the kiddies

isn't my little Lucy so darling!!!
New outfit.
That's reason for a photo shoot... right.


Alden is three.
Really three and a half.
And no he isn't potty trained.
I've tried it all.
He doesn't care.
Treats
Nope.
Bribery
nope.
Peeing on a target
nope.
His own toliet seat.
nope.
Telling him he can be a big boy.
Nope.
Character underwear.
He peed on purpose on spidermans head.
nope.
Every person I meet tries to tell me how to do it.
Even the ones without kids.
Me: "all your friends go on the potty"
Alden: "I don't care mom."
Really I've tried it.
well...

at least they are on his body?!

Hee, hee...he won't graduate in diapers so I wouldn't worry about it Rhonda! When you finally get to do it I bet it'll be in a day!

Lucy is adorable!!!!

Well at least you have a good sense of humour about this!! It will come. No 5 year old goes to Kindergarten in diapers!! Don't worry. And if it makes you feel better, Isabella has NO interest in potty training either. She turns 3 in a month and a half. Ya. She does not care either. Live and learn!

She is way adorable and he is all too normal. And adorble too. I have twins. One was so easy, the other, finally decided he would try at 3 and a half. There was no rushing him, though. It took 4 months before he stayed dry until nap time and always just on his terms. Some days so good. Some days, whatever. I feel the frustration, but it will happen some day.

LOL!! What a great photo.

Don't worry about the potty training. DS is still struggling with it and he will be 4 in June. I honestly think it has just become a power struggle. The more I push...the more resistant he becomes.

Lucy is just too sweet.

I love how you journalled about the trials of potty training. Definately a scrapbook page needed.

Lucy is sure growing and what a cutie.
