I realize that 6+ months ago, on this very blog, I was practically bragging about my not-even-two-year-old being almost potty trained.
Yeah, well, we never got past the almost part, unfortunately.
I think I've been blessed with the most stubborn child on the face of the planet.
More or less every day, after asking her countless times if she has to go potty - and getting a "NO!" response, I eventually lose patience and put her on the potty, ignoring the kicking and screaming, for 30 minutes straight - if not more! ....
I finally take her off after I can no longer stand the hollering coming from the bathroom (sounds something like this: " NO POTTY!!!!" x 1,000,000) .... and less than 60 seconds later, I have a puddle on the floor.
I'm not even kidding.
Trust me, I wouldn't kid about this.
I feel like I am being outsmarted by a toddler!
Not my proudest moment...
And I have tried EVERYTHING.
Bribery, potty chairs, forcing the issue, bribery, ignoring the issue, potty parties, bribery, letting her sit in her dirty diapers, potty seats with Elmo on them, bribery, the potty dance, stickers, bribery, potty books, potty videos ... and more bribery.
I give up.
At least I want to, that's for sure!
(*Note: ya'll CAN comment here on my blog ... in fact, that'd be great! Or do I have to bribe YOU, too!? :)~
