Potty training

We didn't want two in diapers and Melinda's goal was to get Madelyn potty trained by 2, so we researched and found a three day potty training program. Madelyn had it down by the end of the second day. She even stays dry at night! We skipped all training pants and pull-ups and just wear big girl panties 24-7. Mommy and Daddy are so proud of her!
About the only downfall of being potty trained is that half of Madelyn's pants won't stay up. She has a serious case of plumber butt! She can literally walk right out of her pants!
To keep from going stir crazy by being in the house for a solid three days we came up with some different activities. This day (day #2) we baked Halloween cookies. Madelyn gets very excited every time the mixer comes out because she knows that she gets to lick the beater.
Hanging out in her big girl panties. The first day we went through 17 pairs of panties, 8 on the second day, and only 3 on the third day!
