I have been reluctant to potty train Adelaide…because it seems like an unsurmountable task. But alas, she has been asking me to sit on the potty so much lately, I pretty much couldn’t avoid it any longer.
Today was Adelaide’s first successful go at potty training! She spent the afternoon naked while I chased after her with a roll of paper towels and constant requests to sit on her potty chair (LOL!). Finally, after three accidents, she made it to the potty!!
I doubt that she really made the connection between that urge or pee and then her action of going to sit on her potty, but what was most important was that I got to experience a little success, which will (hopefully!) spur me on to complete another afternoon (day? weekend? week?) of potty training.
Here is Adelaide, 20 minutes after her successful “pee-pee in the potty” moment, enjoying her reward of watching Pingu (her current favorite tv show).
In her diaper again…but still sitting on her potty!
I still feel completely lost and bewildered and overwhelmed by the task of potty training and am IN NEED of any advice, direction or caution from parents who have gone through this before! Please share!
