Disclaimer: If you don't care about potty training or want to hear about it don't read this post.
I have literally been dreading this day since the day I found out I was pregnant... If you think I am joking.. I am not. Potty training is not fun. Well, to be honest, it is pretty dang awesome seeing her succeed and be so proud of herself. That is an awesome feeling. But the rest of it pretty much sucks.
Okay, I really shouldn't be complaining because today went awesome! We woke up and I took her diaper off. I wanted to try the just be naked approach but since we had been talking to her so much about wearing "big girl underwear" she really wanted to do that. So we put that on and about 10 minutes later while eating breakfast and of course right after I ask her if she has to go to the bathroom and she told me no she goes, "mooommm, I neeeed youuu!!" I walked over to find that she had peed her underwear.
I took her and put her on the potty anyway, explained to her how we go on the potty and not in our underwear because we are not wearing diapers anymore... blah blah blah and all of the stuff but stayed very positive. After that I decided to go with the naked approach.
Now this was MUCH better.. she did not have ONE accident ALL day this way. It was interesting because the first 3 times after the accident that she went I knew she had to go because she would look at me very concerned and say "oh oh oh!" and I would grab her tell her to hold it and run her to the potty. I could tell she could barely hold it. But by the 4th time she said "mommy I need to pee" as she would start walking to the bathroom. I was shocked! I couldn't believe she was doing SO well.
Now during nap time since she's in a crib and I didn't have the plastic liner to go under her crib sheet I put a pull up on her. After her nap her pull up was wet but not even that much.
All day she did not go number 2. Now she's gone number 2 on the toilet before so I'm just thinking she just didn't need to go today so hopefully we can tackle that tomorrow. Hopefully she doesn't go in the night.
So, all in all it was a pretty successful day and I am SO proud of you. But man is it tiring. Having to ask her literally every 10 minutes if she needed to go to the bathroom, and making sure she didn't go off to any corners on her own and all of that really takes it out of you...
Hopefully tomorrow goes just as well, actually hopefully tomorrow goes better. But I am SO beyond proud of her accomplishments today!
