So, we decided this last weekend to start potty training our 25 month old daughter. This has been the task that I have dreaded since her birth. After researching the topic, talking with family and friends, and going with our gut instinct, we decided to throw a pair of panties on her and see what happens. Well, it has happened many times, all over the floor. Sunday was a pretty good day. After she got the hang of the panties, she started telling us she needed to go “potty.” She actually made it to the bathroom 4 times, and we praised her every single time. Then, she got a special treat afterwards. So, my husband and I are thinking that we have this thing down, and it is going to a piece of cake. Man, were we wrong! Monday comes around, and instead of using the bathroom in the potty 4 times, she pee-pees all over the couch and floor 4 times. And, today, she isn’t showing much interest either. Which brings me to my title for today: Can you talk to the potty chair? If I could, I definitely would. I would give it special treats too. Many people have told us that isn’t real hard, but we haven’t found this to be true yet. We are not losing hope and keeping our fingers crossed that she gets the hang of it sooner rather than later!
