Potty Time!

So when Kris went in to check on Molly she was standing in her bed. Our assumption was that she needed to go potty. Kris wasn't thrilled with the idea of sitting in the bathroom for a half hour at 10:15 at night. So I told him if he got her on than I would come as soon as I got Stella down. So here is what we did for the next 45 minutes.
This is the song I made up. (the tune is "oh what do you do in the summer time)

Oh what do you do during po-tty time, to keep yourself amused?
Do you sit very long, or sing happy songs? Is that what you do? So do I!

I know I'm totally tickled about that song! Totally a Baird thing! So we still had time to kill so I decided since Molly is in one place and not really moving I cut her finger nails and toe nails, but we still had more time, so I went one step further and painted her toe nails... Still not done so we painted her finger nails... Still not done but I put her diaper on and called it a night! Oh well. She was thrilled about her nails and she hasn't moved her fingers since. She is so funny. All girl!

Holy Cow! You are so patient!! I absolutely hate potty training, but when it's done, it's so great not having to change those nasty diapers. Oh and I love the song.

I love it! I don't have kids yet, but I've potty trained a dozen or more kids. It's not the funnest thing! It looks like you've found a way to make it bearable! You are such a cute mom!

It is amazing how much they love the finger/toe nail painting at such a young age. Good luck with potty training!
