Addy has been nearly perfect at home (even in diapers, underwear, or naked, I can't think of ANY pees or poops in anything other than the potty for the past four days while awake) but refuses to tell us outside the house so far until after the fact, and always says no when we ask. She hates sitting on large toilets with no little seat insert and will do it for only about ten seconds before wanting to get down. At least it's a good start...but it's a little frustrating, too!
Oh, and now that she's been having so much naked time, we're starting to have some serious issues with genital curiosity. It's hilarious and gross all at the same time. We don't want to give her a complex about it, so we've just been telling her it's important to keep it clean, let's not play with it--it's for peeing only--but she keeps either trying to peer inside or sticking things in there! Yesterday when I was at work, she put a penny in there, and then told DH "Look, Daddy! Look!" I really do not want to end up in the ER for this.
We had two PT fail moments yesterday. The first was a mommy fail and the second was a toddler fail. They were followed by two awesome PT wins though!
Unbeknownst to me at 6am, Teagan had a touch of diarrhea. She said "poops" and headed for her potty. She was diaperless and I figured she had it so I left her to it. She did not have it. We both required a shower. Right after that she was dancing around in the living room and just peed on the floor. At least she yelled out "I PEED". So after that, we headed to the Children's Museum to meet up with Sara & Rowan and while there she looked at me and said "poop". I rushed her to the potty but it was too late. She'd pooped in her diaper. She tried though and it was my fault for not getting her there fast enough. The mushy poop did not help. We got home and she again announced that she had to poop so I took her to the big potty to find that her diaper was dry (finally realized it was a diaper-required day) and she proceeded to poop on the potty. She was quite pleased. Soooo, she's really trying!! I now feel super bad for all you multi-poops per day families.
Oh my Leigh! Aiden constantly plays with himself, but really it dangles and after a bit it well, goes up. He thinks it's fascinating.
Erin, she's doing great! Aiden doesn't realize he can control his poop, so I insist on him wearing underwear to help contain the mess in case he does poop during a diaper refusal time. This morning he was fine with his diaper, so no PTing.
Talking about putting things down there, I mentioned on the weekend that Juliet took a marker and gave her self a generous crop of orange pubic hair. She had it all the way back to her bum. It took two baths and a generous coat of diaper cream to get it all out. I was worried it would irritate her skin, but no. Good thing they were the super washable ones from Crayola.
She was accident free at home last night and this morning. Tonight, I had put a diaper on her to put her to bed. She peed in her diaper, while siting on her potty. I was not fast enough to get to her and take it off. Then later on this evening, she was layng on a pillow, beare bum, and forgot herself. She did run imediatelly to the potty.
We are making progress.
In two weeks, my sister is getting married. We will be gone for over a week. That includes a 800km (12 hours with all the stops to keep me sane) trip to my home town of Gaspe. Then we will drive to Quebec City. My Dad has to go to the cardiologist there for tests. Then back to Gaspe, and back to Saint John a few days later. We'll see what that does to the potty training. Juliet use to be really good an the road, and not pee while in her carseat. I might come back.
Ooooo good luck on that trip on the potty training front!
Aiden peed on the couch this afternoon. Is is wrong that i'm happy that it was DH's side and not mine? lol. I put him in a diaper after that and an hour later he took it off, gave it to me (wet lol), and asked for a treat. Oh lordy.
So, Adair did not have any PT success at school today, but she did try three times (twice in class and once with me on the way out) so that's something. And she had another totally successful evening at home. I'll take it!
Good luck on the trip, Louise! You're brave--I think the car seat is probably the LAST place I'll attempt going diaperless!
