Miracle of Miracles

Lydia is potty-trained! My goodness, I thought it would never happen! I was determined to wait until she was ready, convinced that she would potty train quickly that way. Well, after waiting and waiting and waiting. . . it worked!
Three months ago, Lydia and I had this conversation:

Lydia: (said with eyes wide and eyebrows raised) I get a jelly bean when I pee in the potty??
Me: Yes!
Lydia: And I get TWO jelly beans when I poop in the potty?
Me: YES! (Huge smile on my face)
Lydia: (said with a perfectly straight face) I don't want to sit on the potty.
Me: {{eyeroll}}

A week ago, we ran out of diapers. When it was time for me to put on Lydia's first diaper of the day, I said: We're out of diapers. Today you're wearing panties.
And she has yet to need anything else.

WOO-HOO!

Now I'm going to take the money I'm saving on diapers and go to Hobby Lobby.

LOL! Sounds like what I would do with my savings, too :) It took a loooonnnnggg while for my dd to potty train, too. It pretty much came down to how it happened for Lydia :)
