Potty Training Just Got Real

Thursday, May 22, 2014

So, this week I finally took the leap...the REAL potty training. Up until now it was something like this...

1. Put daughter in underwear
2. Daughter pees on floor, carpet, couch
3. I get frustrated and put her in diapers

This was getting both of us no where. So I finally manned up (womaned up??) and got rid of EVERY diaper in the house...EVERY one. This was super scary, for me. So here are a few things I've learned in the last few days.

1. If I have an inkling that my little brown eyed beauty is about to pee/poop...I should trust that feeling.

2. I have never in my life been so excited to see someone poop.

3. When selecting shoes for the day, pick ones that are easily rinsed and collect urine.

4. Just because you've potty trained a child, doesn't make it any easier...or make you feel any less like a first time parent.

5. "Let it go" makes an AMAZING potty training song....seriously, try it out...
     Let it go, let it go don't hold it in anymore Let it go, let it go wipe your butt and slam the lid...

Things are improving on the potty training front (only ONE accident today) and I just might survive this...maybe.
