To set the scene…. the other day Sophia was squirming when I changed her diaper…I told her if she didn’t like it she’d have to learn to pee pee in the potty.
What do you know, today we come back from the pool and she says “potty”…walks up and sits on down–and a second or two later music starts to play!!!! We were both shocked–I got her the Fischer Price potty that make music when liquid hits it You guessed it, yeah thats right, she did it. She went pee pee in the potty!!! Ha! After congratulating her we decided to get dressed and go play. Play included a trip to Target where we got pull ups, stickers and jelly beans–I know NOTHING for potty training, if you do know something please help me! I’m willing to listen to any and all advice.
Tonight after dinner, same deal. We were putting on “jammies” to go to bed. I sat her on the potty, thinking the first time might have been a fluke. When she got up, I first thought nothing had happened, then we noticed a certain “odor” and realized she pooped in the potty! Out came the jelly beans and a sticker—woohoo!
Ok she taught herself. I guess, we’ll see how this goes. I was originally thinking we would wait and get “settled” back in St. Thomas before we took this on but apparently the fun starts now.
I alternate between amazement and fear, if you have any advice please let me know!
