Potty Training, My Little Stinker
Lillian often likes to 'eat' food out of books. Just recently, she started feeding it to us. Then, she started feeding Tyler non-food items, like bees and eyeglasses.
The real adventure this morning has been my feeble attempt at potty training. It went something like this:
(note: Throughout this ordeal, I was giving her juice and water almost constantly.)
8:00- attempt #1 to sit on the potty. Successful, chocolate chip reward given.
8:15 - Lillian requests to wear big-girl panties. Request granted.
8:20 - Lillian has an accident. We have a talk about accidents and I make her sit on the potty. Attempt #2 successful as well. Chocolate chip reward given. Second request for big girl panties. Request granted.
8:35 - Attempt #3, unsuccessful. No chocolate chip.
8:40 - Accident #2. Second talk about accidents. Attempt #4 to sit on potty, unsuccessful. Switch to training pants with vinyl cover.
8:50 - Attempt #5, successful. Chocolate chip.
8:52 - Accident #3. More talks. Attempt #6, unsuccessful.
9:10 - Attempt #7, successful. CC.
9:12 - Accident #4. Mom gives up.
