Can We Make It 2 In A Row?

I just had to share my excitement. Faith had NO accidents yesterday (I don't count bedtime and nap). Yahoo AND she drank out of a regular cup. She was excited to repeat the process today at breakfast, but then quickly wanted the sippy cup back when she realized she couldn't carry the cup around with her. But can we have not accidents today? Let's hope so.

WTG Faith, that is wonderful! I hope she gets on a roll now. It must be nice to know that daytime diapers are a thing of the past for your family.

Kaelan is not ready for that yet. He has days where he goes to the potty very well and asks almost everytime when he needs to go. Then there are other days where he freaks out over the mention of the word potty. I'm OK with waiting a little longer. He is a champ with the cup though. He has been drinking out of open cups since a little past 18 months old, we really barely did sippy cups but he was on the bottle til 18 months (I know, bad momma).

And the answer is no. Two accidents. One wasn't really her fault though. Naps and bedtime are obviously a whole other matter and unfortunately she fell asleep randomly and wet. Oh well it's a new day.

Still exciting that you got far enough to even consider two in a row! Biggrin

The drinking-out-of-a-regular-cup is fabulously cool, too. Benjamin's still in the stage where he's obsessed with spitting and gravity... not a good combination. He likes to dribble stuff down his chin on purpose, or lean over his high chair and watch stuff fall out of his mouth onto the floor, or wave his cup around just to watch stuff splatter. Biggrin He needs to come over and play with Faith for a few days so she can be a good example!

That's what my cousin says about her little girl. She's 3 months older than Faith. I just don't understand why some days she gets it and some she doesn't. My boys were definitely WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY easier to potty train. They all trained MUCH later (all of them were 3 yrs old), but there were WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY easier. I never had this many accidents with them.

J has mostly given up on going on the potty now which is disappointing, he had a few days where its all he wanted and if we are out or in the car he'll say he has to go poop (which he says for pee for some reason) and he actually does go when I take him but in general he has lost interest. I would try more but he gets upset when I ask him/take him so I don't want to push it.
He has also started with open top cups but has been spilling stuff deliberately which p's me off lol.

WTG Faith! Progress is progress.

We haven't even really started PTing, Mason would sit on it but never pee, so I kind of put it off for now. I probably should get back on that. And we are still fully using sippys, I think that may be more because I'm not ready to clean up the inevitable mess that real cups will make Blum 3

Surprisingly even though she wasn't feeling great yesterday she had NO accidents. And this morning she went on the actual big potty (vs the little potties we have) and I had no idea she was in there. She put herself on like a big girl and then I heard from across the house "ah du" (aka all done). She had went all by herself and needed wiped. Praying this is a trend we never deter from.

Amber - yeah I think a lot of the cup thing is me not wanting to clean up a mess. Like I need one more thing. The other thing though is even if I was ready to tackle the mess I can't get DH to help me follow through on anything including cups. But that is a whole other post in itself. Not sure I want to full on vent or not though so refraining from posting for now.

yay way to go Faith! yesterday J had a short spell of wanting to pee on toilet again, he said poop so I said quick quick lets go to the toilet...and we caught it just in time, he also peed then refused to put his nappy back on. He kept going to the toilet and trying, we caught one pee and he had one accident. This morning he isnt so bothered. He keeps doing this, he'll tell me he has to and so we go and he does and then he'll have days when he refuses to. It's quite frustrating but I've decided to just go along with what he wants rather than pushing it.
