Oh yeah, it's me. So two weeks ago today I embarked on the 3 day potty train plan. Don't count that first day and I can count her accidents on one hand. That's right FIVE! Two that next day on Wednesday, two the following Sunday, 1 a week later on Thursday and that my friends has been it. The girl is doing phenomenal! She even reached a huge achievement finally landing a deuce at school. That has been the only major trial in this whole process. She doesn't like to poop on the potty. However, she also will not go in her underwear. So we often do this up down dance forever until she finally goes. Today was not so bad though it was like 5 minutes of up/down. Maybe we are on our way. The more often she goes, the more comfortable she will get. I'm hopeful anyways, I had the same darn issues with both boys and deserve an easier go. ;)
I am so proud of my little girl and heck I'm proud of me too. :) And the rest of the family and caregivers. They've been wonderful through all this. Miss Jill even made her an adorable potty book. It's so darn cute.
Sometimes however when we've gone to pee for the fourth time in an hour I do think diapers were certainly easier and more convenient. However, the closer she gets to her two year old birthday the more attitude she seems to give and the more intense of a tantrum she throws. I guess I'd rather have the fight now, rather than later and now it hasn't been much of a fight. As for saving money? I think I bought months worth of cost of diapers in new underwear, at least that in new potty seats, the laundry for a while was much more often.
And did I also mention that she has been staying dry at night and for naps too? I'm in freaking shock over here. I don't remember the last time she peed the bed though I know it was in the last week, but not since the weekend for sure. Amazing!
So I said I'd be singing this lady's praises if it worked I must give credit out there. 3 Day Potty Training There is the link for anyone who is interested. I guess Ashley was just ready. I still know there could be accidents here or there but for now I'm calling her potty trained. We take her out and about and have no problem. We do have to bring her little purple potty seat with us but I guess I'll deal with that. Somehow I'm thinking diapers may just be a bit more sanitary than putting our potty ring on all these toilet seats. But I'm not going back there, I think the diaper stage in my life is finally over. Happy/Sad. ;)
