6:45 AM: 4-Mile Run – COMPLETED
I mentioned briefly yesterday that we started hardcore with Lili’s potty training. She has gone to the potty twice before but they were most likely accidents. We realized now that she’s more than ready. She’ll tell us if she’s too wet or if she has to pee and hides when she is pooping. So, now we’re really trying to enforce it and trying to be more consistent — though I’m having a bit of a difficult time with that part since she’s not with me 7-days a week. We’ll get there though.
My morning plans to run with Celeste got sidelined this morning since I couldn’t drop Lili off earlier than I had intended, but it worked out perfectly. As soon as we got up, she told me she had to pee-pee. So I took off her diaper and plopped her right onto her potty where she had a full bladder released!!! I know, this is lame but we were so happy and excited and clapping and hugging. She was happy too. So after, I got on the treadmill and um, had to get off at least 3x as she told me she had to pee — but nothing came out. Better safe than sorry though, plus, it’s getting her used to the idea.
I probably could have had 5-miles in but because I had to keep jumping off the tread to plop her onto the golden throne, I lost some time. No biggie though. You have to have your priorities together when you’re a mommy. And honestly, I would much rather have her potty trained before baby #2 makes an appearance. When I was done with my run, she said she had to pee again, so I plopped her on and voila, she peed again!!! Fabulous and making progress.
I feel somewhat accomplished today: A good run + Lili peeing successfully in her potty twice is always a great start to my morning… Hopefully she will be just as successful at my in-laws.
I’m making a run over to Trader Joe’s and CVS during my lunch hour. Groceries and some basic necessities, i.e. pull-ups.
Do you love Trader Joe’s? What’s your favorite item? Have you tried cookie butter? I know all my friends LOVE IT!!!
