Blogging about life in Minnesota, raising our six kids with Down syndrome while battling Breast Cancer.

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor in the morning the devil says, "Oh shit! She's up!"

The last one is done!

I was going to post this a couple of days ago, but was afraid of jynxing myself.

A week ago I almost threw in the towel. I told myself "This is crazy. Why are you worrying about this while you're trying to go through chemo at the same time. LET IT GO Leah, just LET IT GO!"

And so I did.

And today, just one week later, I am declaring Audrey POTTY TRAINED!

Over the weekend Dean was outside with all the other kids. Audrey and I came in for a drinks. I checked my email and then I heard it…the music on her potty chair. It only works if the kid pees in it. I went into the bathroom and there she sat, in the dark, clapping for herself!!!

Oh Audrey! You are AMAZING!

She is taking herself, (she needs some help getting pants up/down) trotting herself into the bathroom several times a day. Waking up dry in the morning and going right to the potty, staying dry all day long.

This is it. Done. I have just potty trained my very last child.

Hooray!! Nice work, Audrey!

I guess there's no potty boot camp for Owen this summer. Kick cancer's ass and then we'll talk about next summer instead!!! :)

Awesome job Audrey. I bet she looked very pleased with her self when you walked into the bathroom. My freind told me toilet training was easy. I had my stickers all ready to go. Three hrs into training my triplets i phoned her up. I had three puddles on the floor, 2 wet dining chairs and at least two couch cushions. I had scrubbed them and had them outside drying. When i told my friend she laughed herself silly. Ah fun times. You deserve a medal for doing it 7 times.

Relle, you are THE BOSS trying to train 3 kids at once. That's an awful lot of vigilance required!
