Hello from Sturgis!

>> Saturday, February 14, 2009

That would be Sturgis, Michigan as Sturgis, South Dakota does not actually lie between Iowa and Massachusetts.

We had an uneventful drive through Iowa, Illinois and most of Indiana. The fact that we are in Michigan is funny as the Hampton is just over the border from Indiana. Had we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express, half a mile away, we would be in Indiana.

Travel note from today: did you know that the World's Largest Truck Stop is in Iowa?

The girls were both very good; complaints were minimal and they rode very well. Caelan even took a little nap.

Speaking of Caelan... She has been potty training herself in the past week. She's got a bladder like a steel trap. 24 hours of "holding" is not unheard of. But I haven't been forcing her because I tried that with Brenna and nearly tore my hair out.

But the past few days Caelan has been doing a pee-pee dance and fussing when she needs to go. She doesn't want to use a diaper but she doesn't want to sit on the potty. The past three days she has used the potty at least once. Today we had no wet diaper. She may come back from Massachusetts potty trained! Woo-Hoo!

We will hit the road again tomorrow... It's hard to say what time as we are still on central time but in the eastern zone. I should probably set an alarm to make sure we are awake in time for breakfast...

Breaking my own rule of minimal commenting to say I just laughed out loud at the Caelan story.

OH DO I REMEMBER CROSS COUNTRY TRIPS WITH POTTY TRAINING TODDLERS!

LOL.

What timing eh? But it sounds like it's working and if ANY child has a mind of her own and the will to 'hold it' - SHE does! I love that kid.

:)


HAVE A SAFE TRIP - Love Ya!
