Please welcome Nolie to officially becoming a true blogging momma… she posted for the first time about poop. I’m sure we’ve all been there.
The dreaded potty training days…
I have 4 kids, and each of them were vastly different when it came it training. Some were easy and one… well — I didn’t think he would ever wear underwear!!
What were/are your experiences?
My first was trained just 2 weeks before his 2nd birthday. We bribed him, he asked for a skateboard, we said yes “but only if you go on the potty”! He was trained in a day – no joke! And then the toilet seat pinched his little tush and it took us 6 months to get him back on the potty.
My 2nd child (my only girl) was poop-trained by 18 months – all on her own – but she enjoyed a good pee in her freshly changed diaper. She reminded me of my cat – whenever I changed the kitty litter he’d come in a mess it all up! She finally got the hang of it just after she was 2.
My 3rd child… a different story completely! We were still trying with him after his 3rd birthday! We’d talk all the time about pooping in the potty and how gross it was in your diaper and he’d reply, “I like it”. My bro-in-law picked him up, smelled his diaper and said, “EWWW!!” to which Li Li responded… “Lick it!”. I would say to him, “Do you want to go on the potty today?” and he quip back, “ummm, today’s not a good day” so yah…. some time before he was 3 1/2 he was finally trained ’cause he couldn’t go to preschool until he was.
My 4th… I don’t remember. WOW!… it’s amazing how fuzzy the details get the more kids you have. He was closer to 3 than 2 though… I think… Do any of my friends remember? LOL
Oh well – he’s 4 now and thank goodness I’m done with diapers!
Now if I could just get the new puppy to stop pooping on my carpet!
