Charlotte - 3 yrs


Well, we sent Charlotte in to day care in underwear today - no diaper.  I also sent in lots and lots and lots of changes of clothes, and made sure that she was wearing the plastic shoes.

Since we had the long weekend and all our projects were indoors, she spent all weekend in undies with the exception of dinner at vynehorn's and a picnic at another friend's house.  They both have carpet.  She took to it like a pig to... well, she took to it very well.  A few minor accidents, but nothing noteworthy.  I don't expect that today will go as well, because there are way more distractions at daycare than there are at home.  At day care though, someone else gets to clean up.  :-)

She's very excited.  I'm not exactly excited about doing a short load of laundry every day or two, but that'll be temporary.

Of course, now instead of traveling with a few extra diapers and diaper covers, I'm going to have to travel with half her wardrobe - and the days of going into the store and leaving the diaper bag in the car are OVER.

If she follows her previous pattern with walking and talking, we're pretty much done.  There's going to be a lot of fine tuning, but she clearly has the idea, which was really most of the battle.

Let's all think dry thoughts for Charlotte...
