Potty Trainin' and Entertainin'

Today, I was driving Kylie home from playgroup so we could eat lunch. She said, "I don't want to go home. I want to go to McDonald's." I told her that we didn't have any money to go to McDonald's. She said, "Well, I have a credit card!"

Kylie is now fully potty trained (but still in diapers at night)! I am thrilled! She refers to herself now as a "Super Pooper." Once she even jumped off the potty and said, "I am potty trainin' and entertainin'!" She loves to rhyme!

Good Girl

Today, after our Valentine's Day party, Kylie approached me with a piece of candy and said, "Here mama. This is for being a good girl at the party."

At a restaurant the other night, I was rolling Kylie out the door in her stroller. I temporarily set her sippy cup on her shoulder. She said, "Heeeeeey, now I'm a pirate!"

Mom was looking at baby pictures with Kylie the other day. She told Kylie that was when she was a little baby. Kylie said, "Yes, I was a little sweet heart."

Kylie has had a glorious time this Valentine's season! She had a party at her school, where she acquired many tattoos. She came home, poured out all her loot and showed me each Valentine. Today, we hosted a Valentine's party at our house for the Mom's Club. She is especially enjoying all the candy.

The other day, Kylie "tooted" in the bath tub. I asked, "What was THAT?" She said, "That was a burp from my belly!"

Yesterday, Kylie was "pretend reading" her Cinderella book. I was listening and overheard, "There is the meeeeean and spiteful stepmother. And there are the stepsisters. They are mean, too, They are boogers!!!"

Kylie and I were in the car and Kylie was eating a Scooby Doo fruit snack. She said, "Wilma was on Scooby Doo." I said, "She was??" She said, "NOT!"

We went to the Morris Museum of Art yesterday for their toddler time. This time it was all about sculpture. She then sculpted what she described as, "The bridge from the 3 Billy Goats Gruff." Kylie is very interested in "sugar bugs" and brushing them off of her teeth. I told her that the troll in her Billy Goats Gruff book never brushed his teeth and now she asks me all the time which foods are good for her teeth. She references the troll and his yellow, cracked teeth most often.

Kylie has now been 3 days in her big girl panties. We are hoping that this is it!!
