It’s true, poo can be one of the most exciting moments of your day when you are a parent who is potty training. My 3 year old has been a little bit behind when it comes to using the potty due to some medical issues, but we are now able to jump in and get her going with it and it has been a tough road. I will completely and totally admit that I am a slacker when it comes to being diligent with her about it, I am just so tired during the day and so crazed that the idea of fighting with a very willful 3 year old to “PLEASE” sit on the potty is not very appealing to me. I have been trying to bribe her with things like chocolate and a stamp card to help her get more interested in doing her business and leaving it a plastic bowl instead of a synthetic pull-up, but she gets bored with my clever tricks easily and they usually only last a few days.
So I let it slide a lot of the time, but when daddy gets home he is excellent about it and tonight she did an amazing big girl poo on her potty, and not even thirty minutes later I am so excited about it I decided to get a quick blog post in to share my joy and happiness with the world.
I usually like to include a pictures in my posts, and it seemed that the right one for this should be the big poo in the potty, but then my brain filter kicked in and I decided perhaps just a nice generic fun photo of a potty would be enough to get the point across.
Hopefully we can get on a roll and get her potty trained by the fall when she starts JK. I am also just now starting the twins on their potty training adventure as they just turned 2 and are showing great interest in sitting on their potties. Its going to be a long naked summer staying close to home while I try and train 3 kids to use the potty…..Good Times!!!!
