Hi everyone, meet my daughter. This picture is my daughter, she’s asking me where her party is. Darn little Diva, don’t even know how she knew about the party. Maybe she just thinks she deserves a party since, she is so stinking cute. She’s at the age where she knows everything, I HAD NO IDEA IT STARTED SO YOUNG. Most of you know I am raising 3 step children, Mattie is my 1st to potty train.
I have some pretty exciting news. Jenn’s Blah Blah Blog is part of the Pull Ups ”First flush” Ambassador Program. How exciting is this, not only is it exciting because I will be working with Huggies. Which is truly the only brand of diaper I will use, but my daughter is finally showing interest in being potty trained.
I was thinking back to my daughters first flush, lol. You know me, I always have a story. You’re going to love this one. It’s been months and months ago that we celebrated my daughter first flush. We celebrated with a high-five, and the Pee-Pee in the Potty Happy Dance. Yes, we really do have one, and NO you cannot see, lol. However, I think I look pretty cool doing it. Now back to the Pull Up’s ”First Flush“.
After we celebrated my daughters first flush, she helped mom celebrate one too lol. There I am sitting on the ‘Big Girl Potty”, I flush. My daughter comes running over, before I can flush, she looks down in the potty, and makes a beeline for dad. There’s mom, pants down, confused look on her face, Mattie screaming daddy, daddy mommy went pee-pee in the big girl potty. She then runs over to give me a high five, mind you I still have my pants down. Then grabs dad’s hand to begin doing the Pee-Pee in the Potty Happy Dance. OMG, my child is nuts.
Anyway, now back to business. I’ve been wondering when my daughter is going to do it, you know make the permanent change from diapers to big girl panties. I think in the start I pushed her a little too much, I bought her super-cute My Little Pony panties, hoping she would want to wear them. She did, on her head. At that point I realized that I needed to calm down, she would do it when she is ready.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I don’t just hope some day soon she will have it all figured out. I get excited when she tells me she needs to go, and always offer to help. If she asks me to leave her alone, I also allow her private time. I let her lead the way, and mom follows. After all, she’s really the one that has to be ready right. Like everything else in life, we cannot force only guide. That’s my strategy.
My biggest challenge has been consistency. One day she will do great, the next day she doesn’t’ want anything to do with it. I often wonder if my strategy is right. I think it is, and feel like I’m doing the right thing, but I often wonder if there is a better way. I would have to say as far as challenges goes, it’s my inexperience with potty training, and her inexperience using the big girl potty.
I am excited to host a Pull-Ups “Why Wait Let’s Celebrate First Flush Party. I think my daughter will have a baste too. We will be inviting over a few friends and their children to join the fun, and we’re just going to party until the diapers fall off. Lots of fun for mom and toddler.
I have some pretty darn fabulous news too. Did you know you can sign up for your very own Huggies party? I know, it’s pretty awesome. If you’re interested in signing up for you’re own party you can sign up through the Pull-Ups Facebook Tab here: http://on.fb.me/TZU2xd

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Pull-Ups. I received product samples to facilitate my review and to host a party. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
