I love mantras! They get me through a rough day at work, a long run and Scout's temper tantrums. Apparently, my favorite mantra is "It's Okay." Only recently did I realize just how often I repeat these words.
About a month ago, my husband and I ran into a friend, who also happens to live down the street. She told us that one day she and her husband were driving by and they heard me comforting Scout, who was having a temper tantrum, by saying, "It's okay." I looked at her and laughed. I said, "I wasn't comforting Scout. I was comforting me!"
Recently, I observed Scout walking around the living room, patting her doll's back repeating my favorite mantra..."It's okay." She truly is mommy's little girl.
And, on the potty training front. No progress has been made. As soon as we returned home yesterday, I brought her to the bathroom. I tried to hold her on the potty and encourage her to pee. As soon as we left the bathroom she peed on the floor. Go figure!
