Vivian: Potty Training – Day 4

This was going to be a tough one. I was hosting the school staff party at our house, and I wasn’t sure how I was going to keep track of pottying, but I also didn’t want to put her in a diaper. I decided to just let it go and see how she did.

9:55 a.m.
Put her on the potty after breakfast, and 20 minutes later, she went poopy! Yea!! No tinkles though.

9:55 a.m. (yep, that’s right) accident #1
I figured I’d set the timer for 20 minutes to catch her, but that was WAY too long. She went while she was washing her hands! Guess I’m still learning too. I should have had her sit there just a little longer.

11:30 a.m.
I put her on the potty as I was getting ready for the party, and she went after about 30 minutes.

12:45 p.m. accident #2
She had been playing with bubbles, so it might have happened before this time, but I’m not sure – by this time the party guests had all arrived and I was not quite as attentive.

2:20 p.m.
Again, she went about 30 minutes after I put her on the potty to try.

3:00 p.m. accident #3
This time she had an accident just minutes before the timer for having her try the next time. I was feeling like we were going back to that first day!

I put her back on the potty after that accident, and she sat there a LONG time before she went.

5:15 p.m.
I put her on the potty to try, and she went within 10 minutes.

5:25 p.m. accident #4
I said today might be a road block, didn’t I?

6:00 p.m.
I put her on the potty again to try. She didn’t go, and we didn’t make her sit because dinner was ready.

6:30 p.m.
She said she had to go during dinner, and went on the potty!

7:30 p.m.
Jeremy put her on the potty one last time before bed, and she went, but I’m not sure how long it took!
