Aria is finally coming of age. She's begun... potty training (hooray)! Just having m&m's and princess underwear have amazing incentive-aligning powers. Pictured below: another satisfied customer. :)
However, not all experiences have been stellar. While playing today, she intentionally smacked me in the face with a toy, so I locked her in her room for a couple minutes as a time out. Unfortunately though, when I opened the door to talk with her about what happened, I found that during her 3 minute screaming fit behind the door, she had lost control of her bladder and had peed all over the carpet. Not cool. Oh well, at least it cleaned up fast.
Here's a pic from our family night this week, where Aria helped make rice crispy treats.
Zade would've joined us, but he was out of commission. Interestingly though, unlike Aria, who slept on her back as a baby, Zade prefers his side.
