arajaneo #widrn Hanging out with this kiddo working on potty training. We just had a success after a day and a half of accidents. She's so stubborn I'm still a little worried, but she's also so happy right now it's infectious. Yay for #dailyingrid! Tagged by @metamarama. 8h
  •   snailmade Well, pooh to those giving you crap! B finally, and abruptly, clicked for both around 3 1/4... after a year of poop in the pants! We got a whole two weeks without diaper cleanup duty. So it'll happen, right after the worst of it! 5h
  •   snailmade Only Ingrid is allowed to give you crap. Maybe Solveig, too. Heehee! 5h
  •   bestcoasty I lost the struggle with a new baby at 2 1/2. We got there around 4 and now I can't even remember what may have felt pretty demoralizing at the time. 4h
  •   macaroniandtulle I totally bribed my oldest to potty train at 3.5ish with Cinderella panties (it worked!) she learned right before her 3rd birthday then completely regressed for an eternity/about 6 months 4h
  •   anyonecanquilt She'll get there when she's ready! My girls are teenagers now but I remember potty training well. You've probably done this already, but my girls loved having a potty chart. We made a poster with their name on it and hung it in the bathroom. I bought special stickers that only got taken out when they went potty! They loved putting their special stickers on their chart. 4h
  •   poppyprint @arajaneo ask around, all highly intelligent children train late. Totally true. 4h
  •   ren_tucker Potty training is the worst. But it will happen one way or another before she goes to kindergarten, and that's all that really matters. 1h
  •   blairs Good times. 25min

arajaneo Solveig + Delauney at SAM. #dailysolveig #latergram 1w
  •   ectotherm Because you have experience with toddlers at art museums - do they enjoy it? I'd like to take mine, but I'm worried the no touching part will infuriate her. 1w
  •   arajaneo @ectotherm We've been taking Ingrid on a regular basis since she was a baby. The Seattle Art Museum has a fantastic playroom for kids, so it's one of the girls' favorite places to go. They do like looking at the art, but I really have to watch them. 1w
  •   arajaneo @ectotherm I guess my take is that if you go regularly they get used to it and can appreciate it. 1w
  •   poppyprint Did you see the amazing quilt @trudys_person made??? 1w
  •   arajaneo Yes, it's gorgeous! I've always thought a Delauney would make a beautiful quilt. @trudys_person 1w
  •   ectotherm I think I just need to get over my fears & take her. Maybe start with the sculpture garden. Thanks for the input. 1w
  •   tamieherin @faithandmac - an outing when you are feeling brave. 1w
