From Brynn…

Brynn wanted to go play outside. She was heading toward the steps on the deck and stopped.
Me to Bill: “Are the bees back because Brynn won’t go down the steps.”
Bill: “I haven’t seen any recently.”
Brynn comes in and says to me: “Mommy there’s a bug on the steps!!”
Me: “Just walk around him. If you don’t bother him he won’t bother you.”
Brynn: “Yes, but I don’t know his name.”

I can see the light….

….at the end of the Huggies tunnel.  Wahoo!

Do you see this, this is a book that my girls loved because that blue button at the top makes the sound of a toilet flushing when you push it.

Recently Brynn made the transition from Pull Ups to underwear for naps.  This means there is just more step for her to take to make us a Huggies-Free home.  Being able to wear underwear to bed!

Last week I decided to take a look at the baby supplies we had on hand. I realized that I had a TON of Huggies wipes.  I wanted them out of my house and I’m sharing the wealth with my brother and a friend of mine. You’re welcome!

I also discovered that there was a stash of Pull Ups in Rylee’s room as well as Brynn’s room.  Oy!  At the rate of using one Pull Up a day, I may never have to buy them again.  Yes, that’s how many we have.  Here’s hoping we don’t have to bring anymore into the house!

In the past month Rylee has made the transition from Pull Ups at night to underwear.  She is feeling like such a big girl and I’m happy that she did it before she turned five. I swear, there were days when I thought that girl would be taking them to college with her.

Last night around 2am I heard Brynn fussing and went in to see what was wrong.  She mumbled to me something about having to pee.  I told her that’s why she had a Pull Up, to just pee in it. I know, I know….a part of me thinks I should have schlepped her to the bathroom to give it try.  But the other part of me realized she wasn’t fully awake and that this trip to the potty could be a complete disaster for both of us.

This morning she did remember the event and talked to me about it.  If she wakes up again and wants to pee in the potty then we will trek across the hall and hope for the best.

Could we be totally Huggies-Free by the end of the year?  I guess I can dream!

*by the way…Huggies in no way sponsored this post, we have been fans of their products for almost five years and we have pretty much only used their products.  We love Huggies, but we’re ready to say good-bye!*
