Big Girl Panties

On Sunday, October 3, 2010, our family decided that Stella was finally ready for big girl panties.  By "Stella being ready for big girl panties" I really mean "Mommy and Daddy were finally ready to risk letting Stella wear big girl panties all day long."  So Sunday morning we began our experiment, and I am happy to report that Stella was accident-free all day, even after a rather nervous naptime in her big girl panties in her big girl bed.  I was the nervous one; she didn't seem too bothered by it.  It is now Wednesday night (actually the middle of the night; the reason I am up at this hour is that Cille slept most of the evening while Stella and I were away at gymnastics and now seems intent on playing all night long) and we have only had two accidents in four days.  Unfortunately, my vehicle was the first casualty of the Great Potty Experiment, and our couch was the second.  The fact that her only two accidents have occurred under my supervision supports my theory that she has actually been potty trained for months and has continued to use her Pull-ups to make me feel needed.  Hopefully she will give me and my squirt bottle of Resolve a break tomorrow.
