Then you start potty training. And this, my friends, this is what you should fear the moment you pee on that stick and you see 2 pink lines. This is what hell is. Don't worry about labor. It's not that hard and your body is wired to make you forget how painful it is. But cleaning poop out of panties and swimsuits and watching your kid go to the corner of the room and push a giant turd out into her princess panties even though we just sat on the potty 2 minutes ago. This is where you find out if you were meant for this stuff, but unfortunetly by this point it's too late. There is a strict no return policy on kids.
It's a good thing we had Cody before I started potty training Sarah. Because had I known all this...she surely would have been an only child.
Truth be told, she's actually doing a pretty good job. We've been going commando at home since Thursday and we've only had one pee pee accident which she did in fact pinch off and finish on the toilet. She's wearing pull ups to bed and is still waking up wet but she drinks a lot all day long so its going to be a while before she wakes up dry. However, the minute we have to put panties on her or a pull up, she poops. And more specifically she poops when we go swimming which is really aggravating and I make her go home so that she learns there's a consequence for her action.
So I know I have more people out here who read my blog then ever comment but I'm BEGGING YOU PEOPLE! What are your potty training tips for getting them to POOP in the POTTY!
Obligatory picture to prove I haven't killed her yet. Thank goodness she so stinkin' adorable. She actually told me, "Mommy, go get the camera and take a picture of mommy and Sarah."
