all of the things i've dreaded doing with mae have been a cinch so far. taking away the binkie was fairly easy--the "binkie fairy" was a hit. the bottle after that was even easier. yes, she cried a little--but overall i'm surprised at how easy it was, especially when i imagined it would be so dramatic.
today we lost mae at costco. we were checking out, and when we turned around she was gone. we were totally frantic. katy, jayson and i split up to look for her and they paged all of the workers with her description. the point of this story isn't that i'm a horrible mother, or how completely frightened we were. the point is where they ultimately found her--
she wandered into the restroom, took off her diaper and was sitting on the toilet. she evidently needed to go potty, and didn't bother to tell us.
should i really be terrified of potty training? am i just psyching myself out of these things?
