so it seems that potty training has come down to a battle of wills, she can do it all, even put on and pull up panties all by herself, wipe (properly) and everything. but it seems that as long as mommy is willing to cave to the diapers she's happy to let me. ENOUGH! at $30 for less than a hundred diapers i put my foot down and told her no more diapers. day three and we are doing good! only one actual accident so far today, the rest were not on the floor but needed new panties while running to the potty, or (my fave) overshooting the potty and hitting the ones shes got around her ankles! one was my fault and she looked devastated (had a hot pan in my hands) but all but the one included most of it going in the potty! we still do diapers for nap and bedtime since i'm not yet willing to wake her up for potty, and we have princess pull-ups and a travel seat for outings. smarties are the treat of choice (they changed their colour to natural) and stern talks for misses. she's responding really well and thinks it's great that the rules apply to mommy and daddy too (she gives us treats! lol!) thanks to my bff for starting her on the treats for this while we were there! she seems to be getting the hint that mommy is not going to cave this time and go back to diapers, so the 'confusion' issue is gone. seriously wondering if that's what has been holding us back, my willingness to let the 'accidents' lead to going back to diapers? this is day three and it's been getting way better each day.
anyone else sick and tired of diapers and starting the training process? elaine how's Grayson doing still?
