Our Nightly Routine

IMG_2601 IMG_2602

is supposed to be brushing our teeth before going to sleep. But it's so hard for us to let her. It would be either Alex would love to brush on her own or she just runs as soon as she hears the word "brush". We even bought her a nice toothbrush a few months ago (with her favorite Barbie photo) but it just wouldn't work. The photos above happened only a few times.

Anyway, we let her use a new toothpaste now and so far she likes it. I just hope that she gets the routine of brushing her after meals and especially before sleeping.

On Alex's potty training, so far we have 4 consecutive days of successes of peeing in the toilet bowl when she wakes up and before going to take a nap in the afternoon. I'm so proud! I realized that we had to do it step by step and not entirely remove her diaper. So now we are looking at removing it next month and see what happens (*crossing my fingers*).

One thing that I've noticed is that when I watch Alex play with her toys, she would let all her dolls and Barney make pee. LOL! And she would ask her toys, "Wee-wee?" all over and over again just like what we are doing to her.

Haaaay, kids are really something! (*grin*)

Enjoy the weekend everybody!

    wow, congratulations on the potty training. good sign.

    we're planning to train jens early. it's just that we always forgot to buy a potty everytime we're at the shops. hehehe.

    jens love to brush his teeth (4 pa lang) kasi its the only thing that he's allowed to put in his mouth and he's actually sucking it. :)

    oh yes, baby girls love to play mommy
