Do the Pee Dance!

Huge accomplishment in the house today!  Taylor finally peed on the potty for the first time!  Yes!!!  I know she just turned 2, but by 2 Kielyn was potty trained.  She was the best, she basically potty trained herself, peed for the first time in the potty at 15 months and we were diaper free during the days by 2.

Taylor is a different story.  I haven't pushed her to potty....maybe gentle persuasion would be a better term.

Me:  "Tay, do you have to go potty?"
Tay:  "No thank you mommy."  {seriously she is adorable when she says this, she is sweet and innocent looking}
Me:  "You can go on the big girl potty."
Tay:  strips off her clothes and diaper and runs to the bathroom.  Sits on the potty for 5 minutes, "Nothing come out mommy."
Me: "Are you done?"
Tay:  "Yes."  and then she runs off naked.

Basically as soon as her feet hit the carpet in the hallway she pees on the floor.  So I kind of gave up and decided not to bug her anymore.  Well tonight we were getting ready for bed and she took off her shorts and diaper and said potty.  I asked her if she wanted to go, she said yes and then she actually did it!  She peed in the potty!!!!

Kielyn and I made a huge deal about her going potty!  We did the potty dance, sang a song and called both Grammas!   Now if she does it again this week I will be ecstatic!  My sister says she's not lazy, she's smart!  Maybe she's right!  We are on our way to being diaper free and I can't wait!

We had our first potty back in July and i was thrilled! Luci started a new in-home preschool when i went back to work in Aug, and she has started to not want to go as much. sad face. but she is only 2 also and has time. we just encourage A LOT. My husband started giving her pennies to put in her piggy bank every time she goes on the "elmo potty." This seems to help a lot. Now to get her comfortable enough to want to go at daycare!

Congrats to Tay! And good luck to you :)

Thats fantastic news!! Mason will be 2 on the 28th and decided back in August that he would start using the potty too!! He is doing really well, zero accidents during the day, and waking up at least 4-5 nights out of the week dry!! Whoohoo for a diaper free houses!!

yay! My daughter potty trained while she was sick! We had been talking about it with her just like you...."Do you have to go? You can go on the big potty" etc. And then she got shots, got sick and all of a sudden wouldn't go potty anywhere but the big potty!!! Such a monumental moment!
