    Potty Training Day 4 Score Sheet

    July 20, 2007 by Brandy Vencel

    I promise to quit keeping score by the time she’s twenty. Scout’s honor. {Of course, I wasn’t actually a Scout.} Today was the best of times as well as the worst of times. We had a great success at naptime, only to be followed by a major failure.

    But we did take a full twelve minute walk without disaster. I can envision myself leaving my house again in about three weeks.

    Until then, I must say that there were more highs than lows today, and that is all that I can ask of someone who, after a particularly major failure, patted me compassionately on my shoulder and said, “Sowwy, Mommy.” {And I melted.}

    Today’s scores:
    Successes +10
    Failures -1
    Major failures -2
    Naptime bonus +2
    Nighttime bonus 0

    This makes today’s total a whopping +9.

    Yay, A! (and A’s Mommy!)

    We are all cheering for you over here!

    Brandy- Karlos only had two major failures (one at our friends house, all over her bathroom, ask me about it sometime and we’ll comiserate) and I thought I was going to lose my mind. I would have given up after the first one or two if it were me and Bobby. You have got a lot of fortitude!
