when alex asked her if she wanted to go out and buy some big girl undies she said YES!
we let her pick out her favorites at the children's place, and then got a few more at target - they were all out of all of the fun stuff - no princesses, fairies, dora, or sesame street. we did end up getting her some training pants as well. we changed her into undies right at the mall, and she did great! we used the bathrooms at several fine retail establishments, then we took her for a haircut. she fell asleep in her stroller, and i was terrified that she'd have an accident, but she slept for almost two hours, woke up and i took her to the bathroom about half an hour later and all was good! since we were having such an amazing day already, we decided to watch "toy story". penny is aware of the characters, but had no idea of the story, and she totally dug it! she had an accident after the movie, but that was really our fault, as we went straight into family band time without checking in to see if she needed to go. we put her to bed in training pants, which look TOTALLY RIDICULOUS, but will hopefully get the job done.
