It's amazing. I believe timing is everything. My dearest Elle Belle seems to potty trained! I know it's a bit much to jump the gun and label her as trained, but she really seems to have it! She goes on her own. In fact, her favorite phrase now is, "Mom, you leave me alone, ok?" (This came when she first started going and I didn't exactly want to stand in the bathroom on tinkle patrol, so I told her I'd leave her alone and check back in a few minutes.) She has even come in from playing to go. We've certainly not nailed down the pooping thing (which her older brother seems very interested in..."MOM, Ellie's poop was HUGE!"..TMI??), and I know we will still have our share of accidents, but we are definitely on the way to independence! I'd like to relate this to some great lesson or "moral of the story", but I'm afraid this is just one for the books. A milestone for everyone involved, mom included.
