15 Oct Potty Training Redux
So… your homegirl Zoe isn’t interested in a potty.
I know, I know, she’s only (almost) two, it’s not the biggest thing in the world. I get that. Big sister, Izzy, wasn’t fully trained until well over 2.5, and she regressed when baby sister was born. So, technically, she wasn’t fully potty trained until three. With Izzy, I didn’t stress about it (too much). She went at her pace, and when she was ready, she was ready.
So… what’s the problem?
I have an answer for that. YOUR girl Zoe won’t keep a pull up on. She will take it off before you even have it on her well. And if you don’t catch this, she will release her burdens wherever she feels like it. Poop in the rocking chair, on top of a pillow pet, … IN THE CORNER BESIDE THE POTTY. *heavy sigh*
We’ve picked out cute panties, have a cute potty seat. She knows what using the potty is, and she can come and tell me after she’s gone. Panties + waterproof liner thingy doesn’t seem to be getting the message across, because she won’t tell me until after she’s already gone it.
I’ve done all of the tips, etc, so I guess it’s just gonna take time. And maybe I’m being impatient because I don’t feel like cleaning up pee. Wait, scratch that, the pee isn’t that bad. I can just run the carpet cleaner for that. It’s that OTHER stuff, that if she is alone in her room from her nap that she will smear allllllll over the place, creating an hours-long job while I decontaminate her, her room, and everything in the room. *sigh*
There’s no point to this, no real questions, but… pray for me y’all, because a pull up and some duct tape is looking realllll good right now.
