down and then, to take her mind off the situation, I got her a drink. She likes these flavored yogurt drinks (*shudder*). We sat there, she drank while I sang her a song and talked to her. About five minutes later, I hear her peeing and she looks down.

"Mommy, I did su-su in the potty!"

"Nadia!! NADIA!!"

At this point, she looks up at me with a worried expression...until she saw my HUGE smile. Man, what did I do to scare my little girl! *worried*


Nadia then gets this enormous smile on her face, her eyes get even bigger and shinier (no, I'm not kidding, they did!) and she says, "I DID IT!!"

I start clapping and squeeing and, yes, crying too. No more buying diapers! Hopefully this progress will just continue and the pack of diapers we just opened will be our last.

First she says her name properly yesterday and now this. My baby is really growing up. *sniff*

Congratulations on reaching this great milestone! What does su-su come from (is it short for something else or sound like another word)?

It's the Indian kid's way of saying "pee-pee", or at least in my extended family it is. "Ka-ka" is "poo-poo". But we use "poo-poo". LOL

(That was weird to type!)

I've heard "Ka-ka" before. I've even heard "Ka-ka poo-poo". Don't ask me how.

Our potty training with A is still hit and miss...last weekend she did a HUGE poo and about 3 pees on the potty in one sitting, and since then NOTHING!


She's still goes on the potty at the childminders though...I wish we could put our finger on what it is about her potty at home (or us) that puts her off. Plus her nappies each morning are full every time...

Oh, that's so good. Yay, Nadia!

Every time I suggest to Kaia that she might want to try using the potty, she replies, "No! I never use a potty! I have to get diapers!" I'm sort of at my wits' end. I figure, maybe, the less said, the better.

Andy's not close...loves to take the diaper off and run around the house, but won't get near the potty..lol.
