It’s Official!

I have some big news for you today!

I’m not pregnant…

A truly momentous occasion occurred many weeks ago, but in a solemn effort not to jinx anything, I kept my mouth shut. Believe me, I wanted to shout on the roof tops, or you know, tweet about it, but I held back. Just to be sure.

Yes, the day has finally come, after nearly 8 years and 4 kids to be exact, when I can confidently announce that the last of my babies is officially potty-trained!

See for yourself:

Exciting right? And bittersweet maybe? Well, just a tad. It’s not like I’m done wiping bums or anything!

Check out the featured video in my sidebar for a glimpse of my underwear-wearing girl as a baby, and pass me a box of Kleenex, please.

Yay for you. I know *she’s* the one who is using the potty but good for you for guiding her to it!


Christine@TheAums March 27, 2012 at 9:38 pm

It’s definitely a yay for me…it’s so surreal to not think about diapers anymore.


Lanae March 27, 2012 at 4:47 pm

That is amazing news!!! I am so happy for you all! I am in the throes of potty training my youngest right now, only my second child and can’t imagine what it was like to potty train 4! Proud of you! :)


Christine@TheAums March 27, 2012 at 9:43 pm

Thanks Lanae! It really does feel amazing and you really will feel it too someday…promise!


Brandi March 27, 2012 at 4:48 pm

Hooray for PLo, and hooray for Mama!!! I just absolutely love this little girl. Love.


Christine@TheAums March 27, 2012 at 9:44 pm

Hip hip hooray…can’t believe I kept it to myself for so long! We really should have the girls Skype soon, I bet they’d talk up a storm now that they’re older.

bittersweet moments aren’t they? my little is off to kindergarten in the fall and there are no more to come. . .some days I’m sad and sometimes I feel amazingly liberated as if there may be some glimmer of life on the far off horizon. . .LOL

Thank you, Hillary! If it’s any comfort, first loose teeth should be around the corner…after that, not sure what the milestones are…first driving permit? Bittersweet indeed.

So exciting! My baby is finally potty trained too!


Christine@TheAums March 27, 2012 at 10:15 pm

Ooo doubly exciting! Congrats to you too! I will drink some wine in your honor :)

My heart is melting, she is so so so so so cute!!


Christine@TheAums March 28, 2012 at 1:14 pm

My husband and I have watched her video over and over…we melt every single time :) “See you tomorrow, hope you come back tomorrow!”


Stasha April 1, 2012 at 3:48 am

How much did you pay her to say that :)


Christine@TheAums April 4, 2012 at 12:35 am

I still ask her daily if she wears diapers (because I’m still in shock/disbelief) and when I ask her why not, she says because I said on the video that I don’t. Love her.


Jeanne March 28, 2012 at 7:44 pm

First- yea I totally thought you were announcing you were pregnant haha
Second- she is GORGEOUS!
Third- Congrats Mama!!! The day of no more diapers is very very far away for me, but you’ve certainly put in the time!!


Christine@TheAums March 28, 2012 at 11:21 pm

Thanks, Jeanne! It’s still so hard to believe.


Jessica March 29, 2012 at 11:44 am

Adorable! Yay for you both! That’s so awesome!! :) We’re almost there. N is pooping and peeing in the potty mostly, but I have to remember to put her on, which is tough as I usually forget. But, I’ve been getting better. So, I’m hoping that a month from now, she’ll be fully potty trained. We’ll see. Any tips you can share?


Christine@TheAums March 30, 2012 at 2:10 pm

Yes, my biggest tip is not forgetting, which we were doing too. Once we made it a point to remind throughout the day and really encourage regular potty breaks, like before nap and bedtime AND after waking up, it made a huge difference.


Runnermom-jen March 29, 2012 at 2:13 pm

Hooray!!! No more diapers!! That’s awesome :)


Christine@TheAums March 30, 2012 at 2:11 pm

It’s awesome and strange…but definitely more awesome…thanks Jen!


Ado April 2, 2012 at 3:56 pm

I thought you WERE preggers!
Well congrats on the potty training. We should throw you a potty shower! (-:


Christine@TheAums April 4, 2012 at 12:33 am

Ado, You’re absolutely right…this does call for a potty party!
