Vivian: Potty Training – Day 2
Get ready, we’re at it again!
She did not go in her short try right when she got up. After breakfast, I said she should try, but she insisted she didn’t have to, so I let her go.
9:25 a.m. accident #1
Just minutes after breakfast, she had a small accident. She came to me and said, “try again tinkles in potty.” So I sat her on the potty and waited…
10:25 a.m. (yes, one HOUR later)
She went – POOPY! Wow, was she proud, but I don’t know if she had any idea what she did. I made a HUGE deal of it. This is a great step! It was seven months before Mac would poop on the potty – this was very encouraging after how yesterday shaped up. And as a bonus, I spent so much time in there with her, I got the bathroom cleaned!
She went tinkles on the potty again, this time after sitting for about 30 minutes.
Went on the potty! This time after about 15 minutes. After this, we put a diaper on her in preparation for leaving for a graduation party.
She came to me (remember, she has a diaper on now) and said, “try tinkles again.” I had her sit on the potty, and she went right away!!
She went once in her diaper while we were gone. We got home from the party around 5:30 and put underwear on right away – this time her diaper was dry, so it had probably been a couple of hours since she went. I set the timer to have her try after about 20 minutes.
I’m in the laundry room, and I hear Mac calling for me. “Mommy, Vivian’s going potty again!” Oh no, I picture the mess… But when I got there, she was already sitting the potty – underwear dry! She went within 5 minutes. Woo hooooo!
She said she had to go again. Sat her on the potty, but she decided she didn’t have to go when she saw that dinner was ready.
She didn’t go right after dinner. We played outside, and she stayed dry. I sat her on the potty because it had been quite a while. She insisted she didn’t have to go, but it didn’t take long for her to go!
I was very excited about how this day went. While she still had accidents and had some times when she had to sit a long time, it seems like she is starting to get it. The way yesterday was going, I wasn’t sure that was very near in our future!
