Another milestone in the potty training mission

Abby has been day-time potty trained for a while now and I knew the next step would be working on night-time training. I have been lazy about it and haven't be very proactive. But, I noticed that she was keeping her night-time trainer dry about 98% of the time all on her own. She has woken up in the middle of the night occasionally and said she had to go pee and sure enough I would take her to the bathroom she would do her business and go right back to sleep. I finally realized that she could probably go without a trainer but I wanted to wait for a time when Andrew would be home in case we did have an accident he could help with changing the sheets and so on. So, last night I asked Abby if she wanted to wear a trainer or her big girl underwear and she chose her underwear. When she woke up this morning I had completely forgotten that she wore big girl underwear till she said she needed to go to the bathroom. It was then that I realized she didn't have an accident and kept her underwear dry all night!!! I am so proud of her and thankful because she pretty much did this on her own. There was nothing I did to prepare her for keeping dry at night, it is just something she does. I count my blessings in the potty training department because it has never really been a struggle for us. I guess we can say she is completely potty trained now. I am prepared for the occasional accident. Come on, I am realistic, but it is nice to know that I won't be buying diapers or trainers for about 4 months and then the cycle will start all over with Nonnie!
