a weekend of potty

Nothing exciting going on. We have spent a lot of time at home this weekend potty training. It is not going well. She is so damn stubborn. She pottied once in the potty and lots on the carpet. I think it is a total control issue. She shows lots of signs of being ready but maybe she isn't. So hard to tell.

This is perfect potty training attire.

Our gigantic, evil cat Hoosier. I realized she had never been in the blog. There she is. And Ellie took this pic. Not too bad!

Proof that she is nice to Ellie. Paige is convinced she is going to eat Ellie in her sleep.

Chillaxin' on the couch with puppy.

Goofy look in the "cave" aka basement family room. Coziest room ever.

Watching Land Before Time for the 364th time.

I was going to post a pic of her on the potty, but they were all just too personal. You never know who's reading...but trust me...she has spent most of the weekend on one. Can I just say that I am not enjoying potty training.

I'm in the same boat and not enjoying it either. I think Sydney is ready too but we sit and sit and then sit some more on the potty with nothing. She went on it once but I think it was by accident. Now she doesn't want anything to do with it again. It's frustrating but hopefully they will be out of diapers before kindergarten :)

go go go go go will work. It takes 21 days to make something a habit. We subscribed both times to the 72 hours, $72 philosphy. Hit it hard for 72 hours and then pay $72 to have your carpets cleaned! :)

Hey! I have that same carpet that you have in the tv room.

My daughter was such a pain in the butt with potty training. I think I ended up bribing her with My Little Pony underwear. I told her she couldn't have them until she went only on the potty and nowhere else.

It took a while but she finally did it. In her own time, of course.

Peace -Rene

I feel your pain. It took forever to finally get Loretta to pee in the toilet and she will be 4 in May and she still refuses to do poopie in the toilet. Ugh! I'm so not looking forward to potty training the twins.
