It’s A Privilege to Pee

(Originally posted February 26, 2011 on blogspot.)

Lily only had two accidents today- a number one, and a number two. She does not like to have accidents. Both times, she let us know immediately before that she had to go. She just doesn’t know what to do about it yet. But she is learning (and we are learning) that she can hold it. Our only problem is getting her to understand that she CAN and SHOULD go in the potty. Because instead of having an accident, she just doesn’t go at all, holding it until she nearly explodes and can hold it no longer. I grabbed her mid-stream and we got a decent amount in the potty and of course had a giant celebration when we heard her throne play its song.

We’ve made a few adjustments to the plan:

*For the most part, she’s just running around naked. It doesn’t make much more of a mess, and it’s easier to scoop her up and sit her down. It’s also easier to see if she does go. Plus, it turns out, she doesn’t just hate diapers. She hates pants, period. But that will be step two.

*As long as she’s sitting on the potty, the fruit snacks keep comin’. She has no concept of “just one.”

*The potty is in front of the TV now. I mean, that’s where I’d have mine, if I could.

So we haven’t given up yet! It looks like only one parent will be able to attend church tomorrow, but we’re not changing horses mid, well, you know…
