In my effort to become a diaper-free house, there were some definite highlights. First, Saturday night I showed off my skills as a master seamstress when I turned some toddler undies into some doll undies. I was completely winging it. I didn't have a pattern. Not that it really would have made a huge difference since I haven't sewn anything complicated enough to need a pattern in over 10 years. But I got a sewing machine for Christmas, so I decided to attempt to sew some doll undies rather than stapling them together like I did for The Princess' potty party. Yes, you read that right. But they were DOLL panties. No children were harmed by the staples throughout the course of the January 2009 potty party.
Anyhow, my attempt resulted in an Elmo thong...
(Don't look too closely. I TOLD you I am not a sewing queen, and I threw these together at 11 pm on Friday night!)
Then, as I was getting things in place for the next morning, I noticed this:
Yep, I got the boy version at the library by mistake. I really didn't want to have to add an anatomy lesson to the day, so I strategically placed my finger over Joshua's boy parts while reading this book.
Yet even with the few glitches, the potty party was a success. We finished off the day with some congratulatory big girl presents: a Minnie Mouse swimsuit from Daddy, Rapunzel sunglasses from Mommy, and princess flip flops from big sis. Bean had to wear everything when she took Emma out to swing before bed that night. It was a little cold though, so Minnie had to hide under a jacket.
How was YOUR weekend?
