more on the potty

Emilia went pee-pee on the potty at daycare yesterday! This is GREAT! The last 2 days she has sat on the potty at all changing times, but yesterday at the 4:00 change, she went on the potty! I was so excited!!!! We are going through diapers like it is nobody's business....she is getting to the point where when she pees once, she will take the diaper off and hand it to me.

When we got home yesterday, I stripped her down and we went and got in the pool, which is becoming an everyday thing now. So, when she was ready to get out, I just put a diaper on her until she was ready for her bath....well, she peed in her diaper and she took it off and brought it to me, then she turned to walk off and all of a sudden she turned around real fast, her eyes were really big, and she grabs her butt and starts saying "pee-poo" over and over again, so I asked her if she wanted to go to the potty and she says no, so I put the diaper back on her because I knew what was about to happen. She runs over behind the dog crates, squats down and got real quiet for a couple minutes. When she was done, she comes out, says "pee-poo" again and took her diaper off....a couple of doody balls did fall out, but for the most part, she was real clean about it and tried to help me out.

Ohhhh, the joys of potty training...

yeah, THIS is what nobody tells you about...chasing a child around the house. what an adventure!!! sounds like she is doing well. it took the diva until she was almost 3 to get the potty training down. she never minded being wet, so that was a challenge.
