Vivian: Potty Training – Day 3

Today we’re having a little family breakfast birthday party for Vivian. The plan is to have her in underwear all day again, since we’ll be at home and it will be just family with us…

8:50 a.m.
Sat her on the potty to try after getting up. Went tinkles within about 5 minutes!

9:45 a.m.
She stopped herself and went again!
It’s very cute, she’ll sometimes say, “Go potty, stop right away,” which is from an episode of Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood. Another mom from ECFE told us about it, and I looked it up one day so I’d know where to find it when the time came. She’s seen part of it at least once, but not much more that I know of. It sure stuck fast!

11:05 a.m.
I made her sit and try after breakfast, and she went within 5 minutes.

*big smiles* *excited mommy*

12:20 p.m.
I put her on the potty because it had been a while. I wanted her to try.

12:35 p.m.
She went both tinkles AND poopy! Woo hooooo!!

1:05 p.m.
I put her back on, because there was only a little tinkles before, so I figured she may have to go again.

Jeremy said she was on there for quite a while before she finally went, and she got a diaper during her nap, which she wet.

5:15 p.m. accident #1
She was playing outside and had another accident. I’m not sure how long it was since she had gone this time, though.

6:50 p.m.
Went on potty again, but this time she had been sitting for about 30 minutes.

7:40 p.m.
She wanted to sit on the potty again before bed, but she never did go.

She also didn’t go when she came out of her room to go.

I’m still fairly encouraged. We didn’t make as much progress today, but she does seem to be learning. The fact that she’s now gone poopy on the potty twice is VERY encouraging! We have some possible road blocks coming up, so we’ll see. I AM glad I started when I did. Jeremy was right when he was encouraging me that first day – I would have regretted waiting.

Day Three Summary:
1 Accident
1 Tinkles in diaper during nap
1 Poopy in Potty (!!)
5 Tinkles in Potty
1 False Alarm
