Trying Potty Training Again!!


Alright so most of you had probably read my post at the beginning of Dec 08 and I was starting to Potty Train Alaya. Well I gave up after 3 days!! It was horrible! The first 2 days she did good then 3rd day she just kept going in her panties. I was just lazy!!! Well last Thursday Adam left for Idaho to go sell and I decided to just DO IT and not give up this time. Well today it has totally paid off!!! She went potty all day long in the toilet!! ahhh what a relief from cleaning up pee and poop!! She is doing so awesome!!! She is even telling me when she needs to go and has started going on the BIG potty instead of her potty(she wanted to do that on her own). I think what really did the job was I was in desperate need of help on Saturday, so I was racking my brain trying to think of things that will influence her to go in the potty(cause I sure wasn't doing anything). Then it hit me get a movie about going Potty. So I ran to Wal-mart real quick and all I could find was ELMOS POTTY TIME. She loves it!!!Ever since she has watch it she has been going on the Potty!!! So if your kid is ready and they like Elmo, go get it! It is pretty funny!!! Also some of you might think I'm mean but I read if you have them help you clean up their mess they made, then that will help them to stop going in their panties(Yes I have made her help me). They also said to let them stay in the messy panties for a min or two they can understand that it is uncomfortable. I can't give up, no more going back to diapers only for nap and bed time for now. AHHH!!! I can do it. It has been the hardest thing yet, but it is slowly getting better!!!

Good job. That is a great idea!! I am going to have to remember that for Jaydee. Not that I am ready to do that yet. I think I might go crazy. I am not looking forward to that.

That is awesome! Good job! We got that movie for Hazel's birthday and she loves watching it, but hasn't applied it to her life yet (maybe because I really haven't tried training her yet...)

Keep it up! Sounds like Alaya's learning fast.
