Possibly Potty-Training?!?

I have to eat my words from Monday. Audrey was very consistent showing potty-ready signs Monday night-Wednesday morning. So, we bought pull-ups and big girl underwear (in the theme of Minnie Mouse) on Wednesday and I just watched to see what would happen.

She made many trips to sit on the potty, but nuthin. I had to change a lot of pull-ups. We even had an explosion involving Mommy cleaning body, clothes, and floor. Wednesday was not fun, but not horrible. Michael told me that night that he thought she was more than ready to do this, so I continued.

Today, Audrey and I spent the morning running errands, so I wasn't expecting anything. I put her in a diaper for her nap. When I finally got her in a pull-up, she let me know she needed to potty. When it happened, it scared her! Of course! So I had to make it a really good thing. We made phone calls and did a lot of cheering. Let's see what the future brings! Come on Auds!

Wow! What a big girl, Audrey!! Keep it up. The first few weeks are brutal, but if you stick to it (and she gets the hang of it), it will be worth it!!!!

I am SO not ready to potty train Miss Morgan. Yikes!!

Way to go Audrey!!

Daniel and I keep talking about potty training Miss K, but it hasn't actually started yet. Let me know how it goes!

That's awesome! I would just say to be consistent with it, she will have days where she wants nothing to do with it during the process, but just don't give up and those days will pass! Also, we always tried to let them wear panties instead of pull-ups (pull-ups really are just the same as a diaper and my girls would pee in them because they understood the difference between peeing in your panties and getting all wet down your legs and peeing in a diaper that would hold it for you). Generally, having your pants be soaking wet is uncomfortable to them and makes them not want to do that again...and I made them clean up their own accidents. Hope that helps! Good luck, it is sooo much easier when they are potty trained!

Yeah!!! Just in time. :) I know what you mean about scaring your kids. I get so excited I squeal sometimes, and then Hudson doesn't know WHAT to do, but it makes him cry sometimes...

Wow! What a big girl! I tried and tried with Annie...M&M's, treasure box, you name it! I was determined to potty train her before Cason was born...but no luck. About a month after he was born she just decided she didn't want to wear diapers anymore, and went straight to panties! They let you know when they are ready! Good luck! (She's adorable by the way!) :)
