So I have been trying to potty train Kaiden for about 6 months. Well actually even longer than that. I think I started before Carson was born, and then gave up after he was born because you know a new born baby is crazy enough. So anyway, after we moved to Washington I made up my mind that it was going to happen. NO MORE DIAPERS! Gosh, I just wish that someone had let Kaiden in on this new resolution. She was nervous at first, but extremely excited to wear panties. At the beginning she had the normal accidents, but had no desire to go on the toilet. She would sit on the toilet but the accidents continued to happen. Then she got where she would not tell me that she peed in her panties. Well, that continued happening for a while until I decided every time she peeed in her pants I would wash her off with cold water in the bathtub. Let me just say that that was a big mistake. From then on she was determined to hold it until the end of time I guess, who knows. I mean she would literally not go to the the bathroom for 8+ hours. Aggrevating. So I gave up trying to do anything with her. Give her a break and then she will be ready, I thought to myself. So I didn't do anything during Christmas, and now I am back at it again. And once again she is holding it all day. What the heck!! On Monday she held it for like 11 hours. She was crossing her knees, walking repeatedly around the room, and whining. Freaking go to the bathroom already, but I put her all the little toilet and she didn't do anything. Is she afraid to let it come out? Does she have a bladder the size of an elelphant? I have know idea. So that night (after she is still holding it all the live long day) I went upstairs to put Carson to bed and when I came back down J. had put a diaper on her, and (of course) lo' and behold it is already full, because she peed it it. Aargh. She is so stubborn! I need a Toilet Fairy, you know just like the Tooth Fairy who comes and magically makes all children miracuously potty trained. What a nice thought. Sigh. People I need some advice or I am going to stangle my daughter! I have already started dreaming about potty training her. What more do I need. My dreams will probably start turning into nightmares. Instead of a person stalking me, I will have Kaiden's Dora potty lurking around the corner ready to pounce on me and drag me down to the sewer. Oh well. Someday it will all be over (fingers crossed).

Kaiden was a little scared to go sledding for the first time. However, after her first time down the hill she didn't want to stop. It's a good thing my brothers were there, I wasn't about to track up and down that hill 30 times. I'm way to lazy!
