Despite no encouragement from mommy, my kids decided they were ready to potty train. Jaileigh pretty much decided that she was done with diapers one day and that was it. Annie really wants to follow her lead but can't grasp what she is supposed to be doing. She has figured out how to take her diaper off now so she can sit on the potty. We also have to put underwear over her diaper so she fits in.
For all you mommies dreading the potty training day, it's not too bad. I think its 100% easier because my kids decided they were ready. We aren't finished potty training yet so I may be speaking too soon.
