Potty Training Success

this girl is fully potty trained.
Daytime and nighttime.
I'm here to tell you that my behaviorally-challenged Gracie
can, in fact, be potty trained.

A celebration was in order so I got her a cute little leotard
with 5 different color tutus,
and some Minnie Mouse ballet shoes.

The keys to our success:

a) Keeping the pressure and stress to a minimum.
b) Recognizing transition periods
(i.e. moving, vacations, familial adjustments).
c) Trying to stay patient with her delayed speech
and postponed understanding.
d) Plenty of potty prizes.

It was a very rough journey but we've made it
and now we can sleep soundly at night knowing
she will not wear diapers to college.
