We have a WINNER!!

In a surprising turn of events, KAYDENCE is the winner of the Potty Training Quint Olympics!!! Yay, Kaydence! So far she is the only quint to consistently be accident free---even at night!

Gold Medal Winner: Kaydence!

When we first started potty training, I was sure that Kaydence would be last. She always likes to take life at her own pace. She is usually the last person eating at the table, she was the last one to walk, and she doesn't score very high in any Quint Olympic events that require speed. However, after five weeks of potty training, she clearly passed the others and is currently the only one I would call "potty trained". I guess this is a good example of the tortoise and the hare, where slow and steady wins the race!

Though no one else has finished the "race", Ryder is currently the silver medal contender with Kassidy and Rustin vying for bronze. Kyndall continues to be completely apathetic towards all attempts at potty training. She would much rather cause trouble in the bathroom than use the toilet!

Kyndall in time out after flushing an entire roll of toilet paper down the toilet, causing it to overflow and flood the bathroom (while I was frantically trying to get dinner made). She clearly feels a lot of remorse for her misdeeds...NOT! In fact, when Kaydence saw how much fun Kyndall was having, she begged to be put in time out too. Perhaps I need to come up with a more effective consequence!

The weather here in Austin has been SO beautiful lately! I took the quints to the park last week to take advantage of the great temperatures---who knows how long they will last! Here are a couple of pictures from the park:

DON'T FORGET to tune in to TLC this Monday night for "Texas Quints"! Two back-to-back episodes will air starting at 9:00 pm in Austin (check your local listings...it's different everywhere).

Congratulations to Kaydence and to you too Mom! Keep up the good work. Ya know they say that there was never a child that entered Kindergarten that was not Potty Trained.

I absolutely LOVE the picture of Kyndall in time out!! That will be a blackmail picture later down the road. Priceless!

I love that picture of Kyndall. I think perhaps baby jail may not be working for her anymore.

I'm so happy to see that Kyndall is wearing the SHIRT.
