Potty Training is something you can’t avoid if you have kids. Here we are weeks shy of Alivia turning two and we are deep into potty training.
Now lets get something clear. I’m 100% a mom who believes your kids will train when ready and if you rush it your wasting your time. I don’t believe in caving or competing with all of those who gloat about how their kids were trained at one year or fifteen months. Good for you if that is you. You are about 15% of the population. If you are like the rest of us potty training is a challenging endeavor.
Honestly I would be fine with letting our kids wear diapers until they starting telling me it weird they are the only ones still in diapers.
The reason we started this journey already with Alivia is because she no longer wants to use her diaper like she should. She would much rather take her diaper off and use the couch, floor or what ever else looks good. Or she will use her diaper and immediately take it off and do a naked dance of freedom through out the house.
Oh and poop that is a totally different situation we have. If she poops in her diaper and you don’t catch her right away she grabs it and turns into a poop flinging spider monkey. On occasion, she will leave you a poop trail where she has been. It ain’t right. So here we are battling the training and hoping when we conquer this challenge she wont have regression. Please tell me I’m not the only one with a hopped up poocasso?
Wish us luck, and if you are in the same phase hang in there. We will one day train our toddlers.
In the mean time keep your wine stash handy.
