DD1 was 2 1/2 when I knew she was ready to PT and she was easy peasy. She just had to be ready, and decide that SHE wanted to potty train, I couldn't force it at all or she'd dig in her heels. What turned her on to using the potty was taking her to the store and letting her pick out her own potty.
I put Lainey in undies today because apparently I felt like cleaning up accidents. She now refuses a diaper and refuses the potty. I even offered her marshmallows if she'd try, and she won't. She just says, "I can't" and won't elaborate as to why she can't. I know she's not ready. But it's fine, I'm willing to wait until she is ready. And it will happen.
Agree, skip the little potty and just put a step stool in front of the big potty if he needs help getting up there.
Yay Molly! Good start.
Its been 4 days of accident free for Odin! We were having about 1 per day since training over Thanksgiving then a horrible (2 steps back) day on Thursday last week. He has been staying dry during nap now too, yay! Still using cloth for my own sanity during sleep times though.
Oh, and we went to Costco and shopped (2.5 hour ordeal) and he even used to public toilet while we were there without any issue! Love having just 1 in diapers again.

You know what, I'd like to revise my previous statements. I feel ready to say that Adair is pee trained. She only has very rare accidents in that department, and even fully potty trained kids have OCCASIONAL accidents. What we are stuck on is poop. Poop Poop Poop. Poop is going to be the end of me. REALLY hoping this dairy elimination trial helps sort things out...
That's awesome Joy! I hope he keeps it up.
HUGE Thing this morning! HUGE!!! Lyla watched me pee in the potty and then ran off, I found her in the other bathroom (set up with the step stool and the potty seat insert) trying to get her diaper off. I took the diaper off and sat her on the potty where she started talking about pooping in the potty (she does this and then never poops so I didn't get excited). I told her (obviously!) yes she could poop in the potty. AND SHE DID!!!!! SHE POOPED IN THE POTTY!!! This hasn't happened in months! I hope I don't ruin everything by bragging about it, but I am so stinking excited.
Leo is completely lethargic and sick, poor guy. just doesn't want to move (well hid say he wanted chocolate milk)!
Don't think it will be a great PT day today.

Yay Odin & Lyla!!
I hope Leo feels better soon!
Quick as a bunny. I like that.
I wish my kid would play with toys, but alas, she does not. I bragged too quick. We had an awful potty day after the miraculous poop in the potty this morning. Tomorrow is a new day, right?
