Well its only a few months later then I had initially planned but at least it's happening.
Tonight Jaclyn is wearing her last diaper.
I start toilet training in the morning!
Saying goodbye to this stage for me is a sad and happy time.
Sad because it means that my children are no longer babies.
Happy because it means I don't have to change anymore diapers! And because my children are learning to have more independence (this is also a little sad).
It's times like this when my children are going through another development stage that I am thankful that I take so many pictures of them. I love going back and remembering what they were like as younger children/babies and seeing how far they have come. It makes me more excited to see what kind of a people they will be when they grow up.
Now back to toilet training, I have to tell you that I am super excited that we are starting this tomorrow.
Both Jaclyn, mommy and daddy are ready to be done with diapers!
David is also excited for Jaclyn to be out of diapers and wearing underwear.
I think that David has felt like Jaclyn was left behind because she was still in diapers when the rest of us wear underwear.
For instance tonight when I took David into the bathroom for his night pee, he said to me "mommy, I'm glad that Jaclyn will be wearing underwear tomorrow and not diapers, because then she can be just like you and me and daddy"
And then earlier when David was saying goodnight to Jaclyn he told her "Jackie, when you have to go pee or poo on the toilet you tell me and I will help you in the bathroom and call mommy for you, OK". Jaclyn responded with "OK David, thanks"
I have a feeling that toilet training Jaclyn is going to be a bit of a family ordeal.
