My 2 year old daughter is potty training and it’s not going as easy as I thought it would. Whoever says girls are easier has not met my daughter.
Leah has all the signs that she’s ready…she was interested in the potty, using it from time to time on her own and she holds her pee and doesn’t want to go in her diaper. BUT, and herein lies the problem, she also doesn’t want to go on the toilet anymore. She’ll be crossed legged, doing the potty dance but won’t go to the bathroom. So then I take her and sit her on it and she screams, cries, then pees, then smiles. She’s a manic depressant potty trainer.
So the toilet gets a bit of a cold shoulder from her, her diaper gets too much love and not enough action, and her adorable, cute princess underwear has been getting the brunt of her accidents. Lucky me.
Somewhere between taking a pair of urine soak underwear off my little princess, then trying to take off her BM soiled elmo panties (boy is that tough!) and then using a plunger on a clogged toilet, I realized that this would be the perfect next episode of Mike Rowes, Dirty Jobs.
Mike, you are welcome any time. And good luck dear Sir!
No, not really.
But YOU, Moms! Help me! Have you gone through this? We can’t revert back to diapers because she will hold it forever and I don’t want her getting a UTI (urinary tract infection). So please share with me your wise potty training tips! Anything and everything!
Oh and please send “diaper be gone” vibes my way! Thanks!
