This blog post is more a call out for help or maybe a little encouragement that this too shall pass.
Potty training is hard and we have just started. It is not coming naturally, like I SO hoped it would. I thought if we waited until we were just about three it would be so much easier and just happen. Well I was mistaken.
Now let me re-tell (myself) that we have only just started. I guess I never thought of this as a process.. I thought of it as – when it’s time we will do it and it will be done. Day care tried a few months ago and gave up claiming “your son does not give into peer pressure.” To which I replied, well I guess that’s a good thing for life- maybe not potty training though.
Well things are getting mighty messy around here. The wood floors, the couch, even the stairs they are all targets of the “potty training.” I have a 12 year old dog that we crate during the day due to accidents and now I have an almost three year old who is also having accidents. OH and the dog, yep he decided to have an accident last night, to fit in or maybe to re-mark his territory.
This is a short post on a subject I am sure I will be writing and pondering a lot more about on this blog. For right now I am reaching out into the bloggy blog world to find a little bit of love for a mom and dad who are just starting this potty “process”.
What has worked for you? Any words of advice?
