the discouraged potty diaries

Remember about two years ago, when Miss M was being an absolute stinker about going on the potty? It was such a power struggle, she discovered right off the bat that she could control the entire situation? She would almost have on purpose "accidents"? Can you believe I would give anything to go back to that now?

At least by three years old, I felt like she knew what she was doing, she was just too smart and stubborn and wouldn't! Oh, those were the days!

Lulu doesn't care! And I guess that means I shouldn't either except I know she's smart enough and dangit, I'm soooooo sick of diapers! If I can't have a baby right now, at least I should have a diaper hiatus! She wants to help change her own diapers-the girl can pee on the pot!

But she doesn't care one whit! She doesn't care if she has an accident, she doesn't care if she goes on the toilet, she doesn't tell me when she needs to go, and half the time, she doesn't tell me if she has already gone! grrrrrr!!

Lulu has always been on her own developmental curve. She didn't crawl until she was a year and then it wasn't quite a crawl! :) She didn't walk until she was 20 months. She was always smart with her speech and language so I know she's a smart chick, but she also beats to her own developmental drum! But I'm impatient! and I'm sick of the weird looks people give me as my obviously three year old talker gets her diaper changed!

okay, i'm done now. I will go back to scrubbing the carpet now.

I feel your pain. I am so sorry. It will happen soon, I'm sure. You are a great mom, just keep going--like I tell myself EVERYDAY!
