Nov. 18, con't

We set the microwave timer for 30 minutes. Every thirty minutes, we sat on the potty to try it out.

When H was in charge, one accident (within first thirty minutes). It wasn't ENTIRELY his fault. I usually put M on her potty chair when I'm starting her bath water. She does her thing while the water is running. Well, H was rinsing out a paint brush. Running water. You get the idea. I didn't mention that one little thing to him. The sweetest part of the entire thing: M ran to the bottom of the stairs and screamed at me "Mommy, tee-tee POTTY!" But I just didn't get downstairs fast enough.

When I was in the charge: Lots of sitting. Only one deposit. But she was so proud! We sang and danced around the dining room.

I hope tomorrow is fun and successful. I'm not really concerned about it, but I feel like M is ready. We're just giving it a try.

That's how we did it with BubTar. He caught on pretty quickly! I think we were lucky. LOL. KayTar seems like she's going to put up more of a fight.

Good luck with it! It takes a bit for them to get the hang of it. I'm still waiting for nighttime to be stable before I take away the pullups for that.

Sounds like a good start! Nadia uses the potty chair several times a day, but she doesn't stay "dry" and no panties for her yet. I think she could catch on pretty well if I were disciplined to bring her every half hour...but I'm in no hurry for it, and I'm lazy!!
