1 Doctor, 1 Accident, and Lots of Hershey Kisses

Today was my mom's official graduation day. She received her doctorate in education. It has been a long three years for her and it is finally over. We can now call her Dr. Mom/Dr. Gigi. Congratulations Dr. Mom!!!

It was a long day for all of us and I was not expecting that our potty training would continue on a day where we were away from the house ALL day. However, Reese only had one accident all day!!! I can't even believe it! This morning before we left the house she went potty...and got a hershey kiss (that is her reward). I put pull ups on her because I am refusing to go back to diapers now that we have come this far. When we got to Mercer I took her straight to the bathroom. She had a dry pull up but said she didn't need to potty. During the ceremony she said she needed to go so I got up and took her. This time she pooped in the potty...something she has NEVER done before! I was so proud that I gave her two kisses for that! She still didn't tee-tee though. So after the ceremony I immediately took her back to the bathroom and she tee-teed in the potty! Another kiss! And still this whole time she had a dry pull up. We went to Maggiano's afterwards to celebrate. We tried once to go to the potty but it had automatic flushing toilets and it kept scaring her so she wouldn't go. After we finished eating I tried again and she went...this time I covered the automatic sensor with toilet paper so it wouldn't keep flushing. Another kiss!! On the way home she went in her pull up...but this was her only accident of the day! After we were home she was upstairs with Daddy and said she needed to go potty. Daddy took her and she pooped on the potty again! Two more kisses. Later she actually told me (which she never does) that she needed to go potty and she tee-teed on the potty!! Yeah! Another kiss. I really can't believe how well she did today. I was just telling friends the other day that I didn't think it was going to ever happen...but I can see the light now! We will see how tomorrow and Monday go and then we may be able to send her to school diaper-less. Wow...that would be a great way to start the new school year!
