potty training in three days? FAIL
They said it was fool-proof! They claimed it worked best! They said, “stay home, naked bottom, push fluids, get potty training done and over with!” Well, folks, it’s not done and over with. Despite only two accidents in three days (once in the restaurant, once a dribble before making it to the bathroom for the rest), I sent my kid off to daycare with plastic pants and underwear, and she had accident after accident. The teachers had to put her back in diapers. Apparently, she would go sit on the potty, but not go, and just pee on the way back to class.
Guys, my girl has a total case of potty stage fright. She can tell me she’s gotta go, but once on the pot, she freezes. I have the pleasure of taking her to the bathroom 20 times an hour til she finally gives in and lets it out, but I get it, the teachers don’t have time for that. She’s got to learn to pee when she gets there! Not only that, but while at home, she holds her pee for upwards of 6 or 7 hours, going to the toilet many times per hour until she lets it go. So yeah, she can hold it… but she can’t get it out when it counts.
I sent candy bars for the teachers today for their efforts. Sounds like they gave it a good go.
Now we are going on vacation, so it’s pull-ups for the plane and airports, and back to full-blown diaperless butt when we’re at “home” in the flat we’re renting or at my girlfriend’s sister’s house. Then the week after vacation, on the days I’m home, we’ll be back at it.
I kinda hate potty training. Maybe I should just hold off til she’s four or five, and we can just have a nice talk about it. Someone give me some words of encouragement!
