Yesterday I was feeling rather frisky and decided that it was time for Sierra to go diaper-free. As soon as she woke up I dragged her to the potty, stripped her diaper off and put her on the toilet. We sat, we sang, we sat some more, we told stories we sat some more, then…. KER-PLOP! She pooped AND peed!
Taking this as a good sign I put her in big-girl undies. We had a few successes, and even more accidents. Today started out the same way. Now my laundry basket is full! Whose bright idea was this anyways?
This potty training thing really sucks. Part of me just wants to pack it in and call it quits and wait until Sierra is back in homecare. That way her homecare provider can do the training for me. But I also know that it takes 21 days to form a habit. And seriously, 21 days really isn’t all that long in the grand scheme of things, yanno? If
I keep her in big-girl undies and haul her off to the potty every hour, will she "get" it? Will she begin to know when she has to pee and tell me BEFORE she pees? How many days does that take? My washing machine and dryerr are looking for a break from all of this action
