All aboard the weekend P-Train

And yet another cold, snowy winter weekend in the north. Blah. Blah. Blah. Same yucky weather, different day.

So, what did make my weekend happy? Um, having fun with my kids of course!

Eric and I went into the weekend without a single plan or commitment and just wanted to be lazy and rest. Okay, so maybe the "lazy" part doesn't so much happen. Well, really we didn't so much as rest either. But you know what I mean. Aside from doing a TS show for a friend of mine in town on Friday evening, Eric and I had the weekend to call our own.

We called up some friends and made last minute arrangements to join them out for dinner. Troy and Jenni have been our friends since before we were married and even though we don't see each other as much as we'd like, we can easily pick up from exactly where we left off. It seems as though dinner plans aren't the most practical for Jenni and myself since we would rather jabber along with each other over eating our food. Kind of like two teenagers who can't get off the phone for a minute to go to the bathroom. That's us. She's great! Also, Troy and Jenni are parents to bio-siblings which they adopted as toddlers. Though Tyler and Olivia are young teenagers (or almost) they just swoon over our kids. Each kid wanted to sit next to a kid at the dinner table. So cute. And that was our 3 hour dinner.

Other than that, Sunday brought a full day at home and a full day (with exception of nap time) of Elaina wearing big-girl panties! Hooray! She did great! Not a single accident all day and she actually seemed like she was getting the whole "dry panties and no diaper" pitch we've been presenting to her for nearly a year now. Hallelujah! Oh, and she even kept her pull-up dry all of Saturday night while we went to dinner and did some shopping afterward. She was excited to use her portable, fold-up potty seat and went every time. My heart be still.

Stay tuned for more TMI on the Potty Train!

Glad you had such a great weekend. Good job Elaina with the big girl pants. That was one of the things I was going to recommend if you weren't doing it already. Even if she wets the big girl pants they will be much more uncomfortable than pull ups and her body might get the message even better. Hang in there -- Harper has been more or less potty trained since June, but still has the occasional accident.
