Potty Training update---hopefully our last!

So if you've been following my blog for awhile you know that months ago we potty trained Brielle "successfully"....she went a few weeks with very few accidents. Then suddenly she just lost interest. We never went back to diapers, but we were having lots of accidents (multiple times a day) and she stopped telling us she needed to go. About a week ago I decided to do some bandaid training---she loves Dora bandaids and wears them all the time! ----so she earned a bandaid for going potty and was able to keep it as long as she stayed dry---if she went in her pants I took off the bandaid and threw it away, and she couldn't earn another until the next day. Well I am happy to say that as of today she's gone FOUR DAYS without an accident. I am about ready to declare her potty trained, yet again lol. She still wears a pull up at night, but does wake up dry about 75% of the time.

As added incentive Lee got a giant bunny when he was home last (it was his as a kid I guess) and he put it on top of the fridge and said Brielle could have it if she stayed dry for 2 days straight. So after she did that she earned the bunny and I took some (bad quality) pics lol

In other news we had a great time at the fair yesterday---the girls rode a few rides, saw the animals, had icecream cones and funnel cake, and more!

Oh, here are a couple random pics from Friday, of the girls making a "hammock" and watching TV together lol
No idea why the screen looks weird.

two pottery barn chairs turned upside down and covered with a blanket!

And lastly, what they're wearing today! (I figure I annoy 50% of you with the clothing updates, but I know a good chunk of you enjoy them I've discovered if I take a picture of their outfits every day I can easily use those pics to sell the clothes later, and save myself some time!)

Brielle is wearing Crazy 8 (the girls wore these outfits for Easter you may remember)

Raya is wearing old school Naartjie that we bought used. Hard to tell, but it's actually a very pale yellow.

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
