We have had some modicum of success with the potty training. But it has come with a few accidents, a few tears and the likelihood of years of therapy.
Diapers are good. Diapers are needed. Not having diapers is very, very, very upsetting. So, we were upset a little bit this weekend.
Going commando – No Diaper Days! – was fun. Until the potty was required.
Sitting on the potty was fun. Until the Moment of Truth.
So what have we learned? The Magpie has a huge bladder and is capable of holding out for many, many hours. She can use the potty and is [sort of] happy when she does. She would much rather have a diaper. Our friends who did the Weekend Warrior Method of Potty Training have some explaining to do.
It wasn’t a total bust. We had progress but tomorrow she heads back to day care. Where they have potties, but they don’t have half an hour at a time to dedicate to chilling out on the potty. So, now that we have started this, it must continue.
I’m going to be doing lots of laundry.
