So, we have been very half- hearted in our potty training efforts. VERY half- hearted.
After hearing what all of you experienced moms had to say about how long some of you waited to train your kids after adoption, and how to tell if a child is ready, we thought we should back off a bit, and give it more time.
Little M has decided to take matters into her own hands. She likes m & m’s.
Little M has three potty words: poopoo, weewee, and poppy (potty). She has the poopoo down pat, and will tell us when it is coming, and she needs to go to the poppy. She will even hold the poopoo until she can get to the potty!
The weewee, not so much. She will go if you put her on the potty, but she won’t tell us before hand that she has to go. She will, however, tell you she wants to go poppy after she has already done the deed.
Hmmm, I am baffled. And since I have not been actively potty training, I will most likely not do anything about it, but continue to cheer and dole out m & m’s when she does go on the potty.
I am in no hurry, and rather enjoy the ease of diapers.
I hope she never learns how to say potty correctly. I love hearing her run through the house on the way to the bathroom shouting, “Poppy! Poppy!”
Also, potty training still stresses me out, and makes me sweat. That is all.
