I am so proud.
Especially because, she did it all on her own.
All I did was not get her dressed for three days when I had no car and was stuck at home anyway.
And she did the rest.
Eventually we ventured out to a park, and I brought the potty (I was that Mom) and harped on her endlessly to use it.... and she just kept running right past me.
She wanted nothing to do with pottying at the park.
To my surprise... she could hold it.
You see, now that I've potty trained both a boy (in five days) and a girl (in one day), I can tell you that it's true... not only do girls catch on faster... but they can.... HOLD IT.
While boys just piddle all day long in the beginning until they get tired of peeing on themselves... girls actually just hold it and go about their day.
Since I know someone will ask, Girlfriend was potty trained at 22 months, and Boyfriend at 25 months.... both were trained in June.
I tried unsuccessfully to potty train both kids in April (Boyfriend in 2011, and Girlfriend in 2013) and failed in large part, I believe, because it wasn't warm enough... and who wants to be running around with no pants on in the cold???
Potty training in the summer is the ONLY way for us.... the hotter, the sunnier, the more time outdoors... the better!!
Girlfriend is so proud of herself and loves to clap for all of us when we use the bathroom... potty training equals having your own built in cheerleader.
Speaking of cheerleading... she has been waking up DRY from nap and bed, so you better believe I am jumping up and down and screaming for her at the crack of dawn every day.
The end of buying diapers?? YES PLEASE!!
Sigh..... this just puts us one step closer to her not being a baby at all anymore.
Next up... getting rid of her crib.... when she's nineteen.
