All The Way

Remember all of our potty woes?  I really thought we were going to have to have a pull-up intervention. She'd been doing panties during the day just great for quite awhile but she would not poo in the potty.  Instead she would demand a pull-up.  We'd tell her to get her own and off she would go to take off her panties and put on the pull-up.  I tried prizes and sticker charts and even trips to the park.  She would not poo in the potty for any of those things.  Flat out refused.

We sent her to Nanny's for a week, really because T and Coco were both traveling for work.  I reluctantly sent the pull-ups to Nanny's and asked her to get that girl to poo in the potty.  Nanny was up for the challenge and the next thing I see is a picture message of a poo in the potty!  Really?!  How did Nanny just do that?   

I never thought we'd ever see the day, but something just finally clicked and this ladybug is finally potty trained.  No pull-ups over night.  No pull-ups during nap.  She is potty trained.




This is huge ya'll!  After we went a week with no accidents, I went and hid the leftover pull-ups from her so she would not see them and regress.

She just filled up her last sticker chart from all the poos the last couple of weeks and T took her to buy a Jack in the Box.  That's been her pure motivation for the last two weeks...a silly Jack in the Box as her prize.  Evidently, they stopped to look at the bikes in the toy store and he sends me a video of her riding in the store.  Then all of a sudden she's changed her mind.  I'm sure having a car seat on the back of the bike helped make her decision a little easier.

Now all I can think about is...seriously, can this girl be old enough to be riding a bike?

I am so proud of Bug. I'm also happy to have a small part in helping her to not be afraid to use the potty. But she was ready and she gets all the credit.
Love the new bike! She will love taking monkey for a ride. I am one proud nanny.

Put that down for two grandmothers! I am so proud of her and knew she would do it. The pictures of her on the bike is great and so glad she is wearing her helmet! Love, Mimi
