Riley is still recovering from her ear infection. She's a slightly lower energy and much lower appetite, but she's much better. She is also on day 2 of antibiotics and no longer contagious. This morning I was ready for Riley to spend the day with her friends and so was she.
Having been sick myself while caring for a sick toddler I was way behind. I spent the day cleaning the kitchen, catching up on emails, working on Mike's birthday present and such. I even took a nice 2hr nap.
I had a nice early dinner and then Mike and the kids came home. I had a text from D. that Riley had started eating normally later in the day. It was a relief since while I was there she refused to eat anything. I wasn't too worried about her, but I didn't even think about what kind of potty day she'd have. I had set my expectations very low in the morning and by the evening had forgotten them entirely.
I heard Mike say "Bring it to Mommy. Riley, show Mommy your sticker for no accidents." She came matching toward me with her take home folder in her outstretched arms. She had a big note in blue marker with a smiley face that said "No Accidents All Day". The note was accompanied with 2 Wonder Pets stickers. Riley was very concerned with liberating the stickers from the page, but I think also proud. I know I sure was!
Mike also reported that D. had been very impressed with Riley going to the potty herself and pulling her pants down by herself. It was a red letter potty day for Miss Roo for sure. Now her away from home potty skills have caught up with her at home potty skills, finally. Hurray!
