Potty training has been an enigma in the Siek house. Everything says that girls tend to train earlier and easier than boys. Well, I would just like to say that there will be NO trend following here. Julia took over a year & Laura's stubbornness has really reared its ugly head where using the potty is concerned. Sean was done in like 3 days, never any accidents.
For the last 2 days I have sat in the bathroom with Laura while she screamed and cried, basically threw a temper tantrum while on the potty. "No I am NOT going poo poo on the potty. I went tee tee but I'm NOT going poo poo." I would just laugh and she would tell me "don't laugh, it's not funny". The funny part is that I did take a couple of short videos, which I will be happy to show her at some very opportune time when she is older. I am happy to report though that mine and Scott's persistence has won out (for now at least). I am not ignorant enough to say that the PTTs (potty temper tantrums) are far from over, but we have been in panties for the past 4 days and we are NOT going back.
Now I have waxed poetic over certain stages in my children's lives that are difficult to see go, but you will read none of that today.
Today is a day only for rejoicing!!
After 6 years & 2 months we are officially diaper-free!!!!
