I have the best little girl!
I know I am totally biased because she is mine but we had such a great day together and her learning to use the potty. This morning I took her to school in her diaper because I wanted to start when we got home. Once we got home I took her diaper off and said, "No more diapers!" She repeated me with "No mow dipeys" The best she could say diapers. She immediately ran to the potty and put herself on it and went pee. Sweet first potty was a success and no mess! I got out crayons and a coloring book so we could have something to do while we wait for her next potty urge. She all of a sudden looks at me with this funny face and says, "POOP" it was too late the squatting position she was in made it move too fast and it was on the floor. About 2 hours after that she ran to the potty again and got up on her own and went pee. I gave her lunch and put her down for a nap. She slept in her bed with nothing on. She took about an hour and a half nap she woke up dry and when went right to the bathroom to pee. I had taken a shower during her nap. Once she woke up I blew dry my hair and then we went into the bathroom so I could straighten it. In the 45 minutes it takes to do my hair she went pee once and poop once both in the potty all by herself! I guess I shouldn't say all by herself I did wipe her :) Right before we went to get the kids she was in the kitchen and she started to pee and stopped herself and ran to the potty where she put the rest. I call that a half miss ;) Then I we had to go get the kids and pay some bills (mortgage and what not) along with dropping stuff off at the school office. So I put a diaper on her which she did not want to wear one bit. Once we got home I took off the diaper and it was completely dry she had it on for almost an hour. Then she had another half miss with the pee. After that miss the rest of the night was complete success with 5 pees in the potty. When I put her jammies on she did not want to wear the pull ups I bought her though she did not win that battle. I don't want to be waking up in the middle of the night to a puddle of pee. I will be surprised if she wakes up dry tomorrow but we'll see. I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow and my friend is coming over so that her training won't be interupted. It is the one the doctor told me to make in 3 weeks. I'm not that patient. More updates tomorrow on the potty training and doctor.
