Abby's fish

Abby's teachers in the two's told her they would buy her a fish if she started using the potty. Just when I was ready to give up she finally decided to get serious and do just that. That was back in December and she hasn't stopped since. We have has very few accidents. I would say less then five. She still wears a pull up at night though. She is not always dry in the morning when she wakes. She changes to panties as soon as she gets up. There have been a couple times where I have forgotten to change her to a pull up before she goes to sleep and she did stay dry but don't know if I'm ready to chance it yet. Anyhoo back to her fish. They did get her one. He is a Betta and she named him Fishie :) I have never had a Betta but have to say they really are perky little guys. They have a lot of personality and seem to really look at you and follow your movements. They almost remind me of little puppy's. Okay maybe I have gone to far there but they are quite cute and low maintenance. You just have to keep their water clean and change it every one to two weeks. I always feel sorry for the Betta's I see at W*almart and P*etsmart all cramped in those pitiful little cups. Contrary to popular belief they really don't like that and prefer larger tanks. Ours is 2.5 gallons. So go ahead and save one of the little guys next time your a W*almart or P*etsmart. They always have way to many for sale :( Below are some pictures of Abby and Fishie :) Kind of cool but would have turned out better had I used my better camera.

Great pictures! I'm glad that potty training is going well! (We're still using Pull-ups at night, and even some naptimes too...it takes a while to let those go.)
