Time for a Trim and Potty Training Woes

It seems like Natalie's hair grew several inches overnight. When I was looking at it today I got that urge to cut it...and you know when you get that feeling it's hard to ignore. Before I knew what was happening Nate was getting started on it in the bathtub.

That lasted about 2 minutes...

And then we moved to this station:

It definitely needs help, but I don't care much right now. It's usually in pigtails or something anyway.

Feeling frustrated about potty training. It was going so well, and today I let her go to church in underwear because she really really wanted to and I was so tired of fighting with her (we had done it all morning...sound familiar? Why are Sunday morning so contentious!) I left her in Nursery for awhile and then went to check on her and found her with urine streaked tights. I whisked her away and cleaned her up (I'm so glad I grabbed an extra skirt)...this time I put underwear on her and then a Pull-up...I dropped her back off and went to finish subbing the Sunbeam class. Awhile later they brought her to me and she had pooped her pants!!! Grrrrr.

I LOVE the look on Natalie's face in the tub. She just needs to let you know who's still boss as far the potty training.

Her hair looks so cute! It was pulled up today and so I didn't notice. I totally want to see it down now.

Sorry about the potty training . . I hope that next Sunday in nursery goes better.

Yikes. I feel your pain on the potty training. We'll go weeks without a problem then have an awful day (in a public place, of course). Hang in there.
