What I'm Hating Right Now

Here's a common scenario around here:

One of the girls has to go pee.  I go in with her to help.  They aren't very good at wiping and sometimes have a hard time getting their pants up and down.  I help them wipe, help them pull up their pants and underwear, remind them to flush, and help wash and dry their hands.  It seems to take forever, but eventually we get it all done.  Then, just as we're finishing up, or maybe about 2-3 minutes later, the other one announces that SHE now has to go.  Rinse.  Repeat.  What feels like 30 minutes later and totally exhausted, I think I'm finally done in the bathroom and start to resume whatever it was I was doing, only to be told by the first that she now has to poop.  Grrrr....

As glad as I am that they're potty trained, I SO can't wait for them to complete the entire process BY THEMSELVES!  And why is it that they can sometimes go, like, 5 or so hours without needing to go, but if we are at a restaurant or someplace and I have to go, hoping for once to just be able to go by myself, they will without fail have to go, even though they just went less than a half hour ago?  And not just one of 'em but both?  Can I EVER catch a break?

Oh, I completely sympathize...and I'm only 1/2 the way to where you are! One of our girls is potty-trained. It's not bad at home, but she Wears.Me.Out when we're at a restaurant or at the zoo or something. Her sister is still in diapers...and while I am ready for her to make the transition, too...there's part of me that knows how much "easier" diapers are on a mama!

Ages and stages...this, too, shall pass...but it sure is exhausting! :)
