I Hate Potty Training
We talked about it today and he agreed he would pee in the potty and not in his underwear. Yes, he's wearing underwear again today. Of course, he then sat on the potty for about 15 minutes and...nothing. We put his underwear back on..he went downstairs to play...and five minutes later, he came upstairs with wet pants. He had peed on the basement floor. The carpeted basement floor...lovely. On the upside, he actually came and told me right away. The other day, he refused to acknowledge his pants were even went despite the obvious fact that they were. Today, he came and told me as soon as it happened and showed me where he peed. We changed him and he chose to wear underwear again...that's progress. I'm just having a hard time understanding why he isn't peeing on the potty when he obviously has to go. He has gone several times before so it's not a new concept anymore. It's so confusing!
Sorry for the vent but I needed to get it out there. I am happy for anyone whose child potty trains easily..really I am. However, I can empathize with anyone who has some difficulty along the way to dry pants and diaper-free days. For now, we'll keep trying but I am not potty training for the next six months. If we don't see progress this week, we're taking a break!
UPDATE: I just found out from the hubby that he tickled Connor when he went downstairs...this may have contributed to the accident. Let's hope so!
On a much happier note, I'll be posting a recipe for a Rhubarb, Apple, Strawberry Crisp that's delicious and a perfect summer snack/dessert. I hope to post it later today. Then, I've got a couple giveaways coming up soon as well. In fact, I've got a few giveaways coming up and am just waiting on some samples to arrive so I can write about them first.
Lastly, keep those votes coming for Top Mommy Blogs! Things are looking up but I need consistent votes so try to vote daily or at least every time you visit my blog. Thanks!
