Raise your hand if you like changing diapers. *Looks around* Anybody? Me neither. I am so ready for KJ to potty train. Alas, she is out to sabotage my plans. She shows all the “signs” for a toddler who is ready to potty train and she hates to have a dirty diaper, regularly demanding to be “Chain Mommy” as soon as she finishes.
Once you sit her on that potty, it’s a completely different story. It’s like she has no idea what she’s supposed to be doing on there. But you see, I know better, I know she knows what to do. Two months ago she would at least go when you put her on there…now, nothing.
Today she wanted to wear panties, so I put a pair on her and asked her repeatedly if she needed to go. When she finally decides yes, we grab a couple Dora books to keep her on the potty and head to the bathroom. Twenty-five minutes later, nothing. So she decideds she’s done and ready to go play…runs to her room, stands in front of her baby doll crib and pees.
Sigh. I guess the carpet neeed to be cleaned after all. Naptime. Diaper. I am so weak. She’s so different than KG. KG was 2 years 1 day whenI started with her, four days later we were done. Totally. It was great. Should have known potty training her would go just like everything else does with KJ…her way.
Any advice for a clueless potty training fool?
