Padyn's Really a Big Girl Now

Even though Padyn has been potty trained for over a year and has woken up with a dry diaper almost every single morning during the past 6 months, she has refused to wear underwear at night. Whenever Daddy or I brought it up, she would tell us she'd do it when she was four. Or she'd cry.

But a couple weeks ago I told her that when we ran out of pull-ups this time, I wouldn't be buying anymore. She was going to be sleeping in underwear. She almost cried. She really fought me on it, but we stayed strong. Well, actually, we just didn't mention it anymore.

Until last night. Daddy came in and said she didn't have any pull-ups left, so it was time for underwear. She actually was excited about it! I was ready for a battle and here she was thrilled. Fabulous! I love it when your kids fool you in a good way.

This morning when Daddy went in to deliver their morning beverages I heard her say, "I slept in my underwear and it's dry!"

What a big girl you are, Padyn. We're so proud of you.
