I love having to do the "potty dance"

Silly title for the post? Not nearly as silly as watching me DO said potty dance. Yes, we are potty training Serene, which involves a lot of watching the little munchkin, watching her, and watching her some more. With occasional questions of the, "Do you need to go potty?" variety. And we're having quite a bit of success! Much more than the other times I thought she was ready. Only problem? If she has anything on her lower half (other than a skirt), she treats it like a diaper. Steve doesn't like her going around "commando," but it's working! She never has accidents anymore unless you LET her (like letting her get out of your sight down a hallway . . . I mean, really, any parent knows what that's going to mean). So while she's not the one-week wonder Jessie was, she's making progress, only needing pullups for sleeping and time in public (I DO have some sense of modesty for my daughter!). And each time she uses her potty correctly, Serene gets to see Mom go all silly on her and do the "potty dance" to celebrate. You should see her grin! (Though in my defense, she's probably just loving seeing Mom act like she does. Anytime there's music in a show (Phineas and Ferb being the current favorite around here), she gets up and dances her little heart out. I'm just following her lead in a way.)
