Potty Training Update: There are some good days, like today!

There have been a few breakthroughs. First... we finally bought training pants (those disposable kinds). At home Iman is comando, and when we go out, I put the trainers on. So far they've been working well. She feels like it's still underwear, so she's more careful about telling me.

Today we went out and she told me she had to pee both times she had to go. YIPEEE!! (nobody curse her... PLEASE!)

So things are sarting to look up a little. We still have plenty of accidents, but slowly things are improving. Maybe this wasn't so bad after all...

Potty training is a classic "the darkest hour is just before dawn" sort of thing. You're both doing great...and like I said when you first started this, the one thing I can promise you is that she will NOT go to college still wearing diapers!

Lorraine's right - it's always important to remember that none of their phases ever really last, even though when we're in the middle of them they feel like they'll last forever.

I've been thru the potty training thing twice. With Boy1 it was easy in the beginning and then for some reason got harder. With Boy2 it was hard it the beginning and got easy quickly. you just never know. That said, I think it is really important to keep the pressure off. (Both of you!) Her accidents and relapses are just that and not a reflection of the kind of mother you are.
