Pretoria Zoo today. I was a bit dissapointed in the way the Zoo is being kept. A lot of the cages were empty and the enclosures were overgrown making it difficult to see the animals. We took the cablecar to the top and walked down- with the pram, negotiating lots of stairs. lol
A few pics of the day

The pic is of Grandiflora Diaspora- it is indigineous to South Africa. To be honest the flower reminds me a lot of Blackeyed Susan vine. Although that is of course a creeper.

It's nice to have everyone home again.

Each player makes a list of eight random facts/habits about themselves.
At the end of your list, choose eight people to to tag and list their names.
Leave them a comment on each of their websites to let them know that they have been tagged.
The people tagged will write a post on their own website about their eight things, post these rules, and tag eight others.
1. I am 2 years old.
2. I am in full temper tantrum stage and I know how to do it with great gusto.
4. When I speak on the phone I wave regally goodbye. It doesn't matter that you cant see me.

It seems al went well yesterday. She made the trip in the car as well a a quick trip to the shops without incident. At 5 ish she insisted on going to the loo. She seemed a bit miffed when I put her nappy on for the night -lol.
We'll tackle that once she's been down to the coast.
She just didn't make a poo at all yesterday- we'll need to watch that.
Dinner is roast chicken with veg

I've decided to post our progress with regards to Carmen's potty training. Except it doesn't feel like there is much progress. If anything this might just offer a few hints of how not to do it.
The daymom has started her about 2 month ago with just sitting her on the potty at least once a day and getting her to used it. This has by all accounts gone well- most days she does a pee and a poo. She is also training with another 2 year old girl- which helps. The other little girl has since progressed and is almost dry. Her mom made an effort in the afternoons when she got home(mom works half day)
So since last week when I got home I took C's nappy of and just let her run about,. from this I learned that around 5-5:154 she has a pee and sometimes a poo. She made a pee once in the pottie and a poo once in the pottie. Other times she just made a booboo on the floor.
Saturday after her nap I took of her nappy and she stayed dry until I bathed her at 7. I couldn't believe this.
Sunday she insited on taking of her nappy when she woke up- made a big thing about sitting on the pottie- and not doing anything. She did this a few times then made a booboo at 9:30, 9:45 and 10:30- al on our floor. Then we went to the shops- and I put on a nappy. After that we left for my mom and I kept her nappy on for the duration of the visit.
After we got home I let her run nappy free. She made a poo in the garden.
No accidents after that, stayed dry until I bathed her at 7.
I asked the daymom today to let her run nappy free and packed in extra sets of clothes.
Lets see how that goes
Dinner was cheese and wine
