Naked Tea Party

The gooyls are talking on a collegiate level. Ok, not really, but they can put together sentences and thoughts. They continue to amaze us with their smarts. AND the potty training has taken off like Niagara Falls. I've mentioned in the past that they weren't potty trained or really trying and well I was ok with that. I'm from the mindset where as not to cause any undue stress on girls or mommy. For what? Just for the sake of getting them out of diapers?! No. Big. Deal. However, out of the blue (today) they started peeling their diapers off to race to bathroom to go potty! Wooohooo. And no one 's stressed or upset... Big bonus.

I had the following conversation with the girls tonight upon returning home from work.

Katie: running to greet me..."Mommy, mommy I poop in the potty". Gushing and giggling as she pats her butt and shows me her underpants. Worn fashionably over her diaper.....

Me: "Katie, did you poop in the potty"? Thinking to myself, yeah sure if only.......however out of the corner of my eye I see Mai's head bobbing up and down confirming she did.

Katie: "I poop in the butt"! Pointing to her butt.

Me: smirking "Yes, you have poop in the butt, but you go on the potty".


Upon daddies return home Katie takes off running to the bathroom whips of her diaper and tosses it on the floor and squeals "Katie go potty".

Dh: repeating for for me as if I couldn't hear.... "She said she has to go the potty". Which meant are you going to take her?

Me: "mmmmm, well take her to the potty". Duh, as I continue to prepare dinner.

Dh: "She's already on the potty". With A look of disbelief on his face.

Katie: "I did it, I did it, I pee'd in the potty". And she did!

Not to be outdone seconds later Abbey yips "I pee'd in the potty mommy, I pee'd". As I turn around to acknowledge her she is carrying the potty full of the golden liquid over her head like a world heavy weight champ. Oh, my little he-man wrestler!

Me:
"Abbey, did you poo big"? We rate their poo's.... sick, I know.

Abbey: "
Like daddy"! I nearly split a gut..especially since no one gets in the bathroom when daddy's in there. He likes his privacy. I wish I could get so lucky. I have an audience when dumping!

They sat down at their table minutes later and had a proper tea party to celebrate their accomplishment. Naked as a stripper! That's my girls.....

Update: It's 11:20am eastern time and we have been running back and forth to the potty all morning. Still in dry pants! We may be onto something here........I've never washed my hands so much in my entire life. I'd make a terrible doctor.

awwww...cute. Maybe you should invite Piper over...she loves to do everything "nakie"

Awesome news on the potty training, or should I say potty self evolving? Well done...it's always harder with two, sounds like you did the right thing!

Piper was...definately early, but she just could not cope with a poopy diaper. we were lucky with that one, plus, years of Nannying, well, you can't beat that out of me...she was out of diapers at 16 months! BUT...there is a caveat to that...her potty training was 'parent directed' so we did have to sense when she needed to go. Mostly she would tell us, but we also did the 45 minute rule...so...in reality a lot more work than just waiting.

The gouils are gorg-juss!

the play house! It's too cute!

Rhonda said...

Anyways, congrats on the potty success!

Franceskasjourneyhome said...

Awesome!!! What big girls!!! I never had to potty train Astrud she just wanted to potty like mommy!! And she did and there was never another diaper in sight and never ever had an accident, ever, can you believe that!!!! Now what are the odds that I am going to get that lucky with Franceska!!!

ps love the naked tea party!!!!

And as far as "dump privacy", don't think as they get older that you will get more privacy...not gonna happen!!!

krj said...

Well thank GOD she didn't spill the prize while she held it over her head!! Way to go to your girls though!

And yeah, the medical profession has DEFINITELY aged my hands before their time, holy crap! Some days they HURT from so much washing. And they use that industrial "this kills everything" soap in the hospitals too.

crazylady said...

HEY! you stole my pic from my post!

Naked at the dinner table... I see nothing wrong with that. Our girls were bottomless all summer (which made Grandpa slightly uncomfortable) but it was the only way to go.

redmaryjanes said...

Classic! We have some toddler nudity quite often over here too. GREAT job girls going on the potty!!

Lisa said...

My Ellie loves nudity too, ha! Congrats on the potty training!!!

Yoli said...

That is the cutest thing ever! Look at those two! Congratulations Rony on a great and gentle way of potty training your babies.

Rony said...

I'd rather see them naked at the dinner table as to me! Ewwww.

QJ-VNmama said...

Hysterical!!!!! Congratulations!! Wish Natalie was so inclined.

Hugs,
Sue

Jen M. said...

LaLa said...

Way to go crazy girls....Annslee rarely wears clothes so this is NOT shocking to me.

Oh, and Daddy gets to potty alone here too..what is up with that!!

kerri said...

Congrats to the girls on their accomplishment!!
I haven't peed alone for 5 years, good thing I don't have preformance anxiety, LOL!!

Gail said...

Naked tea parties are the best! Your twins are adorable, sounds like they're on the way to be potty trained. Whoo hoo for you! I was never in a hurry to potty train my kids, I figured it would happen in time and it always did. :)

Fliss and Mike Adventures said...

I think that I have to go potty cause I nearly peed in my pants from laughing... the pics of the girls running around starkers and at their tea party... to funny hey, a girl has to 'air' things out... I understand what you mean about the no privacy... I was the same way with my nieces/nephews... no privacy when they were around... or with my sisters for that matter... hehehe

cougchick said...

The Hubs and I had a naked tea party just this morning. How about that?

So glad the potty training is over. Now if I could just get those boys to flush.

I taught all three boys to pee sitting down and it was much better. They can't aim worth sour owl sh*t until about age 8.

Sophie's Mom said...

Cougchick - my boy is 8 and thinks the back of the toilet (inside of the toilet seat cover) is a backboard for basketball, or either that he has a POWERFUL stream!

So anyway... congrats on the training success! Are you sure they weren't playing strip poker?

Cute buns!

Bonnie'n'Clyde said...

I would've entitled that post "Naked Lunch".
Look at all that booty-licious toddler-hood!

Truly Blessed said...

Good for the girls, and good for Mommy!

BTW, congrats on the new job too. All in all, a successful week at your house!

nikki said...

Oh GOOD JOB GIRLS!!!
That is BIG news...

and there is NOTHIN' better than a naked tea party.
Cheers!

mommy24treasures said...

oh how wonderful they did it all by themselves!
Caitlyn walks around here nakey too. Half the time we have just given up and let her do it. My mom and dad think we're crazy. Oh,
and we hear the I poop big like daddy comment too. ugh! I don't know where they get this stuff sometimes.

Beverly said...

I love nekkid tea parties. **snick** So much fun. So cute. Such great blackmail pics.

Great news. Always let them potty train themselves because less stress on the parents. We rate Glenys' poo too from hard and hurt to sick or extremely loose and from much to less. Glenys has always had a tendency to stop up though so I kind of have to gage when more or less juice is needed in the old diet. Funny about her, she eats enough or so I thought veggies to help but it apparently isn't enough.

Heather said...

Way to go, girls!

We eat all of our meals naked. It cuts down on laundry.

Amy said...

OH how cute! Olivia loves running around naked...she does it everytime she gets done bathing. Last night she was doing that in her play kitchen :)

Nancy said...

BOY...Naked girls having tea...guess, like mother like daughters.....

girl of a thousand blogs said...

hope they don't sit on a sugar cube...

be careful about rating their poops, because it never ends. my *11* year old son came out of the bathroom yesterday with a full report for me.

Lauren and Ed said...

Way to go girls! Now mommy can spend that diaper money on herself! :) Seriously, Roni, they are so sweet and gorgeous. You are so lucky to have twins!

Kimber said...

I laughed so hard at the convo.
