Sasha Using the Potty

I kept Brookelyn home from school yesterday because she just didn't seem to feel well. I brought Brayden and Sasha to school thinking the house would be quieter so Brookelyn could sleep. She was tired for about an hour in the morning and then I couldn't get her to keep quiet. She was fine, which was great, but I didn't get a thing done all day. She was actually a wild little thing. When I went to pick up Sasha, one of her teachers told me that she peed in the potty! I was so happy for her. And it was cute that her teacher was just as excited about it as I was. Today when I picked her up from school I was told that she pooped in the potty! Yeah! She sits on our potty at home once a day or so and will give it a try before she gets off. She is not interested in me singing or whatever other trick I use to keep her up on there. She will only last a minute and then she wants DOWN. She is a very determined or strong willed little girl. Sometimes when I pick her up from school she is inside the class because she won't keep her jacket on. Usually when I go inside it is just her and one of her teachers and the teacher is doing her hair or playing some game with her. Hmmm...I think not putting her jacket on works for her. The days she is outside and is wearing her jacket, she will take it off as soon as she sees me and hand it to me. Obviously, she feels strongly about wearing a jacket at school. What is funny is that she loves wearing jackets. In the morning she puts her socks and shoes on and then tries to get her jacket off of the hanger. She wants it zipped up and the hood on.
After we got home today I went to give Sasha a kiss and she felt warm to me. I kept checking for the next hour and she seemed a little warm. Then she wanted me to hold her and wouldn't let me put her down, which isn't like her. I took her temperature and it was 102.3 under her arm. Poor thing! So now I will be staying home with her tomorrow, which actually will be very nice for both of us. I bought a new potty chair for her so she and I can set it up. I would go ahead and start potty training her but it is chilly here still. I would rather wait for it to be warmer so she could run around naked. We'll see.

Sorry she is sick.
We are not starting potty training for a good while around here. Our kid has no interest in anything related to it.

I hope she feels better soon. I don't believe in rushing the potty training, either. I say, when they're ready, they're ready. :)

Feel better soon, guys!!!!!!
