Momma, I'm ready for college!

I had hesitated writing about this subject again for fear that we wouldn't succeed.

But, succeed we have!!! After dreading it like the plaque and even enduring some mild anxiety over it, we have completed weaned our baby, er 3 year old, of her "cassie". It wasn't pretty, but in a matter of days, it's done. Last night, she only asked about it once - major victory! We've even asked ourselves why we didn't do it sooner, but quite frankly, we just weren't ready! But victory is now ours!

Accomplishments of LeeLee this summer are great and mighty:

potty-trained - check!
"Cassie" given up - check!
Can swing herself and pump her legs to go high - check!
Can swim underwater - check!
Toddler bed rail removed - check!

Why, it must be about time for this girl to get her own apartment! Just kidding, I don't want her growing up too fast. But, I am so proud of her, she's come a long way this summer! And she does still need/want me more than any other! A momma's dream come true!

Way to go L! That's a lot in one summer! Good for you guys!!

We were mostly potty trained last summer. However, still having problems not wanting to stop playing and going to use the potty so, tiny accidents occur! Don't know what to do about that???
A is like a fish in the water too! Weird b/c J was always afraid at her age.
In regards to your other post, I wish she did have a little fear of water!! None is not a good thing!!
