I have successfully potty trained 6 of my children. Some have been easier than others. Some have made me despise potty training and want to avoid it for as long as possible!
I tried twice to get Elli potty trained before the baby came. Weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth comes to mind. She did not want to sit on the little potty or the big potty. I finally decided just to wait until after the baby since it always throws kids off a little anyway.
This past week Dave went back to work and I was on my own. I really didn't want to deal with potty training, but Elli decided she wanted to wear "big girl underwears". She put them on herself, and since that day has not had a single accident. WHAT?!!! She totally comes running when she has to "go bafroom". She prefers going in my toilet so we'll have to help her venture out into the others bathrooms one of these days.
Maybe potty training isn't so bad!
only having to change 1 kid's diapers
saving money on diapers
no more weeping & wailing
