I should have known.
Aubrey has never been like her brother. But that is the way God made her. Special. Crazy. Fun. Jumps off the top stairs and doesn't look back fun. Breaks her crib and climbs out kinda girl. She is cute as ever & loves to laugh at life. I should have known potty training would be training for me.
Potty training at my house has gone like this...

Check that off the list.
