Keeping it Real…
Not going to lie.  These last few days have been hard.  Ok, the 2.5 days before I left on my girls weekend too.  Potty training is NO JOKE!  I haven’t really been pushing her thus far (by the recommendation of her urologist because she had reoccurring UTI’s-she is still on a low dose of antibiotics)
But…I always have her come in with me, and we’ve been talking about it for the last 6 months.  She actually got on the potty 6 months ago and went right away.  Of course I thought “Omg, why did everyone say this was so hard??  This will be a piece of cake!”  And then…she boycotted it.  HARD.  Like back bend, screaming, exorcist head spinning boycotted it.
So…I let it go.
Well, we went to Costco last week and saw some undies.  I thought I’d ask if she was interested.  (I’d asked before, and got a big NO!)  “Ooooooh, big girl panties!  I want horsies!  And…SULLY!” (Monsters Inc)  So, we got them both, grabbed a few books showing that Elmo goes on the potty and came home.  I told her she could only wear them if went on the potty.  Did she want to do that?  Yes!  Really?  Two days before I leave for my first girl’s weekend away??!! 
So, we made a sticker chart, got some stickers, wore the panties around the house, and she went!  BTW, I’m leaving out about 2+ hours of accumulative waiting in the bathroom :{  She managed to go twice the first day, twice on the floor, and a lot more in her diaper/pull up about 2.3 seconds after getting off the potty.
While I was gone, it got put on the back burner, and I’m really no further along than I was almost now a week ago.  Every time I want to throw in the towel, and admit that I’m totally fine with her wearing a diaper to high school if she wants, I think that this last week cannot be in vain!!  It’s a battle of the wills…and while she absolutely inherited my character, I’ve been playing this game much longer. 😉
Wish me luck!!
