So I have started the oh-so-fun task of potty training Miss Ali. She has been telling us for the past week that she wants to go potty.. so I decided to take advantage of her interest. I have confined us to the house, and every 10-12 minutes or so I take her to sit on the potty. I give her 2 M & Ms each time she sits, and a whole handful of M &Ms when she tinkles IN the potty...
Here's some stats from our first day:
Number of times Ali actually went in the potty: 5
Number of times Ali went pee pee on the floor: 4
Number of times Ali told me she had to pee: 2
Number of times Ali pooped in the backyard: 1
Number of times Ali pooped on the living room floor, then stepped in it and smeared it all over the carpet: 1
So here we are on day 2 of this
horrendous, fantastic experience. We have already peed on the floor once are hopefully going to make it to the toilet next time. I also find myself in the depths of guilt- because we are staying home and near the potty- this kid has watched more Mickey Mouse, Yo Gabba Gabba, and Jack's Big Music Show then I care to talk about.... here's hoping it's all worth it!
