Potty Training

Potty training Addi has officially begun today. I don't know the best way to do it, I just kept her naked all day and kept reminding her not to pee on the floor, while taking her to sit on the toilet every so often. She held it all day, and let it loose when I put a diaper on her to take a nap. We did have one success right before bed, which was the encouragement I needed to continue this process. Thank goodness for M & M's. That girl will do just about anything for a little chocolate. I have helped potty train toddler clients in the past with success, so I am hoping this will be much easier and quicker. I will keep you posted.

Let me know if you learn any tricks. I did see one potty training book at Target that I almost bought & it had a little button you could push that made a toilet flushing sound. Don't know if that helps at all but it was just a random thought.

I hope you don't get nauseated seeing poop on the floor. I couldn't continue the potty training while pregnant. I can't wait to do it again...maybe I'll wait a little longer with the boy. Don't forget to buy her some REALLY cute panties!

Hi Ali,
This message is for Ian. Today I blogged about CJ's bike compnay we were telling you about. If Ian't really interested he said he could Ian one with or w/out the motor for his cost which is SUPER good. Just thought Ian would want to know. Take care, Di

Good Luck!! We started with Peyton about 6 weeks ago and for 2 whole weeks did awesome and hardly had any accidents. Then we went on vacation up to Washington and ever since then she hasn't wanted to do the whole potty thing. It' so hard and probably the hardest thing so far with Peyton. If you find anything that works let me know!!
