Okaaaaay

The potty training here goes on and on and on. And, no, I haven't even started on my youngest yet. Yes, I know that some children learn in one day all by themselves. Apparently, that's not going to happen. (Yet? I can still hope, can't I? Stop whining, Sarah.)


This adorable, funny, friendly child still refuses to poop on the potty. Other "accidents" are rare and he's very proud of peeing on the potty; he frequently announces his accomplishment to anyone within earshot. And I do mean anyone. And anywhere.

I don't know what it will take for him to conquer this thing once and for all. Every time he messes his pants I tell him, "Nathan, you can't do this. You MUST poop in the potty." He replies, "Okaaaay." "Don't do this again.", I admonish him. Again I hear "okaaaaay." Every stinking, messy day. "Okaaaaay."

Which brings me to my point. I totally get Inigo Montoya when he says, "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

Ah... adventures in potty training.

My niece, who is only 19 months, is starting to show interest in her potty chair.

She drags it out into the living room, de-pants and sits down to watch cartoons. This is going to get interesting....

She's always so proud of herself for "using the potty"! lol

INCONCEIVABLE!!!

I love that movie!

My daughter is 15 months old and starts potty training after the New Year-- my sitter's idea, not mine. I am interested to see how it goes, because I think she's young!

Sometimes I am envious of the wildly quick successes of the little girl training stories I hear!

And yet...

May your girls acheive big girl panties at lightning speed!

I dread starting potty training. JDaniel likes to sit on the potty and push, but not when he has anything to do just when he wants to sit on the potty.

He'll do it when he is ready. That's what I keep telling myself....
