Because motherhood will never be a perfect science


on September 9, 2012

Can someone tell me why it is so hard to potty train the little munchkin I call Baby girl???

This child has decided that the potty is not for her. Is she ready? I think she is. She tells me when she is having a pee or poo. She doesn’t like the feel of a poo in her diaper. She tries to dress and undress herself and is very independent. Aren’t these the markers for a child ready to potty train? Diva girl was using the potty quite successfully by this age. Yes, I know not all children do things at the same time. But seriously….I’m really trying to get out of the diaper stage before I go bankrupt!

Okay, that was a little melodramatic. But you know what I mean.

Baby girl is really clever too. She knows that if I suspect that she is having a poo, I will tell her that it’s time to use the potty so here’s her routine: stop playing and get really quiet; move to a secluded area like the corner of the sofa by the patio doors; when I ask if she is poo’ing, she holds up one hand to indicate that she needs some ‘me time’ and will not speak to anyone until she’s done; then when she is stinking to high heaven, she’ll either continue playing as if nothing’s happened or say “Mommy, I poo!” because no one would ever suspect…

My question is, isn’t that what the potty/toilet was made for? Some quiet time?
