She's not ready and neither am I

Yesterday afternoon I decided to try the potty with Laney. She has had a potty since Christmas and it sits in our bathroom collecting dust. Oh once in a while she gets me excited by asking if sh can sit on her potty or she will follow me into the bathroom and say, "I potty too mommy." BUT never has one drop of pee pee entered the potty.

So I decided that yesterday I would but her in "big girl underwear" and let her run around the house in them. We have hardwood floors so it would have been easy to clean up. So I gave her gallons of juice and milk and the waiting game began. I waited and waited and waited and nothing. I asked her a million times if she had to go pee pee in her big girl potty and every single time I got, "no mommy." I even bribed her with candy and still no pee pee. I gave up and went in to load the dish washer. In the middle of it Laney ran in and announced that she had pooped in her "big girl underwear" and then she said, "Can I have my candy now?"

Needless to say she is not ready and neither am I... but here are some pictures of her attempting to go on the potty.

Your result for The Best Thing About You Test...


Humility is your strongest virtue. You are humble.

Humility is the defining characteristic of an unpretentious and modest person, someone who does not think that he or she is better or more important than others. And you? When you do the right thing, you're doing it for all the right reasons. All 7 virtues are a part of you, but your humility runs deepest.

It is likely you're a quiet type. But if not, then you just have dark, secret side that loves to give.

Humble famous people: JD Salinger, Isaac Newton, Harry Potter (pre-puberty)

Your raw relative scores follow. 0% is low, and 100% is perfect, nearly impossible. Note that I pitted the virtues against each other, so in some way these are relative scores. It's impossible to score high on all of them, and a low score on one is just relatively low compared to the other virtues.


20% Compassion

33% Intelligence

75% Humility

56% Honesty

38% Discipline

43% Courage

50% Passion
